What Were Your Baby Teeth Worth?

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. I just picked up the new issue of our sister publication, The Week. I happened to open up to this statistic: "The average sum left under a child's pillow in exchange for a lost baby tooth has dropped to $2.60 this year, from $3 last year." Even the Tooth Fairy is cutting back! Though that sounds like $1.60 more than I ever got. What was the going rate for baby teeth in your house?

3. Have you ever taken a class online? Did you have a good experience? Did you learn as much as you would have in a traditional classroom?

4. Time for another edition of What Are You Reading? Do 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!
