An old boyfriend once presented the theory that there are certain defining likes and dislikes that can predetermine the functionability of relationships. Simply put - people who like olives always end up with people who don't. The same goes for mint chocolate chip ice cream, for some reason. I believe this might also be true of onions on salad; that way, the people who don't like them can happily give them to the people who do. It just works out. I can't explain the mint chocolate chip ice cream thing, but in my experience, it's completely true. I think it's also possible to add something about alarm clocks to this list. Those who need them and those who don't, or those who like them and those who don't. I, for example will set four alarms when I know I need to wake up for something important. I might set more of them if my cell phone would allow me to have more than three alarms in addition to my regular alarm clock. My dear husband is generally able to remember to set the one, but that rarely matters because he normally doesn't hear it going off for 15 minutes anyway. Conveniently, he married me, and I'm alarm clock-obsessed, so he doesn't usually have to worry about remembering his alarm. People who are obsessed with alarm clocks end up with people who can't seem to hear them. Discuss.

Lullabies aren't just for kids; it's great to be sung to sleep at any age. Here's my current favorite:
