Why don’t washing machines dry clothes? How did we get so many lids? And other important thoughts

Why can’t a clothes washer and a dryer be combined into the same device? Dishwashers clean and dry the dishes. Why can’t we do this with clothes, too?

While working from home recently, I’ve had extra time to focus on important questions and thoughts such as these, so I thought I should share a few of them here with you today. You are welcome.

A few thoughts on the current state of life in a completely different world

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.

Top 5 Items Similar to Football Players Wearing Short Sleeve Shirts in Very Cold Weather

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.

It’s amazing to see how one action can have so many extra positive benefits

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.

Where are all of our spoons? What am I eating? And even more of today’s greatest mysteries!

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!”

Congress needs to act to eliminate scented trash bags!

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!”
