I Don't Get It...

Lately I've found myself shaking my head and muttering, "I don't get it." A lot. I realize this statement makes me sound like an idiot and I'm not going to completely reject that theory, but I figured I'd share some "I don't get it" moments and see if you agree with me.

1. If you're a fan of blinking Christmas lights, why must you also use the non-blinking lights on the same tree? It just looks weird. I want all or none to blink. This one-strand-blinking business just makes me think I'm having a mini-seizure. I don't get it.

2. Today I was driving to meet Michael for lunch and passed a guy advertising a certain illegal drug on his back windshield, complete with picture and local phone number. I also drove past a pretty bad car accident involving two women my age. What made both of these situations odd was that there were two police cars driving next to me the entire time, yet neither stopped for the wreck or pulled over drug paraphernalia dude. But I get a $217 speeding ticket. I don't get it.

3. How are all of the extremely young couples on House Hunters able to afford $750,000 homes? Makes for great television but... I don't get it.

4. Speaking of television, how is The View still on the air? And who the hell is Wendy Williams? I don't get it.

5. My stomach keeps growing and I'm not pregnant. I'm going to start featuring weekly "bump pictures" on the blog. Unfortunately, I don't have an expected due date so I'm not sure how to label them. It might look suspicious when I reach 47 weeks and am still growing. What's going on, stomach? I don't get it.

5. How am I 27-years-old and just now learning about gummy multi-vitamins for adults? Are they new? The way I see it, there is nothing better than taking two great things and throwing them together. Why yes I'll have my Vitamin C in gummy form, thank you! I'm glad I didn't know about these in college, I might have overdosed on vitamins after a long night out. But really, these things should have been created years ago. I don't get it.

So there's a small sampling of my latest "I don't get it" moments. I'm hoping at least one of you nodded in agreement with me, otherwise I really am an idiot. Yikes.

I nodded along in agreement. Some times I get a headache from all the head shaking and muttering. My question that often follows "I don't get it" is "What is wrong with people?"

Kaitlin said...

haha, I totally agree with ALL of these! Regarding #3, Stephen and I ask the same question every time we watch, "What the heck do those people do???" And the vitamins- I swear the gummy multi vitamins are new! I most certainly would have purchased them in college, esp b/c I took Viactiv chews daily as though they were candy!

yes the gummies are new! i have forever taken the children's gummies (yes, even when i'm pregnant cause pre-natals made me sick first trimester), and i honestly think i may have been the first one to buy them when they came out b/c i am FOREVER scouting for them and wondering why they hadn't been made before now. Thrilling. I understand.

Yes, the gummies are new. I found them when the prenatal ones made me sick when I was pregnant with Cade. So yummy!

There was some definite nodding in agreement the whole way.. until I got to the gummy vitamins and said "WHAT? I need these!" So now I shall figure out where I can obtain this magic gems b/c um.. I love anything gummy and not horse pills. (why are they called horse pills anyway? Who came up with that?)

Thanks for the tips on the hair! I want to try it! I'm not brave enough to do it before an event and I'm too lazy to try it before work.. so likely this weekend some part of the afternoon or something.. haha.. where no one can see if I mess up!

And yeah, I wouldnt know how to explain the job either from the title.. haha.. but still awesome sauce!

Ashley said...

Hahaha, this was funny :) I am SO with you guys on the House Hunters thing. I don't even like to watch it becuase these 20 year olds are buying these ridiculous homes! I don't get it either. They should at least tell us what these people do for a living.

Julie Caroline said...

ha! Couldn't agree more about Wendy Williams. I have no idea when her show is on but I sure do love The Soup's clips from it.

The Emerson's said...
