So, what do you do for fun?

If I had a dollar for every time I was asked this.

I must not look like a fun person.

What business is it of yours what I do for fun? What if fun is buying A Confederacy of Dunces at a thrift store and settling down with a glass of wine to read it? (Why is wine so expensive?)

What if fun is babysitting my nephew? What if fun is staying late at work to enjoy late-night conversation with my otherwise-busy bosses?

So, what do you do for fun?

Variations on this refrain include Don't you ever get out? Don't you have a life?


I ask you: Is this the look of a person who doesn't have any fun? When is the last time you wore a Zebra print shirt?

Don't you think reading to this perfect child would be fun?

Reading to your nephew in a Zebra print shirt. Top that.

The red bead necklace is what looks like fun.

Beads are underrated.

I'm hoping to start a trend of bead wearing in Idaho. Which is equivalent to trying to get Canyon County to vote Democrat.

Katy - I just saw this! How did I miss it before?! :] You are definitely a fun person. I'm betting the people asking are the ones who aren't fun. (Although - I must say that I personally did not have fun reading Confederacy fo Dunces - but that's just me.)

Speaking of fun . . . am I the only (by the way - this always a risky way to begin a question) who takes some measure of enjoyment out of trying to pronounce the word verifications that always appear at the bottome of these comment pages? For example: qualiquibif for "qlyqbf" or poojpoogaf for "pujpgaf."
