Writing has always been my "thing," despite that D I got in handwriting in second grade (thanks a lot Mrs. Whatever Your Name Was). Early on I learned I could boost my flagging math grades by writing extra-credit reports. I figured if I couldn't compute, at least I could snow-job my way into a better grade. Ah, the fine art of fiction writing.
I'm incapable of going to the movies without ordering popcorn, even when I see them lugging in months-old stale popcorn by the garbage bagful to dump into the popcorn machine for appearances' sake. I could give a care about most sports but am always loyal to all Pittsburgh teams and Penn State, natch. I am itching to get back to Italy.
