What's Up With That?? Pondering Life's Greatest Mysteries
I Was Just Wondering....
I don't know about you, but I often find my self daydreaming, spacing out, or just randomly thinking about whatever happens to pop into my brain.
This wandering brain of mine seems to allow ample time to ponder some of life’s greatest mysteries.
Ok, maybe I'm exaggerating about the "greatest" and "mysteries" part.
But anyway, here are some extremely random questions for your consideration.
Why is it that…
In the parking lot….even if you park at the very back, with no cars around, invariably when you return to your car, somebody is parked right next to you?
Or, when getting in or out of your car, the driver of the vehicle parked right next to you is also entering or exiting, (so you have to wait until they close their door) and you are
the only two people doing so in the whole lot ? I actually call that 'The Rule of the Parking Lot.'
At the grocery store… there is always somebody standing exactly in front of the one thing you want on the shelf.
And when you go to check-out, your line is the slowest by far …. So you switch to a lane that's moving much faster, but then suddenly, your old line starts moving and your new line is going nowhere!
Instead of replacing the roll of toilet paper, how come the last person that used the bathroom before you leaves about one-half square on the roll, making it look like there is some left, but not anywhere near enough to do you any good. Of course, you don’t realize that until it’s too late, and then you are sitting there on the toilet calling out for help.i
And why is it that....
In school, a grade of “A”,”B”, “C”, or “D” doesn’t stand for a word, but “F” stands for “Fail”?
If your doggie pees on the floor, you will discover this
by stepping in the puddle, in the dark, while barefoot. Ewww...
And why is it that the settings on a desk fan are off, followed by high,
med, and low? Shouldn’t it be off, then low, medium, and high? I don't get that.
Ever noticed that the less hair a man grows on his head, the more he gets on
his back?? Perhaps it slides down.
What’s up with the one shoe, just one, on the side of the road? Where is the other shoe? How did someone lose their shoe while traveling down the highway? It's weird.
Some of the most common put-downs for a man are actually
dissing his mother? (Bastard, son of a
bitch, among others.) That's just not right.
How come giving yourself a foot massage doesn’t feel anywhere near as good as when someone else does it?
When you breathe into your hands to check if you have bad breath, are you really smelling your breath, or just your hands?
Why is it that your grandmother was so much cooler than your mother? Was grandma the un-cool one when she was only a mom? Is there some kind of secret trade-off that happens?
Can you tell sour cream has gone bad by smelling it?
Remember that 70's show "Quincy" ? What was that guy's last name?
Why is it that the funnier a story seems, the dumber it becomes when you try to re-tell it?
How come your cat's favorite guest is the one person who doesn't like cats?
Why do we open our mouths when we put on mascara?
