My Life in 8 Words
Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?
A. My mind doesn't really work like this--but I have always wanted to go to one of those parties in the Great Gatsby. And maybe I would like to go out to tea with Emily Holmes Coleman. I'd want her to try and tell me about that stint she wrote about in The Shutter of Snow. I bet it would be a wild tea party, full of gasps and hands waving.
Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?
A. No one I have asked while filling this out will tell me.
Q. Which living person do you most admire?
A. I am not built to have heroes, only friends.
Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?
A. Apparently I use sparkly and secret a lot. I have to go back and take these out.
