Friday Happy Hour: Your Best Field Trips

Original image

Today's 'Friday Happy Hour' questions were deleted after some careless clicking on my part. Not saving my work also played a role. Rather than try to remember what I'd written, let's just go with one question this week. The topic: field trips.

Earlier this week, Brett Savage asked whether we knew our Super Mario Bros. villains from our obscure dinosaurs. In his quiz intro, he touched on his annual field trip to the local museum. This sent us on a field trip tangent.

We had our share of memorable trips—The Land of Make Believe, Turtle Back Zoo, Hershey Park—but my clearest memory is about a trip that wasn't taken. After the bombing of Pan-Am Flight 103, our scheduled field trip to Newark Airport was canceled. When a classmate asked our teacher what one thing had to do with the other, she said, "You might get kidnapped by terrorists." It's a wonder any of us ever flew again.

What was your best field trip?

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!
