I woke up at precisely 6:00 a.m. with a wicked cramp in my right calf. There was a period when I was a kid when I would get cramps in my legs at night, and I'm quite sure that my mother's treatment involved walking on a cold floor, and something to do with milk. But here's the thing: I have absolutely no idea whether her advice was "Drink a glass of milk!" or "Whatever you do, don't drink milk!" Does this happen to you? Same thing with nosebleeds: I know I'm supposed to do something with my head, but is it tilt it back, or put it between my knees? Sometimes I feel entirely useless at being an adult.
All eyes on the typhoon! It's a-comin'... (I'm going to regret this eagerness, aren't I?)
