Do you have a nickname? What is it?
S: Boon – when my dad was a kid it was his nickname, so when I was born I became “little boon.”

What is one food that you will not eat?
S: My mom used to make a dish called “slum gum.” It was white bread, canned tomatoes, canned corned and Velveeta cheese. Me and my sisters called it “slug-a-muffin,” it was disgusting. I would sit there and cry as a kid and my mom would wait for me to eat it. My grandma used to make it for her.

Where is the next place you want to visit?

If you had to pick one place in town to take a tourist, where would it be?
S: The NorVa. I can’t even count how many shows I’ve seen down at that place.

Describe your perfect day off.
S: Out on the water jet skiing. We used to have them as a kid and I loved it, and I just bought one.
