Some days, I sit around pondering the many unanswered questions of my universe. Unfortunately, I never seem to find any answers to them. Still, I thought I should share some of them with all of you.
Why do my dogs only want to chew on the bone that one of the other dogs has in her mouth? Yet, once she gets it, she no longer cares about it.
Why do my children forget about most of their toys, but then say that some previously ignored item is their “favorite” as soon as I try to give it to charity?
Why do my kids talk about their “favorite” foods but then say they don’t like them when I actually serve them?
How come red is the color of love, but when we’re angry we say we “see red”?
Why do “going green” being “green with envy” and being so sick that you “look green” have absolutely nothing in common?
How come if you drink too much you aren’t a “drinkoholic”?
Why do I get a headache, a backache or a stomachache, but if I hurt my arm, I can only say that my arm hurts?
Why is a paper shredder called a shredder but a cheese shredder is called a grater?
Why is it good to have a warm heart but bad to have a hot temper? And how can a hot temper be just as bad as a cold personality?
Why does rush hour last more than 60 minutes?
Why are peanuts not really nuts?
Why are tomatoes put in a vegetable salad when they’re really a fruit?
Why do we talk “on” a phone but sit “in” a chair?
Why is it good for a company to be “in the black” but bad to be in a black mood?
What do my dogs REALLY do when I’m not at home?
Do my fish know that they’re my pets?
Why don’t hamburgers contain ham, but chicken patties do contain chicken?
Why are clouds white but on a cloudy day the sky is grey?
Why is having a cold not the same thing as being cold?
How come parents are happy when you “hit the books” but if you walked up to a library shelf and “hit a book” you’d be in trouble?
Why do some people hate chocolate?
Where can I find some chocolate right now?
Am I really so bored that I had all this time to come up with these crazy questions??
