Interview Questions for CHARLES BAKER "DILL" HARRIS

Q:  "How did you come by the nickname "Dill"?  (I don't believe this is answered anywhere in the novel, and I've always wondered if it referred to the spice or the pickle or something else.)

Q:  "Where do you and Scout plan to go on your honeymoon?"  (After all, Dill has already asked her to marry him.)

Q:  "What do you plan to do when you grow up?"  (Since the character of Dill was based on author Truman Capote, I would expect his answer to be "a writer.")

Q:  "If you could spend five minutes alone with Boo, what would you do with him?"  (I expect that Dill would have plenty of questions to ask Boo.)

Q:  "How long were you planning to stay under Scout's bed after you had run away from home?"  (Dill didn't come out until he started getting poked with a broom.)
