I got the following from Mike who in turn got it from Avery. Here’s what you do: Take an mp3 player, put that mug on shuffle, and use the track titles to answer the following questions (again, check Ave for the full list…I’m already married so I didn’t need to answer “what song would you play at your wedding?”) Some of my results were pretty poignant (one of my best friends was murdered several years ago, another is AWOL as he’s dealing with serious addiction issues).
