I'll Never Understand, the random list

Some things I'll never understand:
  1. Why the couple ends up in separate bathtubs in the Viagra commercial (thanks, Karen!)
  2. Why at a certain point in the wash cycle, my dishwasher flashes the words “Ho Ho;”
    is it judging me or is it happy about Christmas coming?
  3. Why almost soft-porn sex is used to sell hamburgers (Hardees), & pomegranate juice (POM)
  4. Why I keep getting stuck with neighbors who burn trash daily and have incessantly barking dogs-- in a subdivision, not the backwoods of Alaska (apologies to Alaskans)
  5. Why my cat apparently sheds more hair weekly than covers her entire body
  6. Why people keep telling me they have a friend who looks exactly like me (my chance to use the word doppleganger!)
  7. Why an unnamed family member puts clothes on the floor next to the empty clothes hamper
  8. Why I never find priceless valuables in the attic like the folks on Antiques Road Show
  9. Why I am an animal lover and yet such a hopeless carnivore
  10. Why whatever line I get in at the supermarket will be the line that moves excruciatingly slow
  11. Why when I was twenty people who were forty seemed incredibly, sadly, pitiably old (now they're hotties) 
  12. Why I thought it was a great idea to commit to writing a blog post every day for a month: NaBloPoMo remorse (not really, but yeah, kinda, but no, it's good for me). Have mercy!
What miscellaneous, nonsensical, whimsical things don't make sense to you? 


  1. #2: Now I'm wondering why your dishwasher flashes "Ho Ho" at you.

    #6: This happens to me too! Except it's always that I look just like their Aunt Norma. I occasionally wonder if everyone is secretly related to aforementioned Norma except me.

    #7: I do this *blush*.

  2. #7 nobody's perfect!
    #6 Last time this happened someone rushed up to hug me & started jabbering to me until she finally said, "Oh, you're not Jessica, are you?" It was kind of sweet, if odd. My doppelganger is nice?! Yours must be too, if she's Aunt Norma. :-)
    #2 I think someone at Frigidaire is laughing at my expense.

  3. Ah, the "Ho" is for Christmas, not "Ho" as mind.

    Gosh, I wish I had something witty to add. Thanks for the giggle!

  4. Thanks for assuming the best interpretation! And ho-ho-ho to all!

  5. Hahahahaha! I don't understand 15-space parking lots for stores that obviously serve about 300 people at a time. Especially when those lots charge $5 per hour for parking. Why? To ensure all clients reach a shrieking level of stabbiness before they enter the store? Maybe it's because I don't drive, but that's a puzzler for me.
    Thanks for the chuckles!

  6. Ohh, that's a good one. Seems like it out to be illegal! Grrr.
    Thanks for the comment!
