    There's a Hearing Aid with Your Name on It

    There's a Hearing Aid with Your Name on It

    When I grow old, I’m going to wear a hearing aid so that I can hear myself think. It’s funny how we say things like that. Hearing yourself think is something I have said a thousand times before, but what does that really mean? We’ve all said things that we wish we could take back. But once we see the reaction of the person we are talking to, it’s too late to catch yourself. Thinking things through before saying them is the best policy, but it’s not always easy to do that. I think you lose spontaneity if you havr to think through everything you plan to say. Speaking your mind can be dangerous, so watch what you say.

    Sleep Inertia

    Sleep Inertia

    We are all familiar with that feeling during the first 15-minutes after waking up in the morning. Our eyes are crusty, our breath stinks, our hair is a mess, and we feel grumpy and sluggish. Waking up in the morning is always hard. You sit up in bed but you’re still actually asleep, and all you want to do is roll over and hit the snooze button. Waking up in the morning becomes even harder in winter when it’s all warm and cozy in bed, and the thought of getting out of it is not so appealing. Even putting toothpaste on your toothbrush can seem complicated when you are half asleep.

    An Unexpectedly Fabulous Side Effect of Not Drinking

    An Unexpectedly Fabulous Side Effect of Not Drinking

    Last week, a professional chef invited me to his house for dinner—a six-course meal that included homemade pork sausages, beef meatballs, lamb, spinach risotto, ravioli, a cheese board, and a three-tiered coconut cake. The chef marveled at how much food I could put away. “How can you eat this much and stay so svelte?” he inquired, as I served myself a third lamb chop. The answer came as soon as he asked me if I’d care for a glass of wine. “No, thank you,” I said. “I don’t drink.”
