After my grandmother passed I was given some of her books. I found a piece of paper dated January, 2004, with the following questions.
Ask Yourself These Questions?
1.) Does a clean house indicate that there is a broken computer in it?
2.) Why is it that no matter what color of bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?
3.) Is there ever a day when mattresses are NOT on sale?
4.) Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with the hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?
5.) On electric toasters, why do they engrave the message 'one slice'? How many pieces of bread do they think people are really gonna try to stuff in that slot?
6.) Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give their vacuum one more chance?
7.) Why is it that no plastic garbage bag will open from the end you first try?
8.) How do those dead bugs get into closed light fixtures?
9.) Considering all the lint you get in your dryer, if you kept drying your clothes would they eventually just disappear?
10.) When we are in the supermarket and someone rams our ankle with a shopping art then apologizes for doing so, why do we say, "It's all right." It isn't all right, so why don't we say, "That hurt, you stupid idiot!"
11.) Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that's falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over?
12.) Is it true that the only difference between a yard sale and a trash pickup is how close to the road the stuff is placed?
13.) In winter, why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?
14.) How come we never hear any father-in-law jokes?
15.) If at first you don't succeed, shouldn't you try doing it like your wife told you to in the first place?
