My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Don't be too embarrassing.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. It be cool to be eagle for a little while, do some soaring. But not for an indefinite period. Maybe I can just be a shape changer? I could try out being a lion, too.

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. Who is your favorite fictional villain?

A. Iago.

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.
