  1. Just received detailed instructions for caring for a pink seahorse stuffed animal. Including what to do if she gets hungry or starts whining.

  12. The gas station near my house recently replaced all their pumps. The new ones have these wonderful physical buttons (like an old school telephone). It’s a joy to use – physical buttons FTW!
