Fairies, what fairies?

Some of my friends get that I think like this. Or rather, not quite like this, but in full agreement with one of the sentiments expressed here. Namely that reality is not boring. Admittedly they normally come to understand this, I think, when I'm in the midst of one of my rants about how cool stuff that we (as a race) have figured out or can do.
The other way I usually express this, when I'm talking to people who insist that ghosts and gods are walking amongst us:
"Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?" - Douglas Adams.
