Simple Kind of Guy

For one of my graduate school classes this semester, we had to introduce ourselves to the class using Flipgrid (this is a great web resource!). One of the questions which we had to answer was "If you were to write an autobiography, what would be the title?" Personally, I do not think that I am that interesting of a person for me to write an autobiography. If my life were a sitcom, I would not even be the main character - I would be the next door neighbor who comes over once in awhile to drop off mail or to borrow a rake. Quite honestly, I am just a simple kind of guy - that is what I would have as the title of my autobiography! However, that is not to say that I am ashamed of being a simple kind of guy, because actually I am quite proud that I am not a very complicated kind of person. 

Here are some ways in which I am just a simple kind of guy:
  • Favorite ice cream flavor: Vanilla. 
  • Favorite color: Blue. Do not ask me which shade - blue is blue to me.
  • Favorite snack: Rice-Krispie treats, because it is just three ingredients: butter, marshmallows, and Rice Krispies.
  • Favorite superhero: Superman, because in terms of powers, he's got them all. He is neither moody nor emotionally complex like Batman - with Batman, I feel like I would be walking on eggshells around him. Also, if you were stuck on a deserted island, Superman could rescue you (unless there was Kryptonite) - what can Spiderman do for you?
  • Favorite potato chips: Original Pringles. I hate any potato chips with flavor on them, e.g., Takis, Doritos, sour cream and onion, etc. 
  • I am more of a beer person, instead of wine, but if I had my choice, I would prefer drinking a Coke.
  • I prefer to wear Birkenstocks instead of shoes solely because they are more comfortable to wear.
  • When I go out to eat with friends, I will usually suggest the same three restaurants.
  • As much I as enjoy being social at gatherings and interacting with people, I am equally happy eating a cookie by myself in the corner of the room.
  • I love the Three Stooges - slapstick humor at its best. Being hit with pies is funny to me.
  • My friend who is an interior designer says that I am all "straight lines and edges," which apparently is an interior designer term for people who rarely re-arrange their furniture and like simple spaces. I did not realize that there was an actual official term for people like me.
