16 things you wouldn’t know about me if I didn’t tell you:
In kindergarten I was Little Bo Peep, and Billy Houghton was Little Boy Blue. We were in costume, and that was the first time I was in love.
In Longmeadow, Massachusetts, where I grew up, my library card number was 99.
In a class concert in kindergarten, I played the triangle.
My kindergarten teacher was named Miss Benner. First grade teacher was Miss Hathaway. Then Miss Bancroft in second grade, Miss Hooker in third, Miss Smith in fourth. I can’t remember the name of my fifth grade teacher. My sixth grade teacher was Miss Hicks, and she was also the principal.
I loved algebra, did well, was lost in geometry.
My mother was a marvelous cook. She made everything from scratch. It was never trouble for her. Cooking was truly her joy. It was how she expressed love.
I almost named my daughter Elizabeth.
The first book my daughter read on her own was Make Way for Ducklings.
The two happiest days of my life were when my daughter was born and when Godwriting started.
My middle name was Florence.
I love stories.
I have a niece only three years younger than I am, and her name is also Gloria.
In elementary school, I loved to play basketball.
I don’t drink coffee, eat desserts, or even drink wine, except maybe once a year I do.
And the last one: My father had a grocery store. When I was three or four, he would put me in the back of the store, give me a hammer and nails and wooden crates to hammer the nails into. I was very happy, hammering nails in, and unhappy when all the nails were used up!
