The word wonder

I wonder sometimes -

if wire hangers grow? I know this is not an original thought, who has time for those?
I, similar to Joan Crawford, yet without the cheekbones, hate wire hangers. I despise pulling them out from the depths of my wardrobe as they twist themselves lovingly onto other wire hangers, thus breeding several  that you will find the next week.What I dislike even more than wire hangers, is that sometimes I use them! Why? Why do I think they can suddenly take the weight of my trousers? As soon as you hang anything onto them, they squeal in pain and dip under the pressure. "No, don't use me, I'm just a wire hanger. I hang here to annoy or spoil shoulders occasionally."

I wonder why -
saving my precious CVS reward points for a dark under eye concealer and buying it happily on Saturday - did I find tonight the very same concealer I had obviously bought the other month and had not tried yet. Am I now so rich, that I like to use a different one for each eye?
The first person to leave a comment will win the second concealer.  It's a good one. Not to be missed. I have been told that pandas use this concealer to escape from the zoo for a social night out.

I wonder who created -
Style Snaps. An amazing device I watched on TV about snappers that you can use for hemming trousers. No sewing, no Velcro and you can remove them easily to use again again. I was in awe. What a great idea.
I cannot sew a mouth shut, and have reluctantly not bought trousers that have been too long for me. NOw I can. I'm so excited and cannot wait to find them on the TV aisle in CVS. I never purchase direct from the TV, even though I miss out on the opportunity of receiving one thousand Style Snaps for the price of $19.99 plus postage and shipping.

I wonder optimstically -
if Style Snaps will find this posting, see it as great publicity and send a bundle to me for free. - just in case!

I wonder -
am I the only person who imagines the security bell will go off EVERY SINGLE time I leave a store.

I wonder -
was I a thief in a previous life, due to the above wondering.

I wonder -
when I will start doing instead of wondering. When I will receive that confidence to kick myself to focus on what I truly want, rather than what I hide behind.

Then sometimes, I realize I need to stop wondering, as Japan is an example of having to do in order to survive. I catch myself as I slip into the victim mode and realize I have nothing to wonder about.
We are so fortunate and should never take that for granted.


  1. I really hope that The Style Snaps people step up and honor your fabulously free advertising!

  2. Really! You are going to give Jen the concealer?!


For my Universe

I have had so many thoughts recently for blog posts that could be inspiring for those around me, and yet I can never quite find the words. M...
