Thirteen Things I Wonder About
Just in case you ever doubted that I am insane....this is a peek into my strange little brain!
1. If you don't have any family nearby, how do you get to use your "family sick leave"? Can I consider my dog family? Or my good friends? This term seems to be prejudiced to single people, orphans or those of a more independent nature.
2. How do people with very long fingernails or hair down to their knees keep themselves....er, clean down there? Won't those things get in the way during certain....natural activities?
3. What is so damn difficult about being a newscaster? Don't they just read a teleprompter? Geez, anyone can do that.
4. Is there really a reference to Superman in every Seinfeld episode?
5. If your boss asks you to proof-read something, and you find a lot of spelling/grammatical errors, is it a good idea to bleed all over their work? Or not?
6. Here in SC, ambulances are run by private companies. They are not necessarily associated with any particular hospital or area. This is very puzzling to me. If they are taking you to the hospital, why doesn't the hospital run the ambulance company?
7. Does Head-On really work?
8. Do dogs like dog food? Or do they just eat it to prevent starvation? Because I know very few dogs that get excited about kibbles, if you are holding a sandwich. I imagine dog food doesn't taste very good, even to dogs. Otherwise, they wouldn't get so excited about my ham and cheese.
9. What is it like to be a trucker? How do you pay your bills? Do they get bored? How do they stay fit? Don't they get sick of listening to music or talk radio eventually? How do they do their laundry? I could go on and on....I wish someone would make a documentary about this. It would be very educational.
10. I saw this TV show about a rescue dog. She could smell a human that was trapped under 5 feet of snow. That's one heck of a nose. My question is, in normal, everyday living, we must just REEK and STINK to dogs, right? Five feet of smelling power indicates one hell of a sensitive nose. Do dogs stink, or do we?
11. Think about a night-time skyline of a city. Some of the lights in the skyscrapers are on, but not all. The lights sometimes change from day to day. Did all those people forget to turn off the lights in their offices? Are they on timers? Are some lights designed to stay on forever? Does it indicate that the cleaning crew is on that floor? Why those lights and not others? Wouldn't it save a bunch of energy if they turned all of them off? (There are red lights that blink on the top of the building, so no planes would hit it or anything.)
12. Who does buy what those telemarkers are selling? I mean, someone's buying the stuff, otherwise they would stop calling everyone.
13. Ever see that episode of Sex and the City where Berger mentions how he collects found playing cards? I guess all around Manhattan, people leave random playing cards laying around??? His goal was to eventually collect an entire set of 52 cards. Does this "game" actually exist? Do people leave cards around in Manhattan? Or was it just something he did for fun? I can't tell from the episode if the cards are left intentionally or not.
There you have it. The things I wonder when I'm driving, brushing my teeth, on hold, waiting for the light to change, etc. Just a little insight into how crazy I am.
Preview for tomorrow's post: I put in an offer on a house!!! If all goes well, I will be living in my own home soon after Halloween!!!!!
