Ask and you shall receive.
It is my goal in life to make your dreams a reality.
Just ask Britt or Lucie. Weeks ago, they demanded I do something with my lone asparagus stalk. I heard their request, took note and moments later, a photo shoot went down because that’s what urban gardeners do, right? Don’t answer that.
On Monday, you guys asked for more blog posts containing my random ramblings and senseless mutterings, which I find absolutely fascinating. I also intend to deliver by sharing some purposeless factoids, in only a way I can. Alright fine, I’m sure there are others who can pass along weird little tidbits, but they’re probably working with a whole six pack and in my case, I drank half the package long ago. Do people even drink packages (raises eyebrow)?
Moving on to my mumblings, Out Loud of course, because we should always mutter to ourselves in ways which creep out our neighbors. Right? You probably shouldn’t answer that.
- Running is tough when you don’t do it regularly. Even more so when you haven’t done it in weeks (cough, feels like months, cough).
- The public park is not a good place to practice snot rockets. Not that I would know or anything.
- A normal person passes gas, on average, twenty to forty times a day. The Hubby gleaned this information from one of his pharmacy classes, which might just be worth the cost of tuition. I’m still not sure why he opted to share it with me. Hmm.
- Arachibutyrophobia is the fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth, which of course begs the question, do they have an entirely separate category for Almond Butter?
- Lions and tigers can’t purr. Neither can Oscar. While he may vibrate at times and he can be a kneading machine, he’s never uttered a solitary purr a day in his life. Therefore, he is a little lion trapped in a housecat’s body, ignoring the whole epic battle he had with his own reflection recently. He lost too; badly.
- Coca-cola was originally green. I suspect they weren’t using kale or spinach either.
- Stove top hoods are a completely unnecessary kitchen appliance. Electrical codes, smodes. Pish, posh. I do not have a hood over my stove, and I haven’t in years. Shockingly, the world has not ended, nor has my kitchen gone up in flames, despite it’s frequent use. Even crazier, my walls and ceiling aren’t adorned with smokes stains or grease.
- Almonds are a member of the Peach Family. I don’t even know what to say about this. Consider my world rocked.
- Whenever something unusual happens (a car back fires, the neighborhood dogs go wild, an unusual gang of teenagers takes to the street), I make note of the time just in case the Po-Po show up at my door the next day, asking questions. I’m pretty sure I read too many crime novels as a child.
- The right bread is magic. Even more so when you turn it into French Toast.
Your turn. Tell me some random ramblings, odd factoids and strange tidbits.
