What would life be like if we wore pants on our arms?

The title is random you say? Quite so. This question was actually posed by my younger brother who came up to me with a pair of pants on his arms. To his question I had no response as he ran away soon after.

Something important that everyone should know no matter how old they are or what stage of life they are in:

Don't be shy to ask questions, ever. People don't like to ask questions out of fear that people around them will think they are "stupid" or "inattentive." So what? That may not even be the case. Curiosity may have killed the cat, but we are not cats. Sorry if that's what you wanted to be when you grew up.

Before 10th grade, I never asked questions because no one around me asked questions, which in turn made me think that everyone understood everything except me. But that was not true at all, everyone just believed that asking questions meant annoying your peers, looking dumb, seeking attention, etc. Don't worry about what other people think about you. Especially if you know that what you are doing is right. I'm not saying that you can go to work covered in pizza sauce and expect everyone around you to understand that. For that matter don't go anywhere covered in pizza sauce, pizza parties included. 

On the plus side, by asking that question, you helped other people around you who had that same question, or if it is regarding a set of instructions, you'll be able to complete your task effectively.  

I'm an extremely curious person, I have so many questions about everything and sometimes people laugh at some of my questions because they find them amusing. I'm not offended by it because by nature I'm a silly person.

Seriously though, whenever you have a question no matter how ridiculous you think your question is remember these things: 

1. Finding out the answer is way more satisfying than not knowing.
2. Someone out there is asking a more ridiculous question than you.
3. That someone is probably me.
4. If you really don't want to ask someone that question but you still want (need) to know the answer, ask me! 

I'll be more than happy to answer it for you. Sorry if I can't answer it to your liking, but I will sure try. Better yet, try Googling it! Google is seriously one of my best friends. If I could I would totally put Google on my speed dial. 

I hope this post convinces at least one of you, because asking questions is fun and it's great! 
In honor of this post, here is a question for ya'll:

What is your favorite word?

You don't have to give me your answers but feel free to do so, I would love to read your answers!
There will be a new question ever week. Feel free to post anonymously if you like!

I'll have new posts every weekend. Much love.
