10 things I've learned in 5 years

Every five years since I was 25, I have made a list of 10 things I've learned in the previous five years. That time has come around again. So here we go.

1. Having a gravestone somewhere with your name on it feels like reading the last chapter of the book first.

2. Belize mud will not come out of your socks, no matter how many times you wash them.

3. It's not that hard to be naked in public if there are a few hundred people around you doing the same. The hard part is picking up your robe again without bumping into someone else.

4. Just by saying "Let me know if there's anything I can do," you've done something.

5. Chile Pepper travels well.

6. You can learn to smile again.

7. It's never too late to read "To Kill A Mockingbird" for the first time.

8. Conan O'Brien is a tall SOB.

9. I will never be able to read "Winnie the Pooh" without a tear.

10. Leave with a smile.
