My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. You don't have to figure it all out at once.
Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?
A. There’s a huge, noisy diner near my house that my whole family loves. Every time we go there I order the same meal: a big green salad and a thick, spicy seafood soup full of mussels, clams, shrimp, scallops and other chewy creatures I don’t want to think too hard about. It’s nothing fancy, but it’s my favorite meal—especially when I’m also able to sneak a few sips of my kids’ vanilla milkshakes.
Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?
A. Crumbs in the butter.
Q. What’s your fantasy profession?
A. Ice cream flavor testing. Is that a profession? It ought to be!
Q. Who is your favorite fictional hero?
A. Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice. She's smart, but not as smart as she thinks.
