... to pretend to like green tea even though it kind of tastes like sticks.

... to say, "That was bullshit/racist/mean/rude" and not worry about hurting someone's feelings.

... to ignore your cell phone. (All that shit will still be there in an hour.)

... to Google 401k and Periscope and "caucus" in one afternoon.

... to not smile. 

... to cancel the meeting. #timesuck

... to have fun without drinking, complaining, drugs, gossiping, or doing anything else that you're "supposed" to do to let loose.

... to eat seconds if you're still hungry.

... to forgive your worst self.

... to ask for a hug that last longer than one second.
