why your morning routine matters by fiorella atoche

why your morning routine matters

the vero exit

I’m a fan of the Irish exit. Grammarly tells me this term is outdated, so I’ll rename it as the vero exit. It’s my preferred method of exiting most locations and events, particularly parties and gatherings. The vero exit is leaving without saying goodbye. It’s really not that necessary to say goodbye.

And yes, this includes everyone of every skin color under the sun (haha, see what I did there?).
