Funny Imponderable Questions

An article for those who have are suffering from a bad case of imponderable thinking.

Do you have one of life’s little questions going endlessly around and around in your head? Can’t find the answer? Then you have a severe case of the imponderable - but don’t fret, you are not alone.

So how do you cure such a sever and debilitating case, I hear you ask? Well, unfortunately there is no permanent cure - other than complacency. In which case the cure’s symptoms may well be worse than the disease from which those affected by the perplexity of pondering have descended into.

My recommendation would be a good dose of laughter – natures cure for most ailments. And what could be better than being able to laugh at the very same ponderous and puzzling mysteries that have so badly affected us both to-date. So let the anguish go – embrace the unknown – curiosity be dammed! That’s it! Chuckle your way through the conundrum. But be warned. The treatment can be fleeting. Earn a little respite and let the little questions in life go. Save your energy for life’s bigger questions, but most of all – have a little fun along the way.

Worried About The Words We Use?

Do you worry and fret over the everyday words we use and how we use them? Do they get under your skin? Here are few that used to bother me until I learned to "let it go".

1. How come abbreviated is such a long word?

Surely they could have come up with a shorter name for this?

2. If a word is misspelled in the dictionary, how would we ever know?

I pondered over this for quite some time - sad isn't it?

3. Why are there 5 syllables in the word "monosyllabic"?

I knew that I had a serious problem when I heard myself repeatedly sounding out the individual syllables in this word - just to check you understand - not for any other reason...

4. Why do we say something is out of whack? What exactly is a whack?
