What was the funniest thing that has ever happened to you? "Traveling with friends who were adopting in Russia, I was carrying all the luggage for the group in one cab, and they were in another, and I missed the train from Kirov to Moscow. Sitting there waiting for the next train after midnight, with all that luggage, and not speaking a word of Russian did not seem funny at the time, but in retrospect I must have appeared pretty comical."
