why?

I have a few questions I need answered. I think I must be channelling my inner three year old today.

Why do some gumballs taste like soap? Shouldn't someone be taste testing these things and thinking, "it probably wouldn't be a good thing for our customers to feel like they just took a bite out of their Lever 2000 bar. We should fix that!"

Why do some manikins have nipples but no real crotch parts? I mean, why make one end anatomically correct and not the other? Not that I would like to see plastic, flesh colored manikin genitals but I'm just saying...

Why is it impossible to put the zipper back on the teeth if you pull it all the way off? How did they get it on there in the first place?

Why is butter more and more alluring as I get older? I just don't understand how I could eat a whole stick of butter by itself, and yet, I know I could.

Why do you go to the start button on your computer to turn it off or to "end" what you are doing?

Why didn't I think of Redbox?

What questions do you want answers to?

Well as for the flesh, colored manikin parts, truly I think its an issue of discrimination. I don't think they want a law suit on their hands with one "man"ikin with a 10" plastic genital and one with a 4". This could cause some major issues, especially if you couldn't fit the model pants over a rather large well ya know.

Why was my spirit put in my body instead of Barac Obama's? lol

Why are houses not underground? It would be cheaper, cooler in the summer, warmer in the winter, cheaper on electricity, oh and tornado proof. Definitely no plane would crash into it. No one could jump out of a skyscraper under ground..just saying

I swear as we get older our cravings get stronger, there are somethings I don't know how i lived with out... like chips and salsa.. can't get enough of them!

ok Im done... :)

I want to know why everyone crowds the airport luggage claim when if we all just stood back like 3 feet everything would be perfect. So annoying.

Anyways it has been awhile since I've been on your blog--and I was glad to catch up! A couple of things...

It doesn't seem to matter what we are doing in life, I think everyone feels unfulfilled sometimes. I look at you and your beautiful kids and words can't even describe my jealousy. I worry constantly that in about 6 years when we're ready to start a family we'll have fertility problems. But I think at the end of the day you have to stick to your guns and say, "Yeah but what I'm doing right now with my life is the right thing." It's hard to remember why you had #2 or started medical school in the first place, but if you ask for confimation that it's the right thing, I promise you'll get it.

And don't forget to remind Michael that even though he spends his days taking care of other people, he needs to still remember to come home and take care of you! Trust me, he gets breaks at work, but you really don't.

Don't let anyone convince you--ever--that medicine is more important, more difficult, or more worthy of a time investment than family. I get kind of heated about this when my classmates say they don't have time to go home and see their family. BS! We all have for what we make time for. So that said, you now need to make time for you. And if you need a pedicure buddy I'm available!

The questions in life are what make us continue to look around and figure things out. If we always knew WHY or HOW or WHAT or WHO, then we wouldn't have to do anything but sit around and talk about them...

...and then google would be out of business and we all know how much we NEED google.

Anyway, love the questions. Love the pictures of your kids. Big hugs!

I remember being a teen watching my mom eat butter like noone's business and thinking it was the grossest thing ever. And now I can pretty much eat a stick all by itself.. go figure..

here's a few to add to your list...
1. why is it that all workout pants provide women with a wonderful camel toe? i mean seriously, who wants to see that?
2. why can't there be self-cleaning showers and toilets? The people who invented ovens figured out how to make it happen.
3. why do people call the nasty stuff that gets stuck under the corners of your toenails 'toe jam'. Shouldn't it be toe funk, or funk nasty??? jam connotates something pleasant in my mind.

just a few thoughts...
