I have a porcelain tooth! I also have teeth made of calcium, phosphorus and other mineral salts. Did you know that teeth are not made of bone, but rather of multiple tissues of varying density and hardness? There are actually four layers of bone. Enamel is the hardest and most highly mineralized substance of the entire body and is one of the four major tissues which make up the tooth, along with dentin, cementum, and dental pulp. Of the four dental pulp is my favorite.

One time I thought I saw the Easter Bunny in my bedroom, but it was just a teletubby. The weird thing was that it was laying an egg. Eggs are delicious. Also, my nickname is "Mad Dogg Madeline" but I am never mad. I don't understand nicknames.

I am a jump rope champion. I made nationals three years in a row. I can jump super fast. I have also seen Jack's turtle shell. It's huge. I can't believe how much he loves turtles. I hope I love an animal that much one day.

My favorite number is 1 because it looks like a toothpick. One time I had an entire green bean stuck in my tooth and I used a toothpick to get it out. That's why my favorite number is 1.

I like to run. Sometimes I run outside. Sometimes I run inside. I hate running inside because I always run into things. One time I ran into a dinner table. Everyone had food all over them. YOLO.

I love turtles so much. I own the largest turtle farm in Montana and I have created a turtle shell large enough for me to fit in. I also learned that turtles lack the strength in their sphincter to flatulate under water. I can identify with them because my sphincter is really weak also.

I can speak over 6 languages: Canadian, Irish, English (British), Australian, American, and Scottish. I got so tired of taking language classes that I took a nap that lasted over 6 months. I was sooooo hungry when I woke up that I ate an entire Jimmy Deans sausage pack. That's over 16 links of sausage people!

My heroes are Spaceman Spiff and the Cookie Monster. One taught me that it doesn't matter how old you are --- it's how you are old that counts. The other taught me about things that start with the letter C.

I love monuments. I spent one of my summers standing still as much as I could because I wanted to be a monument. I think most people didn't know I was a real human. It is amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it.

I have alligator feet that can make me swim really fast. Also, to help me dive deeper, I swallow little rocks. Sometimes I even keep rocks in my cheeks! That way I can collect puka shells for this sweeeeeeet necklace I am making.

Fun Facts

Insects don't really bother me. In fact, when I was younger, I opened the first racetrack for ants. I used to collect colonies of ants and have them try to race around the track. But then I saw the movie "Gladiator" and I decided I've never race ants again. Sometimes movies can have a huge impact on people.
