She could tell us, but she'd have to charge.

And charge a LOT, to make up for the loss in income. Those books take a lot of work.

Alice is tackling some big subjects over on medium. He could ask better, deeper questions. I wonder how much research he actually does before an interview. 


“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

the questions are unbelievably perfunctory. luckily, he is interviewing an interesting, articulate person.


my annoying opinions: whisky, food and occasional cultural commentary

 

current restaurant review: house of curry (sri lankan in rosemount, mn)

 

current whisky review: glen ord 28

 

current recipe: white bean curry with green peppers

 

 

facts are meaningless. you could use facts to prove anything that's even remotely true!
