Things I Don’t Get

  1. Why my kids insist on watching Christmas sing-a-long videos in the middle of August. Seriously. I guess they come by it honest.
  2. Why my wife is obsessed with Jon and Kate + 8. Can someone please explain the appeal of this show to me? After wrestling with our kids all day long — after fixing all the meals, refereeing all the fights, changing all the diapers, cleaning up all the messes, etc. — my wife will rush to the DVR to watch a 30-minute episode of people doing the exact same thing. It’d be like me watching a show about a guy putting together a sermon. I don’t get it.
  3. The big sunglasses trend. Most women’s sunglasses these days could pass for welding masks. What’s with the massive, Liz Taylor shades?
  4. How is this Michael Phelps guy this good? Rootin’ for you tonight, kid.
  5. While I’m at it, I don’t get anything that comes out of this guy’s mouth.
  6. Why is this news? It’s a bear suit stuffed in a freezer; why are we talking about it? (Finder’s fee goes to Trey on this one.) Incidentally, my Dad would’ve loved this kind of thing.
  7. Fashion.
  8. Why is the Civil Forum on the Presidency at Saddleback airing opposite of the Olympics? Couldn’t we have done this a couple of weeks ago? Thank goodness for the DVR.
  9. Preseason college football rankings. What’s the criteria here? Didn’t we learn anything last year (ahem, Michigan?). I know all you Auburn fans are with me, right?
  10. Why the Cards continue to keep Adam Wainwright on assignment in the minors. We could use him right now, Mozeliak. It’s not like we’re fighting for a playoff spot or anything!

    Not only does Kristen watch Jon and Kate, but she watches the same episodes over and over again.And I’m with you on the sunglasses thing. they indeed are rather ridiculous. And, swimming has never been so exciting.
