It’s true. And I still have friends. And no, it’s not because all bad breath is equal over the internet. Despite how unseemly my confession must seem, I didn’t give up toothpaste in an attempt to create a six foot “personal space bubble.” My mouth is actually minty fresh as I type this – I just took a closer look at the label and decided that toothpaste and I needed to break up.

Maybe you free climb 200 foot cliffs, play underwater hockey, or race down an active volcano on a handmade sled. Me? My version of extreme sports involves racing through the house to put pants on everyone when someone pulls up in the driveway.Read More »
