Interview with the heroine from Cooking the Books by Bonnie Calhoun:

1. Sloane Templeton, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

 Hmmm…I would say the most interesting thing about me is that I’m still alive. I remember in one of the Indiana Jones movies, the temple guardian remarked to Indiana about the man that chose a golden chalice as the cup of Jesus…and ultimately turned to dust because it was the wrong cup, that he chose “unwisely.” Well although I’ve got great intentions, I seem to always be choosing unwisely. So I guess the Lord really does protect fools and babies.

2.  What do you do for fun? ROFLOL…eat cheesecake!

3.  What do you put off doing because you dread it? That’s totally easy too…I dread getting on the scale…because of the above mentioned cheesecake.

4.  What are you afraid of most in life? I sometimes have a wariness, but I don’t have any fear because I have the Lord watching my back. But that lack of fear probably contributes to me going to places that angels fear to tread…or to follow me. The poor things probably look like a fife and drum corps with the crutches, slings on their arms and head bandages from interceding on my behalf.

5.  What do you want out of life? World peace…*waving to the crowd* Thank you for this title…uh, oh…this isn’t the Miss America competition? Oh well, then in that case I’d say that I just peace for myself…and to NOT have to eat Aunt Verline’s cooking any time soon.

6.  What is the most important thing to you? Family, which consists of Fifi since she was mom’s best friend for more years than I’ve been alive…and Aunt Verline, bless her li’l heart. She’s the only blood relative I have left since mom’s Homegoing to Jesus.

7.  Do you read? If so, what is your favorite type of book to read? Well shazam! I own a bookstore full of books. My favorite books are suspense mysteries.

8.  If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? Wow these questions are like shooting fish in a barrel. This is another easy peasy one. I’d change the size of my butt to about a size 4. Although all the girls I know that size say “Tee hee, I forgot to eat.” Sheesh…give me a break, forgetting to eat is about as easy as forgetting to breath.

9.  Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet? I don’t have a pet at this time because I just moved back to Brooklyn from the City, and most of the apartments in the City do not allow pets or charge you a fortune in extra rent for having one. Besides there were no parks around me to walk a pet. Okay…so you caught me. I love dogs. But I really am not partial to running around with a bag of doggie poo in my pocket. I don’t look at that as a trendy fashion statement. So I’d probably wait till I moved out in the country where the dog could be a free-range pooper. I do like cats too, and they confine themselves to little poo boxes, but I haven’t found the one that wants to adopt me yet.

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why? I’d go back to World War II and meet my grandma when she was a young girl. She had it kinda rough for a while and she could have used the extra support.
