Do You Ever Wonder?

Sometimes I wonder about things. Like, who was the first person to look at an oyster and say, "Wow, that looks yummy?" Or an avacado, or rhubarb, or a lot of those weird foods we have out there. Not that they're not good ... it's just that they look so strange I can't imagine eating them if I didn't already know what they were.

And who thought the word spelunking was a good one for cave exploration? Did some guy honestly think that when people asked him what he did for fun that it would be good to tell them he was a spelunker?

This seems kind of random, but there are so many things in this big, wide world that make me wish I had a time machine and I could go back and see how they got started. If I could find the person who decided that women should wear bras and makeup, I'd sure like to have a talk with them!

I want to know who came up with the word "smorgasbord"? I just LOVE that word! Someone had to find a fabulous word for "a whole lot of somethin'"! You are so delightful and that's really saying somethin in a world full of "de-dark-full" people! Love ya!

I like that word too Tiff! Kevin asked an interesting question after this posting: who was the first person who saw an egg come out of a chicken's butt and say "I think I'll fry that up at eat it!"
