What skill would you like to master?
I would like to master speaking at least one to two more languages. My mom’s side of the family came from Spain and early on she tried to teach my sister and I Spanish but it never took, and now I sincerely wish that I would’ve paid more attention!
Where is the most interesting place you’ve been?
I had the pleasure of going to South Africa for two weeks to visit my then girlfriend, now wife, Micaela. We went to Johannesburg and Cape Town. We were able to go on a safari outside of the city which was amazing. Cape Town is the most beautiful place that I have seen. We were able to whale watch, go on wine tastings, visit the top of Table Mountain and take a tour around the city. It was an amazing trip and really opened my eyes to the joys of traveling to see places in this big and beautiful world.
Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck, or 100 duck-sized horses?
What weapons can I bring to this fight? As a guy who grew up with horses, I want no part of 100 duck-sized horses. Those things would do some damage! I would take my chances with a horse-sized duck and the worst thing I have to worry about is a bigger beak. Shouldn’t be a problem but again, do I get to bring weapons? Bat? Knife? Nunchucks?
