Why is it when I order a small drink at a fast food restaurant and I am told “Sir, we only have medium and large” I want to say “Well, then according to the theory of relativity your medium IS the small?” (Actually, I don’t know that the theory of relativity has anything to do with it. It simply irritates me. Just give me your smallest one and let’s move on).
Why is it that rich and famous celebrities who barely made it out of high school are domestic and foreign policy experts? (And supposedly “smart” politicians crave their endorsement?).
Why is it patriotic and spiritual to pray for the President you voted for, but the President you didn’t vote for is destroying America and an idiot? (I have heard this often in reference to both Bush and Obama. Maybe they are both deserving of prayer. And maybe they are both . . . never mind).
Why is it that motorists merging onto the Interstate think the Yield sign refers to the guy already on the highway and not to them? (And, they usually don’t even look as they force everyone to move over).
Why is it that no one seems to know how to use “I, me, and myself” correctly? (Myself and my wife were just wondering about it. If you figure it out, please tell my wife and I).
Why is it when I am ordering a coffee at Starbucks I just can’t bring myself to say “tall” when I am ordering the “small?” (They can’t make me say it).
Why is it that everyone to the left of me is an intolerant, narrow-minded liberal and everyone to the right of me is an intolerant, narrow-minded conservative? (Maybe I’m an intolerant, narrow-minded centrist?).
Why is that people who rarely, if ever, read the Bible are experts on what Jesus would do? (Oh, that’s right, they’re rich and famous).
Why is it that a person’s opinion has come to matter more than truth? (I’m all for the freedom to have lots of opinions, even contradictory ones. But, having one doesn’t make it right. That’s why it’s called “opinion” and not “fact”).
Why is it that so many of us emphasize truth to the exclusion of love and others of us emphasize love to the exclusion of truth, when Jesus perfectly embodied both? (I know, I know, he was perfect and we are not. Still, can we work a little harder at holding to both?).
Why is it that everyone on the highway driving faster than me is a reckless idiot and everyone driving slower than me is a slow-poke moron? (I don’t think I am as obnoxious as I am starting to sound).
Why is it that I enjoy being a “senior” only when there is a discount involved? (I just wish they would decide how old you have to be to qualify. Is it 55? 60? 62? 65? I can’t keep track).
Why is it that you are actually still wasting your time reading this post? (I do appreciate it, though).
Do you have any random questions you ask yourself? In the meantime, Merry Christmas and thanks for reading.
