Once willingly slid down a water slide into a lake 30 ft deep without knowing swimming, almost drowned the friend trying to save her but managed to "swim" to safety. So wishes to be stuck in a remote island where either enjoys the rest of her life in bliss or HAS to learn swimming to be able to swim back to civilization.
Loves spending time in the kitchen with her husband cooking different cuisines and hopes someday her daughter will join them as well (this one looks the same)
Has challenged herself to run one half marathon every year for the next 50 years
