I’m going to turn the tables on this prompt and name five things I do not like to be asked by a stranger. It doesn’t bother me now but when a young bride at many cocktail parties in the late 60s or 70s, I disliked it–partly of course because I never seemed to have the right answer.
1. Do you work?
2. What church do you belong to?
3. Do you have kids?
4. Where are you from?
5. You don’t want a drink – coffee? Tea?
