One thing my mother taught me… How to dice an onion.
My most treasured possession is… If children count then my two boys.
For me Paris is….Rue Saint Andre Des Arts.
My first thought when I wake up…I wish I was still sleeping.
The last time I said I love you was… This afternoon.
My main vice is… Procrastination.
On my gravestone they will write….. He tried and tried.
