The day’s activities call for me to be not all that far from my computer today (writing as well as day job stuff), I don’t see the harm in adding a new “Ask Dayton” open thread to the mix. This shouldn’t be confused with the “Ask Dayton” bit I’ve got going over at the G&T Show, as that’s largely about a curmudgeonly character who barks and snaps his way through all sorts of oddball questions and fanciful queries the askers hope will trip him up, but which usually results in something kinda sorta approaching the realm of “humor.” Even though that dude looks like me, sounds like me, and has the same name as me, we’re two totally different people. He’s sort of like a mirror universe counterpart, except that he–as is the case however many of me there are within all of the countless parallel realities believed to exist–can’t grow a decent goatee to save his ass.
So, here’s the deal, for anyone interested: Ask me anything, if you’re so inclined, and I’ll do my best to provide a brief yet thoughtful answer. If I can’t conjure such a reply, you’ll instead receive a wise-assed comment, created especially for you!
(Though likely written by the other guy. I’m the nice one, remember.)
Asker’s choice, so far as the topic goes, though I reserve the right not to answer anything I deem too personal or inappropriate for this particular venue. Despite setting up this rule, I’ve never actually had to enforce it, but it never hurts to make such things clear up front.
Okey-dokey, then. Who’s got a question?
