The South

Where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter; summer starts in April; front porches are wide and words are long; macaroni and cheese is a vegetable; pecan pie is a staple; Y’all is the only proper pronoun; chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy; everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed. -unknown

  • Why does Reese always wake me up about 30 minutes before my alarm is supposed to go off? That leaves me with not enough time to fall back asleep.
  • Why does my hairdryer cord always need un-twisting?
  • Why is it still dark when I leave for work in the mornings?
  • Why do people speed to work? I mean, you are just going to work-nowhere fun!
  • Why are insurance companies outsourcing to India? So when you call you talk to “Kumar” who refers to himself as “Bob”
  • Why do cosmetic companies constantly change their packaging so that you have to buy new compacts, etc. every so often?
  • Why did I think Bobby McFerrin (singer of Don’t Worry, Be Happy) was dead? (He is not)
  • Why do they play Taylor Swift songs on “rock” radio stations?
  • Why is my husband smarter than me?

Honey, it sounds like you need a break. From it all.

Sounds like you've been around kiddos for too long, asking "why" all the time.

Melissa Lester said...

These are good questions. You must be very smart to be thinking about them. Does Brett have the answers?

Why do stars fall from the sky,
everytime you walk by?

See, you are in good in good company. Even the talented Karen Carpenter had unanswered questions...
