The coronavirus has completely changed life as we know it.
While I don’t want to downplay the seriousness of the situation, I did want to offer a few thoughts on some of the odd changes I have noticed:
- I can’t stop singing Happy Birthday to myself every time I wash my hands. I don’t even realize I am doing it now, and when I am done I tell myself “Happy Birthday!”
- Can you imagine how weird it will be to sing Happy Birthday at birthday parties from now on? We’ll all feel like we have to wash our hands as soon as we start singing.

I hate it when football players wear short sleeve shirts in extremely cold weather.
I understand that they are trying to look tough and show that the weather does not bother them, but it would make more sense to wear a long sleeve shirt and look tough and show that they are smart.
Also, if they do this in cold weather, why don’t those same players wear long sleeve shirts in hot weather and try to prove that the hot weather doesn’t bother them? It makes no sense if you think about it.
I have often wondered how this mentality would translate to other aspects of life, so with that in mind our judges put together this list of Top 5 Items Similar to Football Players Wearing Short Sleeve Shirts in Very Cold Weather.

This summer, I decided to shorten and thin out the hedges in the backyard.
I took on this challenge because I wanted to see if it would make the yard look larger and because I have been at war with the hedges for the past six years.
Sure, the hedges and I are often friendly to each other, but we both know what the other is thinking when we see each other.
“What an ugly eyesore for the yard,” the hedges often think about me.
“Is there a difference between hedges and bushes? Is it possible to have just one hedge? And why do I have to trim you so often?” I often think while looking at the tall green plants that are in a row in my yard.

Life is filled with many great mysteries.
Sometimes they can be found in the kitchen, the grocery store or even the study. For example, how can anyone afford to have a study these days?
What are people studying in these rooms? Is there some work I’m supposed to be doing? I’ll be honest, I didn’t study that much when I actually was in school, and I don’t think I would do a very good job of studying now if I had a room devoted to it.
In addition to studiously studying studies, I have also pondered several other puzzling questions over the last few weeks, and I thought I would share a few of them with you here: Continue reading “Where are all of our spoons? What am I eating? And even more of today’s greatest mysteries!”
While government leaders discuss impeachment, interest rates and energy policy, I still keep accidentally purchasing “scented” trash bags at the grocery store!
Something definitely needs to be done about this, and I hope that Congress, the United Nations or the Avengers can do something soon about this ill-smelling injustice. This fragrant fraud must be stopped before it stinks again!
Why were scented trash bags invented and distributed? Is this another example of a foreign country trying to disrupt our way of life? Elections are one thing, but when they mess with my trash can, that’s where I draw the line! Continue reading “Congress needs to act to eliminate scented trash bags!”
I know a squirrel who has a pretty good story to tell his or her friends.
One night this summer, I looked out onto the back steps and noticed that the cat was staring at something near the pear tree.
I had been working out in the yard for much of the day, so I was hoping that the cat was just admiring my hard work. Continue reading “You never know what you’ll see in the backyard”
A few months ago, I proclaimed on here that I had several terrific new ideas for the blog that would be fun and exciting.
After that, I wrote a few posts and then didn’t write anything for more than two months. As it turns out, my great idea was to just have a blank blog.
I call it “virtual blogging.”
The good news is that I had very few typos over the last few months. The bad news is that I likely lost most of my readers, and I missed the fun of writing these posts. Continue reading “What I did on my summer vacation from blogging”
