Your Favorite…

Inevitably, each of us comes across the question, “What is your favorite…” Movie, song, TV show, etc., etc. It’s difficult to produce ONE thing you’ve seen or heard that is your all time favorite. I grew tired of being asked this and not being able to produce one so I found a novel way to get through it.

First of all I have an all-time favorite list of my favorites. They are not in list order. They are my number ones. And then I rattle a list out. When someone asks me why Seinfeld isn’t my favorite I say it’s on my all-time list.
