It’s been a bit since the last time I did this, and since it’s something of a quiet Friday afternoon and I’m alternating between the story-in-progress and a few other things, to say nothing of having received an influx of followers here as well as over at Facebook and Twitter, why not? Amirite?
This little exercise is not to be confused with the “Ask Dayton” bit that I do every so often over at the G&T Show. The guy who answers those queries is a rather curmudgeonly fellow who likes to growl and snap his way through all sorts of oddball questions the show’s listeners like to throw at him, and which sometimes but not always begets a response that’s kinda sorta funny. Maybe. Sure, that guy looks like me, sounds like me, and has the same name as me, but we’re two totally different people. Honest. He’s like a mirror universe doppelgänger, but as is the case with however many of me there are within all of the countless parallel realities believed to exist, he can’t grow a decent goatee to save his ass.
All right, then, here’s the deal: 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 that 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 invoke it, but it never hurts to make such things clear up front.
Okey-dokey, then. Who’s got a question?
