A. Semper Gumby (Always Flexible) It's our family motto.
A. My mouth is most noticeable! I am rarely silent, or even talking quietly.
A. In my experience, most people that stand out in History are famous and noble. I can't really call myself either. I identify more with the quiet people in history. I would have been a background person that never made the history books: the School Marm, the Herb Lady, the Wet Nurse.
A. My greatest fear is ticks. I hate ticks. I don't mind snakes, rodents, malaria carrying tsetse flies, but I am completely grossed out by ticks.
A. I would love to meet Hatshepsut. She was one of the first women Pharaohs of ancient Egypt. She ruled for years, but the generations that came after her tried to erase her from history. They failed because her most trusted friends hid the story of her life in her tomb.
I would ask her how it felt to know, or at least suspect, that however hard she worked, others would try to destroy her legacy. I would want to talk to her about balancing duty to those who count on you, with personal hopes and dreams. I would also like to know how the ancients really did build all those pyramids?
