Making monthly visits to one of several Professional Menders, I'm given a questionnaire. I'm asked to check off any complaints or problems I'm having (beyond that fact that nobody looks at the thing anyway).
The survey asks me to rate my "quality of life" on a number scale, zero ( = in the tank) to five ( = walking in tall cotton).
But I wonder what the benchmarks are? How do some of you measure "quality of life?" Enjoyable visits with friends? Regular trips to the public library? Mentoring a third-grader? NetFlix? Ribs on the grill? Morning coffee at a small town cafe, for those of us lucky enough to have that option?
