Things that make you go hmmm..

How come when you are in high school, you can't wait to get out, but once you are out in the real world and your 20th reunion is approaching you wonder what would have happened if things went differently and you could go back in time.. things that make you go hmmmmm

How come some women in my high school class gave birth to 3 or 4 children and look wonderful, I gave birth to 7 and look like my name should be Bessy and I should be in a field grazing.. Things that make you go hmmm.

How come a child or a dog can hear you open any package from three rooms away but if you call them from four feet away they don't hear you..things that make you go hmmm.

How come you walk in to walmart with a shopping list of five or six things and walk out of walmart with a cart full of stuff and justification that the prices were falling around you.. Things that make you go hmmmmm.

How come when your 11 year old has drama with her best friend you call your mother to swear that you don't EVER remember being like that for her to fall over in a fit of laughter that you are worried you will need to call 911 to revive her. Things that make you go hmmmmm

How come men get distinguished as they get older.. and women just get well old? Things that make you go hmmmm..

How come you can put 10 socks in the washer, put 10 socks in the dryer but in the end only get 7 socks back. What happens to those other 3 socks? Things that make you go hmmmm

How come on days you can sleep in the baby gets up at 7:30 but on days you have to get everyone dressed and out of the house, she sleeps in and doesnt want to wake up... Things that make you go hmmm.

How come someone in a distance classroom enviornment for college, can be given the SAME directions 8 times and still do the same thing wrong 9 times.. (side note. .one of chucks classmates keeps logging in and posting in the WRONG area.. he has been corrected by the teacher and other students.. its driving us batty lol). Things that make you go hmmm.

And finally....

How come if something is bad, and someone else smells it or tastes it and says "this is terrible.. try it" they think you are going to say "ok" and take a bite or a sniff. Things that make you go hmm...

Any others I missed? comment them on.

Hey Sweetie -
Love your blog today.

About those now you know where lint comes from LOL! You've got one hungry dryer there.

Hey - About those pretty girls....When looking at people I look at the soul not the outside - In this day and age...any woman can pay for a pretty outside...but a pretty inside takes more than money! When it comes to Beautiful insides you got it going on and on!! AND I think you are beautiful outside too!!! ... I'd rather have a friend that's pretty on the inside.
