Why do/does...

  1. Tim Hortons workers look at me like I have two heads when I say that, in fact, it isn't ok if they substitute a white bun for the whole wheat I ordered?
  2. I feel it necessary to say "Bless You" when people sneeze, when, really, I have no authority to bless anyone?
  3. my husband think that "macaroni salad" is the same thing as "cold orzo and snow pea salad."
  4. I feel it necessary to make lists all the time?
  5. some people give so much unsolicited advice? If you're on the receiving end, can you offer back unsolicited advice, such as, "don't give unsolicited advice. People don't like it."?

I could give you a list of unsolicited advice (as an Old Man, I'm officially allowed to do that). However, I think I'll settle for answering your questions.

1. Because, unbeknownst to you, a second cranium does start to bulge out of your neck when you say that. It isn't technically a head, but one day, it will be. Then you'll be sorry, missy. Either that, or he thinks you have gas.

2. I believe that this has something to do with karma. You were a priest or a witchdoctor in a past life, and wandered around blessing people, and the habit has carried on through death and rebirth. Or it might merely be gas.

3. Hey, it's cold gooey stuff with green stuff in it. That makes it a 'salad'. Functional equivalence and all that. Or possibly because that pasta crap gives him gas.

4. Gas, no question.

5. Because, deep down, they think they know better than you. Here's some free unsolicited advice, though: they usually don't. And they may be suffering from gas.

Heh heh heh. You're right. It's likely gas.

I still haven't got the hang of ordering coffee at Tim Hortons. Boy do I love their coffee and last time I thought I had the native lingo down. I walked up and asked for a "2 and 2 coffee". Tim Hortons girl looks at me like I just said no to substituting white for whole wheat bun, "You mean a double double?"

Er, yea...eh.

I thought orzo was greet for macaroni. So that's wrong I guess.

A friend of mine didn't like blessing people so he changed to "gesundheit" as it's less preachy.
