1. My favorite “meal” is a “Chocolate Chip Sandwich” which is made up of dark chocolate chips on warm or toasted buttered bread.
2. The most difficult thing in my life is to not adopt every dog I see.
3. When I eat corn on the cob, I eat 1 row at a time (with my teeth), leaving the cob meticulously clean.
