"Paging Dr. Freud."

how, precisely, i ended up lost,
i will never quite know.

maybe it was all the moving and unpacking and new housing and whatnot.

maybe it's the summer solstice.

maybe it was a wrong turn on Google, who knows?

however it was, too many times today, Google would stare me in the face
its cursor blinking in the Search box

i would start off "why". . . .

and my brain would fall off the edge of the earth and
forget what on earth i was seeking the answer to.

so, Google, ever-so-helpful,
filled in the most-searched phrases starting with "why".

Why is the sky blue?
Why do we dream?
Why is a raven like a writing desk?
Why is my poop green?
Why do dogs eat poop?
Why do men cheat?
Why am I so tired?
Why are manhole covers round?
Why do cats purr?
Why is the ocean salty?

Very deep, profoundly probing questions about
the nature of office furniture and bodily functions and earthly mysteries

so you can imagine that when i saw this helpful list populate,
there was no remembering my original query!


i had a whole new list of 10 new inquiries to make my mind spin.

finally, hours and hours and many attempts later
i finally managed to form my question:

"why bathroom non GFCI plugs not working"

and honestly?
i really liked Google's questions better.

because, hey, let's face it.
i would really LOVE to know why i am so tired.
