Who would play you in the Lifetime movie of your life?
Cara: Oooooh… Tina Fey! Ha!
JD: A young Robert Goulet 🙂
If money were no object, where would you live and what would you do?
Cara: I would have tiny houses in myriad locations, along with a guest tiny house for people to stay in when they come to visit. I'd keep being a musician and music camp instructor and offer my guest tiny houses for anyone who needed some down time or a retreat of sorts.
JD: I love where I live. I'd just make a bigger bungalow. I'd start a restaurant for the homeless where they could come and eat for free. I'd cook for people and make dainties, cinnamon buns, squares, cakes, and cookies. And I'd like to be one of the dragons on The Dragon's Den.
If the After-Life exists, what song will be playing when you arrive?
Cara: "Celebration" by Kool and the Gang.
JD: "Spirit in the Sky" by Norman Greenbaum
How often do you do laundry?
