The Day After Thursday, The Number After Four

I'm trying to find a more creative way to say It's Friday Five Time.

If you...

1. ...owned a restaurant, what kind of food would you serve?
All appetizers, all the time. Buffalo Wings, artichoke dip, mozzerella sticks, those onion flower things, mini shish kebabs, garlic fries, egg rolls, etc. If it's an appetizer, it will be there. And you can order sample sizes or come up with combo platters of your own or have dinner sized portions.

2. ...owned a small store, what kind of merchandise would you sell?
Fountain pens, dip pens, paper, stationery, and fancy things to write in and with. And of course our store would feature the Store Dog, Scout, and each customer would get a friendly tail wag as they came in. Regular customers would be greeted enthusiastically, while other customers could expect a gentle head nudge in case they wanted a dog to pet.

3. ...wrote a book, what genre would it be?
General literary fiction

4. ...ran a school, what would you teach?
Reading and writing. On the reading side, everything from basic literacy to speed reading to advanced literary analysis. On the writing side, I would emphasize writing fundamentals because the average American's writing skills are so poor. My goal would be to not only build skill but inspire confindence in writing. And I would also branch out into various types of writing like business and technical writing, fiction writing, poetry, and creative non-fiction. Anything you ever wanted to know and discuss about reading and writing, that would be my school.

5. ...recorded an album, what kind of music would be on it?
Assuming I was magically given massive amounts of talent, it would probably be contemporary folk music. If I weren't given that talent, I'd spare the world and record one of those compilation albums you see on late night tv, like the 4 disc "Back to the 80's" set.
