Saturday 9

Saturday 9: Medicate

1. Do you take a lot of medication? More and more as time goes by. When I was a kid, it was just an OTC Flintstones vitamin a day. Now I've got three prescriptions I take every day.

2. Name one of your flaws and tell us about it. I can be very impatient with people. I want what I want and I want it NOW!

3. Have you ever won first place? If yes, tell us about your victory! Long ago movie critic Gene Siskel had a trivia contest in the Chicago Tribune. Yours truly won $500.

4. Who is the last person to make you smile? What was happening? A coworker wished me luck on Monday morning's big client presentation.

5. Describe a time when you should have tried harder. This past week, I fell off the diet bandwagon with a thud. I was stupid and lazy. I purchased and practically inhaled some Fannie Mays without much thought or even enjoyment. Picking up the candy was an old habit I should have tried harder to break.

6. What are you best at? I am a very good friend.

7. If someone was going to make a movie or TV show about your life, who would play you and why? Carrie Fisher. We're the same height and age, we share a sensibility, and now, as we're in our 50s, a weight problem.
