Answering All the Questions

My siblings would be quick to tell you that I have a habit of answering just about any question that is asked in my presence, whether I know the answer or not. My answer might range from the correct answer to an educated guess to a completely random answer drawn from nowhere, but will all be delivired with equal calm and conviction. It's probably a bad habit, but I like answering questions. Therefore, I decided to make a list of all of the recent questions that have shown us as Google searches that led to my blog. I hereby declare this blog post the one that contains all the answers to these queries:

"What are the disadvantages of marrying an older man?"

The answer to that is found in this post.

"What is Cosmetology?"

It is the study of hair, skin, and nails, and the processes and procedures involved in their appropriate beautification practices. Don't I sound all official?

"What is it like to go to Cosmetology school?"

In my own opinion, it's bad. But the details are found here.

"Why buy a rice cooker?"

Because rice is delicious.

"Why does Rachel on the Amazing Race wear pantyhose?"

I have no idea. I didn't even know that she did, honestly. Why are you staring at her legs?

I would be more likely to wear purple jeans when on the Amazing Race than pantyhose.
"Would you marry a man 7 years older?"

Yes, yes I would.

"Are mermaids real?"

I think it depends on your definition of real. Weeki Wachee Springs State Park says they are.

"Fake women are real so skinny women are fake?"

I'm not entirely sure I understand the structure of the question, but I'm leaning towards "no" as an answer.

"Is a family of 6 really huge?"

Do you mean a family of 6 with 2 parents and 4 children? Doesn't sound extreme to me.

"Is it wise to marry a guy 8 years older?"

Wouldn't it depend on the guy? I mean, as I've stated previously, I really think 7 years 4 days is the sweet spot, but whatever works for you.

"How to get rid of rachel haircut?'

Should I be offended by this question? 

"Pros and cons of marrying a guy 4 years younger?"

I wouldn't know anything about this, but, I mean, he'd currently be 18 so I don't think I'd consider it.

The moral to this story is that people have a lot of questions about the appropriate age gap between husband and wife, which is interesting, because I can't quite imagine turning to Google to research spousal age differences...

Hahahaa, I lved this post. Some random questions in the mix but you addressed every one like a pro. Your husband doesn't look 7 years and 4 days older than you. Not to say that you look old or anything. I mean you guys look perfect together and close in age. You both are and look young and beautiful.

So, when is the date you leave US?

Elizabeth M said...

Haha yea...I don't think I would turn to Google if I was having such a dilemma. I have decided that age really is just a number, based on the fact that I am about as "responsible" as anyone in their 30's - steady job, apartment, etc - yet still eat ice cream for dinner and practice pirouettes in my living room - like a 12 year old. It's all really confusing if you overthink it. If it works, it works!

Unknown said...

Haha! I guess a lot of people are concerned about age difference...once you hit a certain point, I really don't think it matters too much. I'm four months older than Jared!

Bekah Loves Blog said...

Ha! Older men are great. And those are fun questions.

Kate @ Another Clean Slate said...

Rice is definitely delicious!

Kari said...

Hilarious! Love that "Are Mermaids real?" question:)

Mrs. Cheerio said...

I had no idea Angel was older than you! He looks very young. :)

I always wanted to marry an older man. Like at least ten years older than me, and ended up marrying a younger man! Joel is a year younger, but still so much more mature and wise than me!

Erica said...

Ha, you certainly do get some interesting questions leading to your blog! Sensible answers, I might add :)

Moonofsilver said...

this is a genius idea for a blog post :) I am glad that you and Angel are so happy together, no matter what the age gap is! He's so awesome. It was AMAZING to meet both of you!

Charlene Maugeri said...

This is so funny! Where did you find questions that lead to your blog? Google Analytics? I wonder what they were thinking with that "fake women" question. And I assume when they say the "Rachel Haircut" they mean the one made popular by Rachel Green on Friends. I've heard that was actually a thing and an official name for that hair cut for a while.

AiringMyLaundry said...

Ha, awesome.

Some of the searches for my blog are odd. One was, "How to clean underpants." Um?

Jeffrey & Shannon said...

Haha... I found your blog b/c I think your icon was on a link-up to Modest Mom's blog? And the title was "We're Moving to China" - and I had to click immediately ;)

Courtney said...

Haha the Jennifer Anniston haircut! You don't need to be offended lol!!

And yes, Cosmo school is bad bad bad. Get your hours and then get the heck out of dodge.

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

Hahahahah... "the Rachel haircut"... I wanted one of those but I did NOT look anything like Jennifer Aniston afterwards! hahah

retrobellewife said...

Funnily enough, my 14 year old brother thinks my husband is too old, too. He is older than me by a grand total of (are you ready for this) 5 1/2 years. To my brother though, that makes him ancient. It's really quite funny. Needless to say, he picks on Justin about being an old man and Justin picks on him about being too young. :)

Ali Hval said...

I think marrying an older dude sounds absolutely awesome. Then he's actually ready for a real relationship instead of just screwing around like most dudes our age do? I dunno, man, but I totally admire you for having an older husband-o. ;)

Anonymous said...

Ha! yes, why are they staring at her legs?! haha! being a mom to a five-year-old, I definitely answer more than a fair share of questions.. so I can relate. :-)

Amanda said...

Don't you know that Google has the answer to EVERYTHING? ;) A rice cooker is going to be an immediate purchase once we have a house. Currently I have no available counter space for that kind of thing.

Haley said...

The first post I ever read of yours was about the mermaid place you were visiting. I remembered thinking it was so neat that there was a theme park for that kind of thing..!

Kathy@MoreCoffeeLessTalky said...

um, google is the answer to all of life's questions! LOL these are hilarious; i esp love the rice cooker one!

Isn't it flat out wild how some people find your blog? Tony and I always have a good chuckle over some of those that lead folks to mine as well (and coindicendally, he was just suggesting a few days ago that I write a post akin to this for my blog one day - haven't yet, but perhaps one day). I've had everything from questions about the birds and bees (total stumper there, as my site is soooo family friendly, intentionally, that it's not even funny) to how to remove grass stains from vintage clothing. You just never know what someone is out there looking for (well, at you don't know until Google tells you! :)).

LOL! This is awesome!!
