FIFTY things! Good for you!
Um, they have a Nair for faces, by the way. There's a reason I know this.

I could never come up with 25 things! Of course I think I'm totally normal, I'd have to have someone else come up with my list! But it'd probably be WAY longer than 25! :)

Hot flashes can save you a little money in the winter--cutting back on your heating bill, you know. But I will worry about you in the summer, down there in Texas. And, unfortunately I can't think of a single positive thing about the mustache. But none of this has hurt your humor and that's the important thing.
