Superpower: Wishing I could fly! Who wouldn’t say flying??
Decade I Would Time Warp Back To: Definitely the late 50’s early 60’s (does that count?). I picture my life being something like a beach party movie, i.e. Gidget and Annette Funicello.
A Perfect Day for Me Would Include: Jetting off to a tropical beach location with my hubby, eating lots of Mexican food, and then watching either the University of Florida or Liberty University win the NCAAF National Championship.
