I imagine we are all chuffed all of the time. Pleased or displeased, we walk around chuffed all day.
Boy, was I chuffed on Saturday. I had reservations for dinner before a play on campus, all a part of Young Alumni Weekend. I originally had reserved a few tables, before I had heard back from alumni. I kept not hearing, and therefore, I kept contacting the restaurant owner to cancel table by table. The alumni had had a busy weekend-late Friday night gathering and early morning 5K. But I still had to show up at dinner, just in case someone showed up unannounced.
So, there I sat at a table with 4 menus, just me and my book. I waited for 20 minutes. I was brought a free spring ale. At minute 21, I moved to the bar, as to not hold up a table. I ate my dinner and was then brought free homemade, delectable flan. Then free coffee.
People looked at me with sad eyes. But I was chuffed (satisfied) with the extravagant meal, delightful alone time, and inspiring book.
In fact, I might make a habit of these reservations on Saturday evenings. Not a bad plan at all.
