UACMercuryRisinfgAprilKent

What is your favorite book?

Ladder of Years by Anne Tyler. I read it every year. It’s about a woman who runs away from home to reinvent herself, shucking off the weight of taking care of the world.  

Who would you choose to have dinner with, dead or alive?

This is a predictable answer. My father. He died when I was young and I didn’t really get to know him. Oh, I’ve heard stories because I know his family but . . .

What is your biggest pet peeve?

Sounds so trivial but I do have Mars in Virgo. Bad grammar, bad punctuation, bad use of language. What’s so hard about an apostrophe? Yes, I am judgy when it comes to punctuation and grammar.

What would you change about yourself?

Oh, God. What wouldn’t I change is a better question. Wow, that’s going to make me look neurotic.

What is your favorite food?

Pasta of all kinds. Any old pasta done any old way. Just no fish, please!
