Since today or tomorrow is the first day of fall in the Northern Hemisphere depending on the time zone, and the first day of spring in the Southern Hemisphere:
Once again, it's time for that exciting opportunity to ASK ROGER ANYTHING. This does two things: it gives you the opportunity to make my life miserable by forcing me to respond to queries, whether they be mundane or profound. And I learn something new about you.
I expect that certain people will retaliate, or rather respond, because, when they've asked the question, I try to ask them whatever happens to be on my mind.

Sample answer #1: I had this good friend for about a decade, then suddenly we don't talk. What the heck happened?
Sample question #2: Toilet paper: over or under?
Sample answer #2: I really don't care.
Well, you get the idea. You may pose the questions in the comment section of this here blog or e-mail me, if you're the shy type.
