A. Be prepared. Be happy. Watch out for skunks.
A. I judge people primarily on whether or not they say hello to me, so I'd have to say niceness. Also sense of humor (because how can you face life without that?). And third... Really, so long as someone is kind and willing to smile, I can overlook pretty much anything else.
A. I have curly hair. No, you don't understand. It’s really, really curly. See my author photo? That's me with about a bottle of gel dumped on my head to encourage the curls to respect the laws of gravity. If you tried to blow dry my hair, I'd have a cloud of fuzz around my head so big that I'd be a hazard to birds.
A. Death. Pain. Skunks. And Frisbees. Specifically, Frisbees flying through the air at high speed near my face. I am proud to say that I can face a stationary Frisbee without any feeling of horror.
A. I'd like to be a marine biologist. Except that I hate boats, am not very good at swimming, and am terrified of scuba diving. Hmm, maybe I should stick to writing.
