I grew up riding shotgun a lot. My dad was a teacher so summers were spent fiddling with the radio dial as we dropped my mom off to work, took my sister to swimming lessons, and waited in bank lineups. Since bank machines weren’t invented yet those lineups were long and slow ordeals —...

#71 Closing your eyes and making a wish

Blowing out candles is pressure. Lights are off, song is over, and a standing circle of everyone you know crowds around as you sit facing a giant cake covered in a flaming forest of candles. Someone screams for you to make a wish and you’ve suddenly got two seconds to think of something...

#76 When everything you own is fully charged at the same time

No low bars, no dark screens. No redlines, no flatlines, no waiting in between. Locked and loaded in full-bar paradise makes you feel a little bit invincible. “I could last forever,” you think, strapping a charged laptop in your bag, stuffing a juiced up cell phone in your pocket,...

Bow down, dirty rascals. When you’re king of castle the entire school kneels before you: 1. Romeo has left the building. Those annoying older kids who got all the lead roles in school plays and starter spots on sports teams have graduated and gone far, far away. So wherefore art thou...
