More Stuff I Don't Understand: Boring Edition

Other than the fact that I am in a bit of a writing funk and am a bit loopy from sinus medication, I really have no other excuse for this pitiful post.

Except that I am, in fact, very strange.

But most of you have figured that out by now.

Here are a few world-changing, life-enriching issues that have kept me up at night. (Not really. I blame blogging and HGTV for that.)

1. Why is it that my my make-up bottle promises to reverse the years and turn back time, but it always seems to take me back to when I was in high school or last month when a hormonal surge caused my face to become a photo-op for Proactiv Solution?

2. Why hasn't the school playground run out of sand? It seems that all of it has ended up in my car. How does the sand spontaneously replenish beneath the swings but will no one will spontaneously vacuum it out of the backseat of my car?

3. Why must children automatically turn their shoes upside down after taking them off? Is it like the "bread will always fall butter side down" theory? Does gravity make a Nike shoe tip instantly and spill sand and small pebbles into my car or my living room floor?

4. Why is it that my cat will spend all of her waking hours grooming herself but she will not even attempt to cover the awful prize she has left in her litter box?

5. Why must the Brady family fight the DiMera family all on their own? Hasn't the Salem Police Department ever heard of the FBI?

I'm just sayin.'

Those are all good questions -- especially that last one!! ;) Life would just be too easy if it all made perfect sense, I guess.

Good grief ... are those two families still at it? I would have to think that by now it's the great great great great grandchildren by now.

I was prepared to say, "Things that make you go hmmm...." and then I came to the last question.

To which I can only say, "AMEN! Preach the word, sister!"

We could probably come up with a whole post of "Days" ponder-ables, now that I think about it. For example, why does John feel the need to keep that eyebrow up?

Umm, it is down to the grandchildren now! Yes, it's sad to say that I watch this show - but it's ingrained in my blood it seems.

Hey, we all need to suspend reality once in a while. And believing that Sami Brady can end the vendetta by marrying EJ is just one example of that!

And while we are on the topic, if my family members had been kidnapped, I don't think I'd be sitting around the pub reading letters and laughing. I'm just saying.

I've wondered a few of those myself.

Great questions. I have to say I was flipping channels and came across Days Of Our Lives which I haven't watched since high school (which was, let's just say, a while ago, or more accurately-Marlena as the devil ago). I swear I could have started watching again without missing much.

I did notice Patch was back.
My daughter was in the room and said, "Why is there a pirate on this show? Is he going to say Argh?"

I just need to know how many times they are going to hospitalize Sami before she has those babies! And really... all these people getting injured/stabbed/ can only cheat death so many times!!!!

I'm just sayin!
