Ice Breaker – Debate
Each week on The Stretched Blog, we ask an ice breaker question. The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community. I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments. While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.
This week’s question is inspired by Wednesday nights presidential debate. While I’m not interested in getting too political here on the blog, I think debate is actually one of the few fairly healthy things left in the whole election process (as long as the candidates can stick to the rules of the debate). As I was reflecting on this week’s debate, I started thinking that there are many fun things that we enjoy debating in our culture today. Surely, this could be a fun ice breaker question for this week. So as you read and respond to this week’s question add your position on the “fun” debates that others provide in the comments.
Question: Coke or Pepsi? McDonald’s or Burger King? What fun things can we debate? And where do you stand in these fun debates?
My Answer: Cubs or White Sox? This was one of the first debates that I can remember having as a kid. I grew up on the western side of Chicago in the Wheaton, IL area. This was clearly Cubs territory. So I cheered for the Cubs.
As for Coke or Pepsi? I would probably go with Coke although I have to stay away from caffeine now thanks to my migraine headaches. McDonald’s or Burger King? This was a debate when I was a kid. I probably would have voted for McDonald’s back then. Now, I rarely do fast food and if I do…I go with Chick-Fil-A.
There you have it – my answer. Now, it’s your turn. Answer this week’s ice breaker question by leaving a comment. I look forward to reading your response!
