    This interview was awesome! I learned a lot about you two and Liz. I would love to meet you three (yup can’t forgive Valerie Jarret aka Liz).

    Ugh, I couldn’t get past the first 5 minutes… hearing people be flirty with one another makes my skin crawl… I’m sure it was a great interview tho. *thumbs up*

    • Flirty? The relationship between Terryn and I is more “big brother/annoying-ass—but smart—little sister” than anything else. If she heard someone thought we were flirting with each other she’d dry heave, lol
