I enjoy reading books. I sucked my thumb until I was ten. I don’t like seafood, except for shrimp, and then only if I can have it with cocktail sauce. My freckles come out in the summertime. I grew up in the Adirondack Mountains and I love to be outside. Sometimes I have nightmares that I have gum in my mouth which I cannot spit out. I have a pet cat, named Cat Stevens. I went to school for black and white film photography, and so, naturally, I now work at a hardware store in the flooring department. My favorite food is pizza. Sir Francis Drake is my fourteenth cousin, once removed. I had this teacher in high school, and sometimes he called me Aristotle. Sometimes he called me Grasshopper. Grasshopper stuck with my friends.
