Our humor together is great and we understand each other and nothing is my least favorite because she is one of the greatest people in my life. If there were a movie about the two of you, who would you play? The movie would be Ferris Buller’s Day Off. I would be Ferris and Abby would be Cameron. She drives me around and is forced to do things with me, but it always turns into an adventure. If both of you were stuck on a deserted island, who would survive and who would go crazy? Abby would definitely survive. I would just do the first thing to try and survive and do something dumb and die or risk my life for the both of us and die trying.
