So, is it an entrance? Or is it not? Only you can decide.

Cheers to a reader in Philadelphia for sharing this metaphysical challenge with us!

Spending 14 hours on a bus en route to a conference this weekend, I’m learning a bit about human behavior. What a microcosm of creature comforts — or, perhaps, discomforts! For starters, some seem partial to particular (and sometimes quirky) sleeping positions.

I swear some people could fall asleep on a stop sign, if need be.

Do you have a quirky sleep routine?

Do nothing to your appendix
