People are silly--or is it just me?

I was combing my hair last night just before I was going to bed and I thought, "How silly!" Being salt restricted I have been staying away from sour pickles which I love because of the sodium content in the brine but today when I was getting some (low sodium) cheese in the supermarket I saw jars of sour pickles and decided to look at the salt content--it wasn't too bad until I looked at what a serving consisted of--1/3rd of a spear!! Who eats 1/3rd of a spear of a pickle???? Don't tell me portion servings of food aren't silly--come on, a 6 ounce can of tuna is suppose to provide 3 servings?? I don't know who is sillier--the conservative who rants and raves about 'liberals' (anyone who disagrees with them) or the 'born again' christian who spews hatred. Isn't it silly not to be honest on the web? Why lie? How can anyone be silly enough to complain they are bored when there are so many diverse, new and interesting things all around them to do and/or see? Isn't it silly when you do something wrong to berate yourself instead of correcting the wrong? Why do people continue in negative relationships thinking "I know what I have, I don't know what I can get into?" Isn't it sillier to be afraid of the unknown than to 'settle'? And I won't get into how silly it is for people (like me!) talking to their pets in baby talk. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE LATELY THAT HAS BEEN SILLY?? (Hey, I admitted to combing my hair before getting into bed and baby talking to my birds!) I feel the only humans that have the right to be silly are children. :o)

@GreatMartin I am sill crazy after all these years and proud of it. What would I do if I couldn't talk to my cat or to the birds I feed in my yard. Life would be boring if I didn't talk to myself and just had hubby to chat with. He is not always talkative anyway. Hey, silly is a great thing to be and I can tell you that your birds love you for it because they feel so love. You've inspired me I might just head for a toy store and treat myself
I brush my hair a lot. When I was still a teacher (I'm retired), I used to do it between lessons. I had a hairbrush at my place in the staff room. At the end of my last term, I got a hairbrush as a farewell present from my colleagues. Very funny. I thanked them and advised them to also get one and use it often because brushing one's hair stimulates the brain and that can do everyone good. The laugh was on me. If you sell your silly habits well, you can get away with a lot. :-) Let's not begin with born again Christians or any other religious zealots. That would spoil my day.
