Answer #17. "Be You"

April 2, 2020, Steve's Stay-at-Home Coronavirus Quiz

SPOILER ALERT

If have not read Quiz #17. “Be You” just yet, you’re about to read the answer to the “What did NOT happen?” question from that quiz.


Here’s the answer:

What did NOT happen?

A. Having worked with him on various work projects, I'm friends with the Phillie Phanatic.  Before sending out today’s quiz, I sent a draft copy to him. He sent me an email back, “Be You!  Love it! Don’t know how, don’t know when, but baseball will be back;” 

B. In Wednesday’s quiz, I discussed Understandably, a great daily newsletter from Bill Murphy Jr.  I sent a copy of Wednesday’s quiz to Murphy. He filled it out and we traded emails. He liked my work with Google forms and asked how I sent out the quiz; 

C. Wednesday night, I looked into signing up for Substack, the email newsletter service that Murphy uses for Understandably;  

D. This morning, I sent a DM to PJ Vogt, the co-host of the Reply All podcast, telling him that I’d discussed his fantastic podcast, “The Case of the MIssing Hit” in Sunday’s quiz; 

E. Sara has a quote of the day that she posts to the kitchen window above the sink. Today's quote reads, “Action binds anxiety.”  If you’re feeling anxious--and who isn’t these days--do something. Take concrete steps that are comfortable and routine. Return to your strengths. Be you. 

I have worked with the Phanatic on different projects and I was thinking of him on what should have been Opening Day, but I did not send him a draft of the quiz. I did email him the finished product and he responded, “This is certainly a strange thing to be going through. When baseball comes back it will mean the world is getting back to normal. Hopefully soon! Be well -”
