My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Be kind to yourself. (My mom says it to me all the time, possibly because she knows I need permission.)
Q. What’s your greatest flaw?
A. According to me: inability to sleep like a normal human being i.e. when I'm tired. According to my husband: propensity to throw away important documents if they happen to look too much like junk mail.
Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. I'm sitting on the couch with my laptop, my husband is beside me watching hockey, and my kids are sleeping peacefully in their beds. Add a pound of dark chocolate and that's heaven.
Q. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?
A. Inside Tina Fey's brain.
Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?
A. I'd be my husband, because then I'd still be us, but I wouldn't have to be me. It's complicated.
