Day 2 – Thirty day challenge

4) A habit that you wish you didn’t have
Otis: “I wish I didn’t fall over when I’m trying to stand up, but I do.”

5) A time you thought about ending your own life
Otis: “Wow, big question! I’m quite a happy guy and am trying to live in the now, which is generally very good. I do get sad sometimes, and do throw tantrums for no apparent reason, at least no reason I can ever remember after five minutes, but that’s part of life. So no, never had a moment like that.”

6) A recent picture of you and 15 interesting facts about yourself
Otis: “How recent? Here’s one from the ‘sustainability expo’ in Hamburg last month:

Fifteen interesting facts about myself:

  1. I do love blueberries, cheese and pears
  2. I do say ‘I do’, and my dad claims that I said ‘Life. Death. I die!’ one morning.
  3. I love licking dogs, or at least pointing out every dog I see
  4. I point a lot
  5. I don’t speak. My long term goal is to speak at least two languages fluently though.
  6. Climbing up stairs poses no problem to me, but I struggle coming down.
  7. I’ve been to New Zealand already, in fact, was born there and half my family lives there, which I miss. Hello, Oma & Opa, Jess, Bee and Rebekah! And Rod!
  8. My dad thinks I’m half dog, half human. That would probably make him a dog.
  9. I’m absolutely fascinated by flowers, not scientifically, but more in a general grabbing sense.
  10. From a young age I have ben quite interested in guitars.
  11. I am the god of small things and am intrigued by the tiniest crumbs or specks that other people happily ignore.
  12. When I scrunch up my nose, people think I’m discontent with them. Not so, quite the opposite, just a silly habit of mine. I’ve done that ever since I was a baby!
  13. When I squint, people think I can’t see.  But I’m just busy figuring out how to save humankind.
  14. I can’t count.”

    Very cool, Otis. I reckon you’ve got a good head on your shoulders, and a fine hound for a papa.
