Fun Fact Friday.

This week has kicked my ass.

So let's get right down to it.

Fun Fact Friday. You know the rules. Leave a fun fact. Or else.

Fun fact: When you die your hair still grows for a couple of months.

Happy Weekending!









Sidenote: there used to be a news anchor in Houston (RIP Marvin Zindler) who used to sign off on Friday nights with "Have a good weekend - good golf, good tennis, or whatever makes you happy." Every time I say "Happy Weekending" I think of that.

Fun Fact: Or Not so Fun: Your ears and nose never stop growing. Hence why most old people have huge ears. Maybe they are just trying to keep up with our hair.

Dolphins don't breathe automatically - they have to tell themselves to breath.

Stupid dolphins, good thing they are so cute.

My fun fact actually negates your fun fact.

Your hair and nails don't grow when you die, your skin dehydrates and retracts.

I'm not a scientist but I do work at a funeral home.

When I showed the 5 year old I nanny a picture of my parents big fat beagle named Gwenny he asked why she didn't look like a Volkswagon...

Fun Fact: Apparently 5 year olds think "beagle" sounds like "beetle" or that they are the same thing.

Fun fact. Periods suck. Is that not fun?

On Criminal Minds, they said it's not that your hair keeps growing when you die, but it's your skin dehydrating & shrinking away that makes your hair look like it's grown. Hmm.

Fun Fact: Deep throating WILL give you a bruise on your soft palette. How do I know? A co-worker had a patient that had a bruise there last week & was smart enough to take a picture with an intraoral camera, to show to the whole office. :) (We did learn in college, that it is possible also, and can be sign of sexual abuse. But this girl was 19 and just a hootch.)
