"What I learned early on is that, love doesn't come from getting something from yourself. It doesn't come from being the popular girl. It doesn't come from getting the boyfriend everyone else wants. It didn't come from joining the right clubs. It came from giving back." -Kimble Bosworth

I have a horrible case of ADD and often exaggerate numbers. I can pilot an innertube down a raging river with remarkable accuracy and I can cook 5 minute oats in under 4 minutes. Occasionally, I survive airplane crash landings. On Fridays, after work, I give marketing advice to growing companies over beers at no charge. I sleep with my eyes open. I have had tea with monks at the Golden Pavillion. I advised the British not to adopt the Euro. My love story has won countless gift baskets from Valentines Day radio call in shows. I once read A Hundred Years of Solitude, Baseball: A History and the entire works of Dr. Seuss in one day and still had time to build an Adirondack chair from a used pallet that evening. Horses  trust me. I am convinced that the reason for civilization's decline is the mansard roof. I died when I was 15. I got better. And, you may not know this, but I invented the cheeseburger.
