Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?
A. Perfect happiness? If it exists, I think it's less of a situation and more of a mental state. I don't think anyone, no matter what, can find perfect happiness until they understand exactly who they are and how every little thing they do can effect the world around them. I think perfect happiness would be a world where everyone is constantly striving to understand everyone else.
Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
A. The use of double negatives or the misuse of the words "lay" and lie".
