Have you ever noticed...?

A few things that puzzle me...but then again, completely make sense:

* Traffic always seems to be going slowly in the direction you're headed. The oncoming cars are zipping by, and you just know they're laughing at you, saying, "Suckers!" I know I do that on the rare occasion I'm the lucky girl on the fast side of the road.

* There are probably fifty shirts in my closet, but when I browse through my pictures on Facebook or my blog, I'm wearing the same two or three shirts over and over again. And they're not fancy or why do I wear them so much?

* I find that even if I haven't done anything productive at work, I get home and I'm exhausted. And yet, I know some people who actually have jobs where they have to be up and about, and they've got energy up the wazoo!

* Any email I get gives me a sense of excitement. OooooOOOOoooh, what is this? A shipping notification! Score!

* I can smile normally until it comes time to have my picture taken. I don't work well under pressure!

* No matter what, I always run out of conditioner before shampoo. I even make a concerted effort to use the same amount of each. Does conditioner evaporate from the bottle faster...? I have no other explanation.

* The older I get, the more motion sick I get. Just riding on the train, I start to feel a little queasy. And this is from the child who could ride amusement park rides all day and be ready for more! I can't even spend a few hours at Lagoon without a pill in me now.

* Watching videos at work is way more appealing than sitting at home browsing YouTube. At least then you can get everyone to slack with you for a minute and all of you can giggle together.

* When you're doing an impression of yourself, you don't just use your normal gets all weird and different. Shouldn't it be the same if you're...imitating yourself...?

* I do some of the very things that I mock or that frustrate me. The other night, we were watching multiple cars trying to parallel park in a spot that was just too small. And yet, if it were me, I'd probably do it.

Um - I find that the shampoo goes way faster than the conditioner. In fact, I average two bottles of shampoo to every one bottle of conditioner. So I guess there goes the evaporation theory. Perhaps we should look at it this way - my hair is cleaner, but your hair is WAY more silky!
