I usually don't like to reuse a graphic so soon, but this fits the Weekend Assignment so well that I couldn't help it!
Weekend Assignment #129: Write about something that makes absolutely no sense to you, or that you find almost impossibly ironic. This covers a lot of ground so let me make it simpler: Write about something you just don't get. You've rolled it around in your brain, you've thought about it, and it just doesn't add up. Yeah. Tell us about that thing. From the enduring popularity of talentless celebrities to people who put mayonnaise on their french fries (yes, I'm looking at you, Belgium), there's got to be something out there that makes you go, "huh?" Or, for the kids, something that makes you go "WTF?"
Extra Credit: There's a song playing in your head right now. Tell us what it is.
There are a few things that make no sense to me... and I will share them now.
I am boggled by the fact that all baby strollers must have a tag that reads 'Remove child before folding.' Where there really that many stupid parents trying to fold up their child in a stroller to stuff it in their trunks? I guess so... there really should be licensing to procreate, you know?
I will continue in that vein about the fact that baby walkers basically don't exist anymore because so many stupid yuppies and generation x'ers apparently let their kids use them near stairs. Yes, it specifically had to be them because a whole generation of baby boomers, my parents, aunts and uncles, were all able to put 2 + 2 together and keep the walkers away from the stairs.
Personally, we had a walker with my eldest Hammer. He loved it, we loved it, and we gated the stairs. However, I had a cousin in Georgia whose son was born one week before Hammer and he took a header off her deck in a walker. No, she didn't gate the stairs. Yes, she turned her back. And, yes, somehow the walker got blamed. UN-FREAKING-BELIEVABLE!
Last but not least, toilet paper. 'Facial Quality' it states. Huh? I mean, I don't get it! I actually use stuff with ground up almonds in it to scrub the dead skin cells off my face!
I want my toilet paper to be 'sore butt quality'. And, you all know what I mean. Enough said.
Okay, moving on to the extra credit.
All week I have had this song stuck in my head since hearing it on Sunday night during the Giants vs. Colts game. It was in the background, as they were playing it before the game started in Giants Stadium.
Hells Bells by Ac/Dc. Yup, can't get it out of my head... I keep hearing the bell at the beginning of the song and then the guitar. I am sure there is a psychotherapist out there that could make a gold mine off of the significance of this bizarre fact, but I am not going to think that hard.
Have a great weekend everyone!
