No one "needs" to answer any fluff question. If you find it too personal, skip it.

I asked about the injury as it was on my mind as my dd just got injured. No other reason.

Neither

2. What's the worst injury you have had?

I haven't had many actual injuries.  I guess the worst was when I injured my neck and both knees in a car accident about 16 years ago.  That's when I learned that I could stand to sit a bit further back from the steering wheel.  I've had many, many ICU stays but not related to injuries...I guess the worst was the time that my labs were described as "incompatible with life".  

3. What's on the agenda for your weekend?

Yesterday, there were 2 funerals that I should have attended but I decided I coudln't do both.  Attended one funeral, grocery shopped, had my nails done, had my brother over for dinner.  Today, we are going to try to get the tree down finally (or we may just leave it and see how long it takes for the cat to eat the whole thing) and find something to get Joel out of the house, since he was here all day yesterday.  Might go see a movie.

We get annual raises based on merit which is determined from our annual reviews.  (Similar to Bord).  If the state doesn't have money, we don't get raises though.  We also can be promoted to a different rank based on a schedule.  The first one comes after 3 years, and then I think the next one is 4 years or so after that.  Those promotions come with a 10% raise.  I've also gotten raises based on new job responsibilities.

2. What's the worst injury you have had?

Hmm, my two c-sections, if those count?  Other than that, I gashed my lip open when I was a little kid and accidently sliced myself with a razor when I was 12.  

3. What's on the agenda for your weekend?

I didn't do much this weekend, which was fine by me.  I like quiet weekends at home.
