Miscellaneous Monday!

  1.  I asked my Mommy to tell me a story today and she goes like this, “Once upon a time, there was a gourd … “
  2. Did you know that in Japan, once a woman has children she is referred to as “Mother” (or Mom) by everyone in the family including the husband?
  3. Prior to the invention of modern day plumbing, leftover corncobs were used as toilet paper by Americans (to wipe their cornholios? :).
  4. In many countries, such as parts of Asia, North Africa, and the Middle East—it’s disrespectful to offer your left hand in a handshake.
  5. Before doing something that requires increased confidence, standing in a high power position (think Wonder Woman) for 2 minutes actually effects how another person perceives you during the something! Just ask Amy Cuddy!
