Who would play you in the movie of your life? Meryl Streep

What is an interesting factoid about yourself? I used to run a catering business, and I catered a party in St. Charles that was for quarterback Jim McMahon when the Bears won the Super Bowl. This couple won a bid for him to be there for dinner as part of a charity fundraiser.
