Who was your best friend in elementary school?
My best friend in elementary school was Esther. Esther and I were born just two months apart in a small New England town. As was the nature in small New England towns back in the late 1940s, our mothers had also grown up together. Because Esther and I lived near each other, it wasn’t long before we were best friends.
Our paths diverged after high school, but we’ve always managed to keep in touch. Esther and I have known each other all our lives. How many people can say that?
What things could people do for you on a really bad day that would really help you?
Probably the best thing would be a quick smile. The next best thing would probably be to just give me my space. I’m one who likes to be alone when having to deal with life’s bad stuff.
If you could make a 15 second speech to the entire world, what would you say?
I have way too much to say to be limited to 15 seconds. Seriously, it would take me much longer than that to explain to everybody in the world why they should all just get along.
Would you rather be an amazing dancer or an amazing singer?
An amazing singer. As a young adult, I actually was a pretty good singer. I made All-State Chorus my senior year in high school. I would have liked to have had voice lessons, but that just wasn’t in the cards when I was growing up.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
My new hometown Major League Baseball team, the Seattle Mariners, are now playing the best ball since my arrival here in April 2013. In fact, they now sit atop the American League West. I just hope they can continue to win in the upcoming week. Watching the games is so much more enjoyable when you think your team has at least a chance of winning.
Have a good week, everyone. Go Mariners!
