The blips.


I am wondering.  Again.

Headaches come my way every now and again.  I usually take mass quantities of Tylenol.  But what I don’t know is this.  If you take just one Tylenol, does it give you Full-Strength Pain Relief for 2 hours.  Orrrrr….. does it give you half-!ssed relief for 4 hours?

What ever happened to the Knickerbocker?  You know… those Knickerbockers or knickers…. those baggy-kneed trousers.  They were popular in the early 1900s.  Boys (mostly) would wear them… and at the onset of puberty, they graduated to long trousers. Kind of a rite of passage.

I just think we need Knickerbockers back.  If for nothing else… just the cooolio name.

Toyota.  You asked for it.  You got it.  Toyota.
I never warmed up to this slogan.  It didn’t work. I don’t know how many times during the ‘80s… I called up Toyota… and asked them for something.  Never got it.  Not even the Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich.

You can bounce a ball, bounce a baby, and bounce a check… and they all mean very different things.

It makes me nervous that doctors call what they do… “a practice.”  It also makes me worry that the waiting places in airports are called “terminals.”

I wish there was a “sure” way to tell which ovary we came from.  I think it would explain a lot in big families.  Heck, in small families too.

I could go on wondering all night.  But if I don’t stop now, I may not find my way back.


“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existence. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery each day.
