Things I Don’t Understand - Don't Get Me Started
I have always known that my mind is filled with such things as every lyric to Funny Girl as opposed to the proper interest rate for stocks and bonds or how to plan my retirement (which I can’t even contemplate having one so I guess I’m not ever going to retire). My mind is constantly filled with information that is of no use to anyone really. And even my references that I use in conversation people sometimes have to think about three or four times because they don’t remember the time when Bobby Brady took baked beans in a flashlight to the Indian boy in the Grand Canyon (which I credit as being the original Brokeback Mountain but perhaps that’s just me). At any given point on any given day there is so much I don’t understand that it boggles my mind. So today I thought I’d make a list of things that are beyond my comprehension. Things I don’t understand – Don’t Get Me Started!
I don’t understand how you can be a “personality” (Jon Gosselin are you listening?) and yet have no personality.
I don’t understand how anyone can take anything that Rush Limbaugh says and think it’s more than an old white guy in a desperate attempt to garner attention rather than someone educated trying to educate or inform.
I don’t understand why teachers are paid so crappy and yet they’re the first ones who get blamed when kids are stupid. Seems to me the parents are the stupid ones for not taking an active part in nurturing and teaching their children, pawning it off on teachers. Just as stupid is our government for not sending better funding for the people shaping the generation to come so that it attracts a higher level of teacher but then again, maybe it’s just me.
I don’t understand how anyone could have thought The Blair Witch Project was “brilliant.”
I don’t understand anything about math. I can add the same numbers three times and come up with four different numbers…see?!?
I don’t understand how some people can be on Facebook all day and night every day and night.
I don’t understand people who have nothing to say but go on and on and on.
I don’t understand why I’m not famous.
I don’t understand why my body can’t look like those twenty year olds at the gym even though I’m twice their age, don’t work out as much as them and don’t have metabolism anymore.
I don’t understand how you can think that shirt goes with those pants but I guess, good for you.
I don’t understand how I can think I’m not a grudge holder yet I can remember every moment of why someone pissed me off and immediately get mad about it all over again (even years later) as if I’m Al Pacino doing Method Acting, using sense memory.
I don’t understand how people can say they “don’t have a problem with people being gay” yet they don’t understand my problem with not getting all the rights of straight people in the eyes of the law.
I could go on and on but then I’d be one of my own things that I don’t understand so I’ll stop my list there. I know you must have a bunch of stuff you don’t understand too so feel free to add to the list. Things I don’t understand – Don’t Get Me Started!
Visit the whole wacky world according to Scott @
- Some Like It Scott!
An acquired taste, like Tab cola, Some Like It Scott is one gay man's experiences with love, life and things that make him crazy, all done to a musical theatre soundtrack.
