I was just watching A Late Show with Stephen Colbert from Friday, January 8th, where Stephen started asking Tom Hanks, Meryl Streep, and George Clooney the questions from his Colbert Questionert. It occurred to me that while there's nothing scientific about these questions, and certainly nothing that should influence your vote, it might be fun to share my answers. I hope you find something interesting.
Grilled ham and turkey with cheddar cheese, thinly sliced apples, and just a bit of strawberry mayo on a seeded whole wheat bread. (Note: this is basically a slightly modified version of the Sir Issac Turkey from Cool Beans Coffee Cafe on Madison's East side.)
2. What's one thing you own that you should really throw out?
A whole lot of my wardrobe, but I'm planning bariatric surgery in early 2021, so I'll hang on to it so I have something to wear as I shrink.
3. What is the scariest animal?
The only thing I know is that even though there are animals that make me cringe, I still haven't encountered the scariest animal yet. It probably lives deep in the ocean - or worse yet, deep in the ground.
4. Apples or Oranges?
Apples...because I need them for my sandwich in question #1.
5. Have you ever asked someone for their autograph?
Absolutely. A whole bunch. Still have autographs from Michael Damien, Blessid Union of Souls, and others, mainly from my days on-air at WIFC-FM, Wausau.
6. What do you think happens when we die?
In my case, I think some people become very sad, some people celebrate, and I become a pile of ashes. The end.
7. Favorite action movie?
Die Hard. And it's not Christmas until I see Hans Gruber fall from Nakatomi Tower.
8. What's your favorite smell?
The ocean breeze from the highest and most forward deck of a Disney Cruise ship in transit.
9. What's your least favorite smell?
Diesel exhaust. It burns my nostrils something fierce!
10. Exercise. Worth it?
Sure. But that doesn't make it easy or always productive.
11. Flat or Sparkling?
12. Most used app on your phone?
Totally not exciting...Gmail.
13. You get one song to listen to for the rest of your life. What is it?
What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong
14. What number is Stephen Colbert thinking of?
15. Describe the rest of your life in five words.
Hopefully longer than I deserve.
