I’m in love with funny and I try to bring it into every situation I encounter. As a teacher, it helps keep students interested in what’s going on and I get to feel like Chris Rock in the process. Win-win, right? I make weird faces and sound effects accompany my life from making left turns while driving to drawing math diagrams in class. Sometimes I talk and it sounds like the frantic parts of Cab Calloway's Minnie the Moocher. If you don't know, look it up, and you'll either be amazed, curious, shaking your head, or all three.
I’m slightly delusional in that, in my head, I have the skills of Jason Bourne and I practice the safe ones when I walk into rooms or just down the street. So if we meet and my eyes dart all over the place, I’m just looking for spies and double agents. Not that I’m being followed.
My mind is constantly working and I value variety so life does not get boring. I have a strong motor that keeps me going in the face of the absurd and the need for sleep. I get in ridiculous conversations with both kids and adults about ANYTHING, from the best way to eat a Jumbaco to guessing how old Gwen Stefani was (to the day) when she hit stardom.
I throw around Ocean's 11 trilogy references like they were colloquialisms. "He's doing an Irwin Allen."
I coach girls sports for my school and I am slowly getting better at negotiating pre-teen emotions on the court/field.
