Do You Wonder About These Things?


Many times, I wake up around 3:30 a.m., can’t get back to sleep until 5:30 – 6:00 a.m. Husband Terry wonders (a) why I can’t get back to sleep right away, and (b) what I think about. I believe I must have a lot of adrenaline. Therefore, when my eyes are open, I’m AWAKE. This is extremely useful when the dinosaurs are about to attack or, say, a bear is entering your bedroom. Other than those scenarios I ponder:

When are we going to run out of granite? Seriously, learning in high school earth science how long it took to create granite and almost every kitchen and bath in all the communities reading this and all over the world, how long can the supply last? Ditto for Himalayan salt; soon, there will be beds made of this stuff with 25% off coupons on Memorial Day.

What about flounder? Almost all of the restaurants in Wilmington and the surrounding areas serve flounder in many different ways. Is this particular kind of fish that prolific? Isn’t it more difficult   to reproduce when it looks like a giant stepped on you?

Let’s talk about another concern. Refrigerator water filters! Recently my fridge told me I had nine days left to purchase a replacement. Oh yeah, what happens on day 10? Am I not allowed to push either the water or ice buttons; do the filter police show up? So, I paid the FIFTY DOLLARS for a brand name filter. Who knows what would happen if i installed an imposter? I read the box. Wow, so this is so pure, I’ll be walking on water after drinking a few glasses. Maybe I should bathe in it!

Ok, one more thing. When working with the Word program, why does it think it knows what I’m about to say? Does it have mind-reading capabilities? When I’m typing along, all of a sudden, a word I know I have spelled correctly has a blue squiggle under it. Whoa, think of the possibilities. If l hold up the Wall Street Journal stock page to the monitor, will Word type out what stocks to invest in? Now, we’re talking…but now I’m exhausted. Time for a nap and perhaps more to ponder!
