This Side of Salvation by Jeri Smith-Ready
My Life in 8 Words
Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?
A. If you mean physical trait, it’s probably my smile. I must have a weird face, because whenever I’m not smiling, people ask if I’m upset. Nine times out of ten, I’m just thinking. Then they insist I must be annoyed at something, and eventually it becomes true. If you mean personality trait, people usually say I’m incredibly nice. I’m proud of this, because it means I’ve totally fooled 99% of those who’ve met me.
Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
A. When people name their pet peeves and it turns out to be something that I do.
Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?
A. It would be cool to be a cat for a while. I’d get to stay up all night, see in the dark, get fed and petted for doing pretty much nothing.
Q. What’s your best quality?
A. I had to consult my husband on this one, and he said it’s that I don’t take myself too seriously.
