Do You Laugh When You Wonder?
My mom is always asking questions on random things in life. She is always wondering.
So I thought I would add her wondering question to our website. After all, our natural curiosity and wonder often can lead to those little moments in life that help you laugh.
So with that, let’s share her first one!
I Wonder: Rabbits & Lettuce
My name is Faye, and I’m one of those people who is curious about almost everything. So most of the time I have to find the answer to my questions. I’ve been thinking it may be easier if I reached out to others for help in finding the answers.
Everything I wonder about doesn’t necessarily mean it’s important, but to me it is, if only because I want to know. I’ll give you an example:
I live in the dessert and we have rabbits in our yard, (odd rabbits in a desert, but that’s a question for another time). I have been giving the rabbits any bits and pieces I cut off of vegetables when I am cooking… like celery, carrots, etc. One day I was making a salad, saving the scraps when it hit me….. All our lives we have been told that lettuce has absolutely no nutritional value. So I started thinking why do rabbits eat and thrive on lettuce?
So everyone, what is the answer? Any ideas? Please let me know and anyone else who might read this that now wonders too.
If I find the answer first I will write about it. Till next time…
~~~till we laugh again~~~
You Know You are Full When the Sneezing Begins
When I wrote Do You Sneeze for Odd Reasons, I mentioned how I would sneeze after I ate ice cream. Now I sneeze after I eat period.
I’ve sneezed after eating ice cream for quite sometime, then a few years ago I started to sneeze half way into my meal. Not just once mind you, but 5,6,7 times. LOL
Some foods bring it on earlier than others. I read somewhere it was some gene that mutates that normally triggers your sneezing when something gets in your nose and somehow it triggers with your stomach too.
The fun part is when I’m at work and grab lunch at my desk. People go, “Tammy must be eating”. Then they laugh.
The hard part is when folks start the “bless you”. Did you know that most folks get irritated saying bless you around the 3 or 4th time? 🙂
I always let them off the hook on the 2nd one saying that one will be good for all of them.
I still don’t know what causes them and I don’t know if they will ever go away. Most of the time it doesn’t bother me. Unless of course I also drank a big glass of water and you can imagine what that and 7 sneezes might cause. (I know what you are thinking, no, I haven’t peed my pants…LOL)
So, do you sneeze when you eat?
You aren’t alone. My post from back then has a lot of folks stopping by to say they are glad they aren’t the only ones. Nope, You are in a special club of not normal sneezers. I wonder if we should have a special badge of honor?
I’d welcome you all!!
~~~till we sneeze, I mean laugh again~~~
Look Like a Brainiac With These Fun Science Facts
We all like to look like a smart person. So next time you are trying to impress your friends, drop some of these Science Bombs and drop the mike. Walk away with them wondering when did you get so smart!
Peanuts are one of the ingredients in Dynamite (Who knew they were so explosive?)
The Dead Sea is so dense with salt, you can easily float on it without drowning (Lay out there with some tequila and lime)
A dogs heart beats 40 times a minute faster than yours (And you just thought they were glad to see ya)
The hottest planet in the solar system is Venus. It can get up to 864 degrees (I’ll stop complaining about my weather here in Arizona now)
There is enough energy in one bolt of lightning to power a home for two weeks. (funny, when it hit my house we lost power)
When baby giraffes are born, they drop six feet to the ground and land on their heads (Guess they aren’t like cats and flip around)
The shark has to keep moving to stay alive (unless they are eating you)
The penguin is the only bird who can swim but cannot fly (I wonder if they get jealous of the other birds)
When Joseph Gayetty invented toilet paper in 1857, he had his name printed on each sheet (There are cleaner ways to give an autograph)
There is enough gold in the Earths crust to cover the entire land surface knee deep (So does quick sand get you there faster?)
The microwave was invented after a researcher walked by a radar tube and a chocolate bar melted in his pocket (Everyone knows you freeze your chocolate not melt it)
The human eye blinks an average of 4,200,000 times each year (That is 11,506 times a day!)
In your lifetime your body will produce more than 25,000 quarts of saliva (Ok, this one is just gross to think about)
If you stretch a Slinky out flat it measures 87 feet long (Yes, but then it can’t go down your stairs anymore)

A Zebra is actually white with black stripes (They didn’t have any other color paint)
Studies show that right handed people tend to scratch with their left hand (I knew deep down they wanted to be a lefty)
55,700 people in the US are injured by jewelry each year (I knew those broaches were dangerous!)
The rings of Saturn are made of ice chunks, some as small as an ice cube and some are as big as a house! (I’m still picturing a world where an ice cube and a house are floating in the air side by side)
The average person falls asleep in 7 minutes (Rut ro, some of you never made it this far!)
Now, don’t you just feel so much smarter all ready?
Now go wow your friends and family!!

No, not your belly button silly.
Although, that would have probably made a funnier post.
No, I’m talking about ~~ Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
Basically introverts get their “energy” by being alone and recharging themselves. Extroverts get their “energy” from others. They get joy and excitement out of being around others.
If given a chance, introverts would prefer to be alone doing what they love (can be anything, reading, TV, computer, gardening, doesn’t matter). While extroverts would prefer to P A R T ~ aaaaa. They love to be around others and the thought of being alone drives them batty.
If there is a party going on, the extroverts love to be the first ones there and the last to leave. Introverts are thinking of every reason to get out of the sill thing. “Cough, cough, I think I feel a cold coming on.”
Extroverts see a crowd of people and start to salivate at the thought of joining them. Introverts hyperventilate at the thought of having to join them.
I am an introvert. However, I will get folks to disagree when I tell them. Why? Shouldn’t it be obvious?
I wish it was. Turns out there are a lot more folks like me. We have learned to succeed in the work place by giving speeches, teaching people, or even getting involved in a conversation or two.
What you don’t see is our internal dialog shouting for us to RUN!
Sure we can have fun, but in our head we are already looking forward to getting home and turning off all the noise around us.
So, are you an In -e or an Out-e?
