On Fridays, we ask a series of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. Answer one, answer all, or ask your own question. On to this week's topics...

1. Days before I left for college in August 1997, I purchased a black laundry basket from Linens 'n Things along with some of those sheets made out of t-shirts. I just realized that laundry basket is still in rotation, albeit in a downgraded "shoot, all the good laundry baskets are full" role. What's the oldest thing you own and still use? If you don't have a good answer for that one, what's the oldest thing you own?

2. Here's a question sent in by reader Anna: "I'm about to graduate high school. What's one piece of advice you wish someone had given you on the day you graduated?"

3. Today is Take Your Dog to Work Day. Anybody celebrating? Any horror stories about pets in the workplace you want to share?

4. Your turn! If you've got a question for the group, ask it here. Have a great weekend!
