It strikes me that almost every time someone says “Why not?” as a justification for an action, there are several good and obvious reasons not to have done what they did.
“Why did you get that neck tattoo?
“I figured, ‘Why not’? you know?”
“How about because it eliminated you from approximately every non-service industry job you will ever apply for and that it was painful and that it cost you $85 ?”
Stuff like that. Rarely does anyone say “Why not?” and any reasonable person couldn’t immediately think of at least three simple and practical reasons why not. Nobody ever thinks, “You know what, there probably isn’t any good reason not to have airbrushed a topless woman riding a unicorn on the trunk of his Cutlass.”
I’m going to end this short post in a terribly trite, hackneyed, worn-out way and when you see it, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. It will be lame.
But, hey, why not?
