your favorite word? Onomonopoetic
languages do you speak? Just the one. I am the epitome
of ‘arrogant American’ in that regard.
your favorite time of year, and why? Summer. It stems
from being a kid and knowing school was out. And my birthday is in July.
have any embarassing nicknames as a kid? When I was in
5th grade, some bully said I had a head like Elmer Fudd. For three
years after that, everyone called me ‘Elmer’. It's even in the yearbook
you cry? A life cut too short. I had a Navy buddy die
recently in a traffic accident. He was only 29.
your favorite section of the newspaper? Sports. It’s the
only thing I read. I throw the rest away.
three things you can't live without? Obviously, family
and friends are in there, so I’ll skip them and say peanut butter,
country music and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
could have one superpower, which power would you pick?
The ability to manipulate time. There is nothing you could not do.
Travel back and forth and correct stuff. Save people. Buy stock in
Microsoft or Wal-Mart. C’mon!
you want to be when you grew up? A policeman. As an
adult, I see them as what they are, just people. But when I was a kid,
they were like superheroes.
could pick any other time period to live in - including the future -
which would it be, and why? As odd as it may sound, it
would probably be the late 70’s to early 80’s. Everything in my world
was right then.
the one thing you want to do before you die? See my
grandchildren die of old age.
