One Reason Why I Make and Design My Own Men’s Clothing

I got into sewing because of lack of choices I had for nice clothing for men 5’2″ and 108 lbs. On the traditional side, there was lack of quality and choices. I was limited to basically altering youth’s clothing, which wasn’t great in terms of style, nor quality.

Something not as funny is when people post songs stuck in their heads on Facebook. It’s a good thing it doesn’t play as their friends see the status update link, but they likely know the song. If it were to get stuck in their heads as well, just a reminder of the song would do it, never mind actually hearing it. But if they haven’t heard of the song and are curious of what it is, they could be in for a nasty surprise after what may be an initial laugh that the song is stuck in someone else’s head.

So what I want to know is whether you think people should post “earworm” songs stuck in their heads on Facebook? They could be spreading their temporary insanity on to others, you know!

Take the poll below. Leave a comment. Maybe even be annoying and post a song stuck in your head right now or recently. 😉
