Breaking the Ice

by Lisa Lipkind Leibow, Author of Smart Women’s Fiction

My three sons came home from the first day of school, itching to tell me tidbits of new classes, new teachers, friends, and more.

Thing 1 ripped open a bag of chips. “In science, to break the ice, the teacher went around the room and had each of us introduce ourselves by saying our name and one interesting fact about ourselves. I raised my hand to go first. ‘I have something interesting! I’m a twin.’ Turns out, that wasn’t all that interesting. Six other kids in the class were twins and one was a quadruplet! Can you believe that?!”

What are the chances of that? Leave a comment. Share one interesting fact that makes you feel unique (or not…). Ha!

    Once I came over to this post I can only see part of it, is this my net browser or the internet web site? Should I reboot?

  10. I think one of your adverts caused my web browser to resize, you may well want to put that on your blacklist.

  11. I believed this was going to be some boring outdated post, however it actually compensated for my time. I will post a hyperlink to this web page http://llleibow.com/blog/2010/10/18/breaking-the-ice on my blog. I’m sure my visitors will find that very useful.

  12. Here’s a comment. Great advice =) Thanks

  13. Great points…I would note that as someone who really doesn’t write on blogs much (in fact, this may be my first post), I don’t think the term “lurker” is very flattering to a non-posting reader. It’s not your fault in the least , but perhaps the blogosphere could come up with a better, non-creepy name for the 90% of us that enjoy reading the content .

  16. This is my first time here. I found so much interesting stuff in your blog particularly it’s discussion. From the tons of feedback on your posts, I assume I’m not the only one having a good time right here!

  17. Reading this post Breaking the Ice | Fodder For Fiction reminds me of my previous roommate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this article to him. Pretty certain he will have a superb read. Thanks for the knowledge you post.

  18. Sorry for my bad english. Thank you so much for your good post. Your post helped me in my college assignment, If you can provide me more details please email me.

  19. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Fantastic read! I have got one suggestion for your webpage. It seems like there are some style sheet troubles when opening a number of web pages in google chrome and opera. It is operating fine in internet explorer. Maybe you can double check that. I have just bookmarked this content on delicious.com to get several more readers to your site.
