Items I Could Do Without

‘Cause I Said So

Welcome to my random thoughts page entitled “'Cause I Said So.”  These are general musings, rants, observations and otherwise unimportant details I notice about life.  Enjoy and share.

Items I Could Do Without

What is the point of some items that keep popping up in my life? It makes no logic to me.



Without merit.

There.  I feel better for just saying that.

These unserviceable items appear from nowhere and pop into my life just to annoy me.  I think you know what I'm talkin' about...

Dog Strollers

 When I first spotted these, I was heading into the bank.  The security guard rushed to hold the door open for the young woman with the stroller.  Imagine our surprise when he and I discovered a small dog in the pink carriage.

 My question here:  Since when can’t dogs walk?


Sugary Sweet Cereal

 This morning I got up to make my coffee, walking about the kitchen as usual.  I felt something sticky and crunchy on my feet.  What could it be?  Ah yes, my husband’s Golden Crisp cereal that he snacked on in the middle of the night.

I had to get the broom out and sweep those babies up.  Who eats this stuff once they’re past 10 years old?

Sticky, sticky, crunch, crunch…   I’m sure I’ll step on more later.


Teeny Tiny Free Samples

 At Sephora they handed me a free sample of under-eye cream.  Begrudgingly, I accepted it.  With a dab of cream the size of a pencil eraser, how am I to determine whether or not I like this stuff?  There’s not enough product to make a case on whether it’s effective.

Is it just me?


Fidget Spinners



Sports Pages

I know, I’m not going to win this one.  People love their sports.  But I immediately recycle the sports section of my daily newspaper.  Never even look at it.

I enjoy attending games to people watch, eat a hot dog, and buy a t-shirt that I’ll never wear again.  Playoffs excite me – especially when Chicago’s in the mix.  Other than that, I don’t follow entire seasons.

I do acquiesce over the Boston Red Sox, though.  Where else does the crowd stand and lovingly sing Neil Diamond’s Sweet Caroline?  And I know of no other place where the vendors sell New England Chowder.

Plus my husband and I celebrated our engagement at a game at Fenway Park.  Love it.


 Snow Storms

 I like snow... it’s pretty.   I have some good memories of blizzards as well.

But if it completely covers my car, it’s more than enough, thank you.


 Need I say more?
