Moffat County Neighbor: Marilyn Rieser

Name: Marilyn Rieser
Occupation: Certified dental assistant
What should your business card say you do? Everything dental related
Place of birth: Denver
When did you move to Moffat County and what brought you here? 1978. My husband got transferred.
Describe your morning routine. Take care of patients (and co-workers) and make them more comfortable.
How would your friends describe you? Fun, perky and always reliable.
Have you ever had a book change your life? What was it and why? “Still Life with Woodpecker,” (Tom Robbins). I don’t know that it changed my life, I just remember that I really enjoyed it.
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I wanted to be a horse trainer.
If you could invite any four people over for dinner, who would they be, and what would you serve? I would invite co-workers and not any four in particular. I would want them all. I’d serve spaghetti.
What are the three things you can’t live without? My family, my friends and my horses.
What was your most embarrassing moment? I was so proud of my 4-H kids at the Moffat County Fair that I cried.
Which superhero would you be? Absolutely, Wonder Woman.
What’s the worst reason you’ve received/given for breaking up with someone? You’re too good for me.
If you had to give up one of your five senses, which would it be? I think I could live without taste. I’ve eaten well for a long time, so if I had to give it up, I’d know what it tastes like. Maybe I wouldn’t eat so much. I love smelling the rain and the fresh air of Colorado.
What band/performer would you stand in line to get tickets for? Vince Gill. Actually, Chris LaDue, but seeing as how he’s not here …
What music, book or movie are you ashamed to admit you love? I love the “Winnie the Pooh” movies, but I’m not ashamed of that.
What would you do if you won $10
million? Take all my friends to dinner, so I wouldn’t have to make them spaghetti.
Do you think it’s important to vote Tuesday? Yes, I do, because everybody has their feelings about it, and if they don’t get out and take advantage of that, they’re missing their rights as Americans.

Food: Spaghetti with butter and Parmesan
Song: Right now, I love Shania Twain’s song, “Up”
Movie: “Quigley Down Under,” but it’s a close one with the “Wizard of Oz”
Sport to watch: Reining horses
Vacation spot: Punta Colorado, Mexico
TV show: “CSI: Las Vegas”
Spot in Moffat County: Cold Springs
