I’m not a fan of addiction, despite sharing some fondness for the oft-heard mantra that anything worth doing is worth overdoing. If you need something, you aren’t as free as you might be.
That said, I’ve become a happy slave to an idiotic pastime.
If you’re in the mood to laugh, groan, and/or pick up some serious street cred, do this:
1. Go to a search engine
2. Type in variations of “How to be cool,” “How to be suave,” “How to be an alpha male (or female),” “How to be irresistible,” “How to flirt,” and then ONLY READ THE WIKIHOW articles, which are usually at the top of the results list.
This has come about largely because of all of the peacockin’ men who come into the library. The guys who come up swaggering as if they are being paid a fortune simply to exist are usually the ones who whisper, “Hey yo, where the books about being cool at?”
I can’t get enough. It’s been a while since I’ve laughed this hard. Wikihow. Do it.
