50 Things You May Not Know about Me

  1. I play golf and hockey left-handed (and do everything else right-handed).
  2. I have a twin brother.  (No, we’re not identical.)

  4. Once upon a time, I could shoot ten shots from a pair of six-shooter pistols in ten seconds.
  5. My first “real” job was as a cashier at a local gas station.
  6. My favourite cold summer drink is a caramel frappucino at Starbucks.
  7. I’ve ridden a camel.
  8. I’ve driven a quad.

  12. The only team sport I’ve ever played is rugby and I only played one game.
  13. I’ve never owned a TV (and grew up without a TV too).
