RETURN DIRECTIONS (copied verbatim)

Feel free to do this even if I was rude enough not to tag you in the note itself!Now, here's what you're supposed to do, if you want to:
Copy and paste this into a new note
Erase my answers and type in your answers
Add your own question/s if you want to
Tag me back so I can read your lists

The theory is that each of us will learn a lot of little facts (some previously unknown) about our friends and loved ones. If nothing else, the exercise will stave off the boredom and ennui for another 20 minutes or so.
