So many things could go wrong with this. A) What if I go too serious & kill the mood? B) What if I go funny & no one laughs? C) What if I choose something hip & obscure & NO ONE GETS IT?!

I just have so many thoughts. Why couldn’t they ask my favorite movie? (Titanic) Or the classic favorite color question? (Purple) I even prefer the hidden talent one because HELLO I am good at everything.

This could really change my peer’s perception of me. Right now I think I’m straddling the cute, quirky, neurotic line & I would like to ride that wave as long as possible.

Please advise or I will end up saying “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened” or something.

    As for what to say, depends on the populationassistive audience and how comfortable you are with your Boss.
    I wouldn’t worry too much about what your peers think on this one.
