Anxiety Hack

[S]o much angst is generated at worrying about ourselves. Lots of research suggests that doing something nice for someone else generates a positive sense of well-being. If you find yourself overcome by anxious thoughts or feeling sorry for yourself about something, find something to do for someone else.

Avocados

Already ripe avocados? Get out of here with that nonsense, Ralphs. I’m from New York, where, in lieu of avocados, grocery stores put out six hundred petrified dragon eggs and shoppers must squeeze every last one of them before buying the softest but still rock-hard option, and then bring it home and watch it go from unripe to completely rotten without ever once being edible. That’s how New Yorkers do avocados.

This made me laugh.
