What a Great Idea! Well-Behaved Children Discount!
Finally, it may pay for parents to raise well-behaved children - restaurant discounts! After witnessing a large family's five children quietly and contentedly coloring in coloring books while the adults drank and chatted at his wine bar, Italian restaurateur Antonio Ferrari decided a new policy was in order. One of the last lines on the family's check read "Sconto Bimbi Educati," or "Educated Children Discount." In a Facebook post, Ferrari marvels that "it's just so unusual" to see such well-behaved children in a restaurant. He describes them as having "much composure." The family was apparently so pleased with their 5% discount - nearly $14 - they reciprocated by leaving a $30 tip.

HOW GROSS IS YOUR LOOFAH
Women's Health) If you're like the 60 percent of Whisper respondents who said they don't toss theirs until it's falling apart. Consider its stages of stankiness:
After One Month
With every use, you've transferred bacteria from your skin to the loofah, where it gets trapped in the nooks and crannies, says dermatologist Dendy Engelman, M.D. By now, you're just washing up with bugs, which could cause folliculitis, an infection of the hair follicles on the skin.
After 3 Months
There isn't just bacteria in there, but likely allergy-provoking mold as well, fostered by the humid environment in your shower.
Beyond 4 Months
Lady, get rid of it. If the reasons listed aren't enough to motivate you to get a new loofah, maybe the smell which could rival a pro football locker room will. Not even a fragrant shower get can mask this odor.
