if you had to pick one, what day of your life would you want to live over and over?

In my mind I was thinking the latter, but I didn't think long enough about the title to realize that it would hint towards the former. Honestly, either answer is fine, whatever the question provokes in you.

Recent events in my life would make me want to go back and fix a day.

Picking a perfect day to live over perpetually, however, is more difficult. Would re-living a perfect day over and over, with the knowledge that you were re-living it eventually (and probably quickly) diminish the perceived perfection of the day? The longer you're forced to re-live it, the more opportunity you have to see the imperfect parts of it.

Perfect days should exist as perfect memories, lest they lose their lustre.

Yeah, I can't imagine a day so "perfect" that I wouldn't eventually get tired of the repetition. But if I was not aware of the repetition, and I was enjoying the day anew each time, I can think of a number of candidates, from happy times in my youth to my wedding and honeymoon a few years ago. Heck, even GooCons come to mind as happy days that I wouldn't mind repeating.
