Wonder Why That Is...?
Now days, things are making me wonder more and more!
Now I know that I'm getting older, and I may be just a little out of touch...but every day I find something that I just really don't understand.
For instance, why do some men spend so much time getting a haircut to look good...then comb their hair peaked up on the top of their head so they look like Woody Woodpecker?
Why would some men start to let their beard grow...then keep it neatly trimmed in a permanent 5:00 shadow length? Grow the beard or shave, for goodness sake!
Why is it that somethings that were wrong by all standards to even talk about a few years ago...like phone sex, are now being shown as commercials on television?
Why is it that some of the most watched shows on television today are about such unpleasant things like parking tickets, getting speeding tickets, compulsive hoarders of trash and junk, people with addictions being forced into interventions, folks facing repossessions, all this kind of fun stuff?
Why is it that I daily get bombarded with ads trying to sell me products like Viagra, condoms, KY Jelly, and all manner of things like this? Do I fall into a special age group that somehow turns into sex maniacs who are physically unable to perform for some reason?
I'm sure that there are good reasons for this stuff, but for the life of me I can't figure out what it is! Just like I can't figure out why a video of young girls in various stages of nudity making out with one another is so popular!
I luckily am old enough to remember when most of the folks I knew had a totally different set of moral values. I'm not saying things didn't go on...but it just wasn't acceptable to make it public!
How many of my friends were into that sort of thing? I'll never know, because we just didn't talk about it! Now, I'm not a prude...but I still do believe that somethings are better off behind closed doors, so to speak!
Told ya I was old and out of touch, but you know what? I like it better that way!
Now, what say we get some fresh coffee and sit in the kitchen for a bit?
