On a recent camping trip, after a long and arduous climb pushing our bikes up a rocky trail, a friend said: ‘Our camping trips are always exclusively type 2 fun!’. Not having any fun at that particular time, I asked her to explain after I caught my breath. She said: ‘Well, type 1 fun is like an amusement park ride. It’s fun right then and there. Type 2 fun is when you feel miserable in the moment but you remember it as fun later.’ I don’t know if she made this up herself or not, but I get it.
