Has anonymous become blinded by mysticism or something?
I honestly don't get why you guys seem to associate some magical quality with doing boring shit. Don't get me wrong, YKK and Aria were incredibly well-executed in that their authors could portray mundane, everyday tasks in interesting manners, but therein lies the problem. These tasks are interesting in the manga because the authors make them so. In real life, they are not interesting, THAT'S WHAT MAKES THE MANGA GOOD.
tl;dr Go do some shit that's actually interesting, stop wallowing in self-pity and stop pretending that you're trying to appreciate "little pleasures." They're not "little pleasures." They're BORING.
