The How I Learned Series features writers, storytellers, comedians, and other raconteurs holding forth on a different theme. It all happens every last Wednesday of the month, and sometimes more than that, which basically means you will have the best night of your life on those nights, repeatedly.



WHEN YOU GROW UP YOUR HEART DIES

For those of you who have been to How I Learned before, you know how much I enjoy John Hughes movies. (Well, really only nine movies out of all of them, but I love those nine so much that it's like enough theoretical love to go around.)

BuzzFeed -- you know that site that does all the quizzes that get posted all over Facebook -- just posted a "Which John Hughes Classic Are You?" quiz. Now, the senior editor of BuzzFeed, Louis Peitzman, was a featured performer at the last How I Learned and I was campaigning for a "Which How I Learned Theme Are You" quiz. I think this is as close as it's gonna get.

Oh, of course I did the quiz. Naturally, I got the 'The Breakfast Club.' I am Allison Reynolds. I've been saying that for years.
