Life is full of mysteries that leave us wondering and scratching our heads. Lice can also do this. But if you have a question about life, or even about lice, this is your chance to ask it. Just shoot me an email, at TippyGnu [at] gmx.com. Or, if you don’t feel like shooting me, you can ask the question in a comment.
Either way, I may decide to get off my lazy butt and put your question to the world, by featuring it on this blog. And then you’ll receive answers from my followers, some of whom possess the smartest brains on Earth. The rest are just smartasses. But either way, you’ll get answers. And we demand answers!
Today’s question comes from a friend. My friend’s wife bought some underwear for him, at Walmart. The underwear was sold in a thick plastic bag with a zipper on it. The bag was labeled, “Reusable Bag.” My friend wants to know why his unmentionables would be sold in a reusable bag? And who would want to reuse a bag that once contained undergarments? Isn’t that disgusting?
My friend has no use for this bag. He asserts that no tool of his is small enough to fit inside it. And he points out that he stores his pens and pencils in a special credenza on his desk. His stomach turns at the thought of storing food in this underwear purse.
He wants to throw it away, but his wife told him not to, because “it could come in handy one day.” She also warns that plastic is bad for the environment, and takes nearly as long as ancient pottery, to disintegrate in dumps.
Remember, there are no stupid questions, so here’s my friend’s: What should he do with this annoying underwear bag that keeps getting in his *@!$% way all the damn time?
