My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. If it's worth doing, it's worth trying to do it better the next time.
Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?
A. James Bond is pretty cool. So are Robert B. Parker's Spenser, though, and Ross Macdonald's Lew Archer. And Harry Potter. And...this could take a while. Let's just settle on Atticus Finch (To Kill a Mockingbird) for now.
Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. Right where I am, on the Flying M Ranch. Though Paris would be okay, too.
Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
A. My teenage son and I just participated in PizzaQuest 2011, an event that we made up. Pizza from a different source for dinner for six nights straight, comparing and contrasting. Having survived that, I think pizza would have to be up there. But that might mean giving up chocolate (and, by extension, chocolate chip cookies). Hmmm... going to have to think on this a while.
Q. What do you regret most?
A. The answer to "What are your most overused words or phrases?".
