Things You Didn't Need Permission to Do in 2007

Things You Didn't Need Permission to Do in 2007

We all have things we should do and other things we just wanna do, and sometimes, we need a little reminder that we're allowed to do things our own way! That's one reason I love the You Don't Need Permission To . . . feature on DearSugar, where every day we examine a tiny indulgence, or an act of irresponsibility, or a rule you should be allowed to break! So as part of our best of 2007 coverage, here are some of the things you didn't need permission to do this year.

Ugh I missed this the first time around, but I HATE HATE HATE when people buy a dessert and claim it is homemade. There is NOTHING WRONG with not being able to bake, but just suck it up and admit that it is homemade -- if people love it, they'll be thrilled to know where they can pick one up, too. But flat out lying takes away from all the hard work that people who did make their own dessert spent baking away -- it takes me 4-5 hours to bake a pie from scratch with my own dough and doing a real lattice pie top crust, and I would be pissed if someone stopped at the grocery store for 30 seconds, bought one, and tried to pass it off like they put in as much effort as I did.

These are good, but you also don't need permission to hate waking up early every day, and wake up at 2 in the afternoon on your only day off :)
