Here is the eagerly awaited post of conversation starting questions. I hope you enjoy them!
  1. What was your favorite childhood toy?  Maybe your loved one will talk to you about his Pooh blanket that he carried around until it was in shreds.  Maybe your wife grew up on Army bases and played with G.I. Joe instead of Barbies.
  2. Where has been your favorite place to travel?
  3. What memory sticks while taking a vacation?  Did you fall off of a large step in a Jordanian landmark?  Did you get hit by a car while crossing a street in China?  Did you hide Easter Eggs in the snow on a mountain in Germany?

  5. What movie could you watch time and time again and never tire of?  When did you first see it?
  6. What jokes make you laugh any time you hear them?  Is it the muffin joke?  That one has to be told JUST RIGHT.
  7. What is your guilty pleasure song?  You know every single word but God forbid you let the general public every hear you singing it.  That right is only for your shower or in the car.
