Interviewing someone you know for a feature profile is so much easier than interviewing a stranger. You know all the right questions to ask to make for an interesting story:
"Is it true that when you interviewed for your second job and you were asked if you would sleep with the cooks, you said 'only at Christmas parties...' And you still didn't get the job?"
My neighbor L., the chef, would have to answer "yes" to the above question.
Of course I've already figured out how to work her new pink refrigerator into the lead of the story.
The Swedish verb for the day is att svara. It means to answer.
