Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. What you lose in the whirlygig, you get back in the ding dong.

Q. What do you regret most?

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Third base for the Boston Red Sox....no doubt.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. Beard?

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
