Why, why, why?

Here's a few questions I've been asking, "Why?"

1) Why do men take it personally when a male dog is getting neutered? Boo commiserated and even threatened to take the dog and hide so that the dog wouldn't make his appointment. Even now that he's had his surgery, Boo keeps saying, "Awww, he has no nuts. He is sad!"

2) Why would anyone allow their kid to lay on a dirty floor of a tire place and not even think about the shoes, dirt and germs that have been walking all over that floor.

3) Why do people insist on speaking Spanish to me when I clearly don't look Hispanic?

4) Why did I just make a great new spinach artichoke casserole only to sit down and have Boo tell me that he's not really "fond" of spinach or artichokes?

5) Why does it when it rains, it pours? I mean, not only did one tire have to be replaced last week but two more this week on Boo's big "monster" truck.

6)Why is pastrami so dang good but so salty?

7) Why do I feel so tired but yet fall asleep and wake up in the middle of the night, only to be wide awake?

8) Why am I wigging out more over missing the flight to North Carolina in October than flying. (Usually I'm more concerned about the plane staying up in the air.)

9) Why do guys exchange illnesses and symptoms with one another like they are playing a game called, "Top this Pain"?

10) Why do I enjoy reading the comics in the paper before anything else?

What are you asking why about?

Why can't I crave celery instead of fried chicken and chocolate eclairs?
Oh, I burst out laughing at the men and neutered dogs comment! SO TRUE! But they sure are all for having the females fixed, aren't they?

GREAT "whys"! I too wonder how people can allow their children to lay around (or walk barefoot) thru dirty public areas.

I am coming over to have some spinach artichoke casserole!

congratulations on neutering your boy dog!!

WHY can't people mind their young children better? So much random running and shouting in aforesaid public spaces.....

Oh, I love your "why's" - they are insightful, funny and honest, just like you.

My why's these days go deep, like the meaning of life, faith, etc. They are the why's that keep me up at night. I'm working on a post about this that I hope to post later this week. I'm hoping that my why's won't continue to keep me up at night.

Here's hoping we both get some much needed sleep and peace! Cheers!

#7 is a big one for me too!
My latest why is: Why is my hair falling out faster than a speeding bullet??????

Frau said...

I love your why's!! Mines is why can't I lose any weight?

Veronica Lee said...

Why can't nosy neighbours mind their own business?!

Buckeroomama said...

Well, since you asked --

When will Z stop asking, "Why, Mommy, why?"

Rebecca Jo said...

I pretty much only get the paper for the comics.. how sad is that? hehe!! I used to save them up every week (the colored comics) & use them for wrapping paper... its really a pretty package when you add ribbon!

Nezzy said...

Why did the "strongbacks" (farmhands) neuter Tiger the Wonderdog after castrating the cattle? Oh, the questions that boggle the universe. May God bless your day!!!

Deidra said...

Great questions! I'm not in "why" mode right not. Just enjoying the moment. Proud of you for neutering your dog!

The Peach Tart said...

I love these and they're good to ponder. Mr. Peach Tart doesn't like artichokes or spinach either.

Why can't we all just get along?

Heart2Heart said...

I love all your wonderful Whys!

I wonder why do we have all these fires and yet no one in their vast knowledge of technology can devise a quick way to put them out.

Why does coffee taste to refreshing and comforting each morning?

Why doesn't it rain more here in California?

Your #3 is so funny!

And now I want a Reuben sandwich. Why do I feel like eating the world when I have a wedding dress to get into?

kyslp said...

Funny! I will eat your casserole if he doesn't want any. Yum!

blueviolet said...

My son gets the buenos dias all the time, and he doesn't have a lick of latin in him either.

I see kids doing that in restaurants and bathrooms too. It's just so gross!

I think when people speak Spanish to you, you should respond in your best fake English accent. Just for fun.

Joanna Jenkins said...

Why is chocolate ice cream so good?

Why do we have to watch every single televised Dodger game?

Why does it get so stinking hot just before school starts?

And yeah, what's up the kids laying on the floor at a tire store? Yuck.

Great post.

Oh I LOVE pastrami! yum yum yum...i am asking why about a lot of things lately!

Danica said...

I love your whys! I want to know why I am so far behind on blog reading? HA!

Actually you do look Hispanic. My husband is Hispanic too and people are always attempting to speak Spanish. He never learned so if Marcus is around he usually says something funny and laughs.
Loved your list.
