Why do I do this?

I had to laugh at myself this morning as I began to read through the obituaries in today's paper. I remembered George Burns saying that he looked for his name every day in the obits just to make sure that he was still alive.

I not only look through them, but, I check out the ages and/or why the person died.

Why do I do this?


Also, in today's paper there was a listing of all of the people in my county who were delinquent in paying their property taxes. Even though I knew that I had paid my taxes several weeks earlier than they were due....I went searching for my name...AND, as if that weren't bad enough....friend's names!

Why did I do this?


My "Why?" list could go on and on.........reading blogs and Facebook updates several times a day when I have so many other things that I need to be doing..........buying M and M's to use in cookies but opening the bag for "just a couple".........and then eating the entire contents by the end of the week.........looking up any symptoms that I (or a friend) might have on the many online medical sites...and getting concerned that it might be something serious....or, even worse, starting to get some of the other symptoms that are listed..........getting so wrapped up in my reality shows that I am sometimes fuzzy on where their lives end and mine begins..........slathering my face with "age-defying" creams in hopes of eventually looking like the young (very young) models hawking the products........making lists, but forgetting to look at them....etc. etc.


Why do I do all of these things? Why?! And, I the only one ???

C'mon, fess up! : )

Ha Ha - I read the Dear Amy column, who know why? I like to try and guess her answer and then I argue with it. What a waste of time! TN said...

Why do I want to lose 20 pounds. I know I won't look or feel the same as I did when I was 20. LOL
