Type 1 fun, type 2 fun

Yesterday I listened to an interview of an astronaut who spent nearly a year on board the space station. I was surprised at something he said. When asked if he had fun he replied: It was a type 2 fun. He then explained: A type 1 fun is like the fun you have on a roller coaster ride. A type 2 fun is one where it’s not fun when you’re doing it, but once it’s over, then you realize how awesome and amazing it was.

Each evening I take a cold shower. It’s a type 2 fun – not fun when I’m taking the shower, but once it’s over I feel fantastic.
