A. A drink before dinner on a perfect summer evening in my garden - or somewhere similar. "Perfect happiness" implies a permanent state of happiness, but it doesn't work like that.

"Goodness me," you say to yourself in mild surprise, "I'm actually in this moment totally happy".
A. Swimming in clear blue water off a tropical beach, looking forward to lunch.
