10 Things I Just Don’t Understand


I apologize in advance.  Seriously, this was not the post I set out to write.  Really, I just had to get these things out of my head before I could put anything decent on paper.  So, why share it?  Ah well, I guess I am just fearless in that way.

10 things I just don’t understand:

1.  Cheese in a can

What? Was someone afraid  whipped cream was having all the fun?

2.  Donald Trump’s hair

I mean really, how much  money bank loans does it take to hire a decent hair stylist?

3.  Crocs

Hey, what’s not to get, right…they are plastic, turned up at the tip like elf shoes and make your feet look so very sexy!

4.  Hairless Cats

They just look so cold…and shriveled.

5.  Parachute Pants

‘Cause, yeah, I want my thighs to look like watermelons- oh and while you are at it,  clad them in vibrant prints and colors, too!!

6.  Canned Asparagus

It should be illegal to torture a vegetable so.

7.  Bird Spiders

No spider should be so large it requires birds for sustenance.

8.  Cockroaches with wings

Some creatures have no business leaving the ground.

9.  Snooki on the Mom track

Duh, now everyone is going to want their own little ‘short n tan’.

10.  Cloth Diapers

I know, all you green parents will stomp me for this – but seriously, don’t we suffer enough as parents without having to launder poop and pee, too?

Ok.  Now that I have that off my chest, back to work.  Thanks for listening…

  1. I agree with many of your points, although I don’t have a clue about the Snooki thing, but if the cheese in the can doesn’t need fridging then I’m interested in it for camping! Hang on, does it squirt like cream? Now that would be weird! 😉

  2. I agree with most of these – what were they thinking? LOL ESPECIALLY the cloth diapers and I even know people who use them! BUT the Donald Trump thing – MAYBE he does it so people won’t think he is as rich as he is? That way they won’t always be bugging him and asking him for money and all. He can just say “I don’t even have enough money for a decent stylist why should I give you any?” ha ha Either that or it makes him look just a little bit crazy and still makes people want to avoid him. Either way – the strategy is brilliant if you think about it.

  3. Yes to all these things (except I can’t speak on the mommy/diaper deal.) I was just talking about hairless cats the other day. I’m a huge animal lover, but even I get a little skeeved out with the hairless models. And albinos. I know they can’t help it, but I don’t have to love them.

  4. I agree with all 10! That rarely happens. Ha! The Donald just needs to come clean about that hair. Buzz it off and quit dying it orange.

  5. So agree with all but the Crocs — don’t knock Crocs, I mean when you have kids there is amazing beauty in shoes that can be hosed off! They are the only shoes I let my 4 little ones play in the backyard in.

  6. Oh, my goodness, yes! I especially agree about the asparagus in a can. Yuck, yuck, yuck! And the cockroach with wings. Yuck to infinity. (Thanks for linking this up to #findingthefunny last week!)

  7. I gotta say I worship my cloth diapers. Well, not MY cloth diapers. The ones I put on my son. We’ve saved a bazillion dollars – double that if we ever have another baby. Where we live you pay for the AMOUNT of trash you put out. So aside from paying for disposable diapers I’d be paying to have them hauled away. They’re super cute and they’re not nearly the work that people make them out to be. Plus he’s barely had a rash (other than teething) in his 18 months of life. Everything else I’m on board with 🙂 Great blog.

  8. I agree with #7, however I am very much more creeped out by the tiny ones that can get in your shirt and KILL YOU with one bite! ~Shuddering, Dan
