1. English is my second language.
2. Once a year, I make the world’s best oliebollen. Seriously.
3. I was robbed at gunpoint in a dark alley in Michigan in 1974.
4. They got away with my wallet and 2 dollars.
5. I once smuggled guns and a puppy across the US border.
6. That’s completely unrelated to number 3.
7. I gave up golf in seventh grade after Norman Collins fractured my skull and blinded my left eye with a 9-iron.
8. After regaining consciousness, I gave up on Norman too. With friends like that…
9. The only time I didn’t have to spell my name was at the Hertz counter in Amsterdam.
10. That’s right, they got the double “A” single “S” thing in one go.
