Gathering the Rarely Asked Questions of 2017

I can't believe it's been five years since I asked people to look at my RAQ. This was an annual highlight of the Bathroom Monologues calendar, and I'm resurrecting it in 2017.

What is the RAQ, you ask?

Well my birthday is September 4th. Up until Friday, September 1st, I'm asking you to ask me questions that you've never asked anyone else. These are the Rarely Asked Questions.

Examples include:

-What is the vapor point of extra virgin olive oil?

-If an 80's cartoon villain had to be your aunt, who would you pick?

-If he wants to avoid the conductor and skip the fare, what is the best time for a Mummy to hop the Baltimore light rail?

You can ask as many questions as you like, as long as they're unique. What you don't normally ask anyone else is entirely up to you. Please leave your mysteries and queries in the Comments section of this post.

I'll compile every question and answer at least one per person on September 4th - my birthday.  That's how I like to celebrate.


  1. What is your favorite kind of roof?

  2. Which Firefly character would you want reincarnated into your pet cat? The one who would be watching you sleeping?

  3. Intriguing. I will give it some thought and get back to you. In the interim: What colour is your mind, and does it attract prejudice?

  4. So, you find the love of your life, the absolute most perfect match possible for you.

    Problem is, their head is a giant, disgusting insect or arachnid.

    What kind of creepy crawly would be least terrible for this person to have for a head?

  5. In several languages, (such as in French, pomme de terre) a potato is an earth-apple. So what would be fire-apples, water-apples, and air-apples?

    If you could spend a year living with any alien species, which would it be and why? Anything you would most want to see/participate in/eat during your visit? Assume non-prohibitive space travel, and either a hospitable environment or access to comfortable adaptive gear.

    What's a question that you wish were part of standard small-talk?

  6. Can you crack an egg without it exploding and if so how?

  7. What color is the number 7 to you?

  8. What's the last thing you hung on a doorknob?

  9. If you were locked in a jail cell with three zombies, a plastic hanger, two pieces of watermelon bubble gum, and a roll of duct tape with only four feet remaining, how would you escape?
