What is your favorite sound? Least favorite? The sound of a cheering crowd at the US Open, when a player is winning a night match under the lights. 🎾
What’s your favorite word? Moxie. Monica had a lot of moxie to share a story with a live audience about getting her period.
If you could witness any event in history, what would it be? When my dad won an art contest as a little boy in Delhi, India, and the first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru, presented him with paints and paint brushes.

What is the most embarrassing mistake you’ve ever made? Asking my podiatrist on a date after calling him on his “emergencies only” number. 👣😳
What is the best book you’ve read in the last decade? Saints for All Occasions by J. Courtney Sullivan. Two sisters make hard decisions in order to keep a family secret. It kept me on the edge of my seat.
Sneak Peek: “I cooked solo—or got dinner by myself at a restaurant in Uptown. Most Sundays, after staying in Saturday night with another rented Blockbuster movie, I slumped into the matinee at the Magnolia theater, alone. With my bucket of popcorn for one, I felt like a loser.”
