Words You Coined for Everyday Objects

On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. I asked this question last year but loved the responses so much I'm asking again. What incorrect (or invented) words for everyday objects did you, your siblings or your kids dream up? (Cassie's use of "The Buttons" for a TV remote has stuck with me.)

2. I'm always way too enthusiastic when the waiter asks how things are going. Usually things are just fine, but not worthy of a high-pitched "GREAT!!" I'm opening up the floor to hear about your not-a-big-deal but kinda funny social quirks.

3. What's your favorite Thanksgiving episode of a TV show?

4. Your turn! If you've got a question for your fellow _flossers, ask away in the #4 slot. Have a great weekend!

And consider picking up a copy of our new board game, JaLink!

How To Make A Snow Globe Cocktail

What Shows Up When You Google Yourself?

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
