Little Red Corvette

1) The subject of this song is frankly sexual. Do you blush easily? as I get older, I blush less

2) Prince was his real first name (Prince Rogers, to be exact). Growing up, his relatives called him "Skipper." Do you have any nicknames within your family? I have a couple

3) Prince said he was "obsessed" with Mozart and read whatever he can find about the composer. What's the last book you read? I'm currently reading Johnathan Franzen's latest book Purity

4) Between Prince and The Beach Boys, the Corvette is a much sung-about car. Tell us about your vehicle. I bought my car online through a local dealership... and it's almost 10 years old, which is when I start thinking about a new one

5) In the 1980s, when Prince was popular, MTV could turn a song into a hit. In 2016, where do you hear new music? social media

6) In 1982, when "Little Red Corvette" ruled the airwaves, Braniff Airways shocked the travel industry and threw passengers into chaos by declaring bankruptcy. When did you last fly? Did your trip go smoothly? my last flight was very smooth--and it was before all the TSA security

7) 1982 is also the year Disney opened Epcot. Have you ever been to a Disney park? I have not

8) 1982 is the year Cheers premiered. The sitcom was set in a bar where "everybody knows your name." Tell us about your favorite local bar or restaurant. Cafe Sorpreso is a local haunt of mine, I like going for lunch because they have an ever-changing menu, using local and fresh ingredients

9) The 1980s were considered a highpoint in professional tennis, with Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe dominating the sport. Do you play tennis? I do not play anymore, but back in the 80s and 90s I was decent

Why did you walk away from tennis?

The only tennis player! Good for you.

I cannot get into Franzen. For some reason, his writing really turns me off. There are few authors that I refuse to read but he is one of them.

Yes, it's a good time to car search, ten years. Another tennis player. Yay.
