5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
OK, here's what I found in Augusten Burrough's "Possible Side Effects":
"But when I turned thirty, something was indeed left behind. Suddenly, inexplicably, a piece of me went missing. The very piece responsible for breaking up with a guy if he turned out to be a freak. Literally overnight, I went from somebody who was a pretty good judge of character- somebody who was able to go on a date or two, and if I didn't feel the chemistry, kindly back out- to being a sucker, unable to think and act for myself."
