1. Do you play an instrument? Why or why not?
Yes. I can play bass guitar and some piano. Mostly, I play guitar. I started on trumpet. It was a mean instrument, in every possible sense.
2. How have you changed since high school?
I am much more open minded about situations. Everything used to be black and white. A right side, and a wrong side. Now, I see that things are much nuanced. My mother taught me to see both sides, and it has served me very well. I realize as I grow older that the only true currency is time. I am not even saying I don’t waste time. Wasting time is my favorite thing to do. I mean, I choose to spend my time only with people who bring me up or make me happy.
negativity or paranoia are simply not an option. You were interesting to get drunk with in college, but now you just seem crazy and sad.
3. Will your memoir be a Hollywood blockbuster?
will it be? Ever see ‘Avatar’? That was my story, and it’s kind of a big deal. Jesus, you hayseeds don’t even have 3D yet, do you?
4. If you have an itch do you scratch it?
if I can, I get my wife to scratch it. That is somehow more satisfying. Also, my itches are always on my back… where I can’t get to. Something tells me this question is a metaphor for something bigger. Ok, I will play your game. What is my ‘itch’? Here are my coming mid life crisises…. I want to sky dive, and spend a summer in Alaska.
Back to the literal interpretation of the question > I am pretty serious about backscratching. I keep a bamboo backscratcher at my desk at work and one on every floor the of house. I LOVE getting my backscratched. It is a childhood thing. I was getting a massage two weeks ago, and I asked the lady if she could just scratch my back for an hour. For the record, the answer was no. Also, I think that totally creeped her out.
5. Would you rather: Listen to a hot licks electric guitar or wicked pickin’ acoustic guitar.
easiest question to answer – acoustic. Acoustic guitars are my favorite things. I love them above trucks, and most women. In closing, I beg you to watch this. Seriously. Over and over again.
