Life Itself

I Take the Colbert Questionert

I suppose now I am truly known.

Crazy-eyed Stephen Colbert created with Midjourney.

I used to take all kinds of online tests and quizzes and then post the results to my old blog. Now that I’m restarting my blogging habit, I thought it would be fun to bring back some of that. And since I watch a lot of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, I figured I’d start with the Colbert Questionert.

The Colbert Questionert is a set of 15 questions that guests of the Late Show answer to be “truly known.”

Here are my answers.

Best sandwich?

I know this is a subject of intense debate. And I know people way smarter than me and more knowledgeable in arcane sandwich lore have tried to answer this riddle. But hear me out.

The best sandwich is the Barros Luco. Thinly sliced steak, melted cheese, freshly baked rolls. Simple, but perfect.

What’s one thing you own that you really should throw out?

I own many things that I really should throw out. But the one thing on my mind right now is an old shirt I brought with me when I moved to the US. The shirt still fits, but it’s worn and a bit faded. It doesn’t look so great anymore, yet somehow I can’t get myself to part with it.

What is the scariest animal?

Humans. They do crazy, scary stuff.

Apples or oranges?

I’m not a big fan of fresh fruit, so I find it hard to choose. I love the flavor of oranges, but I like the texture of apples. I’ll go with oranges, even if you can’t put peanut butter on them.

Have you ever asked someone for their autograph?

I have! Our parents took my sister and me to see Roberto Nicolini when we were kids. My sister asked him for his autograph after the show, and I was jealous that I didn’t do the same. After that, I never hesitated to ask for autographs! Now I have signed comics, albums, and photos!

What do you think happens when we die?

We cease to exist but live on in our friends and family’s hearts.

Favorite action movie?

Anything from the MCU. And from those, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is still high on my list of favorites.

Favorite smell?

Peanut butter. And most likely because I still remember dreaming about smelling peanut butter and waking up thinking I never sensed anything like that before (or dreamed about smelling something before.)

Least favorite smell?


Exercise: worth it?

I think so, yes.

Flat or sparkling?

I used to be on the sparkling side. Now I’m all about flat.

Most used app on your phone?

Camera app. Gotta capture those moments!

You get one song to listen to for the rest of your life: what is it?

Hazy Shade of Winter by Simon & Garfunkel.

What number am I thinking of?

I always thought that Colbert, being the professional he is, would be thinking about the following question in the questionnaire, which has the number 5. That is my answer.

Describe the rest of your life in 5 words.

Fully loving every single day.
