1.) Ambimasticator for the most part, but I suppose I slightly prefer the left side.
2.) Kate in A Bedroom Farce, my senior year (I did 1-2 shows a year all through high school)
3.) Not generally, although snorkeling can make it happen. All that forceful mouthbreathing.
4.) A week or two ago, to file a claim with our insurance company. I have another one to do now that I'm procrastinating on.
5.) Bottle.
6.) Second grade.
7.) Is it a smelly canal? I'd take whichever one has cooler weather.
8.) The same thing my seizures taste like.
9.) Turtle
10.) Homo Deus: Nonfiction. They're almost all nonfiction these days.

1) Which side of your mouth do you usually chew with?

Slowly transitioning to the right because I have a sensitive tooth on the left. But I always want to default to the left.

2) When is the last part you played in a school play?

Some German literature thing at German play festival at Mount Holyoke my senior year of college.

3) Do you get seasick?

Not often. Maybe 5% of voyages.

4) When did you last hand-address an envelope?

Week before last. An estate thing, telling the United Nations to stop sending my dead cousin postage stamps that can only be used in a post office in Grand Central Station and one in Geneva. FFS

5) Do you prefer to drink out of a bottle or a can?

Seriously? A bottle.

6) Have you had chicken pox?

Yes. In kindergarten.

7) Would you prefer a walk in the woods or along a canal bank?

Probably woods, but walking along a canal is often very nice too. Each depends on the location.

8) What does infinity taste like?

Dispair.

9) Turtle or Tortoise?

Turtle

10) Was the last book you read fiction or non-fiction?

If you count reading every page, then fiction. But if you count reading the majority of something and gleaning the valuable information out of it, then non-fiction.

1) Which side of your mouth do you usually chew with?

Uh, left? (Great. Now I'm going to be fixated on how I chew. )

2) When is the last part you played in a school play?

Twelfth grade. Rosie Alvarez in Bye Bye Birdie.

3) Do you get seasick?

No. Although I did get sort of queasy once on a ferry, while crossing the Juan De Fuca Straits.

4) When did you last hand-address an envelope?

A few days ago. I've been doing a lot of this since my folks died (I'm in charge of the family trust).

5) Do you prefer to drink out of a bottle or a can?

Definitely a bottle.

6) Have you had chicken pox?

Yes.

7) Would you prefer a walk in the woods or along a canal bank?

Woods.

8) What does infinity taste like?

Cheez Whiz.

9) Turtle or Tortoise?

Tortoise, for sure. You have to give big props to anything that lives 150 years.

10) Was the last book you read fiction or non-fiction?

Fiction (Stephen King's Sleeping Beauties). Non-fiction is too damned frightening.
