How many suits do you own? 15, maybe even 20. When your weight fluctuates as mine does, you wind up with a lot of clothes.

What word do you routinely misspell? who’s/whose–I know the difference but I still find myself tapping out
the wrong one.

Did you see Brokeback Mountain? Nope.

Did you see The Da Vinci Code? Nada, but listened to the book on Audible.

What’s the name of your cell phone ring? “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” by Green Day

What time did you get up this morning? 5:45 AM

When did you last cry and why? That’s between me and my Kleenex.

Which of the seven deadly sins are you? Alas, gluttony.

Beach, city or country? As Bill Clinton would say, that’s a false choice: “City and beach.”

Would you say you’re cute? Pretty? Hot? Beautiful? None of the above.

  • With almost 60%, The Beatles are your fav, but one reader calls the Waaa-mbulance on what they consider to be our lack of music credibility: “Did you really do a poll on who’s better Beatles, Stones and LZ? Love the latter two, but not even in the same league as a band that actually changed music…I think a more interesting contest would be Beatles, Bob Dylan and maybe Elvis or Muddy Waters — people who had some lasting influence please….your current question damages your credibility…”
