At my job they're a big fan of "getting to know you" games which immediately if you're me sends up a red flag that the human knot might be right around the corner. And I don't know about you, but I hate the human knot. The human knot has never been fun. You either get people who are A. bored and just don't want to do it, and thus cheat or B. are so incredibly INSISTENT THAT YOU PLAY THE GAME THE RIGHT WAY that it's horrible C. With your hand in between a stranger's legs.
Luckily, the human knot has never made an appearance at my job, yet. However, a few days ago we did have to play "a game" where we thought of groups of people who were "our people." Now this is a game that I can get behind - because man do I like my people and dislike my non-people (in general, I think it's fair to say, I'm a non-people person).
Here is a bit of a list of my people:
My people are not sock people - and by that I mean, they are people who don't like socks. I have nothing against those that like sock puppet-people or people made of socks (although I also wouldn't classify either group as my people.
My people are blogging people.
My people see climate change as "the threat we face" and not as "that thing scientists are making up to steal my money."
My people have an awareness about the food they eat.
My people enjoy baked goods (either baking them or eating them).
My people adore animals.
My people are not Drinking to get Drunk people.
And my people write because they have too much to say.
Who are your people?
