My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Avoid making excuses or standing in long lines.
Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. Rome! Or back in Punta Cana on my honeymood. Or way back, in first grade, listening to my favorite teacher read a book.
Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
A. McDonald's French fries.
Q. What’s your greatest flaw?
A. I tend to let my nutty imagination override a pretty stable reality. Which is a fancy way of saying, I can often invent problems that aren't even remotely possible in the real world.
Q. With whom in history do you most identify?
A. Mark Twain. Yes, I'm serious. I grew up near where he lived and loved to visit his house. It felt so familiar to me.
