As we head into the weekend, it is a good thing that we all have some more free time. This means (unfortunately or fortunately, you can decide) I have some more time to think. This also means that I can come up with new blog posts. This also means that some of those blog posts don’t always make it to “production.” Some of them I leave on the cutting room floor.
But that doesn’t mean they aren’t worthy of your time. So, I’m offering you an exclusive peek into my brain so that you can get a few chuckles for your Friday and so that hopefully you can ponder some of the mysteries that have kept me up at night. After all, what’s life without a little wonder?
Bailey Dailey’s List of Mysteries
1. If we have such advanced technology, why can’t we make mirrors on our cars that do not make objects “closer than they appear”?
2. Why don’t they make those candy necklaces with other snacks? Strawberries? Pretzels? Cheese?
3. Why can I remember an embarrassing moment that happened when I was 12 but not where I left that important document I need right now?
4. Why do we fear death when it is the only certainty in our lives?
5. Why are chargers (on any device) just long enough to reach wherever you are?
6. Why do we trip when we think, “don’t trip”?
7. Why are pickle jars so hard to open?
8. Why do we lose so many socks?
9. Wait. Why do we even have socks?
10. Why don’t they make waterproof books so I can read in the shower?
11. Why does every math problem end with someone giving something away? Is everyone that generous with their watermelons that they gift them to six of their friends?
12. Why aren’t you reading this in your head with an accent?

14. Why do spiders disappear as soon as you take your eyes off them?
15. Why were lighters invented before matches?
16. Why does Australia have so many animals that can kill you painfully?
17. Why do we shape our eyebrows into little, perfect lines? Why don’t we do that with other hairs on our bodies?
18. Why do we kiss each other to show affection? Are chest bumps just not intimate enough?
19. Why do we believe in a God that we can’t see, but not Santa Claus (even though we know what he looks like)?
20. Why are you still reading this?
And, so on. Well, You’ve seen inside my head, and I hope you’re not too afraid. Just remember: stay curious!
