Things I do that baffle me...
« on: 26/03/2009 12:10:16 »
Hello all

As a human being, I find I do things that baffle myself. I have spent many hours of introspection to figure out why, and I am still baffled. I thought I would share a couple of them with you, then perhaps you can share yours, and we can bond together and form a commune of baffled people... complete with nakedness and goats ( ok ok I got involved in the fantasy there!)

1) I lose my cup of coffee, yes thats right I lose it. I wander round the house from room to room doing usual domestic bits, and along with me goes my cup of coffee. But I put it down somewhere and then can't find it again! And it's always somewhere daft like behind the curtains or on the lowest level of bookshelf! So upon not being able to find my coffee, and feeling unable to face life without it, I go and make myself another, which I promptly lose again. The net result is I am coffee bereft and my house is full of cold half full cups of coffee!
Why do I do it???!!!

2)From time to time we all get a small flap of skin protruding from the side of the fingernail, ( I think its called the quick). When I get a said piece of offending skin it annoys me, and needs removing. Every cell in my body screams " DONT PULL IT! get some nail clippers" so what do I do?? Grip it between my teeth and pull it up to the elbow! Resulting in pain and soreness!
Why do I do it??

3) My bin in the kitchen, is a big bin with a lift up flap on the lid. Its easy to empty when full, just lift the bag out gently and take it out to the dustbin.
So why when it is full, do I insist of packing everything down in it tight so when I decide I really am going to empty it, its impossible to pull out gently. Instead I have to heave the bag out, paranoid of course that it will split, whilst puffing and panting like I am in labour!!
Why do I do it???


 ;D Answers on a postcard.

1- Design a cup beeper to track your coffee like a phone.. something that clips to the handle or something. put the base by the coffee pot! Make a million bucks! Use one of those key trackers...
Don't know why you do it!

2-Wear clippers on a chain around your neck.. or keep a pair in each room.. avoids the running around looking for them..
Again don't know why you do it.

3- buy a trash compactor they are great and it will fulfill your desire to smash things and be thrifty!

This I think stems from wanting to be more efficient and save the earth, the space, the expense, etc etc

No I am always sorry for things and don't know why... LOL

I cry ...

I say stupid things before my mouth engages and they are not what I mean and thus stick my foot in my mouth and then I misunderstand things and others misunderstand me too..
Well I talk to openly usually makes people uncomfortable... I try to not be so serious but I am FLAWED AND CAN'T HELP MYSELF!

I don't. I am not a cannibal. I use nail clippers and my Swiss Army pen knife.

I eat the bone marrow out of lamb bones and then worry about scrapie transferring to human beings for the next few weeks.

I cut the top off my verruca even though I know it will bleed like stink.

When I'm drunk I tell women I am bisexual and then regret it as they think I fancy them! I'm happily married thanks.

Suggestion: Just tell them you're married right outa the chute. Or is it the head games you're looking for?
