But every now and again, when I feel adventurous, I’ll try something off the specials list. Or shop at a new store. Or twist myself into a pretzel because, hey, I haven’t done that before. And you know what happens? My mind is blown and I’m left wondering why I hadn’t had these new experiences earlier.
