This month's homework assignment from The Professor is "Things I Can't Live Without." I've chosen a trio of things that I wouldn't want to be without.
Thing 1: Boots
I like the way boots look, but more importantly, they're the only footwear that don't make my feet hurt. My current collection consists of 4 pairs New Rocks, 2 pairs Dr. Martens, and 1 pair labeled "Zodiac" that are so old, I can't recall where I bought them.
Thing 2: Cinnamon toothpaste
Virtually all toothpaste is mint - spearmint, cool mint, fresh mint, lasting mint, ultra mega powerful mint; even the "unique" flavors are combined with mint - cinnamint, vanilla mint. Now, I like minty fresh breath as much as anyone. So why do I search high and low to find the lone option of cinnamon toothpaste? For the simple yet compelling reason that mint makes me sneeze. Sneezing with a mouth full of foamy toothpaste = BAD.
Thing 3: Ceramic flat iron
My hair is thick and coarse, with just enough wave to make it poufy and sloppy-looking. I hated my hair until I got a ceramic flat iron (straightening iron). It is a miracle device! It gets hot enough to smooth out even my horsetail hair without the damage of a metal iron. I would not wear my hair long without a ceramic flat iron. It turns this mess...
into hair I actually like.
