Ruminations of a Red Dirt Hussy

Things I know that I didn’t know I knew. Like anyone else really wants to know.

It’s virtually impossible to know how much you know that you didn’t know you knew. Seriously.

My head is so full of stuff I have to remember that it doesn’t seem as if there’s room for anything I don’t know I know. I mean, where would I put it?

However, being a big believer in learning by osmosis, I knew there had to be more in my head than what I know is there. Because otherwise, you know, it would just be like, sad. So, I utilized my morning sit and stare to think about what I know that I didn’t know I knew (multi-tasking, as it were). I jotted down a few, in case you don’t know them and you know you don’t:

  • Mr. Magoo’s first name is Quincey.
  • The longest word in the English language typed entirely with the left hand is stewardesses.
  • Fox News hardly ever has actual news.
  • People who watch Fox News don’t believe that but people who watch MSNBC do.
  • MSNBC hardly ever has actual news.
  • People who watch MSNBC don’t believe that, but people who watch Fox News do.
  • If you are ever chased by zombies, all you have to do is climb a fire escape. It is a well-known fact that zombies can’t climb. What? Have you ever seen a zombie do that? Well, then.




  • Politics sucks.
  • Politicians blow.
  • Bill Clinton does both those things, but I like him anyway.
  • People don’t listen with their ears. If they did, everybody would know the same thing, and nobody would be spinning anything.
  • Blocking people on Facebook feels good. Knowing you can unfriend them if necessary feels better.
  • If you shake yourself like a dog after you shower you could fall down.
  • “Hey, who’s that Ken doll standing next to Mitt” and “Boy, Hilary looks old” does not constitute valid political analysis.
  • Gelatin comes from animal hooves, bones, and other parts. Which is why I don’t eat Jell-O.
  • Republicans prefer Sam’s Club. Democrats like Costco. All right, damn it. It’s on Wikipedia. Look. It. Up.
  • Wearing ugly shoes is the best contraceptive.

OK. I’ve emptied my brain for you. Now, you do it for me. What do you know that you didn’t know you knew and I don’t know at all?



  1. I learn so much from you. The stuff I know but didn’t know I knew is quite different from the stuff you know but didn’t know you knew. I know stuff like I really have a much greater capacity to be kind than I knew I did, given what’s going on in my mind about people at any given time. I know I didn’t know I knew I could be so happy, but I kind of suspected it all along so I’m not sure if that qualifies. I know a 5 pound sack of flour makes a mighty big biscuit, but I didn’t know it until a guy once told me that. And I know you make a world of difference in a lot of people’s lives just by being you and sharing you with the rest of us. But I don’t think that qualifies on my list. I think it goes on your list of stuff you know but didn’t know you knew.

    • You think you’re going to make me cry, but you’re not. Oh. Wait. My eyes are leaking. But I’m not crying.

  2. Oh, you are so funny. I don’t know what I know that I don’t know. I can’t make a list. Someone has to ask a question not expecting an answer, than I answer it, correctly. It surprises everyone, me included. The only useless information I can think of at the moment is that it takes a sow (pig) three months, three weeks and three days to create a little of little pigs. But then, every hog farmer knows that, so I’m not sure it qualifies.

    • I’m so full of useless information that I don’t have room for important information, if I knew it when I saw it.

  3. All I can say is never play “Trivial Pursuit” with me. I win for answering things like “What’s a henway” and “Why isn Ruth such a good thing and ruth-less so bad?”. And remember “Crest has been shown to be an effective decay-preventive dentifrice when used in a conscientiously applied program of…” (but, that one doesn’t count because I knew I knew that one.)
    And yet, i can’t remember where I left my car keys.
    Thank you for being so funny and sharing your brains with us. Are you going to Nimrod? See ya there.
