What Are You Saving for a Special Occasion?

Original image

On Fridays, 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. My wife and I brought back some wine from our trip to California in 2007. We've been saving the last few bottles for a special occasion, but I'm not sure how special said occasion will have to be. Since this special occasion policy was enacted, we've had two children, moved to a new house, hosted several holidays and out-of-town guests, and stopped our jerky neighbor from depositing his dog's waste in our garbage cans. (Does it get more special than that?) Is there anything in your life that you are (or were) saving for a special occasion?

2. Growing up, I had stints working for both my parents' companies. I delivered things and answered phones and used those same phones to cold call people who were never happy to chat. But we all still liked each other afterwards. Did you ever work with your parents? How'd that go?

3. As we march into spring, Bailey and I will soon be extending our nightly dog walks. That means I need more audio content to keep me entertained. Can I get some audiobook suggestions?

4. What were you doing ten years ago this month? What would the 2001 you think about what you're up to today?

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!
