"q" is for...

I've never been one to really appreciate a challenge - some strive on them, others cower. And this blasted alphabet game has certainly been a challenge. The lady that so intuitively read my face back in February did point out that I enjoy starting a task but don't really like to finish. I guess she was right.

But, in an effort to prove her wrong, I'll press on. Seriously, what words start with "Q"? I mean, there's the standard quiet, quick or quality (Creed had a hard time with that one last night). My buddy Beth W just informed me of a makeshift quarantine going on in Greenwood in order to prevent the spread of the almighty stomach bug. I'd rather not spend a lot of time on something that horrifies me so. She also suggested Q-tip, which I used this morning, but I couldn't imagine an entire post dedicated to the name-brand cotton swab.

Instead, I decided to focus on something that plagues us all. They keep us up at night, they're peppered in every conversation we carry, and they're the reason we all go to school. We encounter them all day, every day, in every form of communication. They can be good, bad, stupid, short, long, intelligent or inappropriate. Whether silly or serious, we've all got questions that follow us around. Some get answered quickly, but many nag us from the back corners of our minds. Here are a few of mine...

Why do bad things happen to good people?
If I were famous in Hollywood, who would be my famous friends?
How come some people can eat anything they want all day and not gain and ounce, and others can't?
Can my dogs understand me?
Will 94.7 Jack FM EVER call me about the Jack Jackpot?
Is there something out there that I am a "natural" at that I haven't discovered yet?
What really happened to Natalie Holloway and Jon Benet Ramsey?
If I were a twin, which one would I be? (that one's for you, yaya)
What is Heaven like?
Do dreams really mean anything?
If I could change one thing about my looks, what would it be?
If I could change one thing about my past, what would it be?

What are you losing sleep over?

It used to be "If Dave Matthews met me, would he leave his wife to forever be mine?" (I believed he would with my whole heart, BTW)
