Hello, dear reader, today we have the pleasure of interviewing Ruth Wallace from His Perfect Family. I hope you’ll enjoy meeting her.
Q: Please introduce yourself to our readers.
A: My name is Ruth Campbell-Wallace. I noticed that you didn’t mention my maiden name when you introduced me. It’s important for women to retain ties with their past.
*sniffs and straightens in the chair
Why, I don’t understand people who believe marrying someone could erase their entire past.
Q: How did you meet your spouse?
A: Martin and I met in an office. I’d gone in to interview to be his assistant–
Q: You were his secretary?
A: Don’t interrupt, dear.
*gives the interviewer a baleful look
I was his executive administrative assistant. I organized that man’s life. He wouldn’t be where he is if not for me.
Never underestimate the power of a plan or great organizational skills.
When Martin realized how indispensable I was…
He asked me to marry him. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Q: Do you love your future or past more?
A: What a silly question! Didn’t I just say the past and the future are connected? How do you know what you will become if not for who you were in the past?
And how do you hate your past knowing it’s what will affect who you become in the future?
No, it’s much better to ground yourself in the present, using the experiences of your past to carve the future you want.
Q: What would you wish to know 5 years ago?
A: *sighs deeply
I wish you wouldn’t keep asking me these types of questions.
Fine. I’ll play your little game. If I’d known five years ago that my son was going to die, I would have…
*turns head and discretely wipes the corner of her eyes before facing forward again
I would have spent more time with him. Life is much more fragile than we realize and unfortunately, by the time we do, it’s usually too late.
Q: What would be the title of the book about you—if your worst enemy wrote it?
A: *angles head and gives a frosty glare
I don’t have enemies, darling, only people who have come up against me and failed.
Q: What’s your life motto?
A: Life is too short not to have what you want.
Q: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
A: Why choose one?
If I could live anywhere in the world, I’d live everywhere–within reason, of course, I wouldn’t live in the jungle. I’d change my location every couple of years so I could fully experience each culture before moving on to the next.
Thank you for stopping by today, Ruth. We appreciate the time you spent speaking with us.
Ruth: *arches an eyebrow
I know what you think of me. But I’d like to see what you would have done differently if you’d been the one in my position.
