Just wondering

If you were out choppin' cotton on this date, what, in all likelihood, would your brother be doing?

Which proves you are a Communist?

Caring about the Tour de France bike race?

Just wondering

Sizing things up

How big does a business have to be before people no longer assume that someone working there knows everyone else (in every department) employed by that enterprise?

And your little dog too

I have a question.

You know how you'll be ambling or rolling down the street and a poorly trained little dog being walked on a leash will hurl itself in your direction with all the ridiculous ferocity it can muster?

Sure. Happens with some regularity. The petite canine lunges with violent force and the person holding the leash pulls back as if trying to land a small marlin.

Well, here's what I wonder.

Why don't these dogs choke themselves into unconsciousness when doing this zero-to-60 routine?

Insufficient throw-weight? Rigid collars that don't cinch tightly around the neck?

If you have a theory, please share.

Just wondering

Have you seen any wasps yet?

Does it make you 10% better-looking?

To have a little redness in your face from being out in the sun over the weekend.

A) Yes. But maybe just 5%. B) I'm not 16. My mind doesn't work that way. C) I am not white so this isn't really applicable to me. D) Yes. It makes me look young and vital. E) Who cares?
