I would haunt any place paranormal investigators on tv go to. When they record through their devices and play it back, I’d say, “Look Mom!

I have always been inspired by the movement quality and musicality of the style.    What animal would you be and why?   A toy poodle. My parents have two of them and trust me, they’re living the life.
