My appointment was at 9 a.m. for the dreaded first-ever mammogram. I arrived a little early, filled out the paperwork, had my boobs squished in the most awkward of manners, got dressed, was out the door and walking to my car at 8:57 a.m. Unheard of in the medical world. Lickety-split-no-shit. 600 8th St. S. Suite A. St. Pete. 727-954-6519. —AB

Who would’ve known that we’d spend our mid-30s (and beyond) collecting buttons and pins for our lapels and guitar straps? Thanks to the comic book-inspired selection at Tampa’s Bronze Age Buttons and veteran local comics artist/musician Josh Sullivan’s wide variety of enamel pins both cute and snide, getting older (and throwing around our disposable income) never felt — or looked — so cool. —Ray Roa/Scott Harrell
