Please Write (and tell us why)

This is kind of like a quiz plus words about why you chose this particular person.

1. Who is the most beautiful person you have ever met?

2. Who is the smartest person you have ever met?

3. Who is the funniest person you have ever met?

4. Who is the most erotic and sexy person you have ever met?

I will post my own answers within a week. You don't have to name people if you don't want to.

Please write!



  1. How can we not name people if every question begins with "who"?

  2. OK, I'll bite. It's 6:15 am, no coffee, but what the hell.

    1) L. in high school - statuesque, cheekbones to die for, Breck girl hair, beatific smile with a hint of irony, eyelashes that, incredibly, weren't fake. "Hey, Beautiful!" to her face, "Too bad about the acne" behind her back.

    2) R. in university. Big brain, megalomanic with an inferiority complex. Introduced me to John Ashbery & Wallace Stevens. Smart move.

    3) A. in 5th grade. She looked like a monkey, kind of like Barbra Streisand as a kid with big ears. Had me in stitches constantly, an antidote to my uber-serious, way-too-Protestant family.

    4) J. in the present - mine, all mine!
