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. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Some very unpleasant death - to drown, to suffocate, to be slowly eaten, you get the idea. Grim. Let's move on.

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

A. Nachos.

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.
