Suzy and I show our age by watching Jeopardy most nights. Times have changed. Jeopardy is just about the only show we watch on Network news except for sports and the news. Somehow entertainment for us has moved to streaming networks such as BritBox. I still love movies, but Covid has put a real damper on going to the Theatre and eating popcorn. But I divert.

The thing about Jeopardy is it’s not about the answers, but the questions. There is a little bit of life in this reversal. We often focus so much on getting the answers to life right, we forget to ask the right questions. We know the answers, but we can’t get the question right.

Something to think about.

  1. I am thinking about it; may come up with a question or an answer!?!
    Life is very different these days.

  2. We’re right with you two on the Jeopardy watching obsession, even taping it when we are away. Good post with a lot of food for thought about questions and answers.
