Questions that Matter with Sarah Dickinson

I asked the questions that matter of Sarah Dickinson! But first, the book:

Now, the questions!

Welcome, Sarah! What’s your favorite cheesy pick-up line? Have you ever used it for real? 

My favorite pick-up line, and yes indeedy I have used it, goes as such: walking up to fine individual you would like to know, you seductively suck on your index finger. Then you pop finger out of your mouth, tap them and yourself on the shoulder before asking, “what do you say you and I go get out of these wet clothes” When they finish laughing at you, you now try to find your pride.

Did it work? What would you want to be written on your tombstone?

I hate to admit that after finding out that there is a place in PA that will turn your cremated ashes into a firecracker I fully intend to have my fat ass shot over the ocean as loved ones celebrate the moments we shared together. But in any memorial plaque made for me I know my children will quote Garth Brooks, “Our lives are better left to chance. I could have missed the pain, but I would have missed the dance.”

You’re a firework! What’s your favorite word?

Hands down my favorite word is fuck. It’s a noun, verb, adjective. You can use it as a period, exclamation point, comma, and word enhancer. It changes meaning depending on its tone. Can be an entire sentence on its own, but you can build a complete sentence using just that and it is still grammatically correct. ex…fuck fucking fuckers.

And it rhymes well, so it’s great for use in poetry! What would you name your boat if you had one?

It would be named “hold my hair” as I would be vomiting far too much. As I can get sea sick standing on a dock, and in some cases in the middle of strong waves waist deep in the ocean water.

Maybe a boat in a bottle would be better? What is one of your favorite quotes?

Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children…William Makepeace Thackeray

Insightful! Do you know what your name means? Or who were you named after?

While I know Sarah means princess, the far better story is that when my mother was pregnant with me she fully intended to name me Jennifer. Now my mother despised nicknames and picked Jennifer because she figured the worst she’d hear me called was Jen. Fast forward to my delivery, her best friend (a nurse) was with her when my speedy and emergent arrival happened. She made sure I & my mother made it safely and cashed in those indispensable person chips immediately. She sent flowers to the room with a card that said, To a Niffer From a Nuffer….and my mother immediately changed my name to Sarah.

And Sarah is a lovely name to have! Never trust a person who doesn’t like…

Music! I have a list of standby classics that are my personal test. If I play these songs, and you do not sing along…passionately…you are not a person I need in my life. They include Paradise by the Dashboard Lights, Bohemian Rhapsody, the Piano Man, Friends in Low Places, and Iron Man to name a few.

An eclectic mix! Thank you, Sarah, for entertaining us today! Support Sarah by checking out the links! Then, find your sea-legs and join us next Friday for another fun interview!

Happy reading! 🙂
