How can you ever really know me? Or anyone else for that matter? I don’t think you really can… you react differently depending on the circumstance. Like that scene in Stuart Little where Taylor Negron plays a toy clothes salesman and tells Stuart’s mom (Geena Davis) about the “many moods of Ben”. I love that scene! People are like that… I’m like that. The ‘mood’ I’m in for you may be different than the mood for Taylor or for Geena or for my wife. We get so set into different response ruts… but I digress.
My name is Terry Grignon and I’m relatively average except for the things that are odd about me. Hmmmm… what can I say?
Perhaps the best way of learning who I am is a smattering of my favourite things (‘course this doesn’t always run true; think of Maria in the Sound of Music):
A favourite joke, perhaps:

Maybe a favourite recipe:

Favourite card game:
Bridge! Although I enjoy Newfie Euchre when there aren’t any Bridge players
and I could go on… perhaps you’ll see more of me in my golb?
