Unanswered Questions

While I don’t spend much time on Facebook, occasionally I come across a post that’s insightful or brings a smile to my face.  This was the case recently when I saw a post from a friend with a New Years message.  I’ve reprinted it here in the hope that it prompts you to think of some answered questions of your own, or that it just brightens your day.

It’s the end of 2023, I am 70+ years old, and I still have so many unanswered questions!!!! 

I still haven’t found out who let the dogs out...where’s the to get to Sesame Street... why Dora doesn’t just use Google Maps...why all flavors of Fruit Loops taste exactly the same, or how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie pop?  

I’m wondering…why eggs are packaged in a flimsy carton, but batteries are secured in plastic that’s tough as nails... why “abbreviated” is such a long word, or why there is a “d” in ‘fridge’ but not in refrigerator?  

Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor yet dish washing liquid is made with real lemons...why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections...and why you have to “put your two cents in” but it’s only a “penny for your thoughts” (where’s that extra penny going??).  

Why The Alphabet Song and Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star are sung to the same tune... and why did you just try to sing those two previous songs?  What exactly is Victoria’s Secret and, Where's Waldo?  

Can you hear me now…and do you really think I am this witty?  I actually got this from a friend, who stole it from her brother’s girlfriend’s uncle’s cousin who lived next door to an old classmate’s mailman. 

Now, it is your turn to take it from me.  Copy and paste, change your age...please play the game.

P.S: I still don’t know the way to San Jose!

Happy New Year my friend.
