I’m participating in Lori’s “Getting to know you” distributed interview project, so:
GET TO KNOW ME!
- What’s something people would never guess about you?
- When do you know it’s love?
- What talent do you wish you had (and why)?
- Your doctor has just told you that you have a month to live, what would you do in that stretch of time?
- Last thing you do before going to bed?
I guess the fact that I disclaim my past as a Drum Major in my About section rules that one out.
I think what people never DO guess about me is that I sang in glee club with my wife during college. They have a vague understanding that I’m this goofy, outgoing, attention-seeker but added a layer of harmonizing in a group setting completes the picture for most folks.
I’m at peace with my inner band/chorus nerd, so it’s cool.
I think you absolutely know at first sight, but sometimes your head gets in the way.
Our hearts and our ability to love/be compassionate is almost infinite; it’s what sets us apart from wild beasts.
I knew Jenn (my wife) was something special the first time I saw her and I think the same thing holds true for Raelyn (my daughter) and Stinkbottom McGee (the unborn son).
I honestly believe this. Your heart knows it’s love LONG before your head can process all that emotion.
So I guess I’m just a sappy, sentimental old fool.
Maybe you never know it’s love, but if you feel it’s love that’s what it’s all about.
Previously I would have said juggling, but I conquered that skill.
I’m always trying to improve my musicality, so I’d probably learn my guitar and piano scales a bit more as well.
Basically, I’d try to amplify my artistic gifts, such as they are.
Fly to Hawaii with the family, rent the most extravagant, secluded beach house with a lagoon and enjoy my wife and kids.
I’d probably also throw a killer party – one that truly annoyed the hell out of my neighbors (though they’d be invited) – to celebrate life.
If I knew in advance I’d want to go out someplace beautiful with people I love having fun.
Put the dog to bed, turn the TV down and tell Jenn that I love her.
Best marital/relationship advice ever: Never go to bed angry.
Have a great holiday weekend everyone!
