Fandango’s Provocative Question #116

Garry and I watched the show during which Colbert introduced these question to John Oliver, Jane Fonda, and Ringo Starr. CBS has replayed the show twice more. I’m glad to answer them again. I never get tired of favorite sandwiches.

Fandango would like us to not only answer, but also to elaborate on our answers and explain why we answered the way you did. It’s hard to apply “why” to a sandwich. Just saying.

Best sandwich?

Bacon and tomato, hold the lettuce. On white, lightly-toasted bread. It’s that great combination of salty and sweet, crunchy and soft. My all time favorite.

What’s one thing you own that you really should throw out?

I think a better question would be “what should you keep”! I have a lot of stuff. It’s cool. It’s beautiful. But it’s a lot of loveliness and I don’t actually need any of it.

Annabelle – my first doll – 1952

Some of it I would happily give away — free — to someone who really wants it. Especially the dolls.

What is the scariest animal?

Spiders. Because they are scary. We have wolf spiders here. Okay, you probably have them wherever you live too. They live everywhere including South America, England, Arizona, and the woods of New England. YUCK. I will not show you a picture. Pictures make me feel faint. Big spiders come in a wide variety of formats and the few times I’ve encountered one, I thought I’d die of heart failure. These spiders are big enough to eat birds. Ponder that.

Apples or oranges?

Oranges. I used to love apples, but they no longer love me back. It is also hard to get really good oranges up here. Ironically, we live in orchard country and we have wonderful apples. Which I can’t eat.

Have you ever asked someone for their autograph?

No. I wish I had, but it always seemed to be too much of an intrusion. On the other hand, have been kind of friendly with some “famous” people over the years, probably because I’m married to a legend. That’s right. A LEGEND.

What do you think happens when we die?

I will live what years I have remaining and deal with whatever comes. I would hope that whatever happens after we die is at least peaceful. Finally, all bills will have been paid. The phone won’t ring. Email will stop piling up. One way or the other, it’s the end. Is is also a beginning? No idea.

Favorite action movie?

Tombstone. Righteous killing and lots of it. Handsome guys with blazing guns and some really fun, entertaining scenes. Whenever we need a full throttle violence fix, that’s our go-to movie. Unless it’s The Magnificent Seven.

Favorite smell?

Anything but the dog after dinner.

Least favorite smell?

The dog. After dinner.

Exercise: worth it?

Probably. Can’t prove it by me.

Flat or sparkling?

Sparkling. A little sparkling. Not wild bubbling. Light fizziness.

Most used app on your phone?

The telephone followed by text followed by solitaire.

You get one song to listen to for the rest of your life: what is it?

Beethoven’s Sixth Symphony or maybe the Ninth. Probably the Sixth (Pastoral).

What number am I thinking of?

Forty-two. It’s the meaning of everything.

Describe the rest of your life in 5 words?

I really have no idea.

  1. I love how you express your love for THE LEGEND!


  2. Our sandwich ‘like’ is the same! I like mine with lettuce and as little condiment as possible (mayo or Miracle Whip), but with the decline in the availability of lettuce up here, I’ll have to get used to your version of the BLT…. no great burden!


    • I like lettuce, but I can never get it to stay put. It always falls out of the sandwich and lands in my lap. So, I gave up.

      I think we’ll se a lot of shortages of vegetables and fruits. Drought and flood and too much heat are not good for creatures or crops. I fear it will get much worse.
