Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Here's what I put in my high school yearbook, and I do believe it's what I'd still put today: Walk slowly; all you can ever come to is yourself.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I can bend my hands up into strange, saucer-like formations. It's creepy.

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. That would be Doing A Headstand. Yep, I've been scared of that particular feat all my life, have never done one, and I've decided to come clean. So there you have it.

A. Lying on the couch while my children bake me delicacies, clean the house, and write small songs of praise in my honor.
