This year I will become 64 years old. Upon reflection, looking back into my history, I discovered that I still have so many unanswered questions.
I still do not know "who let the dogs out"..."where's the beef"... "how to get to Sesame Street"....and "what does the fox say?"
Has anyone figured out why Dora doesn't just use Google Maps or why all flavors of fruit loops taste exactly the same?
I am still working on how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie pop (this research has contributed greatly to my diabetes).
I have spent many sleepless nights trying to figure out why eggs are packaged in a flimsy carton, but batteries are secured in plastic that is tough as nails.
I am troubled by the English language. For example...why is "abbreviated" such a long word, or why is there a D in "fridge" but not "refrigerator?"
By now you probably think I am going insane....but it gets worse...why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor and yet dish-washing liquid is made with real lemons? Why do you have to "put your two cents in" but it is only a "penny for your thoughts" (have you ever considered where that extra penny is going--I have).
Why does The Alphabet Song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune....and why did you just try to sing those two previous songs (I am pulling you into my insanity)?
And the questions just keep on coming...What exactly is Victoria's secret? and where is Waldo?....Can you hear me now? Will I ever find the answers!!
You may be asking is Steve Brown this witty? (well I can be)...but I actually got this from a friend, who stole it from a friend that stole it from her brother's girlfriend's uncle's cousin who lived next door to an old class mate's mailman. In other words it has been around, but I found it cute and thought I would share.
However, there is a point...maybe we should stop focusing on the questions that have no answers in 2019 and focus on the answers God has given us!
This is my story...
