If your wife leaves you, you lose your job, or your computer crashes with your career-hinging afternoon presentation aboard, do the following: Drive out to MacBeath Hardwood. Walk past the sales area, across the loading yard, and into the old warehouse that stores the teak, bocote, rosewood, ebony, zebrawood, mahogany, and other exotics, and breathe as much air out of your lungs as you can. Now breathe in, gently, for 24 seconds. The indescribably beautiful smell of tons of cut hardwood will cure what ails you. We promise.
