Silly Stuff I Know...

What is the silly stuff you know? Do you know why tennis balls are fuzzy? If they weren't the game would be impossible to play. The ball if it were only rubber (without the fabric), would never stay on the court. See what I mean?

I'm one of those people who love to use silly stuff to start up conversations and get to know people. You might think this is useless space being used in my brain, not so. I've won many a prize, large and small with this "useless" information. Tell me this, why do cowboys wear their pants too long? Or one of my favorites, why do all children only want to eat bland or simple tasting foods? I'll give you the answers on Wednesday. In the meantime, post a question or little known fact back to me, I'd love to learn what you know!

I've got a question for you? why do we use the phrase for good luck, "I'll keep my fingers crossed"?

Crossing anything is suppose to ward off evil spirits.

Hi Sandy, I'll look that up and see if I can find the origin. I can tell you this as a funny side-bar, in Vietnam, crossingyour fingers and holding them up at someone is like flippig the bird here in the US.
