Sunday Stealing


1.    What's the best thing to inherit other than money? Good genes.

2.    What one  thing would you most like to happen tomorrow? That Anthony Rizzo hits his 300th career home run. (He hit #299 tonight in Milwaukee.)

3.    Who is the person with whom you've been most infatuated? 

4.    In what part of the day does time go slowest and fastest? For some reason, the hours pre-dawn go the fastest. The last hour at work goes the slowest. I like my job at the card shop, but I'm always ready to go home when my shift is over.

5.    Whose thoughts would you most like to read? I've changed my mind about this. I used to wish I could read minds, but I now think I'm better off not knowing.

6.    Who is the person you'd least like to touch? Donald Trump. EW! ICK! I mean, now we all know where he's been.

7.    What is the best quality you inherited from your parents? I got my baseball love from my dad and my animal empathy from my mom.

8.    Who is the friend you most often disagree with? My oldest friend. I love her, and it makes me CRAZY to watch her make bad choice after bad choice.

9.    What's the best ritual of your daily life? I'm very good about taking my meds in the morning. I lost my friend John earlier this month and he was notorious for not listening to his doctors. My friend Henry is relegated to a nursing home, and he never received the aftercare suggested. So I'm careful about taking what I'm supposed to take when I'm supposed to take it. They went to doctor school, after all.

10.    What is the most useful job you've ever had? Instead of my paid jobs I'm going to select my volunteer efforts. Today I wrote postcards to GOTV. I think that's very useful.

11.    In which year of your life did you change the most? I suppose it's the year I moved from the secretarial pool to become a catalog copywriter at Sears. It's when I went from having a job to embarking on a career. I also made lifelong friends.

12.    What's the best thing you've ever gotten for free? The flowers in spring, the robins that sing, the sunbeams that shine, they're yours and mine. And love can come to anyone because the best things in life are free.

13,    What is the thing you are best at? I'm a good friend.

14.    What was the luckiest moment in your life? Every time my flight concludes safely I feel like the luckiest girl in the world.

15.    What is the single most important thing you have ever learned? The only way out is through. There are no shortcuts.
