Thursday Thoughts

I have a roving mind. I’m sure that’s a shock to everyone. Through the course of each week I tend to accumulate random wonderings in my mind, most of which never evolve into anything other than a niggling question that’s going to bother me until I 1) ask someone who knows or 2) go find the answer myself.
Thoughts lately:
1) I keep my house at 70 degrees, either through heating or cooling. So why, during wintertime do I wear pants and sweatshirts inside, but during summer I have shorts and tank tops on? It’s the same temperature inside… but my body feels that heat or cold outside…. 
2) Who was the first person to think, “Hey, I wonder what the white stuff coming out of a cow tastes like?” And why cows? Why not horses, or – cats! There’s tons of cats in the world, with tons of nipples on them – why don’t we milk cats?

3) The universal sign when we want someone to roll their car window down is a fist and a circular motion, like we’re turning an invisible handle. But there aren’t handles to roll down windows anymore – will this little dash of ASL hang on, or will we soon be making little REDRUM finger motions at each other when we want to talk to someone in a car?

What are your Thursday Thoughts? Email them to me, and if you’re weird enough, I’ll share them!

  1. The motion for “Hang up the phone” is a bit outdated, too. Who has to put a phone back on the set to hang it up anymore? But it sticks. I think it will be around until we all have chips in our heads and can think our thought onto other people's internal display screens, much like speedometers displayed in a windshield;)


  2. Re:1 – Yes, yes, I feel exactly the same way. When it's hot out, as it is today at 100 degrees, I'm able to wear close to nothing. Yet, in the winter, I feel the need not only to hike up the thermostat, but to wear warm clothes. It's odd.


  3. Angela – what? Someone thought of this already? And here I think I'm original….

    Suma – Dude, no clue. Words I've got covered, cooking questions…. er…. ask someone who actually does that stuff 🙂

    Kelly – great point! Today's phones are so different as to what hangs them up (flip, slide, push a button, etc.) I suppose there will never be an updated sign for hang up the phone that is universal.

    Anna – Oh good, I'm not weird. Either that or you and I are both weird.

    AG – Hey, no problem 🙂
