Hockey, soccer, golf.

My most unique one is I like to build LEGO.
What is one thing about you that surprises people?
I ride a motorcycle.

Taking a ride in a fighter jet.
What would your friends say your most annoying habit is?
I make everything a competition.
If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you win a gold medal for?
Google searches in a day.
Which of your scars has the best story behind it?
I had to have a plastic surgeon put my lip back together. I split it all the way to my nose from tripping over my brother and falling into a Jeep bumper.
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Where is your dream travel destination?
If you were stuck on an island and could only take three things, what would they be?
Lighter, knife, and a bible.
