Ice Breaker – Something New

something new

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.

Each week on The Stretched Blog, I 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.

(I’m always looking for Ice Breaker question ideas.  If you have an idea, send me an email at  If I use your question, I’ll give you credit and share your links.)

Question:  When was the last time you tried something new?

My Answer:  I’m not one to try too many new things.  I like the same old, same old.  I don’t like change.  So trying something new requires a bit of courage for me to get outside my comfort zone.  The last time I tried something new was Wednesday afternoon.  I usually travel home the same way Western Pennsylvania which is where my wife was born.  We were in Latrobe, PA for a funeral (see yesterday’s post), and I took a different way home for the first hour plus of the trip.  It was nice to see new scenery and to enjoy the rolling hills along the back country road.  Maybe trying something new from time to time isn’t such a bad thing.
