What was the funniest thing that has ever happened to you?  "I tend to think that everything is funny (really), but when I was a freshman in high school, an anonymous ‘friend’ put up signs around school indicating that I was looking for a date to homecoming. I didn’t realize this happened until I started getting phone calls from a few girls or their older sisters calling on their behalf. I didn’t think it was too funny at the time, but now I do. Being a naive freshman, I really missed a great opportunity to jumpstart my high school romance career!"
