I'm frequently asking, "Why?" I research a lot of questions but the ones I had recently just didn't seem "Google" worthy. Instead I "went to the committee in my head." I love that line. It's not original. I borrowed it from a James Patterson novel. Anyway, here are some of my questions and the "committee's" response...
Q: Why do squirrels seem so preoccupied when hanging out in the road?
A: We think squirrels have been given a great ability to concentrate.
Q. Why do I have one song playing in my head for hours at a time?
A: Don't question it. Sing along! And you know squirrels might also have one song playing in their head too!
Q: Why did I buy insurance for my iphone for $9.99 a month (for the past 18 months which equals roughly $180.00) and then have to pay $199.00 for a new iphone because the microphone broke and no one could repair it for less than $199.00?
A: We don't know. That makes no sense. However, if you had been a squirrel you wouldn't have been tempted to buy an iphone in the first place.
Q: Why can't I remember when I arrive at the store the 4 things I came to buy?
A: Because you probably had a squirrel encounter on the way to the store and that's all you can remember.
Q: Why do people stop in front of me on the road, causing a traffic jam, because they want to change lanes?
A: We think they might simply have a squirrel-like ability to concentrate on only one task at a time.
In closing, I have a friend at the golf course that visited me today. He came to the front door and we talked. Yes, my friend is a squirrel and he was my inspiration for today's blog entry. Why? I don't know, he just showed up and all these questions popped up in my head!
