“When you have birds you stare at them a lot and their eyes are recessed on their head. When they look at something they tilt their head in a quizzical expression. “ -Ted Rall
Not too sure if quizzical is an emotion but it keeps coming up on the Internet as one. Since I’m having a hard time finding a “Q” word for today I am going to use this one.
Quizzical is a word you do not hear every day. It can mean a variety of things such as puzzled, questioning, eccentric, odd, skeptical, surprised, and even comical. Since this word can mean comical I have decided to share some saying that I though could be considered quite quizzical.
I am not sure who said these as I did a search and came up with nothing. So I’m thinking they are all from an unknown author. If you happen to know who said any of these saying please let me know so I can give credit.
1. There are plenty more fish in the sea, but who wants to go out on a date with a fish?
2. Have you ever considered suing your brain for non-support?
3. Don’t use a silencer to kill a mime or his friends will hear you.
4. When I was little, my mom told me I could be anyone I wanted to be. Apparently, the cops call this identity theft.
