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. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
A. Alexander Fleming. I'm fascinated with scientific discoveries. They're the most incredible mix of creativity and discipline and genius and dumb luck.
I guess I'd ask him what kind of sandwich he left out. I'd like to think we owe the discovery of penicillin to a good old PB&J, but he was Scottish so I think it was more likely some gnarly cheese and marmite thing. Oh well.
Q. What’s your best quality?
A. I'm pretty good at do-overs, both giving them and taking them.
Q. What is your greatest achievement?
A. Surviving childbirth, then going on to really love being a mother. I had my doubts about both beforehand.
Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
A. People who take themselves too seriously.
