The IF Factor: Questions Answered #121-130

121. If you were on trial and someone you know (who is not a lawyer) had to act as your legal representative, who would you want to defend you?

Shockingly, one of my closest friends is a lawyer. However, since I cannot pick him, I will go with another friend who has the type of personality that can acquire anything and really has an act for being charming and persuasive. 

122. If you could change one of your personality traits, what would it be?

Not being very welcoming in the morning. I'd like to change this trait, and I am working on doing so.

123. If you could adopt one personality trait from someone you know, what would you take, and from whom?

I have a few family members and friends who have the type of personality that is free-spirited. They are able to simply pick up and go. They are adventurous and willing to take these adventures on the whim. Unfortunately, I am too much of an analyzer that takes finances, repercussions, consequences, and any other backlash into consideration. It has it's downfalls as well, but being more spontaneous would be welcomed. 

124. If you could have a romance with any fictional character, who would it be?

This is super weird. After all, wouldn't I be selecting based on the real life woman playing the character? Nah uh. Nope. No way. A married man knows better. Especially one whose wife reads this blog. I'll go with Princess Jasmine from Aladdin. No loop holes there to get me in trouble.

125. If you could have avoided living one year from your past, which year would you like to have eliminated?

I really don't like to erase anything as every moment helps make you the person you currently are. However, if I could have avoided 2004, that would have been great. Yes, not having to experience that Boston Red Sox comeback on my beloved New York Yankees would have been nice to miss.

126. If you could commit one crime without being caught, what crime would you commit?

Another weird question. I wouldn't want to do anything really crazy like murder or assault. That's just insane. I'd go with Grand Theft Auto of a police car. Just to see what it's like to put sirens on and get through traffic.

127. If you could be the parent of one famous person, who would you want it to be?

It would be nice to be the parent of Derek Jeter. Imagine how proud Mr. and Mrs. Jeter must be. But I'll go with being the parent of Mark Zuckerberg. Can you say early retirement?

128. If you could ensure that your children never have one experience that you have had, what would it be?

My high school experience. In going to one of the most dangerous high schools in New York State during my time there, I would hope to have my child have a more enjoyable, rewarding, and safer high school experience than I did.

129. If you could eat one food in any quantity for the rest of your life with no ill effects whatsoever, what food would you choose?

Tacos or chicken wings. I could eat both in high volumes. And with no ill effects, would probably do so.

130. If you had to eliminate one season permanently (spring, summer, autumn, or winter), which would go?

Easy, winter. I hate the winter, the cold weather, and especially snow.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 2/11/24

3 Up 1. Super Bowl - That was an entertaining game! I'm definitely your football casual, so appropriately adjust your take in reading this. I rarely dive into the Super Bowl other than for social interest and custom, but I genuinely was glued to my seat watching this event - game and halftime performance. Well done, NFL.  Also, a record of 123M people watching it - that's pretty good, too.  1a. Patrick Mahomes/Chiefs - Congratulations to the Chiefs on a rarity in the NFL - back-to-back titles! Even more so, is the props towards Mahomes. Again, a super causal here, but that dude pulls me in. He's amazing.  1b. Usher Performance - I was all about it. Amazingly, I'm now the age of the target demographic of the NFL for these halftime shows. Regardless, Usher killed it!  2. Annie Ray - We often don't see these Grammys handed out, but kudos to Annie Ray for receiving a Grammy for her amazing work in music education. Definitely give this a quick read.  3. Record Stocks -
