Things like this bother me. Not in a bad way really ... just sort of pop up in my mind and make me wonder if anyone else ever thinks this way. For example:

If croutons are only stale bread bits ...
Why do they come in a sealed package?

Because you don't want them to get more soggy.

Unless you're like me...
Then you open the package
and let them sit out about two days...
And then you eat them.

It's thoughts like this that keep me from sleeping every night.

... So, next question?

Why is it as your standing next to the oven pulling out a roast and it is visible to all in the kitchen, does the husband ask, "what's for supper?"

Why is it that when I get clumsy
and say fall off the back porch or something,
mine says..."Now what did you do that for?"

And why is 'health food' so bad for your wallet while 'junk food' is bad for your body?

The youngest here always has that 'what's for dinner?' question, even when I was cooking up 3 gallons of pork loin chili in the garage.  You could smell that stuff all through the house and outdoors, since it was slow cooking for a good 7 hours with lots of scrummylicious spices.  Makes me drool just thinking about it.  Good thing we still got 2 quarts of it in the freezer.

As I can attest to from experience with my young son, milk & pablum are not the smells that come from the orifice that 50% of the time serves as an exit for his incessant gastrointestinal expulsions.

Yes, Christopher, you are correct.

But...then why doesn't the flower Baby's Breath smell like "upchuck" or "poopoo" ?

And why do people say, "I could care less" when they really mean "I couldn't care less"? And "could of" instead of "could have"? (Me thinks I dreamt about my 7th grade English teacher last night.)

Why is it that any boxed "fixings" for lunch/supper ALWAYS taste better once "tweaked" with more stuff?

LOL at Nightshade.

Ya mean you buy the hair color to change your hair color?? I buy it to look like the woman on the box modeling the hair color! haaaaaaaa No WONDER it doesn't work!

And why am I the only one in the household who puts down the darn toilet seat? Don't the 'hes' of this household EVER sit?

it takes more effort to lift a seat than to drop it down

ergo, men should be allowed to leave it up, since there is less expenditure of energy required. (and if anyone chooses to comment on the potential laziness of this idea has obviously never had to expend said energy in the middle of the night)

You have a point, Christopher. I think I prefer putting the seat down myself, quietly, than hearing a loud CLUNK in the middle of the night. But still! *haaa

Wonder if Christopher has ever run in in the middle of the night and sat down on what was supposed to be a toilet seat..and almost fallen in or got the shock of his life from the cold rim?
