Im wondering if we could go back in time & correctly diagnose things like ADHD, ASD, asthma, allergies etc would the % of the population affected really be increasing over time. im thinking it would remain very much the same.

If I won $100 million power ball tonight I think one of the first things I’d do would be hire someone who could refill the soda stream bottle which everyone drinks but no one but me ever refills.

I wonder what animals think of us. Do they sometimes watch us do things and wonder why we are doing it?

I always have imagined what is happening behind the lit windows in houses at dusk when I drive home. I like to think it’s many thousands of people cooking dinner, putting pjs on, breathing out for the first time all day. It makes me so happy and I feel connected to the whole world.

with the coin thing....we did a french song in 3 unit french that was that - well, it was a french franc note (pre euro - i’m old) - the song was about the franc, and where it went, and what it saw...from memory lots of white powder and brothels ....

i’m working through pavlova recipes....my last one (Margaret Fulton recipe) was good, if i can do a humble brag...but - you know the tip - once you whisk the egg white and sugar pinch a little bit between your fingers and it shouldn’t feel gritty, well - mine always feels just a little bit gritty? i have never not had grit....and the one time i kept going and going with the whisking to get the grit out i overworked the egg  whites and the whole thing collapsed in on itself. has anyone ever not had grit...?

I sometimes wonder if I ever sat at the traffic lights in a car next to my husband two years before we met. Or if an ambulance paramedic once sat in the same movie theatre as someone who they later waved the life of. If a sales assistant once served someone who became their best friend years later. That sort of thing. How often do our threads cross.

ok this might get a negative eb reaction...you never know...but sometimes when we’re out to dinner - restaurant, pub etc....and we see an unlikely couple, an unlikely group dynamic...we nod to them (*very* discreetly) and say “what’s their story” ...and we do a guessing game...

Sometimes I might see a stranger and then see them in various places and recall seeing them before. I often wonder if I am that person to anyone else.

I wonder what kind of conversations famous couples have when they are alone.

i also spend too much time wondering if magic is real and there is a stargate on earth somewhere. I want to be a hero lol.

Ohh and I also wonder if I could be a hero if we had an invasion or if I'd be an extra and just die running down the street.

I also spend too much time thinking like a 'scene of crime' type worker. Wonder where I've left DNA traces, what my story is for being somewhere or doing something. What would I do if falsely accused of something.

Sometimes I see someone random and think ‘they’re just crossed in front of me and they have a whole life they are living that has nothing to do with mine and there are millions of other people the same’

I grew up in the next suburb over from my husband and wonder the same thing- we didn’t meet until I was 16 and he was 17.

Sorta along those lines, me and my sister sometimes try to predict which couples featured in bridal magazines will divorce.

We play a game called "first tinder date".

Basically people watching and noticing if anyone is on what appears to be their first date. Then narrating if it's going well or bad.

One couple started the game because it was obviously a first date and probably from tinder.

She was beautifully dressed in alternative rockabilly type clothes with short fringe, tattoos and red lipstick. He was in a flanno, thongs and I think footy shorts or crappy jeans? He looked way more surfy/footballer bro then alternative style...their date was very quiet and awkward. They literally looked like they had nothing in common and I remember wondering why on Earth did they both agree to the date 😂

One of my now closest friends we met at work 6 years ago, we looked familiar to each other the “I know you from somewhere but don’t know where” type deal, turns out we both as teens had some mutual friends, went to the same underage clubs on weekends, went to some of the same parties, we also lived close by growing up.
It’s funny that we didn’t actually meet or become friends until our late 20’s.

I wonder when I'm thinking of old friends, old colleagues or old flames, if they ever think of me and if they do, are their memories happening at the same time as mine.



As for crossing paths, in 1986 I was meeting a girlfriend for lunch in the CBD and she brought along a new colleague - all good.

In 1988 I met my now DH and after a few months of going out, getting pretty serious and discussing past relationships, I discovered that the young woman my friend had brought to lunch had been in a long term relationship with DH at the time.

Funny thing, DH was introduced to me by my best friend who didn't know either of the other two people in this tale.

Haha we were talking to the kids last night about what we’d do if we won $100m. DS wanted to buy a mansion and a Lamborghini, I said I’d fly first class to Europe, then DD said we’ll I’m just buying a house and going to uni, because that money will be gone before you know it :lol:

At my work we do a "monthly dinner club" which can really vary in size from month to month. Sometimes there's 20 of us, once there was only 3 of us. That time we were at a little Greek restaurant, I might describe my appearance as a little "witchy" or gothic, with a born again Christian older woman who prayed to herself before dinner, and a man aged in between us who looks like a lumberjack. Three different racial backgrounds too related was probably off the table.

The waiter did ask us what our deal was, then said "I'm so sorry, it's just that you guys are so mis-matched".

I loved it.

I thought everyone did this.

I like to people watch, I find watching people fascinating. I try not to stare because people get weirded out by that :lol:

I love listening to phone calls in public and trying to make up what the other person is saying. Don’t use speaker people, it ruins it for me.

When we are doing road trips I like to imagine who lives in the houses along the way - this is between napping of course!

I have to admit I used to watch the music quiz show on ABC tv years a go (can't remember the name but it was Australian)

And they had a segment about 'musician or serial killer'

It makes my trips to shopping centers a little more amusing I will admit
