“What’s a time in your life when you’ve been afraid?”

“Wow. That would probably go back into high school. Unfortunately I lived in a high crime area, and there were a couple times when people were just jumping random kids on the street, so I did have to deal with that. That was in Arizona. Iowa’s been tame compared to where I had to grow up. I wouldn’t say I’ve really been afraid at all here.”

“What do you do for fun?”

“Hang out with the kids. Go to plays with the family occasionally. I do a lot with the Kids On Course nights at school. I read. I do have a small roleplaying group that I get involved with every now and then, but other than that I’m usually at home, so it’s whatever is on the schedule for the kids.”

“You’re wearing a racing shirt. Do you like racing?”

“I do like NASCAR, but I don’t get to follow it very much, because I’m the only one in the house who likes NASCAR. It’s the same thing with football. If there’s a football game on I have to go somewhere else, or they have to be out of the house so I can watch it.”
