If you sat at a nearby table, and watched me interact with people, you'd notice that I like to ask questions. As this little habit of mine has continued in life, I've come to realize there are probably two reasons for this: I've never quite shed my reporting hat from two decades ago and I'm a rather private person (I'll ask about you to keep from saying too much about me).
It is what it is, I guess.
That said, I do love learning things about people. It fascinates me.
I guess this is why, in rather un-blog like fashion, I turn my personal blog over to my readers every Friday...giving them a chance to have their say. I do this, by asking them questions--random, fun, get-to-know-you type questions. And you know what? They actually answer.
We've been doing this pretty much every Friday (with a few, rare exceptions) for the past 2 years and I think we all feel like we know a little about each other because of them. I know that Carol likes to cook and read and bought her dream house last year. I know that Mary volunteers, cooks, crafts, and owns a Harley. I know that Chris loves science fiction, dragons, restoring cars, and makes me laugh. I know that Elizabeth The College Seamstress is a really hard worker and likes tradition.
I could go on, but figure instead, I'll just try the same thing here, today...
Ready? Here goes:
1) What was the first concert you ever saw? Who did you go with?
2) What do you do in your current life that makes you feel young?
3) What's the strangest food you've ever eaten?
4) What was your first paying job?
