Smith Barney

What’s the most useless talent you have?

Finding prime parking places. The most prime was at a St. Cardinal game; they were directing traffic right at the stadium, I was driving, and it looked like we were directed to what turned out to be an emergency reserved space, and they told us to just park there.

What is the dumbest way you’ve been injured?

Getting a black eye when a shoe box fell from an upper shelf in my closet.

What’s your biggest screw up in the kitchen?

Brewing coffee without the pot.

What ridiculous thing has someone tricked you into doing or believing?

There have been a lot. Growing up an only child for 10 years meant I missed some sibling tricks everyone else knows. When John told to look out the window at his family’s Sunday dinner, of course I looked. When I looked at my plate, the pie was gone.

Would you rather live in a big city or on a farm?

Somewhere in between like just where I am.
