Lately, I’ve been puzzled with a bunch of things.
What’s up with yard guys who blow leaves into the middle of the street? Where do they think they will end up? And what’s up with those ear-splitting, gas-powered blowers? Doesn’t anyone use a rake any more?
What’s up with leaving just one? Why do people eat or drink all but the last bit? For example, drinking almost all the orange juice and leaving 1/2 ounce or eat almost all the crackers to leave just 2 or 3 crackers in the box baffles me. What’s the thought process here? Wouldn’t it be better to finish it off, toss the box and put the item on the grocery list?
What’s up with those black bars on the TV? When we switched to a widescreen HDTV , I thought I would be done seeing the horizontal black bars (aka letterbox) at the top and bottom of the screen. We were late in the game of switching to a widescreen HDTV. Well, I still see those bars. I thought the widescreen format would match the format of new movies. But it doesn’t always. Brand new DVD movie takes up only 60-70% of the screen, with the rest black. What’s up with that?
What’s up with Vince Young? Last year, former national championship QB Vince Young got injured and benched. This year, the Titans gave him another shot, after losing their first six games. Vince has led Tennessee to five wins in a row. Imagine if he had anyone on his team that could catch the ball. Go Vince Go.
What’s up with that funny noise? There’s a strange static noise that comes from the tiny OnStar speaker in the ceiling of my GMC Yukon. The strange thing is that the ONLY time I ever hear the noise is when the temperature drops below 50. What’s up with that?
Where are all the religious Christmas decorations ? I know, I know. It’s not Christmas. It’s "the holiday." Why are there not many options for outdoor Christmas decorations that depict the reason for the season. Are stores scared of being too Christian, thinking they will offend people by selling angels, nativity scenes or Christmas stars? Or has Christmas become all about inflatable Santas and peppermint sticks? I’m all for Santa Claus, elves and Rudolph the red nosed reindeer. I just want to throw some old-school decorations into the mix. Got any sources? Post ‘em in the comments, por favor.
