Not only is she one of the most talented and capable people I know--from DIY, to cooking, baking, gardening, knitting--yes, she knit the circle vest--, being Captain of a Naval supply battalion in Saudi Arabia during Desert Storm--but she truly is one of the smartest. Literature, vocabulary, math, music; she is my personal resource. She also has a wickedly wry sense of humor. When I told her I was using her as my response to this prompt, her immediate response was "I think you need to widen your circle of friends". That's Jody; one of my dearest friends.
