There are a lot of great sensations, though. One of my favorites is the feeling of the short fur just under my cat's chin, which she loves to have scratched. Her fur is super soft, and it brings me joy to scratch her chin because she so obviously loves the interaction too.

When that part of the song comes on that gives you a tingle. It starts at the base of your neck and works its way out through your entire body.

Raise your hands--who had an emo phase in the 2000s? I know I did, as did a lot of people around me. All of us heard “It's just a phase" from our parents at some point, but when you're a kid, life as we know it seems so permanent.

Believe it or not, Canadians don't live in igloos or freeze to death all year round. If you go to Germany, it's highly unlikely that every German you meet will be cold and uninviting. Hop over to the United Kingdom and you're not going to run into tons of people with terrible teeth and bad hygeine.
