- Where were you forbidden (or too frightened) to go when you were growing up, and why? I don’t remember many forbidden places, other than the usual not crossing the street alone, not going with strangers, etc. But I used to be terrified of the third floor of our old house, I think just because it had been my great-grandma’s apartment but she died when I was still pretty young, so the floor was empty then, but it made it kind of creepy. On top of that, she had these old, creepy-looking antique porcelain dolls sitting in the bedroom that would easily still scare me now as an adult. Plus it was a big, old house and I watched lots of ghost TV shows, so I kind of creeped myself out waiting for something to be lurking. That said, people do have ghost stories about the house.
- What’s the naughtiest thing you’ve done in the past couple of years? I don’t know, sex and drugs? I’m a pretty boring person, at least in that sense. I download music illegally sometimes, but that’s almost just so I have it before I buy it–and I almost always buy everything I want at some point. Although I do listen to a lot of Spotify.
- Under what circumstances have you gone into a place you knew you weren’t supposed to enter? I can’t really think of any, although I’m sure there’s something. I know we’ve been out and about in Gettysburg on the battlefield after dark, which they don’t like. I know, such a rule-breaker. Although I have hidden in the back of a car to get in the drive-in for free, because paying per person is dumb.
- Which aisle in your supermarket do you just about never go down? Meat and seafood. I’m a vegetarian.
- Not counting traffic situations, when did you last willfully disobey something you read on a sign? That Gettysburg thing comes to mind again, but same thing otherwise–I can’t really think of much. I tend to obey signs. They’re there for a reason. Usually.
As always, from here.
