    Your Shoes Are Killing Your Feet

    My obsession with shoes started at an early age, probably when I was just old enough to put on my mother’s high heels and wobble around the kitchen.

    Tips for Tipping in Every Food Scenario

    Tips for Tipping in Every Food Scenario
    We’ve all been there. I order my small black coffee, hand the barista my debit card, grab the pen to sign off, and halt at the gratuity line. Am I supposed to add something here? Am I cheap if I don’t? Can I just pretend I already tossed some change in the tip jar? I don’t know—and it’s far too much ...

    Eleven Annoying Facebook Buddies to Defriend

    Eleven Annoying Facebook Buddies to Defriend
    Sure, Facebook is great in a lot of ways. Without it, I’d never know about my high school acquaintances’ getting married and having babies; it keeps me tethered to my friends who live far away and helps me stay in touch with friends who I don’t get to see much anymore. Best of all, it provides me with a forum in ...
