A. Here's what I put in my high school yearbook, and I do believe it's what I'd still put today: Walk slowly; all you can ever come to is yourself.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. That would be Doing A Headstand. Yep, I've been scared of that particular feat all my life, have never done one, and I've decided to come clean. So there you have it.

Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?

A. The boy in My Side of the Mountain.

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. Batman, the only human superhero.
