1. Would you prefer having people over for dinner or going to their house?
Having people over.
I am all about the home field advantage.
Even though socializing isn’t a game you can win.
Until it is.
2. Favorite Bible verse and why?
It would probably surprise people that I can even quote Bible verses.
However, I am a ministers daughter, and spent more hours in church in my first 18 years than most people do in their entire lives.
I also used to have a little Bible in my nightstand, like I lived in a hotel or something.
And, when I was learning to read, I did so by reading the Bible.
I can also recite all the books of the Old Testament in order.
Anyway, the first verse I memorized was Luke 24:25.
“Oh fools with hearts so slow, to believe everything the prophets have spoken…”
It’s much longer than that and what I had memorized was about a paragraph or two long.
They used to rent me out for parties to recite the Bible.
I kid. I kid.
Anyway, today, all I can remember is that line.
It’s when Jesus appears to some of his followers after he has been resurrected and he hasn’t yet revealed himself to be Jesus.
So, I don’t have a favorite Bible verse as I haven’t actually picked up a Bible in a very, very long time.
Yet, I’m going to guess that as a child, Luke 24:25 was my favorite verse.
3. What was the first concert you ever attended, and the most recent one?
Hmmm…my first concert was either the Steve Miller Band at, what was then called, the PNC Arts Center OR Billy Joel at Yankee Stadium. Steve Miller was a good concert, Billy Joel was a PHENOMENAL concert.
4. The year is 2025. What are you doing, and what have you done?
13 years from now.
Well, first of all, I’ll have a 24 year old, a 21 year old, a 19 year old and a 14 year old.
Unimaginable to me.
I will have been teaching for 29 years and will still be teaching. (I’ll actually have been teaching for 31 years at that point, but the pension system didn’t recognize my time at a private school.)
I’ll be 53 years fabulous.
I’ll be working on my third novel.
Over the summers we’ll be traveling with the kids to Europe and all kinds of cool places.
We’ll be happy and living a good life.
5. What’s your favorite Easter treat?
Nothing, anymore, but in the days where I could actually eat Easter treats, it was the Reese’s Peanut Butter eggs, hands down.
I could eat 10 of those puppies at a pop, without even batting an eye.
