"My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to 99 cents a can. That's almost $7.00 in dog money" -- Joe Weinstein

How to be Smarter: Don't confuse authentic food with trendy food. If the place is actually serving authenic food, the prices will not be that expensive. If the place is serving atmosphere and coolness factor, it will most likely be more expensive. How to be Prettier: No mixing more than one animal print at a time.

How to be (less) Awkward: As we get older, we make decisions that some people in our life might not think are right. Tell the people that will be happiest for you first, even if they are not necessarily the people you are closest to. Instead of making a big annoucement to your entire career-centered family when you decide to quit your lawyer job and move to Paris to hike the streets of high fashion for a year, tell the cashier lady at the deli you always chit chat with. Once you start getting positive reactions from others, you will have more confidence to tell the people closest to you who may be hesitant of your new plans.
