Did You Know?

Something many people don’t know about me…

I can’t snap with both hands. I can only snap with my left hand, which is odd because I’m right handed. 

If I were a super-hero, my powers would be…

teleportation so that I could maximize every moment of my life by visiting family and friends all over the world without ever getting stuck in traffic or the TSA security line.
