Proustian questions and Venetian masks (1)

Party game…
Antonio: I think we should do a Proust questionnaire.
Cecilia: What, on everyone? Too time consuming.
Antonio: How about one question for each person at random? And we video their responses. Like they do in Inside Actors' Studio.
Cecilia: Some of the guests are publicity-shy.
You must not know who I am...
Antonio: OK. So they wear Venetian, you know...
Cecilia: Blinds?
Antonio: Venetian masks. I have a collection.
