  • What is one invention that you just couldn't live without?  The shower.
  • Which of your many talents would you perform in a talent show?  Poetry in Spoken Word
  • If you could go back in time to have dinner with one person, who would that be?  That's a hard question.  I would absolutely love to sit across from Shakespeare, but then, Edgar Allen Poe, I believe, would be a very interesting dinner date.  However, one more dinner with my grandfather would be monumental and I'd gladly give up dinner with anyone else for one more bowl of Grandpa's chili with a side of home-made canned pears.
  • Write out in three steps what your plan of action would be if a mouse just ran by your door.  
    • 1) Find the lazy cat whom has allowed this mouse free run in our home;
    • 2) Give said lazy cat a scolding and threaten punishment by way of refusing belly rubs before giving her an encouraging pep-talk on the benefits of catching mice; and
    • 3) Spend the rest of the day peeking around corners, into cabinets, and hoping every noise is the sound of said mouse's demise by mouse-trap.
