I like the sound pennies make when they bounce on a sidewalk. I have a piece of a song for every situation and am liable to start singing or dancing on moment's notice. Although I've been warned against it, I've been talking to strangers since I was a child. Someone told my parents that I'd be a politician, but I've disappointed and become a scientist instead. When I first realized that I'm a helpless dork my initial reaction was to give me a wedgie and steal my own lunch money, but I've outgrown that phase and now love the dorkiness. I'm pretty sure the key to happiness is finding the punchline in everything. It's fun to speak in metaphors. Puns are a guilty pleasure. Ethics are how you live. I think the best way to make the world a better place is to treat everyone as if they are somebody's precious child. Some people think that it's weird that I like taking pictures of food, but I don't give a damn, I made that chicken, it was delicious, and I still like to look at it.
