Why is there a common expression, working like a dog and why do I use it? My dogs and most other dogs I've ever known are not bringing home paychecks or lifting a paw to help out around the house. Now loafing like a dog? That I could buy.

Why won't my 11 year old boy wear some sort of jacket, sweatshirt or hoodie to school in the mornings when it is 40 something degrees outside? Yeah, it's supposed to warm up to the upper 70s this afternoon but it's flippin' COLD now! Is it cool to freeze your A off?!  And am I a bad mother for giving up the fight and saying whatever, if you wanna pretend you aren't cold, go ahead and freeze your little butt off!?

Why do we say sleeping like a baby? Whoever started this one had clearly not met my baby number 2, the Dracenator, cause I swear I didn't get an uninterrupted night's sleep until that boy was 2 years old. He didn't believe in sleep.

Why did my neighbor think it was perfectly okay to fertilize his yard with human waste compost? It's the most disgusting thing I've ever smelled in my life! We can't open the windows or spend any time outside without gagging and the flies are coming in in droves. I'm trying to be an active participant in loving thy neighbor but dude, come on! 

Why do so many retailers think late September/early October is the perfect time to start putting out Christmas stuff and why does it infuriate me so much?  It turns me into the Grinch and I don't appreciate it. 

Why did the writers of Desperate Housewives seem to forget that Gabby and Carlos had another daughter besides Juanita?  There used to be a younger daughter too, did there not?  Did she run away?  Did they give her away?  Do they keep her in her room 24 hours a day?  Where is that girl?  Enquiring minds really want need to know!

Why does Spongebob live in a pineapple?  I mean, I'm no marine biologist but I'm pretty sure pineapples don't typically grow under the sea. 

Why did my husband and apparently many others, according to Google, think that John Cougar Mellencamp's song Pink Houses says I remember when you could starve a flower?  Cause to me, personally, starve a flower sounds absolutely nothing like stop a clock. 

Why do we not question someone's sanity when they say a little bird told me?  Cause you know we totally would if someone said a little frog told me or a little squirrel told me.

Why am I still on the computer pretending I don't have 6 loads of laundry, unmade beds and a dirty kitchen all calling my name?

Why did I say those inanimate objects are calling my name because if they really were calling my name I'd be out of this house so fast your head would spin?

And why do we say things like your head would spin because the only time I ever saw a head spinning was on The Exorcist and I haven't been able to watch a scary movie since. (I just googled Exorcist in google images and there is no way on God's beautiful green earth I'm gonna be able to post one of those pics on my blog.  I'm probably gonna have nightmares tonight....Why did I do that?)

Why don't y'all have a great day but don't take any wooden nickels and try not to ask why too much?  ;-) 


  1. What a fun and interesting post today! I totally agree with you about the Christmas decorations coming out WAY TOO EARLY! Its sooo annoying!! I mean, geesh, can we get thru Thanksgiving without constant reminders of XMAS shoved down our throats?!

  2. Amen!

    If it makes you feel any better, my 12 and 13 year olds think they NEVER need jackets/coats. Ughhhh.

  3. I agree with you...loafing like a dog is more like it :-)

    Your neighbor definitely has some issues! Yuck!! :-(

  4. Yes, I have to beg my eight year old to wear a coat. Apparently he feels it makes him look like a freak ???

  5. This made me laugh because I often ask questions like this too. There's a phrase I tack onto the end of sentences sometimes a mug. It makes no sense at all!

  6. I can relate to all of these! Well, except for the neighbor thing - that can't be legal. Human waste is a biohazard - for real. Call the Health Department, GROSS!!!!

  7. LOL this cracks me up! You are so right on these girl. :)

  8. Our kids wear uniforms to school. We were having an issue with one of our older girls (14+). Her dad discovered that her skirt was exactly the same length as our 6 year old's skirt? My kids want to wear jackets all the time. But, they also want to wear shorts everyday with the jacket?

    What's up with that?

    As far as your neighbor and his fertilizer. Why don't you guys use the bathroom out in your yard or his. Maybe he will "see" how gross it is.
