The Ice Breaker

I didn’t realize she was going to tell me something so personal!

Honestly what was she thinking? It was an ice breaker, you know those silly games that we start each zoom meeting with? “If you could be anywhere in the world where would you be? Do you prefer ice cream or cake? Who is your celebrity crush?” We start every meeting with these prompts and today was no different. It was my turn to lead the meeting and I asked “would you rather go to Disneyland or Disneyworld”? When it came to her turn she responded “I dont know, I haven’t been to either. Growing up my family restricted us from going to those places, they said it was spawned by the devil, that evil was among those who went to places like that. I grew up in a religious cult, prohibited to watch tv, listen to the radio, go to a proper school….even dream of places like Disney.” I mean what was I supposed to say to that? How was I supposed to know start talking about our year end budget?
