Sometimes I do this dance that looks like a noodle. Never have I ever taken Lactaid with the first bite. When I think about things to do before I die, winning a prize on the radio comes to mind. There were [like a billion] grey hairs last I checked. The first play I wrote was about the plaque process and I made my friends perform it in second grade. If you need a babysitter, I’m not selling myself well here but I’d actually really like to do that. I’ve been known to cry about the calendar year. I do not have strong opinions about ghosts. My favorite type of bug is I hate bugs and why would you ask me that? I’m sorry my facts aren’t funner but I think this is the best way to get to know each other. Did I mention this is one of those Harry Potter chocolate frog cards? If you wait here long enough, the photo of me will come to life and I’ll start talking to you. Shh. Give it a few minutes.
