1. How old would you like to live to be?
My Dad was 58. If I could get to 70, I'd be happy. But for the past few months, I've really been contemplating my mortality. Not so much for me, but for the sake of my wife and family. I know where I'm headed, so that's not worrying me, but I don't want to leave my family in a lurch. If I go at 58, my boys will only be 25. That's way too young to lose your dad.
2. Finish this sentence with your own opinion or philosophy. Marriage is...
The type of relationship I'm in right now, and it's treating me very well, thankyourverymuch.
3. What are your three best traits or qualities?
My sense of humor, my generosity, and my Jazz shuffle feels pretty good.
4. The last time you got mad, why did you get mad?
I can get frustrated pretty easily, but I don't get angry too much. My guess is probably I got mad at Susan over a household/money issue. (If Susan and I could eliminate money issues, we'd almost never fight. We don't fight much to begin with.)
5. Tell us the best school teacher you ever had and why.
I don't think I could single out one, but those who made impressions on me were:
RDHS music teachers Marlene Hall and Dick Walton.
RDHS English teacher Roz Costa.
RDHS science teachers Dr. Faxon and Tim "Jim" Dresser.
UMA professors Terry Plunkett and Jill Rubenson-Fenton.
UMA drum teacher Steve Grover.
