Friday 5 for July 24: Scattergories, Part 10!

Hello, and welcome to this week’s Friday 5! Please copy these questions to your webspace. Answer the questions there; then leave a comment below so we’ll all know where to check out your responses. Please don’t forget to link us from your website!

This week’s 5 is inspired by the party game Scattergories, in which players have to think of items, all beginning with the same letter, in several categories. For example, if the die is rolled and shows the letter G, players might have to name a soft drink, a farm animal, a river, and a U.S. President, all beginning with G. Valid answers might be Gatorade, goat, Green River (Washington), and Grant.

First, go to this nifty online random-letter generator. Set the “number of random letter sequences to generate” to 1. Set the “length of each random letter sequence” to 1. Leave the “letters to choose from” how it is and click the button. You’ll get a rather non-dramatic one letter. Use that letter to begin all your answers to the 5 questions below. If you’d like to avoid difficult letters, feel free to change the “letters to choose from” list. I’ll only judge you a little bit. 🙂

Alternately, if you find that boring, you could set the “length of each random letter sequence” to 5, thereby giving you five letters, a different one for each question.

Wow! This is our tenth year doing this!

Please answer these questions with an answer whose initial is the letter you rolled!

  1. What’s something in your pantry, beginning with the letter?
  2. What’s something in your car, beginning with the letter?
  3. What’s something you miss, beginning with the letter?
  4. What’s a character trait you admire but lack, beginning with the letter?
  5. What’s a regular inconvenience, beginning with the letter?

Thanks for participating, and have an UBMOD* weekend!
