[Update] Well, this was fun for me when the mouse was playing my silly game, but that doesn’t look to be hooking any other fish this afternoon or evening. The people have spoken, and I will not attempt such sordid types of posts in the future. Feel free to continue the conversation below if you came late to the party, but I’ll probably go off an get myself all hot and bothered getting back to reading Delta of Venus (or listening to Kristy Thirsk, or watching some depressing film like Dangerous Liaisons, or looking at racy-but tame pictures in weird internet places like Pinterest), so it might be a while before I respond.
Okay… Last night’s attempt was spectacularly uneventful as a “live” event. In other words — “Epic Fail”.
But, seeing as I haven’t anything planned for much of the afternoon and evening today, I thought I’d just be stupid and try again as an all-day affair. I’ll keep it up until I hit the pillows, time permitting. I’m not going to promise to respond immediately, as I do have things like cooking meals to attend to, but I will interact in the comments below as I am able.
Keep in mind: this isn’t just about me. It’s your opportunity to share stuff you might not normally blog about here, away from your typical readers.
There is a risk if you participate. If you ask me a question, or dare me to do something, or wanna play a verbal variant of “Truth and Lies”/”Never have I ever…” (where you guess if a statement is true/false), then you have to be a good sport and let me turn the tables on you and make you do the same. Beware: I have little shame and the only thing I’ll promise to hide is personally identifiable deets to protect my privacy. I occasionally am good at asking difficult questions in return. We’ll see how I fare if anyone plays.
- Share one secret or factoid about yourself that I might not otherwise find out about you on my own. If you do, you get a useless point and I do not.
- Ask me a specific question, no matter how embarrassing it might be. If I refuse to answer, you get a useless point in your column and don’t have to respond in kind. If I answer, I get a point and I get to ask you a question of my choosing. If you don’t answer, I get a useless point and you lose a point.
- You can ask me to tell three things, only one of them is the truth. You get two guesses as to which is the truth. If you guess right the first time, you get two useless points, the second guess is worth one useless point. You guess right on the third attempt and you lose a useless point.
- You can dare me to do something, but it has to be reasonable. If I do it, I get two useless points. If not, you get two useless points.
Person with the most useless points “wins”.
If this fails (as I expect it will), it will be the swan song of this type of activity here. If not… well, let’s not be overoptimistic, okay?
