In a departure from any thoughts about Locked Doors, Mask Wearing, or the more serious issues we face right now, today I present my actual "Thoughts for Thursday":
1- I really wish high school had offered a class in Personal Finances and Tax Prep instead of Geometry 2.
2- I spend more time Googling phone numbers that call me than actually answering the phone.
3- As a kid, "Because I said so" seemed so unfair, as an adult, It makes complete sense.
4- My social life was pretty close to "Quarantine" to start with.
5- I will never get back all of the time I spent trying to fold a fitted sheet.
6- The Olympics should have 1 "Regular" person compete in each event for the sake of comparison.
7- I've woken up every morning for almost 20,000 days and I'm still terrible at it.
8- Christmas went from feeling like a magical holiday to a deadline.
9- They make "Do Not Touch" signs in Braille.
10- Kids today will never know what it's like to live your life not knowing the answer to some random piece of trivia- "I think Tom Cruise was born in Colorado" or the correct lyrics to a song- "I'm not talkin' 'bout the Linen".
11- Why aren't history classes longer now than they were 50 years ago?
12- How do Deer know to use the "Deer Crossing" locations?
13- They need to have Billionaire contestants on the Price is Right. I want to see if they think the price of RiceARoni is more than $50.
14- Why is the phrase "Tuna Fish" normal, but not "Chicken Bird"?
15- If people could fly, it would be considered exercise and most wouldn't do it.
16- Nothing makes me feel as old as how far I have to scroll down when entering my birth year on a website.
17- We don't make "U" turns, we make "n" turns.
18- When babies are born, we post their weight and length, much like when we're fishing.
19- If a Pinata doesn't break, it's broken.
20- How much time has to pass for Grave Robbing to become Archeology?
21- Someone wearing a Ski Mask is more likely to be robbing a place than skiing.
22- The ocean has meat, salt and veggies in it- it's basically Soup.
23- You never hear much about the Original "Zealand".
24- It never says that Humpty Dumpty was an egg.
25- Do regular dogs see Police Dogs and think, uh oh, it's the cops?
There you go- 25 completely useless thoughts that let you forget about how crazy things are right now.
Back to work...
