How to be Smarter: Don't store tomatoes in the fridge unless they are already cut up--ruins their flavor.
How to be Prettier: Summer dress!
How to be (less) Awkward: On a date, whether with a friend or with a boy, don't use up all your best stories of the day too fast. Meter them out throughout the night. And never tell your good stories while you are waiting for a table, because not only will the listener be distracted and the volume level will be loud, but by the time you actually get seated, you run the risk of being out of your interesting/cool/funny daily tales.
