What skill would you like to master? The ability to fall asleep at will.
If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do? Buy a house I can call my own.
What are your top three life highlights? 1. Holding each of my nephews for the first time. 2. Buying a new(er) car. 3. Winning employee of the year.
What is your guilty pleasure? Dad jokes. Whether I get a groan or a laugh, it's a win in my book.
What is your least favorite food? Why? Corn. It has no nutritional value and the weird crunchiness of the texture never goes with anything.
If you could be any animal, what would you be? Why? Can I pick a taller human? Yes, I'll go with that.
Would you rather go back in time or in the future? Why? If I could just peek into the future I'd love to see what crazy technology the future world holds. The internet only became commonly available 20 to 25 years ago, I can't wait to see what is available in the next 25 years.
