read this post in the bathtub—on your laptop (but be sure it’s plugged in and immersed in your bath water)*

The recent warning from the American College of Emergency Physicians has me ticked. Must common sense always be optional? Can’t our coffee and our Pop Tarts be piping hot after they are prepared without our being warned in advance? Can’t I be counted on to know that my bag of nuts contains nuts? Shouldn’t I take a sleeping pill because it causes drowsiness?

Warning: If you are walking into oncoming traffic because you are engrossed in reading or writing a text message, you don’t deserve advance warning. You deserve a Darwin Award.

*But wait until you get home from that blindfolded bike ride.
