52 Questions “Why” for My Birthday

I am inquisitive guy. I ask people a lot of questions; sometimes Mrs. Dude thinks it’s a bit much. But the other side is not asking any questions. And what do we learn from that? (See…there’s another question.)

So today, for my birthday, I’m asking 52 questions “Why”.

  1. Why 52 questions?
  2. Why do you think?
  3. Why did I wait 15 years to finally get serious about trying to learn the guitar?
  4. Why didn’t I start eating healthier as soon as I was diagnosed with celiac instead of just eating “gluten-free”?
  5. Why are 13 old, white senators determining the future of our health care?
  6. Why do fools fall in love?
  7. Why did they make Speed 2? Or Rocky 4-7? Or Caddyshack 2? Or Godfather 3? Or Pirates of the Caribbean 27?
  8. Why does anyone think its ok for our president, or anybody for that matter, to mock a disabled person?
  9. Why did the Mets trade Tom Seaver?
  10. Why does Udis continue to make unusable bread?
  11. Why can’t we have decent health insurance like other countries do?
  12. Why do I still have a landline phone in my office?
  13. Why do I still pay for cable TV?
  14. Why did I ever move to LA only to come back 10 months later?
  15. Why did I “follow” so much growing up instead of just being myself?
  16. Why can’t we do something about the gun violence in this country?
  17. Why does it hurt when I pee? (Frank Zappa)
  18. Why didn’t I start drinking coffee when I was younger?
  19. Why am I still not myself in certain situations and with certain people?
  20. Why did I get bladder cancer? And pulmonary embolisms? And yeah…let’s throw celiac in the mix.
  21. Why do dogs lick themselves? (answer: because they can)
  22. Why did my dad drink so much?
  23. Why do iPhone’s usually start falling apart after a year?
  24. Why do I let the haters get to me?
  25. Why can’t I get to that next phase of my business?
  26. Why did my dog just poop twice when I only had one bag?
  27. Why can’t we find a cure for cancer?
  28. Why was the Pet Rock ever a thing?
  29. Why did I have that fourth drink last Saturday?
  30. Why didn’t I discover serious exercise earlier?
  31. Why is the diagnosis rate for celiac still so low?
  32. Why is gluten-free STILL getting mocked by the media?
  33. Why can’t the Rangers win more than one Stanley Cup in 60 years?
  34. Why did I ever try to become an actor when it was clear early one it wasn’t in the stars?
  35. Why don’t I go grab a second cup of joe?
  36. Why don’t you hold on until I come back?
  37. Why yes…I’m back.
  38. Why don’t we get drunk and screw? (Jimmy Buffet)
  39. Why don’t we have bidets in this country?
  40. Why can’t Mrs. Dude and I find even two nights a week to watch House of Cards?
  41. Why was there EVER slavery?
  42. Why would a woman EVER make less than a man for the same position?
  43. Why do I start growing hair on my ears as I age?? (yes…that gets two question marks!)
  44. Why did my Aunt Carol have to lose two siblings (including my mom) and a best friend in a matter of six months?
  45. Why did McLean Stevenson leave MASH after two seasons?
  46. Why don’t we do it in the road? (The Beatles)
  47. Why did the Dudettes grow up so dang quickly?
  48. Why is it taking so long to finish the cover for my upcoming eBook?
  49. Why didn’t Dexter stop after season five?
  50. Why can’t we just find peace in the world?
  51. Why challenge the status quo?
  52. WHY NOT?

I may not have all the answers in life. But after 52 years, I sure have a lot of questions.

And finally…since year one of my blog, I’ve posted the below video. And after 8 years, it still makes me laugh. Enjoy.
