May Taught Me

  1. I wish I had sheets made of Ranunculus.
  2. For those of you who didn’t work a brief stint at a florist and therefore aren’t quite sure what Ranunculus is, I’ll have you know it is quite possibly the softest flower in existence.
  3. The more carrots I eat in one sitting, the less I like them.
  4. It is highly inadvisable to get your oil changed the day you wake up with a mysteriously painful crick in your neck that prevents you from turning your head to the left, therefore making it virtually impossible to interact with the service tech at your window.
  5. The first letter of every continent’s name is the same as the last: America, Antarctica, Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa. I like this.
  6. One tablespoon is equivalent to three teaspoons.
  7. Blackberries and almond butter heated in the microwave for 20 seconds is my new favorite treat.
  8. Cory Branan’s new album, Mutt, is a musical masterpiece.
  9. Riding your bike from downtown to midtown to see a movie makes the movie that much better.
  10. I’ve written fewer blog posts this month (a measly three) than any other since I started this thing 29 months ago. Sorry about that.

May Taught Me

  1. Jumping rope is much more cardiovascular than I realized.
  2. Strawberries are the only fruit with seeds on the outside.
  3. Listening to podcasts while running is my new thing. I have listened to conversations on the following topics: dreadlocks, clouds, homelessness, and Lifestraw, to name a few.
  4. For better or for worse, the paint color on the sample strip never looks the same once it is on the wall.
  5. Using a foam roller on your muscles and joints is intensely painful.
  6. Walking in the sand for four solid days makes your feet hurt, but it is unequivocably worth it.
  7. Watching your cell phone battery plummet six floors to the bottom of an elevator shaft is not awesome, but the five phoneless days that follow are actually quite liberating.
  8. Delta Sky Miles are the coolest.
  9. Sliding (even accidentally) during a kickball game automatically makes you feel like  a better player.
  10. My friend Wadeyo is the most generous and informed source of music I know.
