Things I'm Curious About

Four-year-olds are not the only ones who ask 'why'. These questions run through my head all the time, so I figured it was time to get them out. Please enlighten me if you know the answers.

I would like to know...

why the gender assigned to wear makeup is the same gender most likely to cry on any given day, requiring a makeup re-do.

why people assume you never eat if you weigh less than 150 pounds and slightly resemble a toothpick.

if Emeril ever tires of cooking, or Oprah of talking.

why residential architects, after about 1960 (with few exceptions), stopped using their imaginations to design tract homes.

what I have to say to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

why we forget dreams.

why finding "balance" is so tricky.

why I'm embarrassed about my part-time job.

why chocolate is that good.

how Creation is so readily denied. My thumb could be as long as my leg, your eyebrow hair could grow an inch an hour, and grass could be razor sharp. But it all fits together perfectly.

in what ways we would be different if we'd been born in another era, another culture.

That's all for now. I'm off to explore.

  2. And I wonder why people wonder so much! Haha!
