Odd and unknown talents: I used to be able to throw rocks at great distances with alarming accuracy. Once, I threw a stone the size of a golf ball and hit a tree two blocks away down the street. I thought it was luck, so I tried again, aiming at the mailboxes near the tree. Hit them dead center. Shoulda been a quarterback.

Surviving not only Marine Corps Boot Camp, but a Marine Corps enlistment and an Afghanistan deployment, to boot. Marrying someone who can still surprise me, three years later.
