Any time I have to clean up after other people I turn into a Grumpasaurus Rex.

I would be a burrito because you are what you eat.
Do you have a nickname?
My immediate family calls me Lissy because little kids can’t pronounce my name for some reason and they all just grew up that way. But it’s weird when people outside my family call me that so please just call me Elissa or the situation will become incredibly uncomfortable for both of us.

Anything I do before I’ve had coffee.
