Great Conversation

Just added to my list of favorite things is this new product called TableTopics. I just got them last weekend and think they are such a fabulous idea! In general, I don't think we (as a society) engage in great, stimulating conversation often enough. It really is a skill, and I am hoping to teach my kids (and maybe even my husband) to value a great conversation. We are planning to use them around the dinner table to provide some topics besides what did you do at school today? Some of the questions are "what do you complain about more than anything else?", "if you only had 5 more years to live would you change anything about your life?", "would you choose to be the worst player on a winning team or the best player on a losing team?", "has anything bad ever happened to you that turned out to be for the best?" I got the original edition, but some other editions are family, couples, teen, and girls night out.

I SO have to get that! Perfect for family & my classroom. I ask a question of the day, and these would be awesome.
Thanks--I have no idea how you find out about this stuff, but I will enjoy it.
