My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Benjamin Constable
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Never say with eight words what you can say with nine. I don't really do mottos.

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. I admire all manner of historical and mythical figures but I don't particularly identify with any of them.

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

A. Dancing. I would be an amazing dancer. All kind of dancing. Tap, tango, breakdancing, everything. I'd be the don of all things dance. For the moment I don't really dance. If you asked me tomorrow the answer might well be different.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. I don't really think like that. I'd love to meet anybody from history and I'm sure I'd have loads of questions and comedy advice like never travel on a ship called Titanic but choosing one person and not another doesn't seem interesting to me.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. When people don't do what they say.
