    41 Little Observations About Life

    I told my wife on my birthday, "So I started writing 41 little thoughts and observations about life that I've learned so far."
     

    "I think I'm going to post them on Facebook because surely everyone wants to read them, right??"
     

    She replied, and I paraphrase,
