How many cats do you dream of having when you are 80 years old? I would like to have one cat and one dog and see whether the cat becomes more dog-like or the dog becomes more cat-like, for science.

Senior Quote: "eating ice cream isn't always the answer, but it is always a suggestion"

Describe with at least three sentences or 30 words, your experience with boba in lemonade: Drinking lemonade with boba is a whole new level of the boba experience. In order to get the highest quality, I recommend the honey lemonade + boba from Din Tai Fung. Once you try the perfect duo of sweet lemony goodness and chewy tapioca, you’ll never question the sanity of this combination ever again.

Senior Quote: "Fake it 'till you make it"

Describe what the dream pizza in at least 3 sentences or 30 words: From a basic start of cheese and tomato sauce, add pepperoni and Italian sausage for meat. Onions and mushrooms for veggies (slightly cook them before hand to get rid of raw taste). Then add Cholula hot sauce after pizza is cooked for spice and to have the vinegary-ness cut through the fat. Just perfect.

A sentence or three on what your role is: I’m a retired PiB member who sticks around still trying to help out wherever I can.

Loved that they still let me be involved, haha.
