THAT is a very subjective question. The thing I like best about myself is my desire to keep pushing and growing and learning. I like that I question a lot, because the more I question, the more I learn.


  1. I have a couple comments. First, I tried to video chat with you from mom's iPad. She had the wrong number so I video chatted with some random girl, and it was really awkward. Then we put in the right number and you didn't answer. (This was when we were trying to book the cruise.)

    Second, the key to touching your nose with your tongue is to roll back your upper lip so that it doesn't get in the way. When I do that, I can pull it off.

    1. I knew that I didn't answer. (Kim (Todd's sister) was holding my phone for me, and she was confused by it.) I didn't know that you talked to a random girl. That makes me laugh.

      Still can't do it, but I'm okay with it. I have other special talents... I can't think of any right now, but I'm sure I have at least one.

  2. I think there is something pink within ten feet of your feet. like maybe the inside of you ear...

    1. Ah. Very true. But nothing I could see... :)
