The potato chip flavor that needs to be invented.  Bloody Mary Flavor

I’d give up my cell phone for a week if… I were at writer’s camp.

The one thing I’d do differently if I could go back to high school… Join the Debate Society

My famous last words will be:  Life’s too short to spend it doing things you don’t love.

When scientists from the future dig up a cable system from 2012, they will conclude that: People watched a lot of television.

The one thing I tell my kids about success in life: Assume everyone you meet might one day be your boss and treat them accordingly.
