3. What’s the best board game ever?


4. You’ve been tasked with redesigning the human body, what features are you adding or removing?

A prehensile tail.

5. Are you going to keep wearing your mask in places where you are no longer required to?

The Eagle Scout me says yes but I am already getting pretty lax around mask stuff now that I am double Moderna-ed. I was in Mesa County last weekend and most of Grand Junction and Fruita have stopped wearing masks altogether . It was an odd feeling seeing folks in stores with no masks. I am happy the CDC has eased up on mask restrictions but I am concerned as the unvaxxed will go maskless as well and there is no way of knowing who those folks are – it will make going to crowded events a mask worthy event if at all until 70% or more get vaccinated.

Eddie Money’s “Take Me Home Tonight.” Not really thrilled that I am stuck with that.
