    Thanks for this great series. It’s such a great learning tool–and fun.

    I hope you’ll set aside a special theme for the week of November 5. Maybe something along the lines of birthdays, anniversaries, or milestones?

    “Coming out” (of the closet) is a theme I don’t think has come up, at least not in a while.

    “Announcing a pregnancy”

    “Breaking the news of a death” (which is a subset of “delivering bad news”, but a very particular subset)

    “Ordering a hit”

    Thanks for your wisdom, insights and dedication to GITS.

    Happy 2013!

    I’m thinking “conversations in tight places”… a la “Riding in Cars with Boys”… Drew Barrymore’s 2001 flick.

  4. sgneasbitt says:

    I’ll second the BIG THANKS to you, Scott, for your generosity all year.

  5. Meeting with the Mentor, one-scene characters
