Coolest Thing I've Done: Witnessed the birth of a close friend's son, Jacob Taylor Wallace. And I actually cut the umbilical cord.

Most Embarrassing Moment: I was a young woman, I was trying to get the attention of a handsome young man.

I was walking backwards in a very cool, smooth manner trying to look cute, when I turned around and head-butted a tree! Needless to say, the guy and his friend saw this and had a good laugh on my account.

Another For The Road: At a show we played at, I thanked WLRS onstage for hosting the show and supporting us. The trouble was it was a WTFX 100.5 the Fox show!
