Random Thoughts #38

June 12, 2021

The world would spin a little smoother for me if the word “scissors” made sense. Why is scissors called a pair of scissors when it’s just one item and not a pair?

It would make sense to me if each part of the scissors was actually a separate tool called a “scissor” and then at some point in time someone had a genius idea to transform the scissor from a stabbing/jabbing tool into a cutting tool by hinging up a scissor with another scissor and called it “scissors”, but google is not telling me that ever happened.

I remember being happy when Jennifer Aniston was not a pair with Brad Pitt anymore because I thought that maybe I still had a chance. But then some Justin guy came into the picture and I moved on.

So it goes.

    Well thought out Michael. I am sure Jennifer would have been there in a shot if she knew who you were.
    I think the toothbrush was invented by some sort of hillbilly or a backwoods hermit otherwise it would have been called a teethbrush 😀
    A great take on the prompt. Thanks for joining in 🙂 🙂
