456. Driving Rule

No music for your first year of driving.

370. Punctuate for Intended Meaning

There are right and wrong ways to punctuate your writing.

Once you master those rules, move to the next level. Phrase and punctuate so readers grasp your intended meaning. This is the beginning of developing your personal writing style.

251. Clothing Rules

Have a few rules for how you dress.

Some of mine are: No woven belts, only leather; No V-neck shirts of any kind; Learn how to layer; Always wear a t-shirt; Never wear a tank top undershirt (horrifically called a wife-beater).

243. Coffee Rules

Don’t start too early in life, but enjoy each cup.

Use a burr grinder to grind the beans right before making it.

Experiment with methods – french press, gravity filter, vacuum, espresso machine – but avoid the all-too-common coffee maker. They all take about the same time to make.

Say it right. There’s no x in espresso.

Coffee stains. Clean your cup right away.
