He’s a forthcoming and giving guy, who shares his…unique…perspective on work and life on his Facebook account. Here are some of Nick’s FB thoughts this month:

Quarantine Lesson #34: It takes 360 licks to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Roll Pop. I also learned no matter how bored you are, it is never a good idea to eat a Tootsie Roll Pop of unknown age and origin found under the seat of your car.

Quarantine Lesson #33: I have learned that having a massive spider drop in on you in the shower can be an amazing cardio workout. I also now know why they don’t let you stand up on water slides.

Quarantine Lesson #32: No matter how much they complain,there is no written rule that says you have to warn your neighbors before engaging them in a giant slingshot water balloon fight.

Quarantine Lesson #31: Never again will I take for granted the value of a hug. If I had known the last time I hugged some of you would be the last time I would hug you for such a long time, those moments would have been way more awkward.

So…these murder hornets, do you send them a list of names or what? How’s that work?

Quarantine Lesson #25: It is wise to keep a pair of“Door-Pants” next to the front door, just for those surprise midday Amazon deliveries. Thank you, Steve (my UPS guy) for the suggestion.

Quarantine Lesson #23: The five-second rule does not apply to Pop-Tarts. If you are walking through your house and come across a Pop-Tart lying on the floor, it is perfectly acceptable to pick it up and eat it. Mmmmmmmm, floor Pop-Tarts.... Words to live by: Don’t sweat the petty things and don’t pet the sweaty things.

Quarantine Lesson #19: If your neighbors are ever worried about their landscapers because they haven’t shown up on time, just schedule any virtual class or meeting. Trust me they will show up in all of their mowing leaf blowing glory.
