Bonus Questions –

On an African Safari, which animal would you smuggle back and why? A small monkey of course.  That way my dog could chase it around the house.

Water Balloons or Water Guns? Water Guns just because they are easier to fill up.

If a Wood Chuck could chuck wood, how many days would it take him? 3 days to chuck

If you have any other random facts you would like the world to know about you.

I have been wearing Vans since I was about 9 (my first pair were purple)

I was a 10lb baby.  And I have only gained 145lbs since…

I was a skater before I ever started riding.  Had 3 half pipes in my yard and once I started riding I tore those down and built a track to ride.
