What Was Your Summer Job?

Original image

Every Friday, 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. Very casual. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. Summer is here, and millions of students are starting the summer jobs they'll remember for the rest of their lives. What's the most interesting summer work experience on your resume?

2. Have you ever gotten someone's autograph (and kept it)? My grandfather, who passed away when I was one, gave me a baseball signed by Mickey Mantle. A few years later, I wanted to sign it, too. My cursive wasn't too good, so now there's Mickey Mantle's sig, a note from my grandfather, and a bunch of red circles.

3. How'd you like to name my baby? No, we're not selling the naming rights (though if you read that first sentence and thought we were selling the naming rights and were considering making an offer, go ahead). My wife and I like a number of female names, but if it's a boy, we might just stick with Baby Boy English. So, armchair baby namers, got any ideas? In case it helps, my wife's name is Ellen, our almost-two-year-old is Charlotte, and our dog is Bailey.

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!
