Too much time to think

So, I was recently off work for 30+ days, recovering from knee surgery.  I figured I would have plenty of time to read a few books, work on my stamp collection and watch a few TV programs I had heard good things about but had never seen. But between physical therapy and dealing with pain, I found there was less free time than I thought.

However, I did find some time to think about many of life’s unanswered questions.  Here’s a few of them.  Let me know if you have any answers to them.

Why do the days of the week end in “y”?

How do you throw away a garbage can?

Why are things typed up but written down?

How can you hear yourself think?

If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares, why is there a song about him?

Why do drugstores make sick people walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions, while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front of the store?

What was the best thing before sliced bread?

Why sterilize needles for lethal injections?

If all the world is a stage, where is the audience sitting?

Why do grocery stores buy so many checkout line registers if they only keep 3 or 4 open?

How can weather be hot as hell one day and cold as hell another?

And last but not least:  What if the hokey-pokey is what it’s all about?
