Eyewear blinds self-conception

My parents took me to the eye doctor right before my fourth birthday. In the examination room, I identified kites and birthday cakes instead of the ABC’s, because I didn’t know my letters yet.

Best things in life should be free

Coffee. Sometimes I make it, sometimes I buy it and sometimes I find it for free – the best mornings are when I find it for free. However, this particular morning I paid $2 for a cup of vanilla hazelnut from Einstein Bros. Bagels. Don’t get me wrong, it was delicious, but it was still […]
