Driving in Houston.

Just walk away.

Drama.

All questions in general.

Don’t watch TV shows at all.

What do you need to learn to make time for? 
Refer to first answer above.

What trap do you keep falling victim to?
Buying stuff on Amazon that turns out to be junk.

If the world had an apocalypse, could you hunt for your own food?
Well yes, if the apocalypse had crickets or locust. I’m sure I could whip up a good gumbo.

All of them. Don’t watch TV.

A bar and I don’t mean monkey bars.

What do you do when you’re stuck in traffic? 
Mostly wonder why the WAZE application didn’t tell me about the traffic jam I am stuck in.

Keurig cups. I am always running out and drink 3-4 cups a day!

Helicopter rides. You’re out of your minds. Don’t do it. Also — simply looking down from a tall building. Stop it.

What would be your dream car?
Porsche Carrera GT or the Ferrari F40. Would be a nice 10 year work anniversary gift from John and Cheryl. Color optional!

What’s something new you recently learned about yourself? 
At the age of 45, I’m not learning much!

I do Breaking Bad every couple of years.  Also, I Survived and Something Bit Me is just straight up great TV.

My truck.  I love my Ford F150 and it doesn’t get nearly the attention that it deserves.  Sad.
