I’m sure you’ve been there. You come home from a long day of travel—exhausted and famished—only to open up your refrigerator to see it stocked full of nothing. Bah. You just want food. Preferably fresh food if you’ve been eating your meals off of airplane trays for far too many hours.Read more...

Every time I write either “affect” or “effect,” I have to pause for a second to double-check myself.

That goes double when taking any form of public transit, where your hands touch the places all the other hands of people who are just as gross as you have touched (relax, it’s…Read more...
