Admit it – we all have them. When we’re kids, we seem to vocalize every random question. I don’t know at what age we stop sharing them with other people.
I’m pretty sure we stop so that no one slaps us silly.
But, we all still have these random thoughts from time to time. I feel, strongly, that we can become closer to each other, as humans, when we share them.
Why? Because they leave us open. They leave us vulnerable.
Maybe other people will think our queries are obvious, shallow, shameful, or just plain weird.
So, sharing them can open us up to ridicule.
I don’t mind reveling in my “weird” here & having no one join in. Still, I hope that someone will see a “Random Question” post & say, “Hey! I wondered the same thing the other day.”
Then, I hope you’ll leave a comment!
As these questions are without rhyme or reason, the range of topics are limitless – Politics? Sexuality? Life? Health? Pets? The universe? Hobbies? Everything? Who knows! We go where the wind takes us!*
Hopefully, the questions will encourage discussion. I think it’s cool to debate & even disagree – But keep it CIVIL or keep it MOVING.
*If you have a question you’re itching to ask, please feel free! If you’re less willing to “let your freak flag fly” than I am, I’m sure we can make it anonymous!
Random Question #1:
Does anyone else notice that eyelashes are supposed to be there to protect our eyes from debris getting in them; however, the worst debris you ever get in your eyes is a freakin’ eyelash?
It’s like, c’mon eyelashes! You had one job!
Which, clearly, directs my mind to a secondary random question – What is the biological reasoning behind eyebrows?
(Side note: As I was flushing out this post, I got an eyelash stuck in my eye on two separate occasions. I thought it must have been a sign & I snapped a picture. Nope. No f—s given. 😊)
