Things that make one go HMM....think about it

Updated on April 24, 2011

things that make one go Hmm..think about it

Its almost 5 am here and I am finally finishing off a 6 week hiatus from writing as my muse took a brief vacation on me again. During that time I did a bit of pondering and realised that there are manythings that make me go Hmmm...

Why in the english language , for example, is throught pronounced like thrue yet bough is bow (as in take a bow) and then there bow itself same word but 2 different pronunciations with 3 different meanings.Hmmmmm....Other confusing words are to two and too

Anoither thing makes me go hmmm is if you combine all the colors in a box of crayons except the black on you get either black or a close enough shade to black .yet all the colors in nature combine to make the color white or so they say, and black is the absence of all color.Hmmmmm....Are black or white even real colors ???

Why does it always seem to rain right after you either freshly wash and wax your vehicle or cut the grass from the last rainfall?Hmmmm... For that matter why does it seem after raking all the leaves up in a pile 3 more piles worth seem to suddenly fall from the trees.Hmmmmm....

I don't know many who don't like a sunset or sunrise but truthfully how often, unless you work all night or are a nightowl like me occassionally , actually see a sunrise on a regular basis? why is the sunrise always so damn early in the morning? Hmmmmm...

I know many of thse may seem childish to look at but it does make you stop and think about this weird and amazingly wonderful world we all live in . Perhaps we all need to access or inner child stop the hustle and bustle of everyday stress and think about some thing off the wall that makes us all go HMMMM.....
