Growing up, and even persisting to this day, my circle of friends is relatively small. People sometimes say that I’m a hard person to read, until they get to know me, and then they see me for the outgoing, boisterous, and sometimes irreverent person that I am.
As a child, one of my favorite cartoon characters was Popeye the Sailor Man. When he powered up with his can of spinach and saved the day, I felt that he was invincible. Because of Popeye, I’ve always felt that spinach was the powerhouse of vegetables.
