So, what are you going to do? You’re going to find yourself a dance partner wherever you are and have yourself a fling. You’re going to be picky (because you can be) and you’re going to be wild (because you’re not wild enough.) More
On my way to Key West, I was stuck in a middle seat. Each man on either side of me did the sign of the cross multiple times before take off. The one to right of me then proceeded to rub his rosary beads on the top of his knee. Obviously, there was nothing subtle about it, so he apologized for it and explained that he absolutely had to do that during the first part of the flight, and then again when the flight was descending.

I always tell myself I should take trips by myself. There are a million places I want to visit, and since all I need to work is my computer and my brain, it’s almost a waste for me not to be constantly on the road, because it would just be so easy! More
