It’s Sunday so it must be time for . . .
1. What is your favorite picture book?
Oh, what a hard question! I don’t really have one favorite, so I will just name the first favorite to come to mind: The Runaway Bunny, which I like even better than Goodnight Moon, a more famous book by the same author. This way of showing a mother’s love is SO much more appealing to me than sappy things like I’ll Love You Forever and its ilk. I wrote about other favorite kids’ books here.
2. Are you a boycotter?
Not on a grand scale. I avoid Nestle products as much as possible due to their flouting of the WHO code regarding advertising of formula in Third World countries. It’s not making any difference; I know that–it’s about me, not them.
3. How do you feel about cheese?
I love it and am so happy that low carb eating allows it after I have spent my life avoiding it and feeling guilty about the fat content.
4. How many pairs of sunglasses do you own?
Three, which were purchased for me by my son Teddy a couple of years ago, I think for my birthday. Before that, the last pair I had were blue and I purchased them at Cracker Barrel in 1986. I had them till the house burned down.
5. How long has it been since you went to the dentist?
I’m not really sure but the embarrassing truth is probably 14 years. I know it was before William was born. We don’t have dental insurance, and I don’t get cavities, so it hasn’t seemed like a priority, especially since I brush obsessively several times a day and even in the middle of the night. I plan to add a dental plan next year now that we are used to paying a monthly health insurance premium.
6. If you could visit any religious site in the world, where would you go?
First choice, Vatican City. Second, Lourdes, where I have already been with my grandmother when I was 17.
