It turns out that sitting in a rental car beside the speaker at a drive-through restaurant is a bad time to try to figure out where on the door you can find the switch that rolls down the window.
It was entirely unremarkable. As a newsman, that is usually the worst possible condition. Events that are really good or really bad tend to be far more noteworthy. But when Dawit took the field for his first tee ball game, it was entirely unremarkable.
Great Clips, which is a hair salon chain so successful that it does surveys when it’s not cutting people’s hair, has put together a list of the greatest and worst hairstyles of all time.
