It wouldn't deter me if I had to drive that distance because I only shop at Costco every 6 weeks at most. Like other said, I stock pile toilet paper, laundry detergent, and coffee, and I almost...

I lived alone from age 21 to 29. I loved it. I miss it. I am a social person, but having my own space to retreat to was something I took for granted. The outside world made me question my...

I keep dental floss or dental picks in every handbag, in my car, and in my classroom. I have mild anxiety, and if I have something stuck in my teeth, I can think about little else. It really doesn't...

I ate sugary cereals as a kid, but the thought of eating something very sweet in milk first thing in the morning makes me ill. I have no issues later in the day or evening, though. :D I don't eat...
