🙃 6 letters OR digits = over 2 billion possible individual zip codes. [26 possible letters and 10 possible digits (0-9) for each of 6 slots= 36*36*36*36*36*36=2,176,782,336 (1.5 billion if you take out 0s or 1s because they resemble certain letters or if you take out all letter Os or Is)

poinsettias are mildly toxic to pets, so it's best to keep them out of reach to err on the side of caution 😉

sorry I'm not on Twitter, so I'll answer here and maybe you'll see it... It's my understanding that in olden times gays would be burned alive, persecuted, thrown onto a fire, same as a bundle of sticks (aka, "a faggot"). Is it offensive to equate the value of someone's life to a bundle of sticks meant for burning? probably, yes. Thanks for another great interview, I love David Sedaris, and am enjoying the podcast.

I hope you comforted your daughter after the chicken funeral by taking her out to dinner. I'm thinking KFC.
