Yes, I have been missing quite a few of these lately.
It's late tonight.
But, I couldn't get on earlier.
This weeks Ten Things Tuesday is about things that really have no rhyme or reason.
They are just there.
1. The many checkouts at Walmart
The store's packed. People balls deep in every checkout line. How many lines are open? 5. If you are lucky. All those extra registers? They're just fer lookin' at.
2. Fireworks in Iowa
You are probably thinking you look at them everywhere. True. But, in other places you can shoot them off and look. Not so in Iowa. You can legally cross the border into Missouri or South Dakota, or well anywhere and buy the fireworks. You can legally bring them back. You just can't legally have fun with them. That big box of 1000 Saturn missiles? They're just fer lookin' at.
3. Little dogs
Not poodles or schnauzers. Those are what I call yippy dogs. I mean dogs that are so little people carry them around in purses Hilton style. Their whole purpose is to sit and look as cute as they can. Yep. They're just fer lookin' at.
4. My swimsuit
I am not much of a swimmer. But, the last vacation we took involved a water park so I needed new swimwear. I wore it for that vacation. Now, it sits in my drawer and when I get clothes out I see it. It's just fer lookin' at.
5. Boot Hill
I don't have a picture or anything. Many years ago out near my hometown, people started nailing boots and shoes to a telephone pole. With a sign for Boot Hill. No reason. Just fer lookin' at.
6. Stuffed animals
Not the toys. I mean actual taxidermy stuffed fish and birds and deer and bear.
I have some in my house. I really don't see the point. That is what pictures are for. And it's cheaper to take one than to get a fish mounted just so you can look at it.
7. Justin Bieber
This one comes from my daughter. I have to say though that I do find it amusing that he walks into glass doors and windows an awful lot. Plus, without him there would be no lesbians that look like Justin Bieber website. I guess he is just fer lookin' at. And laughing.
8. Monster trucks
I think they are pretty stupid looking and due to the overly large tires, they don't really work as well as they were meant. But, some weirdos think they are cool to look at and I guess that is all that matters.
AKA cicadas. I am not sure they are even for looking at. They irritate me with their noise and their outer shell is hideous. Once they come out they aren't so bad. I guess. They are a bug.
10. Fake fruit
Who invented this? Why? To look pretty? Really? O. K.
