13 & 1/2 Things You Didn’t Know About Jeremy C. Shipp
1. Everything I know about the past and future I learned from the Flintstones and the Jetsons.
2. My shoe size is 9.5. My elf shoe size is 12 twinkles. But in truth I don’t often wear shoes. I’m like a Hobbit, only my feet are hairier and I’m less likely to go on adventures.
