So I decided to scrap the plans to exercise my body, and give my brain a workout instead. Here are just some random thoughts on a rainy Tuesday…
I never understood how Y could be both a consonant and a vowel. Did whoever invented the English language and our Alphabet just get lazy? Weren’t there already enough words that sounded the same or looked like they should be pronounced a totally different way? Did they really have to throw this curve at us as well?
How do the other letters treat Y? Do the consonants and the vowels both embrace Y? Is Y seen as a consonant that’s vowel curious? Are the vowels wary of Y, thinking of it is a double agent sent by the consonants to spy on them and plan their annihilation?
Does Y have identity issues. Does it ever just ask “Why was I born this way?”
If Dinosaurs really did still roam the Earth as Jurassic World has led us to ponder, what would they think of our fossil fuel program? Do you think Dinosaurs would demand reparations for what we’ve done with the remains of their ancestors?
How do you think Dinosaurs would react when they went to a museum and saw a giant Dinosaur skeleton on display? Would they watch the Jurassic Park movies and think of them as horror flicks or outrageous comedies?
If you showed up at work and your new coworker was a Dinosaur, would you welcome him with open arms, invite him to lunch, and help him get acclimated to the office? Or would you be totally freaked out, avoid him at all cost, and write emails to HR about how you felt your life was in danger?
When Little Orphan Annie sang that the Sun would come out on the following day, was she being ironic, or did she really think the Sun vanished every night and there was a chance it would not return?
Does that song speak volumes about the need to better educate our orphans, or is there a chance that Annie was part of a doomsday cult that believed the Sun would one day abandon us and all life would end?
When it rains, are the clouds crying or sweating on us? Either way, it’s terribly disturbing.
Are Angels required to take up the harp, or can they learn another musical instrument if they so desire?
In Washington and Colorado, the Department of Transportation could legally fill potholes with pot if they so desired.
Today is the first day of the rest of my life unless I time travel someday.
If a family in China has hamburgers and fries for dinner, doesn’t that literally make that meal Chinese food?
Wow. That was some mental workout. Thanks for joining me in the Deep Thought gym, Modern Philosophers. Hopefully, I don’t get brain cramps later in the day…
