Friday Five: Foods Writers Are Most Likely To Eat
Let me start this post by saying I have strange dreams. Okay. Now you can read on.

For example, they might have surveyed a group of people and asked them to name items most commonly associated with Easter. The family members then take it in turns to guess the responses. Points are awarded for not only the correct answers but how popular the answer was in the survey. So if 80 out of the 100 surveyed answered eggs, and a family member guessed eggs, they win the round.
