Ice Breaker – TV Sitcom Family

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:  If you could be the member of a TV sitcom family, which family would it be?  (And why?)

My Answer:  The Huxtables (from The Cosby Show).  This wasn’t the perfect family, but they always seemed to be heading in the right direction by the end of each episode.  I love the relationship between Cliff and Claire.  They didn’t always see eye to eye, but they absolutely adored one another.  Besides, I think Theo could have used a brother in the house with all those sisters.

(By the way, I am very thankful for the family I did grow up in.  It wasn’t perfect, but I wouldn’t change it for the world.)

Answer this week’s ice breaker question by leaving a comment. I look forward to reading your response! (As always, feel free to share links.) And keep STRETCHING!
