Raw Oysters Taste a Lot Better Than They Look

I just returned from vacation after spending all last week in Charleston, South Carolina. My wife and I go there every year and one thing we always try and do is try something new.

I have always tried to live life with a positive outlook. But I'm not going to lie - right now, I am having a very hard time doing that. It's like I just can't find the awesomeness inside me any more. I am questioning my choices and my worth almost daily.

My 19-year-old son and 18-year-old daughter love to drink Monster and I have a friend who swears by his daily 5-Hour Energy drink. According to a new survey of U.S. hospitals, the number of trips to the emergency room that are tied to energy drink consumption has doubled over the last four years. Great, first no large sodas in New York City and now this - is there no end to the debauchery?
