If you're ever in a situation where you feel a sneeze coming on, and you'd really rather not, just say "watermelon" (out loud... mumbled quietly to yourself... or even just mouth the words without saying anything at all) and the problem is solved. No sneeze.

My son taught me this (kids know the coolest things) and I've tried it about 3 times so far, with success each time. It came in handy just the other day when I was in a training meeting for work. I quietly mumbled watermelon...

Every time I bite into an apple my dog comes running. (They have good ears.) Just one crunchy bite and there he is, looking up at me, expectant.

So I bite off a piece for him, then I take a bite myself. And it goes on like that till the apple's all gone, and in the end I really only get 1/2 an apple...

Do you ever eat too many peppermint patties?

They're my favorite treat. Got hooked because they're only 1 gram of fat per patty. Cool and minty. Who can resist? Figured it was a good way to have a treat and not go overboard.

But some days, I not only go overboard, I'm happily treading water in a sea of patties. 8, 9, 10 of them at least... Might as well of thrown caution to the wind and dived into that bowl of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream I was craving. (small...
