ML: What was your favorite part of 2018?

ML: If you could invent your own dessert, what would it be made of?

BW:  I would add on to Jell-O by placing chocolate chips in it.

ML: Have you ever had a horrible Christmas? If so, why?

BW: Not necessarily horrible, but embarrassing because Silly String was sprayed into my face one year.
