Ten Things

Ten things I learned this weekend while visiting Tucson, Arizona:
1. Even if your tube of toothpaste has only one ounce of paste in it, they won't let you carry it on a plane if it is in a tube that says "4.2 oz."
2. If there is a problem getting an item through security, it is better to just let it go and smile. You might have a logical argument about something weighing "one ounce," but it's not worth losing flying privileges for the rest of your life.
3. Listening to Cyndi Lauper's "All Through the Night" while walking through the airport helps to alleviate anger and tension about having to "surrender" cavity-fighting toiletries. (That's what she really said, "Sir, are you willing to surrender this toothpaste?")
4. Kandee & company at Latter Day Cottage inspire me to be a better person.
5. Once I start talking, I tend to talk, and talk, and talk...
6. Everything good happened in 9th grade.
7. During a concert don't tell the audience how hairy you are. You might think they'd laugh, but you'd be wrong. They mostly wrinkle their noses in disgust and say "ew."
8. 8, I forgot what eight was for.
9. There is something in the water in Arizona that makes the locals really, really, ridiculously good looking.
10. Water and a toothbrush don't really get all the gunk off of your teeth. If only I had an ounce of toothpaste...
