Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Don't sweat the small stuff!" I'm also a fan of: "Do crazy things with your hair while you still have hair to do it with."

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. I'd love to sit down and clink martini glasses with Dorothy Parker at the Algonquin Round Table. I'm guessing Dorothy made a pretty good dinner companion.

I'd like to ask Dottie what inspired her humor over the years and how she decided to leave her literary estate to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. Self-centeredness

Q. If you could acquire any talent, what would it be?

A. I would love to be able to fly a plane! I'm way too chicken to ever learn, but it must be such an amazing sense of freedom.

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

A. I'm a huge Edith Wharton fan, so let's go with the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for literature
