My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What’s your greatest fear?

A. Not being liked. A close second would be admitting my greatest fear.

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. I had to consult my husband on this one, and he said it’s that I don’t take myself too seriously.

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

A. Does anyone not answer "pizza"?

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. If you mean physical trait, it’s probably my smile. I must have a weird face, because whenever I’m not smiling, people ask if I’m upset. Nine times out of ten, I’m just thinking. Then they insist I must be annoyed at something, and eventually it becomes true. If you mean personality trait, people usually say I’m incredibly nice. I’m proud of this, because it means I’ve totally fooled 99% of those who’ve met me.
