Things Your Grandmother Should Have Taught You

Toast:

After you’ve taken the slices from the toaster, balance them on their ends with the top edges touching for a li’l while to avoid the awkward condensation that builds up under the toast.

Pills:

Tilting your head back when you swallow pills can cause your trachea to open and oesophagus to close; tilt your head forward when you swallow instead.

Getting those digits:

When (when, not if; IT WILL HAPPEN) someone gives you their number, to check it’s legit (not that this will happen to u ur awesome xxxx) you can either a) repeat it back to them, but change one of the numbers—if they correct it they’re genuine, or b) text ‘em there and then with your name. If it vibrates, it’s legit, which is advice you should always take into account. This way, they have your number as well, so you’re avoiding the awkwardness of only one person having the other’s number.
