Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Keep reading, keep laughing.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. I'd like to meet Abner Doubleday and thank him for inventing baseball. I'd also sing him songs from "Going, Going, Gone," 'cause I get the sense he'd love parody tunes about sports.

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

A. I would be me. It's all I know how to do.

Q. What do you regret most?

A. I regret not brushing my teeth better as a kid. I now know if you just wet the toothbrush at bedtime, it doesn't actually help your teeth.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. My bushy eyebrows and bushy smile.
