My Life in 8 Words
MURDER BY THE BOOK
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Still time to figure that out. I'll have it posted on my tombstone.
Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
Q. With whom in history do you most identify?
A. Neanderthals - who knows why?
Q. Which living person do you most admire?
A. Prominent people are so worn down by overexposure I find it hard to really admire any of them. Instead these days I seem to be admiring nameless people I see who just keep doing what they have to, sometimes with humor and grace.
Q. What’s your best quality?
A. Probably for others to say, but maybe it's that I don't often lose my temper. On the other hand, loss of temper can be a useful tool, as I'm sure we've all seen, and therefore I'm somewhat handicapped.
