What Was Your Summer Job?

Jason English

Every Friday, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. Very casual. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. Summer is here, and millions of students are starting the summer jobs they'll remember for the rest of their lives. What's the most interesting summer work experience on your resume?

2. Have you ever gotten someone's autograph (and kept it)? My grandfather, who passed away when I was one, gave me a baseball signed by Mickey Mantle. A few years later, I wanted to sign it, too. My cursive wasn't too good, so now there's Mickey Mantle's sig, a note from my grandfather, and a bunch of red circles.

3. How'd you like to name my baby? No, we're not selling the naming rights (though if you read that first sentence and thought we were selling the naming rights and were considering making an offer, go ahead). My wife and I like a number of female names, but if it's a boy, we might just stick with Baby Boy English. So, armchair baby namers, got any ideas? In case it helps, my wife's name is Ellen, our almost-two-year-old is Charlotte, and our dog is Bailey.
