My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Don't be too embarrassing.

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

A. I'd love to be able to draw or play guitar or dance. All three at the same time: that's the talent for me.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I suspect that perfect happiness is not possible for me. I suppose if I was ever selected for eternal life - the moment I was informed - that would bring me the closest.

Some more common occurrences that make me happy: watching movies with my wife, reading on the couch, nachos, pancakes, coffee, sunny days and warm nights at Fenway Park, listening to records, not being sick. 

Q. What do you regret most?

A. This is like asking a parent to choose their favorite child. I just can't. My personal history is strewn with massive errors in judgment. They're all precious to me.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Nachos.
