The Ten Questions

nup-154296-0005-jpgLast night interviewed Dr Kendall Soulen, theology professor at Wesley Seminary, as part of our Pub Theology event at Forge Brew Works. To end the interview, I put a theological twist on James Lipton’s 10 Questions from Inside the Actors Studio.

 

 

Lipton’s questionnaire concept was originated by Frenchtelevision personality Bernard Pivot on his show Apostrophes, after the Proust Questionnaire.

I’ll post the audio to Kendall’s answers to the tweaked questions soon, but I thought I would offer my own rapid-fire responses to the 10 Questions:

 

  1. What is your favorite word? Grace.

  2. What is your least favorite word? Should.

  3. What turns you on? A wry, knowing smile.

  4. What turns you off? Silence.

  5. What sound or noise do you love? My son’s belly laugh.

  6. What sound or noise do you hate? My wife’s hairdryer.

  7. What is your favorite curse word? Son of a bitch!

  8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Cooking.

  9. What profession would you not like to do? Dancing.

  10. If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates? Just by the skin your teeth.

Who’s brave enough to answer them too?
