My name is Drew Myers. If you see a picture of me, my mouth will probably be open (there’s a GREAT chance I’ll be pointing and/or giving a thumbs up, too). I catch a lot of grief for this, but it’s nothing more than a defense mechanism.
Explanation: My mom used to tell me that I looked like a turtle when I smiled for my class photos, and I’ve over-compensated ever since.
Let’s blame her.
I’m married to a wonderfully great woman, TK. (The main reason she’s wonderfully great: She puts up with my crap!) She is a flight attendant so when she’s slingin’ peanuts at 40,000 feet, I’m flying solo as a stay-at-home dad.
The greatest thing he’s saying these days: “That’s nasty.”
We have the smartest dumb dog in the world, Cpt. Augustus McCrae. When he was a puppy, he ate a disposable razor.
Here are 13 additional bullet points that help define the real me:
• I’m a brother. (I have two sisters and a brother);
• I’m a volunteer;
• I have my master’s degree in Educational Administration, which means I could be a principal if I really embraced being a glutton for punishment;
• I’m a runner. I’ve run 2.75 marathons, and I’m currently in the midst of a personal running streak. (When this bio was written, I had run at least one mile for 416 consecutive days);
• Favorite all-time television show: The Wire;
• I have two man crushes: Randy Rogers (Texas Country Music artist) and Pudge Rodriguez (former catcher for the Texas Rangers). Neither love affair has to do with looks AND everything to do with them being bad asses in their respected industries;
• I don’t always drink beer, but when I do…I drink Shiner Bock. (When I’m not drinking Shiner, I probably have a glass of Jameson on the rocks in my hand);
• Greatest sports moment: Game 6 of the 2010 American League Championship Series. The Rangers defeated the Yankees to punch their first ticket to the World Series. (I hugged a lot of random men that night);
• Worst sports moment: Game 6 of the 2011 World Series… (I can’t even talk about it);
• I think “balance” in life is unattainable (example right). Instead of chasing the imaginary, I simply try to focus on my top two life facets – spiritual and family – to help me make decisions and allocate my time for the other things (career, significance, financial, etc.)
• I try to live a bold and adventurous life – with love and gratitude in my heart – as a constant thank you to Jesus Christ. When I die, I know I’m going to heaven because of His sacrifice on the cross.
