To, By, Four

Wendy tapped me to respond to the “Four Things” quiz. I usually sit these out — as a professor and a priest, there are serious TMI risks to my giving vent to unbridled self-expression (students and alums shake their heads and say, “You mean, this guy is holding anything back?” But really, appropriate relationships with teachers and clergy are difficult enough without thinking about their favorite body part or which film star they most desire).

Four People I am Now Tagging to Prepare the Same Lists

  1. Ayreshire, Scotland, eh? I’m in the process of planning another trip to the UK, this time staying within Scotland. Would you recommend adding Ayreshire to the list of places to stop and, if so, why?
