    What’d you eat for dinner last night?

    If you were a fruit, what would you be?

    “Blueberry — a little mushy, a little sweet, sometimes sour. Loved by many, hated by some. Best in the summer and with pie.”


    What’s always in your refrigerator?

    “Hard cider.”


    First drink you ever had?

    “Zima in my bedroom with my friend Ellanna in eighth grade. I was under-impressed — until I threw a Jolly Rancher in it.”
