Do small children have a sensor, similar to that of wild animals who can sense fear, that lets them know when you are bored stiff with reading a particular story and therefore causes them to clamor for it over and over?

What is the use of baby bathrobes, except for taking cute pictures? If a child is dried off, who would delay the diaper? And once you have the diaper on, why not just put on the pajamas rather than leave the child to get tangled in a robe? (And why can't I bear to part with any of the cute baby bathrobes that have fallen into my hands, even though I know I never use them?)

Why do they put lights in the restrooms of public places that make you look as if you had an advanced case of leprosy? Do they want to scare you back into your hole so you never come out in public again?

Blog entries two days in a row - is this a sign of better days on the near horizon?

Oh, and no answers for your very good questions.

I was browsing the web in search of the names of the different types of carrots I bought this morning in my local market in Paris, and found your blog. Maybe you can help? My pictures are at http://aworldinapan.blogspot.com

Not only do they have "tired of this book" sensors, they also come equipped with "can't stand this song" sensors.

In fact, the very latest models will automatically begin to sing "This is the Song that Never Ends" whenever they are exposed to light!

Yeah, you told me the bathrobe woudl be pointless and it is! But it's SO ADORABLY CUTE that I saved it for the next one. =X

Well, YOU have the advantage of actually taking the cute pictures. :-)
