Random questions pop into my head all the time. Just ask my closest friends; they will attest to that.
Often my online pals will ask me to formulate questions to get the conversation going if there seems to be a lull. I can somehow reach into my average size brain and come up with something to inquire about.
I would probably make a good game show host or welcome center employee. I have no problems asking a complete stranger something about himself/herself or just anything that I'm thinking about it.
Here are a few things that I am wondering about today.... feel free to jump in on the conversation!
- Why is it that younger children wake up early when you'd wish they'd sleep late BUT teenagers who can actually offer help around the house are the ones who are lazy and sleep in?
- Why do men have to nickname their private parts and offer catchy phrases as to the functions of those parts? (If you only knew the long list of lines my husband uses.....)
- Why do I start looking at available jobs in my area every time I get really annoyed with my child? After all, adults can be just as frustrating, (if not more so), than kids.
- Why can't I know someone like the character Phoebe Buffay from the former tv series Friends? I wish I had a hippie-quirky pal who sang songs like "Smelly Cat" and hung out in coffee shops all the time.
My muse - I love Phoebe!
Why are some folks obsessed about having a clean house and others (like me) don't really give it much thought unless guests come over?
How come the angle at which you stand can make you look ten pounds lighter or heavier in photos? Do you know how hard it is to remember to pose on the good side at the correct degree in order to look decent in spontaneous snapshots?
Why is it that I crave Mexican cuisine almost every week? I think if I were only allowed one food for the rest of my life, I'd probably choose nachos and salsa.
Why can't I find a deodorant that really lasts? Oh wait, I know why, nevermind. I live in Florida where it's 100 degrees and has 1,000% humidity for six months out of the year!!!
When Dial soap just isn't enough!
Why do movies you thought were cool fifteen years ago suddenly seem lame and full of horrible acting now? I recently watched Footloose again with Kevin Bacon and really, what was I thinking!? Same with Flashdance! I'll still watch them of course but now I laugh at them instead of want to be them.
Speaking of laughing, why do I often use the phrase, "That's hilarious!" but then I don't actually laugh before or after I say that? No sounds come out of my mouth. Weird. But a few of my friends do the same thing too so I'm not the only one.
Why did scientists have to declare Pluto as not being a planet of our solar system anymore? I mean if we needed to get rid of one, why not remove "Uranus" from the bunch? ;-)
What are you wondering about today? Which one of my above, random questions do you most identify with or like the best?
