#357 When that baby on your flight finally stops crying

#364 When you get caught in the rain and you just don’t care

Water, water, everywhere. Most of our brains and our blood and our bodies are water. Most of our babies and our beagles and our baths are water. Water rinses apples and washes cars. Water steams carrots and cures SARS. (Study … Continue reading ?

#369 Finally getting something for free off your loyalty card

There’s something in the dark. Floors creak and doors squeak as furnaces click and ticking clocks tick. Fridges hum and oven burners pop as garage doors close and footsteps flip flop. Sometimes it sounds like there’s a monster hiding deep … Continue reading ?

#419 Correctly guessing if a door is push or pull

Doors can be trouble. Strutting to the mall, strolling to the store, you spy those glassy doubles in the distance just waiting for you to size them up and give them a big push or pull. Sure, it looks easy, … Continue reading ?
