5 Quick Questions

The older you get, the wiser you get, right? You find the answers to more questions and things generally tend to make more sense as you age. There are a few things that still perplex me, maybe you have the answers.

  1. Why is the ride there so much longer than the ride back home?
  2. Why does my daughter go to the gym and work out for an hour, but finds it too strenuous to bend over and pick her clothes up off the bathroom floor?
  3. Why do I, and most other people, turn from Dr. Jekyll to Mr. Hyde when we get behind the wheel of our car?

4. Why does Vaseline take off mascara?
5. How is it physiologically possible that the fat from my used-to-be-sexy butt has stood up, marched itself around to my stomach and plopped itself back down again?

If you know the answers to any of these questions, I would love to know.


  1. oooh, that happened to my stomach too!! and i am in love with vaseline! it's so cheap & works great!!

  2. LOL. I don't have the answers, but I loved the questions!

  3. Ok, answers...
    1 -- because you don't get lost on the way home.
    2 -- no... there is no answer to this one.
    3 -- We morph into Mr Hyde because of vinyl fumes from the padded dash board; Detroit needs to start using organic linen instead.
    4 -- Not sure, but it's safer than dynamite.
    5 -- This is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, as in "Does my butt think this is funny?" or "I wonder who invented gravity and may I punch him?" or "I wonder what is next in the great migratory scheme of things?" or ... "I wonder if I tell my daughter that daily bending to pick up clothes ensures a taut stomach in middle age, will she buy it?"

    Thanks for the laughs!

  4. 1 the drugs haven't kicked in yet.

    2 her bend reflex hasn't fully matured yet.

    3 ...that was you? Let me get my gun.

    4 because it gives everyone an excuse to keep a jar of vaseline around. It's a fact. Yes.

    5 Gravity. It's hell.

  5. I have no answers, but I love the questions and all the other answers. LMAO

  6. Oh, number 5! Love the questions!

  7. Hahahaha! Sorry, I don't know the answer! And I didn't even know about #4! Weird!

  8. I think my daughter goes to the same gym your daughter does. Boy it must wear them out!

  9. 1. I don't feel like that. But it certainly depends on WHERE you are going.
    2. There is no FUN in picking up clothes (like you were any different). Bring the company from the gym to her room and wait. Maybe they would do it chatting and laughing over some nonsense.
    3. That's definitely the bad influence of computer games where you must drive as fast as you can, taking a lot of risk and if you fail, you just start again. Acidents are fun there.
    4. It does?
    5. And we think nothing gets donme by itself! It happens just to prove us wrong!

    Have a great day - and another...and another...

  10. What I want to know is how did your fat end up on my thighs? Explain that one missy!

  11. I'm wondering about this mysterious stomach blob myself. What gives?


If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. No need to point out my mistakes, I have family for that.
