1.What food reminds you of your spouse?
Sushi! Growing up, I was never an adventurous eater. When my husband and I went on our first date and he suggested sushi, I agreed only because I didn’t want to look like a wimp. I absolutely hated it. But when he surprised me on our one month anniversary by re-creating that first date, I realized that sushi wasn’t so bad. And one year for Valentine’s Day, he spent the day at an Asian food market learning how to make sushi and surprised me with a homemade sushi dinner. It was only fitting that we moved to Japan. Now, over a decade after that first date, my husband and I rarely go on a date without stopping by our favorite sushi joint.
2.Who would you rather sit next to in a cross-country plane ride: an irritating non-stop talker, or a quiet stare-er?Definitely a quiet stare-er. You can hide behind a book. It’s way too hard to tune out a talker.
3.What are your best tips on how to save money?Don’t spend it.
4.What is your favorite summer memory?
Spending entire days at our neighborhood pool. Playing pool games, hitting the playground for volleyball and tetherball, eating popsicles at the snack bar, flirting with the lifeguards, reading the Baby-Sitters Club and Sweet Valley High series in a lounge chair, listening to Debbie Gibson and Tiffany. Good times.
5.Do you believe in ghosts?Nope.
