you’ve got questions? I’ve got answers

Camikaos from Mommified Me put out this meme, and I took the bait.

1.)Q. Can you cook?

A. Can I? Yes. Do I? Veerrrry rarely.

3.)Q. What talent do you wish you had?

A. I really wish I was a better language learner.

4.)Q. Favorite place?

A. I want to say something fancy, like Rome. But it’s probably more true to say my bed.
