What's the Strangest Thing in Your Wallet?

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. What's one trait you really hope your kids inherit from you? If you already have kids, tell us about something you're glad (or not glad) they got from you. My daughter seems to share my ability to sleep through anything. Time will tell whether she can also decipher obscure acronyms.

2. I've asked this question before, but since the responses were enjoyable, I'll ask again:

I love the Seinfeld episode where Jerry goes through the contents of George's gigantic wallet ("Show this card at any participating Orlando-area Exxon station to get your free "˜Save the Tiger' poster.") While I'm not storing any Sweet & Low with my credit cards, I do carry some non-essentials: a one-way Chatham, NJ-to-Penn Station train ticket from 2004; half of an expired Costco card (the half without the metallic strip); and a red/green "More please"/"I'm full" card from the Texas de Brazil steakhouse in Aruba. Just in case.

How about you? What's the weirdest (or oldest) thing you're carrying around in your wallet or purse?

3. In all your movie-going years, what film were you most excited to go see on opening night? Did it live up to the hype?

4. If you could invite one character from any novel to come stay with you for a long weekend, who would you choose? What would you guys do?

Have a great weekend!

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!
