Zamboni. The satisfaction of just saying the word, zamboni, is similar to beating a high score on a game or getting a good grade on an assignment. After saying the word, zamboni, images of an ice skater twirling in the air, memories of ice skating with my friends and the hum of a large machine rolling across the ice instantly appear in my mind. Not only do all of these great memories begin to flood my mind, serotonin is injected into my brain with every pronunciation. If I ever feel the need for a quick pick-me up, I can just say the word “zamboni” a few times out loud and it is guaranteed to make my mood better. I encourage everyone to bring more zamboni into their lives. Not only will it increase your overall happiness, it will make the people around you wonder what in the world you are saying, and then you can explain it to them. This will then become a chain-reaction where everyone will begin to say the word zamboni, everyone could use a little zamboni in their life and you the reader have the power to give it to them. So the next time you are feeling down about life or you need a little pick me up, remember that the English language has granted you a gift, the gift of the zamboni.
