While vegetables and roughage like lettuce are good options to add to your meals if you want some health, it’s all too easy to turn those salads into calorie bombs. Rich ranch dressing, croutons, bacon, cheese – it all adds up. If you want to build better salads, use a variety of different fruits and veggies.
A little bit of dressing is fine, but the lettuce shouldn’t be swimming or drowning in it. Also, ADDING a salad to your normal meal might mean more vitamins and fiber, but replacing something with a salad is an even better option. You’ll feel better afterward.
Start Blaming the Movies
Whether you're a grandmother nestled among grandchildren or a busy working stiff who just wants to relax, a movie is a great time to catch a nap. We recommend “The Tree of Life.” Much better than watching it, trust us. Just let people get some much-needed rest during their time away from the rest of the world.
As long as they aren't snoring, drooling, pushing or sleepwalking, they aren't hurting anybody. Maybe movies need to be a little better at getting people invested instead of just filling the screen with pretty visuals and flashes of color. How about that, huh?
You Mean Nothing to Me
There are some people out there that require constant affirmation from their friends or family, but there are lots that don't. If you say "good job" to somebody and they seem not to care, they might just be thinking about their credit score, one of the numbers that rule our lives whether we know it or not.
Not having to rely on the approval of others can be a good thing, but it does tend to isolate you from real affection. If someone ends up seeing you as a good person, having their approval could be something that means a lot.
The Inquisitive Ghost
The short answer is probably that you cannot. You can't do that. Social media, group chat messages, and the like are all about information, and it seems anathema for them to just let someone slip away without notifying everybody else. Everybody must know that Brody doesn't want to be part of the cousin's Secret Santa exchange or something like that. That's okay, Brody's not very good at giving gifts anyway.
There are, according to the brand deal attached to this picture on Instagram, some chat apps that give you the option to leave without telling everybody. That will be nice for people that are anti-sociable and impolite.
Depends on the Elevator
There are lots of stories and half-understood facts about close-door buttons on elevators. Some people think they don't work at all, some people think there is a mysterious code of button pushes that firefighters or police officers can do to get them to work. The truth is they usually do work, but they won't just close right away.
They have computers attached that ensure nobody gets hurt, and they're not just going to slam shut as soon as your finger brushes the button. Let us say there are certainly some elevators that have working close-door buttons – we use them every day. Maybe you're just impatient.
