TBF – Kenneth Oppel


Five Fun Facts about Ken:

1. I pulled a muscle playing Wii Tennis with my kids.

2. When I was a kid in Halifax I fell through the ice up to my waist; when I made it back home and took off my pants, they stood up by themselves.

3. Terry Trueman and I once climbed Everest; I made it to the summit, but Terry turned back early so he could see the season finale of Lost back at base camp.

4. I don’t like any kind of dips; they’re suspicious and I don’t know where they’ve been.

5. While hiking through Arizona a scorpion bit me on the ankle; luckily Terry Trueman was there to suck out the poison. I wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for him.
