Your Grandmother’s Census

I went to a session at SLA 2009 entitled something like “2010: Not Your Grandmother’s Census.” Well, it was not as interesting as I had hoped it would be. I also pondered what MY grandmother might ask on a census…

  1. Are you hungry? You look hungry.
  2. Are you tired? You look good. But you look tired. Are you hungry?
  3. Did you eat already? I made you something. Are you hungry?
  4. Did you drink an ice cold drink too fast? You shouldn’t do that. Are you hungry?
  5. In 1920 we lived at 225 Roebling Street. Are you hungry?
  6. That boy/girl is fine for now, but later, you want to marry that doctor, don’t you?
  7. Aunt Rose used to eat fried eggs right out of the frying pan. Are you hungry?
