It’s November 25, 2016. It’s the day after Thanksgiving, aka Black Friday, and time for this week’s edition of 20 Questions Friday.
All I do is put 20 questions out there. All you do is read them, answer them if you wish, and hopefully both of us feel better after it’s over.
Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend.
— Are you holiday shopping today? Why?
— If people stopped showing up at stores on Thanksgiving night, would stores that open on Thanksgiving night still open on Thanksgiving night?
— Are you as surprised as I am that stores haven’t started opening on Christmas Day yet?
— Just askin’ – did Mike Pence actually pay for those “Hamilton” tickets? Or, if they were freebies, isn’t the cast expressing itself a small price to pay for seeing the show?
— How’s that “Hamilton” boycott the Trump dolts called after last Friday going?
— I understand that there’s strong feeling about Common Core. But wouldn’t it have been nice if the subject came up during one of the presidential debates instead of, say, one more question about Hillary Clinton’s e-mails?
— Is it possible that Education Secretary-designate Betsy DeVos wants to teach the nation’s kids English literature by having them see what Oliver Twist’s life was really like?
— Do you find it hard to figure out how warmly to dress this time of year?
— Is it me, or are people driving worse since the election?
— Why do you think Jill Stein is the force behind the proposed review of paper ballots in Michigan, Wisconsin and, maybe, Pennsylvania?
— When do you think Jill Stein realized that she might go down in history as the Ralph Nader of 2016?
— Does anybody make mince pies anymore?
— Would Democrats be better off spending their money trying to elect Foster Campbell to the U.S. Senate from Louisiana instead of donating to a long-shot effort to reverse the presidential election?
— Why is a dog show such a big thing to watch on Thanksgiving Day?
— Are supermarkets crowded the day after Thanksgiving?
— Will the Colombia-FARC deal stick this time?
— Do you think all the billionaires Trump seems to be employing for his cabinet secretly needed the jobs?
— Have you read Bruce Springsteen’s terrific autobiography, “Born to Run”?
— Is that all there is? (twelfth in a series of song-title questions)
— Have you started playing holiday music yet?
