It’s Halloween season, so……did you wear a costume? What was it?

Yes-I was Cat Jesus. I had an old Jesus costume and some cat ears and one thing led to another.

Do you even lift?

Yes- I’ve been lifting spirits every day my whole life. (Editor’s Note: Awwww…)

It’s Halloween season, so…in that spirit, would you rather be covered in spiders, or live in a world without tacos?

Tacos are fine, so it wouldn’t be too hard to live without them.

Do you even lift?

I do, my friends and I do challenges to keep ourselves motivated
