In The Easy Chair: Brian Harrison


AGE 40.

OCCUPATION Owner of Hootie’s Café, Pawcatuck.

RESIDENCE Pawcatuck.

RIGHT NOW I’M IN THE MIDDLE OF Working on the business.

BORN, RAISED & GREW UP IN Pawcatuck.

FAVORITE WAY TO SPEND MY TIME With family, including my girlfriend and her family.

PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT Owning my own business.

WHAT I’D LIKE TO BE REMEMBERED FOR Always being there for my family, friends and my girlfriend.

ON MY BUCKET LIST Flying a helicopter.

ALWAYS IN MY POCKET Cigar lighter.

WHAT I WANTED TO BE WHEN I GREW UP A physical therapist.

PERSON OR EXPERIENCE THAT HAS INFLUENCED ME THE MOST My parents.

FAVORITE AUTHOR Can’t narrow it to one.

LAST BOOK READ “Bruce Lee: The Biography.”

FAVORITE SONG Again, too many to narrow.

FAVORITE MOVIE “Blazing Saddles.”

FAVORITE TV SHOW “Hell’s Kitchen.”

FAVORITE PET My first Lab, Red.

FAVORITE MEAL Mom’s oven-baked chicken.

AMOUNT OF TIME I SPEND A DAY ON FACEBOOK Too much.

TRAIT I MOST ADMIRE Hard work ethic.

PET PEEVE Laziness.

FAVORITE QUOTATION Things can’t be all that bad because I am still on this side of the grass.

MY FAVORITE THING ABOUT OUR LITTLE CORNER OF THE WORLD Living right on the ocean, because I’m a water rat and couldn’t live more than 20 minutes from it. Those who live in the Midwest couldn’t understand!

CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT Change of seasons.

LITTLE-KNOWN FACT ABOUT ME I hate heights.

BEST ADVICE I EVER RECEIVED Only you can stop you from becoming successful.

ADVICE I BEST LIKE TO GIVE We all make mistakes; we are only human.

IF I RULED THE WORLD I WOULD Step down because no one person should have that ability. We all have too many faults.

IF I WON THE LOTTERY, THE FIRST THING I WOULD DO IS Take care of my family, then take everyone I know on a week’s vacation.

I DRIVE A 2003 tan Chevrolet Tahoe.

I WISH I DROVE A Ford Super Duty F-350 with an extended cab and full-size bed.

ALWAYS IN MY FRIDGE Bottles of water and bagels.

IF I COULD HAVE DINNER AND A CONVERSATION WITH ANYONE IN THE WORLD I WOULD CHOOSE Bruce Lee. He’s a man who developed himself into a household name throughout the world by taking what he learned in life and changing it to make it his own. While doing all that, he never took anyone or anything for granted, he stayed humble and he always kept learning. He was never satisfied and never put himself above anyone.
