On What's the Best Time Your Family Has Ever Trolled You?

When I was a kid, my Dad used to tell me, "eat your food, there are children starving in Bethesda."

This was a hilarious play on the whole "children starving in X poor country" joke, which I was not familiar with, because Bethesda is one of the richest suburbs of DC where I grew up, which I also did not know.

So, once I was hanging out with my best friend's family and they were visiting a cousin in Bethesda, and I very solemnly informed them that there were children starving there.

My favorite thing is the 'n' in "Henna 'n' Placenta." Like someone said, it has to be kicky and fun!

On "Through rain, snow, sleet, or hail, and the gloom of night"

Someone tell me about holiday tips. I had never heard of them until this year, and when I brought them up at a family dinner over Christmas my Dad told me that government employees aren't allowed to accept more than (some small amount of money; he is a retired federal employee, not with the postal service). How do I do them? I love my mail guy.

On How Do You Get Shit Done?

@hungaryforchile I am majorly into your 3rd bullet point--at work, if I have a ton to do I am a champion (but a stressed out, pissed off champion who doesn't leave the house or cook any food), but if I have nothing to do everything takes f o r e v e r.

2015 might be the year I finally try to change things in terms of productivity.
