1.  A phone call from my kids, 47%.

2.  A big steak, 41%.

3.  Some peace and quiet, 38%.

4.  Watching a baseball game with the family, 38%.

5.  A few beers, 35%.

7.  A glass of wine, 34%.

8.  To watch whatever I want on TV, 34%.

9.  A glass of whiskey, 29%.

10.  An expensive physical gift, like an Apple watch, 29%.
