Anyone that likes “Man vs. Wild” is good-to-go in my book. A number of other things we have in common. However, the fact that your senior superlative was related to American Idol makes me feel WAY! too old, and I’m NOT that old!
I’m looking forward to hearing and learning more about you as time progresses. Hopefully I’ll get to meet you in person sometime soon.
