The unanswerable questions...

Does God have boogers?

I don't know. I'll ask Kelly. I bet her husband knows stuff like that.

Why don't we have three moons?

I don't know.

Do cats think?

I really don't know.

If I curse in my head, does that count?

Well, I'll have to think about that one.

Why don't crickets make noise in the winter?

Because they're sleeping.

If plants like to listen to music, where are their ears?

They're invisible.

Why do Mommy and Daddy always close the door to talk about grown up stuff?

I have no idea. Why don't you ask them? I would be interested in that answer, too.

Who made up dumb stuff like math?

I don't know. Probably the same people who made up dumb stuff like allowances.

Why don't grown up people run around outside and play like kids do?

Probably because they're too tired after working all day.

How come it's okay for the fish to pee in the ocean, but it's not okay for me to pee in the ocean.

Cause if you pee in the ocean, you'll make the fish sick.

Are the people on the other side of the world upside down?

I don't know. I'll ask Amarinda. She knows everything.

When you turn off the TV, what happens to the people in the box?

They get on their spaceship and go home.


Amarinda left us in a quandry as usual. Max wants to have a baby...

“I don’t care what the council says. People have had babies in the past.” Max pointed out.

She backed away from him. “The past is just that. There are to be no more babies.” Crazy talk like that would get them killed.

“Mistakes can happen.”

“I am not having sex with you Max.” Gabrielle was adamant.

“Why not?”

Because it took me too damn long to harden my heart to you. No, he could never know that. “There is someone else,” she lied.

So, as usual, I tidied up a bit...

Leo stomped over to the armoire and pulled out a pair of jeans. “Any news?” he asked as he jerked on the pants and turned to flip through the t-shirts.

“PJ just landed. I expect that she’s still looking to get a piece of your tail.” Sam yawned and blinked. “Hmmm. Max wants Gabrielle to have a baby.”

“Fat chance.” Leo yanked a purple t-shirt over his head. “Gabrielle isn’t going to let him get that close. Bet you ten dollars that she tells him there’s another man.”

“No bet. However, if you want to bet on whether PJ gets her piece of tail, I’ll take some of that action.”

Leo frowned at him, but shrugged. “No bet on that either. Look, I’ve got to let the Blogga Saga ladies know what the latest is. Any other news I should pass along?”

“Yeah, tell them Emmeline is plotting her return. And Zoltan is going to help her. And the hamsters are staging a revolt on Nebulon Six. Bad stuff going on there. They have Rinalda and the gnomes tied up and they’re threatening to bring back the zucchini zuukers if Emmeline doesn’t surrender her peeler.” Sam tapped the purple box. “Good thing I have Rafe and Shade and Jonas safe in the box. That Beaky fellow was a bit quick on the trigger.”

Sighing, Leo went to turn on his computer. “Sam, why don’t you just cross that damned peeler out?”

“I tried. But it just pops back up like one of those magic candles…” His eyes met Leo’s. “Magic. Why didn’t I think of that? We have to find Zoltan and worm the secret out of him.”

What will Kelly do? Please check her blog at www.kkirch.blogspot.com to find out. And then pop on over to Amarinda's house at www.amarindajones.blogspot.com to see what she's up to. Then? Have a wonderful day.


  1. No we are right side up, attractive, witty, smart and good at everything. Does that answer the question?

    My personal favourite - how long is a piece of string?

  2. Oi! What's this 'I tidied up a bit' thing? Jeeze who do you think you are? Me?

  3. Mommy and Dadddy close the door for adult discussion cause their having big bad sex.

    I haven't asked Scott, but his take on poop is that it is a direct result of sin (I disagree. There is nothing sinful about expelling waste byproduct from nutrients... but if I can remind you, Martin Luther used to fart violently at the devil to keep him away) and therefore as boogers are jail cells for bacteria, my guess is Scott would think bacteria is sinful too. Hence, God as no boogers.

    My question: Why don't mosquitos come out in full daylight, fly into the atmosphere seeking that giant ball sun and then die? And on the same line, what purpose do mosquitos have and why did God create them?

  4. Ever see Lilo and Stitch, Kelly? Ha ha...

    My question: If a child takes off his or her socks and shoes, why it it, 12 hours later, all four items are scattered in 4 entirely different places? I tke mine off and they all stay together...

  5. We have mosquitos to feed the birds, bats, and fish, and to pollinate flowers.

    They've got to eat something. But maybe cows go around asking, "What purpose do people have, and why did God create them?"

    Speaking of God and creation, here's my unanswerable quetion: Why did God give women periods (and more importantly, the cramps and PMS that go along with them), but nothing equivalently irritating to men?

  6. Oh, I think that's because he figured we could irritate them enough without his help...

  7. I can give you a definitive yes on the cats thinking quandry. Mine are insulted that you needed to ask!
