I’m a little late getting around to answering these four questions posed by Rory. Well, better late than never, right?
What was the worst thing you did as a child?
I grew up.
Growing up, what was your ideal dream job and did you bring that to a reality at all?
I was told by numerous people that I had a great speaking voice and that I ought to consider becoming a radio disk jockey. So I decided to take the FCC third-class operator’s license, which was required at the time in order to go on air at an AM radio station. Then I managed, during one summer vacation in college, to acquire a job as a disk jockey for the midnight to six am shift at a small, relatively rural radio station. I gave it my all, but it was a lonely job. In a valiant attempt to liven things up a bit (and to keep me awake), I would ask listeners to call in to request records that they wanted me to spin and I would hold contests to see who could come up with the correct answers to my rock ‘n roll trivia questions. Nobody called. Ever. And thus ended my desire to be a DJ. To this day, I still don’t know if anyone was actually listening.
What were the things you both loved and hated about your schooling?
I loved history and English. I hated math, although I did eventually learn to love working with numbers.
Where there is a will, there is a way! Do you agree?
Depends upon whether or not I was mentioned in the will and, if so, how much I was bequeathed.
