* I like to shower before I work out. Also after. But mostly before.
* I don't get into the shower until I've brushed my teeth.
* I always read standing in the driveway while I'm letting the dog out in the morning.
* Eggs: scrambled or hard fried or else!
* If a poem lasts longer than a page and half, I quit reading. Always. Sorry, Walt Whitman.
* When I get tipsy, I want to smoke cigarettes. So I try not to get tipsy.
* I always: lock the door to my house when I go to bed, read before I sleep, write down every book I read and the date I finish it, drink one cup of coffee every morning, return my library books on time.
* I never: read the newspaper, watch TV news, eat anything 'smothered' in hollandaise sauce, buy lottery tickets, drink whiskey, shovel the driveway.
