Ten on Tuesday

The Ten On Tuesday prompt for today is 10 Things You Are Curious About. This is a good one, as I like to think of myself as a curious person, so let's see what I can come up with.

  1. Why is my mind cluttered with the lyrics of "Disco Duck" but I can't remember where I parked my car at the grocery store?
  2. What is the purpose of dreams and where do the things we dream about come from? (Can you tell I've had some wild dreams lately?)
  3. What happens after we die?
  4. How do people become addicted to cigarettes? I wonder about this, not in a judgmental way, but because I've coughed, gagged, and choked my way through the four cigarettes I've tried in my life, and I wonder how people overcome that awfulness to even get to a point where they enjoy smoking and become addicted to nicotine.
  5. How and why do music and scents evoke such powerful emotions and memories?
  6. Why was my usually very staid and proper neighbor wandering the streets on Saturday afternoon, dressed all in black and drinking from a red Solo cup?
  7. Why are people (I include myself here) so reticent to change their minds, even when presented with compelling evidence that they should do so?
  8. Why have I been obsessively thinking about apricots and raspberries together since I read about Carole's pie yesterday? 
  9. I'm wondering how this will taste for dessert tonight!
  10. I'm curious about Muhammad Ali after reading Kat's personal Ali story. I know very little about him aside from his boxing, but will be looking for a good biography to find out more. His pronouncement of "A man who views the world the same at 50 as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life,” makes him even more intriguing to me.
I'm also wondering what other interesting tidbits will be on ToT lists today. What are you curious about?


  1. Although I enjoyed your entire list, I think I really want to know the story behind #6!

  2. This list is filled with curiosities to solve! And, yes to #4 - I could not get past the choking sensation (for which I am eternally grateful) but this same conundrum fits for so many other addictions. And I am with Carole on #6!

  3. Well, thanks for nothing. "Disco Duck" has arrived.


  4. I have always wondered with you on #2 and #5.

  5. Oh #2. Where do all of these crazy combinations of life come from. Who are the strangers? How come the people that have died never talk in my dreams? And #6...you need to get on that! :-)

  6. GREAT list. But, then . . . I knew your list would be. :-)
    (And, yeah. Thanks for Disco Duck. . .)

  7. Number six, for sure - that would have me making up all sorts of different scenarios.

  8. I will forever be contemplating your whole list of 10!

  9. Good lord, "Disco Duck" is now stuck in my head!

  10. great list!! I wonder why people are resistant to change their minds as well (including myself!!)

  11. fun list! how was the apricot raspberry cake? looks delicious!
