My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. If the opportunity to take a relaxing shower presents itself, take it.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. Currently, I'd say my most overused word is yuckadoo (which is a word I stole from my sister) as in, "Charlotte, sweetie, you really need to start remembering to flush the toilet. And, geez, what did your father give you to eat last night? Yuckadoo.”

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. BLTs on buttermilk bread, with very crispy bacon, cheap iceberg lettuce, juicy tomatoes, and no mayo.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. I'd like to be a professional ballerina to see what it's like to dance and move gracefully. Or a trapeze artist, because it looks awesome.

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. Having a sense of humor, an open heart, and appreciation for life.
