Why Is It...?

Why is it:

1. That whenever I have money to spend, I can't find anything to buy?

2. That as soon as I sit down, someone asks for a drink?

3. That when I'm craving chocolate, there's none to be found? But then when I'm dieting it's everywhere?

4. That no matter how many times I clean the bathroom(s), they still reek of urine?

5. That if I'm in a hurry to get somewhere, I inevitably get stuck behind Granny going out for her Sunday drive? On a TUESDAY.

6. That my children feel it necessary to visit every stinking public restroom?

7. That we can't ever find matching mittens and gloves in the Trenches?

8. That I seem to never be wearing my warm Ugg boots on the days the train is late so my toes feel like they're frostbitten?

9. That when I straighten my hair, it looks frizzy? And that when I curl my hair, it looks frizzy?

10. That every single time I enter a public library, I have to pee?

11. That 3 of these questions have to do with urination?

12. That the word "stimulate" makes me giggle?

13. That it seems to take so long to get in shape, but it only takes a second to become out of shape?

14. That the Entourage season is way too short?

15. That when I can't think of an idea for a blog post, I resort to a lame list like this?

Got any more for me?

So with you on #10, including large book shops!

Okay, now I feel much better about my bathroom smelling like urine no matter what I do. I have blown my top several times in the past few days from little boys peeing over the side of the toilet right after I have scrubbed the tile grout with a brush on my hands and knees!!

Good to know I am not the only one with this dilemma.

Lists aren't lame.. I'm a list kinda girl myself. Love them!
And I totally agree with you on many of them! Being a mom of 2 boys, I often wonder if ANY pee gets into the toilet.

Lists aren't lame - I resorted to one just yesterday.

#10 I have the same problem
#14 Hell Yeah why is that?

You said "stimulate." Tee hee tee hee tee hee. Why does "tee hee" make me think of "pee pee"?

Elaine said...

I'm with you on #10...for me it's Barnes and Noble.

You just wrote my whole list for me! Thanks for letting me know I'm not alone!

#11 made me laugh out loud!

Do you really want answers? 'Cause I might have a couple for you . . . Have you washed the walls in your bathrooms? I had that problem too and when I complained to my husband that was his recommendation. No, I didn't make him do the cleaning but only because he's a janitor at an elementary school ;)
Pee urge in book stores, etc. Me too - I think because it's so quiet and relaxing!
Yes, lists are great. Thanks for making me LOL!

1. That whenever I have money to spend, I can't find anything to buy? And as soon as I spend that money, an unexpected bill comes up?

Jenn@ The Crazies said...

I agree with you on #6... and my children not only have to visit them all... but they have to take off every article of clothing to ... poop ... lol.. and they end up doing that in EVERY public restroom???

I think this list is hysterical! I'm working on improving my blog through the Blog Improvement Project, and one of the suggestions for varying content is to do a list like this, which I'm not good at.
I apologize in advance if I've already left this comment here... I hope you will take a minute to stop by my blog and check things out. I have started a group for bloggers who live in New England. The only obligation is to post our button.

Found you via Blog Around the World

I know the answer to #4! Because your kids get pee EVERYWHERE just like mine!

The word "stimulate" makes me giggle, too. And kudos to you for not letting writer's block stop you from writing a great post!

Here are a few more:
--That when you get laid off from work you have time to fly to visit friends but no extra money so you don't go anywhere
--That whenever you do NOT check the toilet seat for sprinkles that is the time they are there (at my house with 3 boys).
