I remember when I was growing up, my Dad, upon my arrival home from school or his arrival from his job, use to greet me with the same question over and over again. He would constantly ask me “What’s new and exciting or highly unusual?” And especially as a teenager, I grew quite weary of his “question” and considered it an annoyance along with his other habit of constantly embarrassing me in front of my friends or my dates.
