Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Don't be too embarrassing.

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. If you could be anywhere in the world right now, where would you choose to be?

A. At this moment, I feel a little hungry. So: the Cafe Schwarzenberg. I'll have the kaiserschmarrn.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I have a massive head. I mean that literally. Not that I don't have a healthy ego, but my actual skull is extremely large. Hats can be a challenge.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Nachos.
