What The Heck Wednesday

Welcome to "What the Heck Wednesday." I have SO many questions, and SO few answers. I need your help. Feel free to answer any and all....

Why don't people use turn signals? Are some vehicles no longer equipped with these handy devices?

Why do people go through the drive-thru bank line when they don't have their paperwork ready? Shouldn't the teller make them go INSIDE?

Who woke up one morning and decided that the mullet would be a great hairstyle? Why do some people still believe that to be true?

How does one slice of pizza turn into six pounds on my butt?

Why can't I read the letters that I am required to type in order to leave bloggy love for my friends in the blogosphere?

Where does the time go?

Why does food have to taste so good?

How does my cat lick herself like THAT?

If I decided NOT to cook dinner one night, would my family starve to death?

Why do my clothes keep shrinking in the dryer?

Why do they grow up SO fast?

How can I make a living blogging? Could I quit my day job?

Will I EVER meet any of you?

How do I always manage to pick the slowest line in the grocery store?

Why can't I quit work and go to the beach every day?

Is it wrong to tan?

Does anal retentive have a hyphen?

Has Kiefer Sutherland ever been married? What could possibly be wrong with him?

When did I become my mother?

What was so great about Marcia, Marcia, Marcia?

Is it strange that I would still like to become a Marine Biologist? at 42?

Why do I miss my grandmother so much? Still?

Are you still reading this?


What is the purpose of a kelp supplement?

If a bear.........oh, never mind.

I was running errands the other day and went to make a right hand turn and there was no signal. I ran around all day cussing up a storm whenever I had to go right. Fixed now tho.
Don't even get me started on the people that to this day have a mullet. Urgh!!!!
My clothes sometimes shrink just sitting in the closet. What the hell!!!
I think YES we will meet! Maybe. Hopefully:)
A marine biologist? Sounds exciting.
There actually are bloggers who do this as a full time job. I couldn't do it because I like getting to know the people I read and visa versa.
I too still miss my dad terribly.

Once again, I am literally losing it after reading your blog of questions! This is some seriously funny stuff. Thanks for always making me laugh or smile, whichever comes first! Love ya and we have a high probability of meeting...yeah for the marine biologist...I went back to school at 40 to finish in Environmental Engineering...go for it!

Thoughtful questions...I have often wondered myself! Which reminded me of the bank drive thru experience...the other day I went thru and wrote on my withdraw slip that I needed 30- $1 bills...well she sent them out to me and then she said...that the next time I would have to come inside for something like that ...that it takes too long to count out that amount! GIVE ME A BREAK! THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE THERE FOR! I use to work as a bank teller and occaisonally worked the drive thru window...could not believe that it took too much of her time to count out 30-$1 bills. I seriously need to contact the president of the bank on that.

Why do my black clothes fade to whiter but my white clothes turn yellow?

Lori said...

Why does hair HAVE to turn gray?

Keeper Of All Things said...

Why does all the picture my husband take never include me looking good?
Every holiday morning he'll shove a camera in my face but later when I'm all dressed up .....nothing!!!

Amy said...

So funny! My mom works as a teller at a bank-she'd love that one. The one that made me laugh is Kiefer!!!I can tell you why he's not ever watched him in an interview? Yawn.

Great post! I saw you over at SSG and decided to check you out. Very funny! I don't have any answers for you though...but darn I ask a lot of those same questions all the time. Have a great day!

Anonymous said...

These are great! There are a few I will keep an eye out for. I really need them answered too.

:) Happy Wednesday, tho!!

(Sometimes!) Serendipitous Girl said...

YES we will meet! I'm coming over tomorrow for my pool party remember?! And BECOME a marine biologist! Life is too short to not love and be excited about what you do. Can I ride Shamu if you ever work at Sea World? And for those of us in the Northwest? WHEN did it become okay for semi trucks to drive in the fast lane?

Amy said...

I like the movie with Kiefer & Reese Witherspoon-is it called Highway? He plays such a bad guy in it-it's a dark comedy. And I'll admit it I'm a fan of the orignal lost boys...shhhh don't tell anyone!

Keeper Of All Things said...

oh I have another one ....just happen to me.....maybe TMI.....why does the phone always ring in the middle of a poop????

"How does one slice of pizza turn into six pounds on my butt?"

that brings up a question of my own. How in the heck do you only eat one piece??

As to making a living blogging--if you figure that one out, let me know!

Suz Broughton said...

Ba Ha ha! Don't you feel better now?
I don't think people should go through the drive thru at banks unless they have kids in the car or are somehow impaired. What the heck? Pop out of your car!

Amy said...

Oh, as far as meeting one of us, if I were passing through your town I would so meet you for lunch somewhere girl.

You just inspired me. After I finish putting this six pounds on my arse (eating pizza as a I type) I'm going to create a post answering all these. Well the ones I can anyhow.

Great questions and I think I could add a ton more :) Like why does time seem to move faster as you get older? Why do we continue to go back to the refrigerator to see whats there when we know we have not put anything new in it? Why do people insist on traveling in the left passing lane on the interstate and not go the speed limit?

I so think we could come up with the answers for these questions over Hillbilly Surprise and 6 lb pizza! Let's get together and try :)

My clothes shrink in the dryer, I miss my grandmother like crazy and I want to know how to make a living at this blogging thing.

And it is never,ever, wrong to tan. It is wrong not to.

Queen of Shake-Shake said...

Why have I only lost 5 lbs after exercising for an hour or more a day, 4-5 times a week for 4 months?

Travel Girl said...

I'm not good at numbers so why do they always put me in charge of the money?

As a good friend once explained to me about tanning... "Honey, brown fat looks better than white fat."
