Odd things we say
Just saw the post about Canadian Geese in New Zealand and got to thinking (yup, again).
What are some of the odd things we do and say and why do we say and do them???
I've long wondered about what "in front of my back" really means. Isn't my front, in front of my back? If someone does something behind me it should be "in back of my back"
He's something else, nearly on a different subject. At work (this is for real, I could post a picture to prove it), there is a one-way dead end street. First time I saw it I couldn't believe it existed, thought only Steven Wright would consider such a thing.
Here's a special for Len.... How about that "unthaw" ritual folks do up there in the Wisconsin northwoods??? My in-laws are nearly always unthawing something or other! (Safety tip... don't try to correct them or question this practice, just accept that it happens.)
Why do you put your left shoe on first??
Why are womens buttons and zippers "backwards"?
Who has ever used those two extra buttons on the bottom of the shirt??? Why do shirt manufacturers feel the need to get rid of buttons so badly they'll put extra on even though no one ever uses them. (The nut and bolt folks need to take lessons from the shirt people, I'm always short a nut or bolt (be careful, I heard that "screw loose" comment!).
How long does it take before we cut ourselves playing with our new knives even though we know better, and why do we do that?? (Thanks again Petander, that was a sharp knife, shoulda come with a warning label [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img])
Someone elses turn.
