Things You Said That You Should Not Have

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. While we were out in Chicago last month, I made a major gaffe. I was talking to a guy at the Trivia Show whom I'd met earlier that day at the Toy & Game Fair. "So, why didn't you bring your mom tonight?" / [Long Pause.] / "Oh. That was my girlfriend." It still hurts just typing it.

In my defense, this gentleman looked incredible for his age; he was 15 years older than my rough estimate. But still. This has taught me an important lesson — never talk to anybody, ever, about anything besides the weather and where Cliff Lee might sign. Now make me feel better by telling us about something you said that was worse.

2. Who's a random famous person you've seen while traveling? I'll go with the time I bumped into former Israeli sniper Dr. Ruth at Newark Airport.

3. Does your family have any holiday traditions you think the rest of us should adopt? You can pick the holiday: Christmas, St. Patrick's Day, Super Bowl Sunday, whatever.

4. What's everyone reading? Would you recommend it?

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!
