My favorite animal is…

A seahorse because they seem almost like mythical creatures to me.

One thing I've learned about life from kids is...

How we once all had to learn everything from scratch and that it takes time. We are always learning and it's very cool to watch someone learn something new.

The best live music show I ever saw was...

The one I remember the most (because it was one of my firsts) was "They Might Be Giants." I had a good time because I knew every single word. Yikes!
