“I interview myself in my car when no one’s in there. I pretend Oprah or someone is interviewing me and I respond to Oprah’s questions. Sometimes they’re real interview questions; other times not. Like “Why did you reach for an orange instead of the banana?” And I’ll say, “Well, Oprah, I think it’s because…” I’ll have these thoughts about really mundane events, just wonder about the little things. Maybe I’ll wonder, “well, why did you reach for that orange, Polo? You probably had a reason.” Then that always turns into Oprah’s voice.”
