Today I was assigned the topic: puzzle. My first plan was to write about my love for online puzzle games, but then I thought no. My second plan was to write about the last time I put together a puzzle, which was with a 2 year old and I got some pieces wrong. My third thought was to write a list of things that puzzled me, I even texted my friends for some inspiration but due to them having lives, I am yet to receive their responses. So here I am with my final no plan option, which is to write about how impossible it has proved for me to write about puzzles.
Below is a list of things that puzzle me the most:
Why can we not take certain items in our hand luggage but can pack it in the hold luggage? I mean it all goes on the same flight, it will be harmful regardless of where its placed on the plane.
Why did the French not create numbers for 70, 80 and 90? 60 is soixante in French, 70 is soixante-dix (60-10), 80 is quatre-vingts (4-20s), 90 is quatre-vingt-dix (4-20s – 10). The French speaking Belgians also thought that this was strange and created actual words for these numbers.
Why is everyone so obsessed with being normal and fitting in? No one wants to stand out and be different anymore, we all just want to be carbon copies of celebrities. Why? I mean I would rather be extra-ordinary than ordinary. But that’s just me.
Thank you for reading.
