A place you saw when you were a child, and that made its mark on you? My dream under old fashioned general anesthesia when I was 6 years old. It was so colorful, vivid and powerful, it was engraved in my memory: pink and blue elephants flying on the shimmering golden air balloons, fabric pattern ready!

The show takes place in the fictional seaside town of Storybrooke, Maine, in which its residents are actually characters from various fairy tales that were transported to the “real world” town and robbed of their real memories by a powerful curse. Endlessly captivating! Red Hood is a werewolf, mind you!

Something that made you laugh out loudly recently? My son’s witty response to my incessant babbling about genius perfection of a human body caused by cutting my thumb, and how grateful I was for having all parts in place and order. He said he was extremely grateful for having his two index fingers that he could stick in his ears so he didn’t have to listen to this crap about how grateful I was.
