What’s your favourite cheesy pick-up line? Have you ever used it for real?
Don’t I know you? And no I’ve never used it, I’ve never used any pick-up lines, I am old-fashioned in this area and prefer to wait for the man to ask me.
You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What colour would you be and why?
Sky blue. I love the big wide Canadian Prairie skies that are beautiful shades of blue that light up the day and make me feel alive and happy.
