IDGIs and Issues

Saturday, November 21, 2015

Sometimes I have thoughts; lots and lots of thoughts. I have been told (are you listening Karen? ;o) that I have far too many of them for one person. Most of the time they are bouncing around my brain in a jumbled mess, though I have been known to form a coherent one periodically. I can't help but laugh when I see all of those "Ideas for Blog Posts" pins on Pinterest. I have enough post ideas running around in my head for 47 different people. What I DON'T have, is the time to sit down and bang them all out. Rampant running ideas aside, many other thoughts are questions. Lots and lots of questions. Some days (like today) I wonder if other people wonder the same things I do; particularly those niggling little things that you never can quite puzzle out. Since I am a total acronym junkie (which is often a self-entertaining pastime), it seemed only fair that I should come up with a suitable acronym in order to share them with you. IDGI = "I Don't Get It". Maybe I'm not alone in some of the things I just don't understand. Then again, it could be just me...
Photo Inset: One of the Mums I planted in the whiskey barrel planter in the visitor area (I was experimenting with erasing backgrounds and in a hurry to finish this post. I freely admit it has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the subject in this paragraph, and I almost don't care (provided I don't think about it too hard, that is ;o)

A few of my IDGIs (not too many - I don't want to scare you ;o)

- Why is it socially acceptable for a 30-something (adult?!?) to wear their Batman jammies to the grocery store?*

- Why do we need attorneys to slap legalese all over everything? My personal favorite is, "Void where prohibited." Translation: It's no good where it's not allowed. Wow. Really?

- How do people on food stamps get to buy steak and lobster at the grocery store? I have a full-time job, and (with rare celebrational exception) I don't get to eat that stuff.

- Why do manufacturers put sweepstakes and/or prize labels on their packaging that say things like, "No purchase necessary, details inside"? Now I'm not the brightest bulb on the porch, but I'm pretty darn sure somebody's gonna make me buy it if I rip it open to check out those details.

- If I am inconsistent all the time, am I not therefore by definition consistent?

- How can it still be Black Friday now that it starts on Thursdays?

AND - as long as we're on the seasonal subject - when did Christmas start arriving before Halloween?

* Upon further consideration: Why does a 30-something guy even own a pair of Batman pajamas?

Do you have things like that running through your head? Or are you slowly backing away from your screen and reaching for a phone because you think I need professional help? (I probably do ;o)

  1. I don't think it's socially acceptable to wear pajamas out of your yard (unless you are driving kids to school and not getting out of your car -guilty) once past the age of 18 months. They have pajama days at school for the kids from time to time and most of the time I don't let the boys participate.

    1. Winnie: I wouldn't think PJ's in the car would be a big deal, since no one can really "see" you. Not sure I'd have the nerve though, since it would be my luck to get into a fender bender or some other kind of something that would force me to get out of the car (most likely in front of a large crowd that included the last person I'd want to see in it *giggle* ;o)

  2. If everything that needs to be covered is covered why should it matter what it is covered with? I'd rather see someone in pajamas, because it would make me smile, than someone in not-that-much-at-all, which would make me reach for the eye bleach.

    1. Grace: THAT is one excellent point you have there. I've had several instances of looking up in the store only to think ACK! My eyes! over someone's lack of....something ;o)

  3. Maybe we can get a group rate on the professional help. I have those same thought all the time. There is a guy who comes in the store where I work. He's well over 30 and he's ALWAYS wearing lounge pants. I don't think any of them have been batman but I always think he's got to be single because no wife would let her husband out of the house looking like that.

    1. Ann: Let me know when you're ready (my Crayolas are all packed ;o) You may be right. Lol. I get that they're comfortable, but it's a little too out there for me. Clearly, I'm not quite as strange as I thought I was, eh? *laugh*

  4. Every. Freakin'. Day. I've got lots of thoughts...but most are best kept to myself. Otherwise I'm just making everyone mad at me.

    BTW...i agree with your thoughts.

    1. Lin: I try really hard to keep them to myself, but some days it's tougher than others. Glad to know I'm not the only one though ;o)

  5. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
