My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Don't be too embarrassing.

Q. What’s your greatest flaw?

A. It's a tie: 1) Not diligent with questionnaires; 2) I get hurt feelings too often.

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 are your 5 favorite songs?

A. "Jolene" - Dolly Parton, "Don't Forget Me" - Harry Nilsson, "Glad and Sorry" - The Faces, "1952 Vincent Black Lightning" - Richard Thompson, "The Beast in Me" - Nick Lowe,

Q. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Iago.
