Who are you? Doug Wilson, 55.
Tell us about yourself. I’m a reporter and ordained Southern Baptist minister. My wife and I have three adult children and three grandsons.
When I was a kid, I wanted to be … a cowboy sheriff. I told my mother I knew all I needed once I could recite the alphabet and my numbers up to 100.
What would you rather be doing right now? Hunting, fishing or reading.
Shhhhhh! Don’t tell anyone that … I’m not really wild about being on radio or television. It’s just that I’m not afraid of the microphone.
Other than your wedding day and/or the birth of your children, what was your proudest moment? My ordination day.
It really stinks when … people get so caught up in their pet peeves that they think everyone in the world ought to hear their gripes.
What word in the dictionary would your face be next to? Calm.
I always laugh when … people ask me open-ended questions they think will elicit some great response.
Invite any three people, living or dead, to dinner. Who are they? Jesus would be the only guest, because no matter who else I had at the dinner, they would soon be forgotten.
At the end of a really long day at work, I like to … fish.
People who knew me in high school thought I was … a mixture of a football tackle and founder of the chess club.
My most unforgettable brush with greatness was with … nobody.
I would drop all my plans tonight if I had the chance to … shoot a round of sporting clays.
If someone gave me a million dollars, there is STILL no way I would … turn into an idle rich guy.
America should be more concerned about … government efforts to be all things to all people — first, because it’s not free, and second, because nobody should want government to be the nanny.
I’m OK if there’s ever a national shortage of … camouflage clothing. My family has seen camo hunting gear as the easy gift idea for several years.
What place in the world would you most like to visit? Hawaii — for the beaches, the ocean and the weather.
What is the most useful piece of advice you have ever received? Don’t take yourself too seriously and don’t take the opinions of others too lightly. My mother and father contributed to both halves of that saying.
When I’m cruising down the road, I’m likely listening to … any of six radio stations carrying news, public radio, religion programming or country-western music.
I always get sentimental when … my grandsons say something cute or clever as they’re leaving after a long visit. Their best actions are especially meaningful after they’ve been testing Grandma’s and Grandpa’s patience.
The older I get, the more I realize … my parents were right about so much.
If I had one “do-over,” I would … have put my wife’s house cat on a diet before he got so big.
My favorite item of clothing is … a pair of Wolverine boots that relieve my foot pain and are a mixture of rugged and casual.
If I’ve learned anything at all … it’s that question formats like this are flawed.
