Discussion Questions

  1. So how many points do you think Tanner Pearson will get tonight? “Zero” is not an option.
  2. I wonder how Emma Pearson is adapting to the cold. I bet she frolics in it. I bet it’s super cute.
  3. How many times will my parents, who are Penguins fans, text me to tell me exactly what Tanner Pearson is doing in the game, even though I, too, am watching the game? Again, “zero” is not an option.
