A wonderful, sometimes silly, friend invited me to participate in this thing they call a “me-me.” [Presumably because it’s all about “me”–hey! Maybe we should call it a “VGR” (those orthodox e’copalians know what I mean…)] I don’t have any one to bother [see “T”] with returning the favor, however I’ll include my answers here nevertheless.

Available only to my wife of 24+ years.
