Things You've Conditioned Your Pet To Do

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. I like to chew gum when walking the dog. At this point, simply opening the cabinet where the gum is incites a "WE'RE GOING ON A WALK!" happy dog dance. Unfortunately, the same cabinet is where we keep the black cardamom and take-out menus. What are some of the weird things -- intentionally or not -- you've conditioned your pet to do?

2. If the you of today could sit down with the 10/22/2000-version of yourself, what's the one thing you didn't do that you'd tell your younger self he/she must? (Examples: Transfer, take that trip, invite so-and-so to your wedding, quit sniffing glue. Everyone could say "Hold onto that Apple stock" or "Go heavy on the Patriots next season," so let's avoid those answers today.)

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

4. What's your all-time favorite live album?

While we're on the subject of fun games and great gift ideas (we're not?), let me slip in a quick plug for Split Decision, our brand new trivia game. If you use the code SPLITDECISION before checkout, you'll get 10% off. This is the only game I'll beg you to buy this year. Thanks for the support and 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!
