So the other day we were discussing our best "thinking" places and how I like to think in the shower but i can't because i have to focus, or else i'll mess up my routine and put the wrong stuff in my hair, for example. This doesn't really have much to do with how I came to this thought but remember that? that was fun.
Ok, so this morning i was making a shopping list and wrote down "shampoo." Interesting word. I don't pretend to understand English... i mean, ha ha. I can't explain why things are the way they are in English. It's a crazy language. (I DO, for the most part, understand it. This reminds me of the time when my sister Ashley asked me a yes/no question and i nodded my head automatically and she said, "yeah?" and then I suddenly realized what she asked me and i said, "oh! no. I mean no!" And then we laughed and i explained, "nodding just means i understood the question." It's still a favorite joke and hey look, another example of me zoning out at inappropriate times.)
Anyway, shampoo. What? why? Why the hey am i putting in my hair something that contains the word POO? And what does "sham" mean? I mean, i know it's a word, but what does it have to do with anything? if i try to make sense of this word, i would say, "it's a product for your hair that's not really poo, it's just pretending to be!" So i guess that's a little comforting. But if i want that, why do I want a poo-imitation product instead of the real thing? These are the questions I ask myself.
