What Part of Your Job Do You Hate Most?

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. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. In my 7th grade English class, we were assigned pen pals from the Russian city of Chelyabinsk. We must have gotten a late start, because we only exchanged letters once. (I guess calling us "pals" was a stretch.) Did you keep in touch with a pen pal? Did you ever meet in person?


2. If you could go back and relive one weekend of your life, which weekend would you choose? Would you change anything?


3. Let's pretend you're a high school senior trying to decide where to go to college. Now let's pretend you can only apply to fictional colleges from movies, books and TV shows. What would be your top choice? Your safety school?


4. In the interest of making your life slightly better, your boss says you can eliminate one responsibility from your current job. What would it be?

Last week I asked for suggestions for questions, which I'll be using for the next two Friday Happy Hours (paternity leave starts next week). Many thanks for the great ideas! 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!
