Why? An Observation and an Opinion

by VJ Miller, Sr.

Why do people ask questions they don’t want answers too?

I’ve been to all kinds of forums where members can post their writing or artwork or pictures, even music. They ask the membership for critiques and when those assessments roll in, and if they aren’t favorable they become defensive and reply, “How dare you…” or words to that effect.

I discount the sadistic types who just like to bash everyone’s work. They’re evil incarnate. But why jump all over the honest person who feels you need a serious edit of your stuff? That’s why you asked for the critique in the first place; to make your stuff better than it was. And why belittle the person who just wants to help with an asinine “doh!”  Homer’s become a part of our everyday language. How droll; how sad for all of us?

Why do women who complain about men staring at their breasts wear a T-shirt with several lines of type emblazoned on it?

This always confounds me. They place a novella on their chest and you have to walk by them several times to get to the punch line or in desperation, stop them and hold them still till you can finish the prose. And they have the nerve to complain. God help us should they start producing those shirts in braille.

Why do women who say they only want a nice guy run off with bad boys?

I’m a firm believer that women only want bad boys no matter what they say to the contrary. They must equate nice guy with dull or a loser. Bad boys are unpredictable: they lie, cheat, bend the law, make women feel like property and ultimately break their hearts. Do they think they can tame him? Get real. Ain’t gonna happen. If it’s just the thrill they get out of it, it’d be safer psychologically if they stood up while riding a roller coaster. And if they did tame the guy then they wouldn’t want him because he’s changed too much. Go figure.

Why do men who dump women get jealous when they find new boyfriends?

Let it go Ace! You cut her loose so you could explore new territory; let her do the same. If you want more than one woman in reserve all I can say to you is move to Utah.


If soft chewy cookies turn hard when you leave them out to go stale and hard cookies turn soft, why don’t they revert to their original state if you leave them out longer?

That’s my opinion.

Have a great day.

  1. Yep, in the days of strict feminism the writing on a ladies t-shirt confounds me. As an avid daily reader I am immediately drawn to the words, sometimes I do not even see what is behind them. If they don’t want us to look leave it blank, unless of course they are so monstrous that you have to sneak a peak.
