You learn something new every day, whether or not you realize it right away. There are no exceptions to this rule.

Today I learned the difference between bowler hats, pork pie hats and fedoras. Before today, they were all just fedoras to me. It never occurred to me that all three of these different hat styles had different names.

I also learned that Roseanne is Jewish, and that gummy shot glasses exist.

It doesn't have to be anything life-changing or significant or anything, just something that you learned. So AG, I ask you now, what did you learn today?

I learned that during long tests where they make you use #2 pencils, I begin to devour the wood of the pencil. Light yellow Ticonderoga pencils are the best for gnawing on. The paint doesn't flake into your mouth.

Don't do that, by the way.

It's very hard to stick a straw down a cat's throat. But the benefit of doing that is that you can blow into the straw and inflate the lungs if you've got the ribs away. Very exciting.

I learned that organic food is not a scam, there's actually a difference.
I bought some organic bananas because the regular ones were already yellow.
To my surprise, they lasted an entire week instead of turning brown in 2 days like the cheap ones.

I also bought some carrots and I noticed a difference in the taste. They actually tasted slightly sweeter than the normal ones who always have a bitter aftertaste .

I learned that someone who I hoped I never saw again, someone I haven't talked to since he was held back in 5th grade, is joining marching band next year. Even worse he's a trumpet which is my section.

I'm going to give him such a hard time.

One of the students at the local catholic school set the toilets on fire. No real harm done, except to the people who were taking their As level exams at the time had to sit and wait for eight minutes until the alarm turned off before they were allowed to resume.

I learned that I got a pass+ in that three section test. It's great I passed but I want to know what the + means.

I learned my grandfather worked as a dairy manager for much of his working life. At his funeral. I never asked what he used to do. I kind of wish I had now.
