I Wonder Why?

I Wonder Why?

Have you ever wondered why we sometimes say, “Bye Bye” after a conversation? Why say it twice? Doesn’t the one “Bye” get the job done?

Why do some people call a soft drink a “soda” while others call it a “pop”? You also have the ones who call it a “soda pop” and regardless of what kind it is, all of them are to some, “colas”.

Sometimes I feel old before my time. Especially when I sub at the elementary school. I will tell the kids to get ready to go home and get their “book bags” and they look at me like I have 2 heads. They are now, strictly, “back packs”.

Many times I find myself in a rut in a phone conversation, while listening to the other person on the line. This will be my side of the convo: “Oh, really? UmHummm… Yeah… Exactly… I know what you mean…. yeah….. yep, yep…. EXACTLY! … umhumm… I know…. yes…” etc. Why am I at a loss for words?

Why is it that when you load the trash up and take it out, within an hour, the trash can is full again?

Why is it that when you buy your child a pair of shoes that fit perfect when you buy them, and within a couple of weeks, they are too tight for them to wear?

Have you ever wondered why after a month of planning for your child to have a “Toy Story” birthday cake, they suddenly have lost interest and decide that they want “Mario” instead?

Why one day, your child absolutely loves chili and when you make it for them, they refuse to eat it because you ran out of hotdogs.

Why? Some things are because “life happens”. Others, we will never know.
