Five Things that Don't Suck, Random Wednesday Edition

1. snickerdoodles
2. the perfect skirt
3. dog ears*
4. watering cans
5. the word "braggadocio"

*actual dog ears, but if you want to fold down the corner of a page while reading, you go ahead and do that. Texts are living documents--they're conversations between writer and reader, and don't let anyone tell you what the proper way is to engage in that conversation. Except with library books. People who dog ear library books are jerks.
