(Mental curiosities of what's around me)
by Sabini Row

-- Why is it that when everything is washed and put away, we have more forks left in the kitchen drawer than spoons?

-- Why is it that when doing laundry one sock tends to go missing from the pair and new ones sprout up, leaving them mismatched and you wondering to whom these belong to?

-- Why is it that when taking some type of medication, the side effects is much worse than the illness it's suppose to heal?

-- Why is it that when we call customer service, we are put on hold and an automated voice comes on saying, "Your call is important to us...."   Now if my call is so darn important, why am I being put on hold?

-- Why do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway? Shouldn't it be the other way around?

-- Why is it warmer in Iceland, and colder in Greenland?

-- Why is it that when we go to a public restroom, the roll of toilet paper they put in the stalls fight us to a tee? The faster and hurried you go about rolling it, the more it rips?  So you try again...and pray...holding your breath as you slowly stroke the roll for more, coaxing it to share a square.  Then you become excited.  Another square is coming!  And voila!!!   What it gives you out of the painstaking effort is not one but two squares?  Grrrrrrr.  I'm thinking it's an inside job.

-- Why is it that we tend to hold on to the older style clothes we have in our closets as if they'll come back in fashion again? As if they'll fit us again?

-- Why is it that we eat more hot, spicy foods during summer and milder foods during winter?

-- Why is it that we have this thing called the freeway, when all it does is get us stuck in traffic and leave us feeling unfree?

Do you have any such curiosities?  Please share.
