25 And Over →
If you’re over 25 (and frankly, 20), it’s probably time to start acting like a grown-up. Does that mean you have to wear suits and limit your recreational activity to crosswords? Of course not. But it does mean you should think a little bit more about living graciously. I found this great list of 20 good practices for grown-ups, and it’s worth taking to heart. Highlights include:...

I had a hamster that nested in some horsehair, but the horsehair wrapped around its leg, cutting off all circulation to the limb. A microsurgeon delicately removed the hair, and the leg fell off. After that, I had a three-legged hamster. Her name was Juliet. 3. One time I tried to...
