The 10 BIG Questions In Life


When we’re young we have no fewer questions then when do we eat and what’s happening down there?


This morphs into who do we let touch it and why won’t they leave me alone?


Eventually, we start to question the wisdom behind jumping off a cliff.


The primordial urge to see how far we can push the envelope begins to tear.


As we get older, we face our mortality.




It ends.


What do we leave behind?


Will it have meaning?


Will it matter?


And then… the Big Questions.


What does it ALL MEAN?


Where did it all start?


Is there a God?


I have heard an answer….


There IS a God and She wants answers to all the same questions, like:

  1. Why doesn’t the oven heat to a factual temperature? When I set it to 350- why does it bake like a 325 fool- fool?
  2. What is the reason my husband’s shoes can not make it back to the closet?
  3. Why do we still receive Wednesday Shopper’s Flyers in the mail, that I, inevitably, throw in the recycle bin when there are starving children in Africa and I’m sure this, somehow, effects that?
  4. Why do we have to wait a year for the next season of Downton Abby?
  5. When I purchase drapes at 107 inches, why do they hang at 105?
  6. Will the occasional slice of cake react to my metabolism like a tsunami on a mission to expand- forever?
  7. Is Donald Trump’s comb-over a personal choice?
  8. Why do I hear a 1950s movie Musical on the TV, in the other room, when I KNOW that my husband only watches Alaskan Naked Idiot’s In The Woods On A Boat reality TV?
  9. Why does Eddie Falco taunt me for donations to the ASPCA- daring me to ‘refuse’, least I find myself on the heavy end of concrete Minolo Blahniks.
  10. and, if a bear sh*ts in the woods, does it……?


All Life affirming questions, of which, the answers, could unlock the meaning of Life.


… wait… I hear The Notebook upstairs… Ben!.. WTH????

The 10 BIG Questions In Life

  • Abby - Some serious stuff here again! Loved it! But hey Cheryl, what would you do if you had Trump’s hair? I mean there are only that many choices for people with half-head-hair!ReplyCancel

  • Carol Cassara - I’m dyin’ here! LOL Not literally, of course. Well, you know, everytime I see “life ends” I always want to say, “No! It doesn’t!” But I can wish for the end to the wait for the last season of Downton.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl - Why do they do this? Make us ‘wait’ an entire year? Couldn’t they have just filmed it all, at once, and released it into my television??? For my personal pleasure? I would have shared it, of course, but charged admission. I’m a ‘giver’.ReplyCancel

  • Sharon Greenthal - …What will I watch when I’m done bingeing on “Game of Thrones?” That’s serious stuff.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl - I have to start all over again with Game Of Thrones. Last year it interfered with something else and now I’m lost. Story of my Life.ReplyCancel

  • 1010ParkPlace - “Game of Thrones”… What do I watch now that MadMen’s over? Great post, Cheryl. BrendaReplyCancel

    • Cheryl - Hey Brenda! I loved Mad Men too. I’m currently hooked to Scandal, House Of Cards, VEEP, Call The Midwife, The Last Ship, Grace & Frankie… So much good television. So little time.ReplyCancel

  • Toni McCloe - We’ll they may not be the top questions on my list but I do wonder sometimes why I have to wait so long to watch Downtown Abbey and how long it will be before I get to watch Donald Trump again with my mouth wide open. I read The Notebook for the first time this year and I loved it. Why did I wait so long?ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl - Loved the book, and even though I usually think the movie version sucks I think they hit it out of the ballpark with this one. I heard McAdams & Gosling didn’t like each other. I wouldn’t have guessed that. The chemistry was electric. I want some of that chemistry…. *wink*ReplyCancel

  • Judy Krell Freedman - I’d run to “The Notebook” too!ReplyCancel

  • Kathy Gottberg - hahahaha! How did you know that I ask myself some of those very same questions? Especially the one about Thom’s shoes! Thanks for helping me laugh about them…. KathyReplyCancel

  • Haralee Weintraub - Funny questions and some to ponder. Yes to #7, it has to be or a small well trained animal?ReplyCancel

  • William Kendall - The Donald lives in an alternate fantasy world in his mind where he truly believes he’ll be the greatest president in the history of forever and that no one notices his hair issues.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl - He certainly is confident. ANd so is the small woodland creature on his head. Hahahaaaa.ReplyCancel

  • Joan Harrington - LOL now that was a very well written and funny post Cheryl!! Really enjoyed reading it 🙂 Yes, the Notebook is one of my favorites as well!!ReplyCancel

  • Cathy Chester - I want to put a computer chip inside your brain to learn more about your thought processes, my dear. As to #7. Whatever is growing up there it fits The Donald’s personality to a tee. Unmanageable, unreasonable and ill-mannered,ReplyCancel

  • Mari Collier - LOL Calm down. Those questions really don’t have an answer. Just go with the flow. Oh, Lanny once told me never to put his boots or anything else away. I said, “You got it, Cowboy.” He was the neat freak. Years later he admitted it was one of the dumbest things he ever said.ReplyCancel

  • Ruth Curran - Seriously funny questions Cheryl! Comb over / stray squirrel / spun dryer lint…. One in the same. You crack me up. Every. Single. Time!ReplyCancel

  • Leanne@crestingthehill - I love how our questions escalate with age – I’m already wondering what I’ll leave behind. Why am I wasting my time wondering that when I could be wondering whether another piece of chocolate would make me happy? I do love your posts 🙂ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl - One must prioritize the wondering. I think having an additional piece of chocolate would be right up there, because, really, why not. Unless they can bury me with a box and a few pieces hanging out of my mouth? Hahaaa Thanks for the support! I love seeing you here!ReplyCancel

  • Rena McDianiel - So many questions so little time. I bet he uses a Dyson on his head every morning.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl - Can you imagine? It’s a good thing He’s omnipotent! And has unlimited electric.ReplyCancel
