It’s been a while since I last did something like this. Since then, I’ve gotten a nice influx of followers here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Twitter. Thanks for being here, people. You make this stuff fun.
Anyway, since I’m destined to spend most of the day in my office as I finish up a story outline and peck away at an essay-in-progress, I figured I’d open up the spigot a bit, throw caution to the winds, and launch an open “Ask Dayton” thread.
Now, this isn’t 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 surly dick who likes to growl and snap his way through whatever oddball questions the show’s listeners throw his way. Those queries sometimes but not always begat a response that’s kinda sorta funny. Maybe. While that guy looks like me, sounds like me, and has the same name as me, we’re two totally different people. Honest. He’s from an alternate reality, or something.
Okay, 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 just for you!
(I might let the other me write those.)
Asker’s choice, so far as the topic goes. We can talk about writing, pop culture bullshit, deep thoughtful musings on the duality of man and the blurred line between good and evil, the tragedy of a show like Full House gets a Netflix renewal while Firefly fans are left sleeping in the wet spot, whatever. I reserve the right not to answer anything I deem too personal or inappropriate for this particular venue, but this is a rule I’ve never actually had to invoke. Still, it never hurts to make such things clear up front.
Okey-dokey, then. Who’s got a question?
