Tracy Thompson
Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. "Don't take life so serious, son. It ain't nohow permanent." Walt Kelly

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

A. I have always wanted to be a back-up singer for a Motown group like the 1960s-era Supremes. Obviously, this involves not just acquiring a new talent, but time travel as well.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. See question 11.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. Being too chicken to get on the road with a newborn, thereby causing my husband and myself to miss our only chance to see a space shuttle launch. I was a wimp. I still kick myself about it.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. Sense of humor.
