Wednesday "What the..." a day early...

I am so on top of it, I am living Wednesday today. I have a standing Wednesday playdate with some friends (and yes, we bring the kids, too), but we're doing it today... so in honor of that... I am going to do a Wednesday "What the...." today, as well. Some things are going on that warrant some commentary. Because really... what current event isn't enhanced by a little Lynn logic?!?!

1. How does an entire plane just disappear? I am not making light of this, because I am scared to death of flying, so major air disasters tend to make it on my radar. But, I am just wondering in the age of voice recorders, black boxes and uh... actual radar... why don't we know what happened? Was Air France cutting back on technology or what? Let's go ahead and agree that it is ok to cut back on the extra luggage for free, and its ok to take away our snack packs and peanuts... but it isn't ok to let us fly over the open seas and not be tracked. Some cut backs are just not ok.

2. I want to give a shout out to all the Pro-Lifers out there. I get the message and on some level, I even agree. (On some level.... not in reality land). But, could one of you explain to me why its not ok to terminate a pregnancy in the early stages, but it is ok to terminate an adult life? Because I am not sure I get that logic. That whole "every life is precious" thing should probably go ahead and apply to the already born and raised, too.

3. Lastly, on the list for Wednesday's "What the..." is the Murphy's law applied to owning a house. Why is it when you finally are going to invest in something that you would just L-O-V-E for your house (hypothetically, we'll say a patio that is actually bigger than a matchbook that could hold a table and chairs), you get an estimate on some water damage that runs at at minimum of $12,000. Goodbye, patio! Hello.... living in a box because who the hell can afford a repair that starts at $12,000. And, for the record... if you are sitting there thinking that you could easily afford that repair and you don't get where I am coming from... don't comment. Thanks.

I hope you had fun.
I also don't get the pro-lifers logic...I do like your take on this. Plain, simple and true! Such a tragedy.
