When He Was a Little Boy...
...he ate live slugs, for fun. (not pictured)
...he nearly won the physical fitness test for his entire grade school but claims he lost because of reverse discrimination (the winner was a tiny gymnast that only beat him in flexibility- he won in speed & strength).
...he could type the alphabet in under 3 seconds with only 2 fingers.
...he and his cousin buried a dead squirrel up to its neck and hid in the bushes to watch people's reactions as they approached it on the trail.
...he trained his dog, Scout, and claims his children will be well behaved due to his superior training skills.
...he got suspended twice in the 7th grade- once for fighting and once for truancy.
...he sucked a binkie until age 4. His parents refused to buy more and he finally became so disgusted that he threw it away on his own. His Mom promptly took the garbage out and it was a good thing too because he began rummaging through it several hours later.
...he shared a bunk bed with his brother, Chris.
...he was voted "class clown" in both middle and high school...he's not particularly proud of this because he considers most class clowns to be of the "party-guy" type...which he isn't!
...he first dunked a basketball at age 14.
...he took the liberty of painting the neighbor's house including their windows, sliding glass door, and new redwood picnic table.
...he caused a scene on a field trip to the state capitol when he asked a congressman for an autograph and accidentally snapped the man's finger in his clipboard.
...he had a paper route for 2 years, his Dad rolled the papers for him every morning.
