A large part of my life has been spent in trying to answer difficult questions; questions that would give me direction, truth, finality. I admit many of those questions have never been answered to my satisfaction. I think I could let a coin toss be the truth that I take to my grave. There are some things that are beyond my mind’s ability to answer one way or the other. Maybe you can help me make the right choice. I’ll give you a few to ponder today. Maybe it will take your mind off the senseless murdering violence that has no solutions. Please don’t think about these things while you’re driving; it’s as dangerous as texting.
#1) Which one is the coolest, the ’55 or the ’57 Chevy? I’ve usually gone for the ’55 but every time I see another ’57, my head spins.
#2) Let’s get the sexist gender thing out of the way right here. Blonde, Brunette or Redhead? My first love was a Redhead, then a few blondes stole my heart but right now a brunette has full control. What do you think?
#3) If you’re buying me a beer, I hope it’s not a Bud, Miller or a Coors. But should it be a Pilsner, Pale Ale, Stout or a Porter. I usually prefer a Pale Ale, but should it be Sierra Nevada, Stone, Lengthwise Centennial, Flying Dog, Sam Adams, Lagunitas, or what? Very hard to decide. I don’t even want to start on Tequilas, Bourbons, Gins or Vodkas.
#4) Here is a real tough one. What kind of music should I listen too? I like all kinds, if its good stuff, but the country sounds are usually last choice. Driving presents the hardest choices. I know driving along PCH in SoCal usually calls for Classic Rock. Driving in the morning is usually Classical music. Driving in San Francisco is usually Jazz. Do you just do one kind of music all the time? I have a hard time choosing. I guarantee I never tune to “idiot talk” radio.
Other questions to ponder:
How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you really were?
How come the things that make my happy don’t make everyone else happy?
If you’re standing at a crosswalk or getting on an elevator, do you push the button more than once, and do you think that makes the light switch faster and the elevator door close quicker?
