Favorite SOMO memoryMy favorite memory was playing softball in Lees Summit, MO and this game must’ve gone into 3 or 4 extra innings, but we ended up winning by 1 run. The game lasted several hours, but was the most fun I’ve had playing softball.
What else do you enjoy?Something else people should know about me that’s fun and exciting is I love mathematics and solving problems related to math.
