Things I Wonder about : A Humorous Look at the World
Have you an inquiring mind? Is the universe a mystery to you? If so, Things I Wonder About is the book for you. Awash with bite-sized chunks of interrogations on everything from relationships to religion, show business to language and much else besides, it manages to both intrigue and infuriate in equal doses with its investigations into the manner in which life seems to conspire to frustrate people at every turn with its illogicality. * Why is there a light in the fridge but not the freezer? * Why do people ask you how you are and not wait for the answer? *How does soap know the one place in the bath to go where you can't find it? * Is the easiest way to come back from L.A. with a small fortune to go there with a large one? * If it wasn't for electricity, would we all be watching television by candlelight? If you've been asking yourself questions like these over the years, now is your chance to see them all together in plain sight in an entertaining trawl through the absurdities of everyday life.
