You're perfectly rational, right?

You always make good decisions, you're fair and thoughtful, and would never let something interfere with your logical demeanor.

The bad news: you're kidding yourself.

The good news: you can do something to improve your decision-making.

A few weeks ago, a friend suggested that I've been "hiding" for years.

Not hibernating, which implies a conscious decision to withdraw or be in seclusion.

My New Year's holiday was spent with my husband, daughters, and some of my oldest and dearest friends; two of whom have known me most of my life. We went to high school together, and we were just saying that our 30th high school reunion was coming up this year. (Yikes....

Garanimals was a children's clothing line that essentially coo...
