Reaching Beyond Myself

Various thoughts from my work week......

So I have successfully completed another week of work and I've come to ponder many things.....random and insignificant, but thoughts none-the-less.....

why is it when you walk into a women's bathroom and sit down next to someone who has also just entered that it's entirely impossible to pee?
am I the only one with this problem? pee-shyness?
Maybe it's the fact that 4 women at any given moment can all pee or poop at the same time, not to mention see who is inside the stall through the three inch gap between the hinge and the frame.......

There seem to be a lot of interracial couples here in our town, is it because Missouri is more accepting than Florida or Michigan? (personally I think it's a beautiful thing, unfortunately some close-minded people think otherwise)

There also seem to be more overweight and obese peole in the Midwest (as opposed to Florida) is it because the sun doesn't shine here as often?

What is it about the sunshine that makes people feel happy?

Who invented the "pod" or the "cubicle" They (along with the person who created the bra) need to be taken outside for bouts of public humiliation. Seriously, these people obvisiously were never constricted by aforementioned for a period of 8 hours or longer.

Who sets the national standard for poverty? I would like to have a sit-me-down session with that person, immediately!!

Why do churches (atleast in my experience) either try to fit into the "cool" mode of "cutting edge" OR you have to try to fit into the "clique"

Why do people on the East Coast seem rude and the Midwest hospitible? Does it have anything to do with time zones?

Why don't fast food chains invent a way to package ketchup like other dipping sauces? Seriously, do you know how much more convient this concept would be......

Is it ok to think your neighbor is a hottie, even if you're married?

Is it ok to be in your 30s and still have no clue about what you want to be when you grow up?

Why do my feet stink when I wear birks, but they don't in all other sandals?

just some randomness from inside the mind of a recently converted stay-at-home mom who just rejoined the work force crunching worries ;)

Man o Man Angie, waaay too many questions to answer tho I'm sure given enough time I can.
Suffice it to say that the further you get from either coast the more sanity you will find. Good luck with the all of this.

LOL, great answer Cliff on the Midwest. I'm thinking you are onto something ;)

- because as women, most of us have the tendency to care TOO MUCH about what other people think...

- there are interracial couples everywhere, but with Florida you have high Latino populations who are really steeped in their culture so they aren't likely to inter mingle... once you get away from the heaviness of culture however, that doesn't matter as much.

- no. it's not about sunshine. it's likely about money... People with less money eat worse...

- because churches are run by people. This is the goal for everything run by people. Be it a shop, school, corporation, etc... And thought clique's have no place in a church environment, they will always be there...

- Again it comes down to money. There is a lot of it on the East Coast... so for generations an air of arrogance has been passed alone and it eventually became the mentality of the area... The true midwest (NOT MICHIGAN) has a lineage based on farm workers and lower income. There is a humility there...

- great question about the ketchup...

- it is ok... because your relational status has NOTHING to do with his attractive appeal...

- because of the kind of leather that Birkenstock s are made of.

And that is my best effort to answer your questions :)

Well after Misty, what's left to say? :)

whoa myst,
GREAT insight!!!

I completely agree about your logic on everything actually.....especially the money and how it basically invades attitudes of different regions of the US.....crazy stuff

So many great questions! I, too, am public pee shy. And I am one of those chubby midwesterners. It's the fact that we can only go outside between April through October and spend the rest of the year trying to add an extra layer of fat to stay warmer. And we seem to be doing a good job of that! I'm sorry. I've got no other answers for you today.

Perhaps next time, Mandy and I will confer and delegate to whom each bullet point question shall be presented. :)

p.s. I tagged you!
