Character Interview: Luke from Thou Shalt Not Road Trip
What part of the road trip was your favorite?
Well, there’s this bit where I make out with someone. And, I don’t know about you, but I find making out is a great way to block out pretty much any other thoughts. Like breaking down, and getting booed, and blisters. You know, stuff like that. (New Mexico was pretty too!)
Despite the problems you had along the way, especially with your brother, if you could have restarted the trip without him, would you?
Hold on, this one of those character development-type questions, isn’t it? Like, am I pleased my utterly useless brother put me in so many awkward situations that I was forced to change?
Here’s the thing: I really like sleep. I like eating at regular intervals. I like being coherent, and I hate blisters. Put it all together and you can see why I really like the idea of having a professional escort next time.
All the same, I think I get my brother better now (even if he’s still a deadbeat). And there was that moment at Havasu Falls. And behind the hotel in Oklahoma City . . .
All right, I wouldn’t restart without him, after all. Life’s definitely more interesting when he’s doing the driving.
What's it like to kiss Fran?
Uh, how do you know about that? Oh, that’s right, I just admitted it in answer #1. And you probably saw the photos.
Okay, I’m not going to lie . . . Fran is a really good kisser. Like, small earthquakes and major fireworks stuff. I have a feeling that if I could, I’d still be behind that hotel.
Boxers or briefs?
Briefs. I know, I know . . . Matt keeps telling me it’s time to graduate to boxers, but old habits die hard.
Plus, I’ve got about twenty pairs in my underwear drawer, and I don’t want to be wasteful. Global warming and all that, you know?
What kind of office supply would you describe yourself as?
A crisp, clean manilla envelope, capable of presenting a professional and organized façade to the recipient. Unfortunately, as a result of my road trip, the sight of a manilla envelope sends me into a cold sweat. It’s really quite unfortunate. If I were the kind of person who uses words like “sucks,” I’d say it sucks. But I don’t say stuff like that, of course.
So there you guys have it! Thank you, Luke, for letting me pester you and congrats, Antony on another release! This one hits shelves today, so get on it!
