Best kept secret from High School that you are ready to spill the beans about.
 As if we didn’t have enough studying to do for our AP US History class, several students and I went to Mr. Roland Williams house late one night and redecorated it with TP. After the deed was done, we were feeling bad that Chris Jessop couldn’t be there with us that night, so we went to the Maceys grocery store in south Orem where Chris was stocking shelves to let him in on our little secret. When we left Maceys, we ended up TP’ing Chris Jessop’s car in the parking lot. Ahhh… Too much time, too much TP, and not enough homework. Chris was the only responsible one that night. ;-p I spilled the beans at the last reunion in 1999, but here it is again… As my own contribution to a class prank, I wrote a fake and harmless computer virus. Thayne Harbaugh helped me secretly unleash it on the word processing lab during the final week of school. The virus made the computer user beat the computer in a game of Tic-Tac-Toe before allowing them to use WordPerfect. We got a lot of chuckles out of watching students begrudgingly submit to playing a game or two in order to work on their papers. The lab administrators were never able to figure out how to remove it. I almost spilled the beans that week when one of the lab TA’s asked me for tips on how to remove the “TicTac-Toe Virus.” Thayne and I quietly removed it on the last day of school and never told anyone until 1999.

Adopting our daughter, Kaylee, in 2002

Embarasing moment,

In the spring of 1987, I was finishing up a Track workout in the MVHS stadium and decided to do one more 400 meter rep with Greg Jolley and Brandon Kerr. As we rounded the first turn, we came up behind several members of the girls track team walking down the track. As I started to maneuver around the girls, someone shouted “Look out!” just in time to have Jill Chappell accidentally jump right in front of me. I smacked right into her, went flying into the air, and landed hard on the track. Jill was just fine but, needless to say, I was pretty embarrassed.
