Odd Questions Students Have Asked

Posted on

I do a great number of school readings. And when I get to the end of my presentation I say, “Now it’s time for the dreaded Q&A. You ask the questions and I’ll attempt to answer, though I don’t do mathematical questions.” Often I get asked, “Where do you get your ideas?” “From a factory in Pennsylvania.” Or “Which book that you wrote is your favourite?” “Dust…because it made the most money for me.”

But here are a few of the questions that I didn’t expect:

“Do you own a tractor?” From an Aussie student on Skype (I was wearing a John Deere t-shirt at the time).

“Does your wife think you’re funny?” No.

“Are you in the military?” Huh?

“Did you have any friends in high school?” Sometimes.

“Do you wear briefs or boxers?” Hmmm, I think this student may have received a talking to after I was gone.

“Are you evil?” This was in a “bible belt” area school. I had just read the first chapter of DUST. “Uh, do you mean do I write horror scary type stuff?”
“No…are you evil?” I actually had no answer. Other than a demonic chuckle…
