14. Favorite junk/comfort food? Chips.

15. What is your favorite hour of the day? Why? Nighttime because I love sleeping.

19. If time machines were real, and you could choose just one - to travel forward or backward - which would you select and why? I would go back in-time to when my dad was in high school and find out whether or not he was really a stud at cross country.

20. If you could pick one person, dead or alive, and ask them just one question that they had to answer honestly, who would you pick and what would you ask? My nanny. Why won’t she move from Pennsylvania to Kentucky.
