I alternate from being deep and intense in conversing political/philosophical issues and being oddly humorous. I have a highly developed sense of sarcasm and can not help but point out life’s little ironies. I find humor in most situations. I also like to play jokes on people, and can usually get away with them, because no one suspects the serious guy. I taught history at a Jr College for about 4 years and loved it, but would have to go back to school and spend lots of money to do it more. Still, I clearly like lecturing/teaching about things. Or at least story telling.
I have two dogs. A mutt that I found in the park 5 years ago and a golden retriever who is loving but extremely goofy. They are both loving and well behaved but, well, fall far short of the dog I used to have who would carry groceries home from the store in her mouth. If you have any clue how to teach the golden to fetch, you will gain extra points.
I live in Church Hill across from a large park and have recently taken an active role in organizing events in the park. We started an outdoor movie series and show 3 or 4 films a year. And we are also working towards landscaping the park better. My neighbors thanked me by sneaking an official looking sign into the park naming it after me. This sign has somehow remained for 3 plus years now and is landscaped around. I love it and love my neighbors.
When I think about my life, I realize that I have a lot. I have great friends. I live in a good neighborhood.
