This Week in Share the Grind

Don’t look now, but we’re nearly halfway through the year. Fortunately we have this bumper crop of #sharethegrind submissions to get you moving on a Monday. Before you begin, however, do you have your coffee? What about your old-school hip-hop? Here, borrow some of ours:

Dani Scott is having a tantrum. It’s not what you think it is:
