What's the Most Amazing Story About Your School?


On Fridays, we ask a series of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. Answer one, answer all, or ask your own question. On to this week's topics...

1. What's one amazing fact or story about your school? Did someone famous (or infamous) go there with you? Was it the setting for an important moment in history, or a sitcom? Was the old mascot something shockingly offensive? You can pick your college, high school, a school where you teach, whatever. 

2. I think about this almost every day: I'm very thankful we didn't have social media when I was growing up in the dark ages of the '90s. You don't have to point them out, but are there things you've posted or things about you somewhere online that you wish would disappear?

3. Did you (or your kids) ever skip a grade? If you could do it again, would you?

4. Your turn! If you've got a question for the group, ask away. Have a great weekend!

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!
