Do you have a good sense of direction? What if you are in a strange city?
Do you chew gum? What is your favorite kind? Can you chew it and walk at the same time? Have you ever left it on the bed post overnight? Did you ever swallow your gum?
Have you made a will? If not, why?
How many tools do you have? Do you know how to use them?
