The most interesting woman on Reddit

Auf Reddit lief vorhin eine Ask me Anything-Aktion mit dem Sohn einer Dame, die unter anderem mit Alan Ginsberg in den 60ern die Unruhen in Chicago erlebte, als Kind 2 Klassen übersprang und 10 Instrumente spielte, in der David Johnny Carson-Show auftrat, Weltklasse-Falkonierin war, in einem Büro des Playboy gearbeitet hat und damals durch den Lake Michigan auf die Arbeit schwamm, nach der ein Insekt benannt wurde, eine preisgekrönte Werbeagentur gründete und nun im hohen Alter einen Hunter auf Level 85 in World of Warcraft spielt. Und einen Ameisenbären namens Claude besaß sie auch. Und anscheinend ist das tatsächlich alles wahr.

Doing the IAMA for my mom who had the anteater, Claude. Among other highlights, was on the Johnny Carson Show and swam in the Grotto at the Playboy Mansion in the 60's

My mom was thrilled with the response to the photo of her with the anteater. She's staying with me this week, and wanted to give back for all the wonderful praise that Reddit bestowed upon her. So her life is an open book. Ask away. I'll give you a few highlights to get you started...
