Today's prompt: Things that make you go, "Hmmm...." and if you need a refresher, a list of the prompts can be found here. We're almost done! I don't know what I'm going to do in August... I won't have this challenge to force me into blogging every day so chances are pretty good I might go back to my usually 2 or 3 times a week posts. But anyway let's not talk about the future right now and let's just stay in the nice comfortable present and go with all the "Hmmmm's."
-Ok probably the thing I question and don't understand most often is this: How am I not bald??? I ask this most often when I'm in the bathroom and see hair covering the counter and the floor, and in the shower when I run the conditioner through my hair and pull so much out. I know it's normal for strands of hair to come out of your head during the day, but like, there is SO MUCH HAIR in my bathroom. And in my car. When I was in that wedding in May I drove some of the girls to get Starbucks on the morning of the wedding and one of the girls said, "Juliette, do you have a dog?" And I was like, "Uh, no... why?" And she got all uncomfortable and I could tell she wanted to just drop it but I have this problem where I don't let things go, so finally she said, "Well, it's just that there's a lot of hair in your car." And then when I was looking for a gas station she said, "Oh, you could go to that gas station because they have a car wash!" And I looked at her very seriously and said, "Um, what are you trying to tell me?" But she couldn't tell that I was just joking and she got really uncomfortable and then I turned the radio on really loud. Wow, hi there tangent, didn't see you there.
- How is my niece SO freaking adorable?

-Who was the first person to look at a chicken and think, "Yep, I'm gonna eat the next thing that comes out of that animal's butt." ??
-What exactly was wrong with my shneck? By the time I went to the doctor it wasn't hurting anymore but I figured better safe than sorry, so I shelled out $60 for him to say, "Well, it looks fine now. It was probably tendinitis but there's nothing to do now so if it hurts again just call and we'll try to get you in a little sooner." Aw how sweet, you'll try to not make me wait a month for an appointment? Such a gem, you are. But last night in softball I got beaned in that shoulder by the ball so maybe that will make my random phantom injury occur again. Who knows.
-Why are we having so much humidity here??? Last night at that softball game I felt like I was swimming. There was sweat everywhere and my pants kept slipping and when I'd pull them up I kept giving myself a wedgie and I'm blaming the humidity for everything. I mean, yeah it's only like 53% but we're spoiled here and when you're used to 0% humidity anything above that feels like cruel and unusual punishment.
-Any time I think about like, math or chemistry or biology or physics or the stock market I always glaze and say, "Hmmmm?" so there's that.
-Do people actually think platform sneakers are a good look? Hmmm?
-This Google Glass business... who is using this, hmmm? And why exactly is it useful? Because I feel like it mostly just makes people look like big ol' bags o' douchery.
-Yesterday I read an article about people who are going to take a one way trip to Mars and see if it could ever be an inhabitable environment (at least that's what I got from it, maybe I'm wrong, who really knows). Space freaked me out even before Gravity came out, and I cannot understand why people would want to be like, "So long, peace out earth, I'm gonna go try and live on the Red Planet and it probably won't work out but I'm never ever ever ever ever coming back because the technology to bring me back does not exist." Although I guess maybe an argument could be made that the limit to which they are willing to go in the name of science does not exist... whatever. I still say, "Hmmm?" and plan on staying on earth.
That's all for now. Catch ya on the flippity flip.
