7, 14, 22, 28, 42, and 50?

A question by mitchellthespookman

7: What do you drink with dinner?
Water or tea. Usually tea.

14: When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper?
If a thank you note counts, today. An actual letter I wrote in late June or early July to Mary.

22: Do you sing in the shower?
Just a bit.

28: What do you wear to bed?
Let me preface this by saying I am the most anti-sweatpants/yoga pants person possibly in existence; I am much more comfortable in a fitted, formal dress than lounging clothes.
Despite this, I wear to bed t-shirts (mostly “unisex” tees or old concert tees) and cotton or flannel pajama pants. That is my go-to bed wear. That, or a matching pajama set in flannel or cotton (button-down top with matching pants, classic/menswear style).
I have tried sleeping in my underwear and nearly nude, but I have found it to be incredibly uncomfortable. Even pajama shorts aren’t as comfortable as pants and a tee/pajama set, summer or winter.

42: Which friend would you go to in an emergency?
Steph, Chris, Sarah, Jay, or Mitchell. In that order.

50: Who is the most intelligent person you know?
Oh my gosh, this is a difficult question as I generally only try and hang around with intelligent people.
Either one if the teachers at my art intensive (Al), my friend Devon, Alec (not Mitchell’s brother Alec, a different one), Yimeng, or Mitchell.
Disclaimer: most people I know are incredibly intelligent beings and all make the list.

As in right now.
You will live a life in three hours.



Marlboro, 1944

Philip Morris launched the Marlboro brand in 1924 as a woman’s cigarette, based on the slogan “Mild As May”. In the 1920s, advertising for the cigarette was primarily based around how ladylike the filter cigarette was, in an attempt to appeal to the mass market. To this end, the filter had a printed red band around it to hide lipstick stains, calling it “Beauty Tips to Keep the Paper from Your Lips”.

After scientists published a major study linking smoking to lung cancer in the 1950s, Philip Morris repositioned Marlboro as a men’s cigarette in order to fit a market niche of men who were concerned about lung cancer. At the time, filtered cigarettes were considered safer than unfiltered cigarettes, but had been until that time only marketed to women. Men at the time indicated that while they would consider switching to a filtered cigarette, they were concerned about being seen smoking a cigarette marketed to women.
