    How do you have a quiz on staircases at Cornell and not one of them is McGraw tower?!

      “gotcha!” — they expected you to expect McGraw tower 🙂

      When I first began wearing makeup, I expected my mother to comment on my eyebrows, so I didn’t put anything on them — and sure enough, Mom’s first comment was that I had put too much on my eyebrows 🙂
