Personal Background

Veronica is a South King County local where she grew up in the Kent/Covington area. Veronica is a graduate of Kentwood High School, and completed her general education studies at Green River Community College. Veronica most recently attended Highline Community College where she pursued its highly sought after Paralegal Program.

Serious Q & A

We sat down with Veronica to see if we could dig deeper and get to know her a little better.  Here's what we found out . . . .

Q:  On average, how many times a week do you hurt herself trying to dance in the shower?
A:  None – I'm proficient in shower dancing.

Q:  What's the most money you've ever drunkenly spent at McDonald's?
A:  $36.77.

Q:  On a scale of 1 to 10, how intolerable do you find baby pictures on Facebook?
A:  Pictures of baby humans:  Solid 10.  Pictures of baby animals: 1!

Q:  How many bowls of cereal do you eat every single day and why aren't you eating more?
A:  27.  I don't eat more because my last shred of dignity hinges on this exact scenario.

Q:  Who would you let punch you directly in the face?
A:  Anybody willing to pay me as much as Floyd Mayweather makes.

Q:  How many days have you gone without showering?
A:  6 while I was hospitalized after my son was born.

Q:  How old were you when you realized Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny probably never actually new one another in real life?
A:  I don't think there's any proof this is accurate.

Q:  Can you fit your whole fist in your mouth?
A:  No—can you?!

Q:  What's your favorite flavor of Skittle?
A:  Cherry.

Q:  How many sandwiches have you eaten off the floor?
A:  Maybe one or two errant sandwiches.

Q:  How many bottles of wine have you finished without ever actually pouring any of the wine into a glass?
A:  None—there are so many other options for a wine vessel than a simple glass.

Q:  Who was your favorite Power Ranger?
A:  Rita Repulsa.

Q:  What did you do the night Whitney Houston died?
A:  Held my breath and listened to “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” on repeat until sunrise.  I'm still waiting to exhale.

Q:  How many donuts are you capable of eating in one sitting?
A:  Full size donuts?  At least a baker's dozen.

Q:  Who was your favorite Spice Girl?
A:  Ginger!

Q:  How violently did you have to fight the urge to scream when you hear the ice cream truck coming?
A:  The ice cream truck didn't come to my neighborhood.

Q:  Say there's like a whole box of Teddy Grahams in a room all by themselves. Say I left them there and told you not to eat any until I got back. How long would it take you to disobey my wishes?
A:  I won't be tempted by Teddy Grahams.

A:  Approximately 94.3.

Q:  Do you agree that Harry Potter was a huge a-hole and probably the least exciting character in the entire series?
A:  Harry Potter was awful.  He thought he was above the rules, was responsible for Sirius Black's death, broke Ginny's heart for YEARS, and had no extraordinary magical talent.  Also, all his accomplishments were thanks to Hermione.

Q:  How many people do you fall in love with every day?
A:  I fall in love with myself over and over again.

Q:  How many friendships have you ruined because you refused to play a game of Monopoly mercifully?
A:  All of them.

Q:  What do you do when a baby just stares at you in public? Like, doesn't even blink, just maintains intense, aggressive eye contact with their baby face. What do you do?  WHAT DO YOU DO IN THIS SITUATION?
A:  Blow in their face.  Babies can't avoid blinking if you blow in their face. I WIN.

Q:  What is your favorite kind of cookie?
A:  Specialty's.

Q:  How long do you wait after finishing your first plate of food before getting a second plate of food?
A:  3.5 minutes.

Q:  When you're at a buffet, how many trays of food do you start off with?
A:  I'm a lady—I start with one.

Q:  What's the weirdest place you've ever unintentionally vomited?
A:  Universal Studios.

Q:  What's the weirdest place you've ever intentionally vomited?
A:  I've never intentionally vomited.

Q:  If I gave you $10 bucks to go buy me chocolate milk, and it only cost $3, would you bring me all the change or would you tell me it was actually $10? Because I'll know. I'll know chocolate mile doesn't cost that much.
A:  It will happen like this:  I'll walk into the store.  I'll stare at the refrigerated display of chocolate milk.  I'll compare pricing, because I'm a prudent individual.  I'm also a caring individual, so I will compare nutrition information to make sure I'm getting you the highest percentage of protein and calcium available.  I'll check the store brand—it's altogether lackluster.  I'll move on to Nesquick—too much sugar, not enough protein (you get cranky if you don't have enough protein).  I'll then scan the row and my eyes will land on Alpenrose which, as everybody knows, is the most superior brand of chocolate milk on the market, so go get you some.  I digress…my eyes will land on Alpenrose and linger for an uncomfortably long amount of time.  My phone will ding, you're texting me asking where I am with your chocolate milk.  I panic and grab the organic brand.  I return to you with chocolate milk and try to put the whole traumatic experience behind me.  All this to say, have you purchased organic chocolate milk lately?  It's approximately $10.00. There's no change.

Q:  How many seconds would it take you to eat this entire block of cheese?
A:  1,800.

Q:  Have you ever found the image of a biblical figure on a piece of toast?
A:  Yes.  In a small diner on the side of Route 72 in God's country.

Q:  How long does it take you to scroll through Facebook before giving up?
A:  5 minutes, at most.

Q:  Who do you just hate the most?
A:  I can't put that information in writing.

Q:  Do you think Zac Efron is really nice in real life or does he just walk around with his abs out telling people to go fetch him vegetables?
A:  You don't get abs like Efron by eating vegetables.  He's definitely a protein kind of dude.

Q:  What's your favorite thing to order from the Olive Garden?
A:  Breadsticks with extra alfredo sauce for dipping and a peach tea.

Q:  How many times does it take for you to listen to a song that you love before you actually hate it instead?
A:  9,651.

Q:  Do you ever stop and think about the number of soiled diapers in the world? Like. Whoa. Am I right?
A:  Totally whoa.  If only there was an option that was more environmentally friendly.

Q:  Have you ever started petting a really fluffy dog and just gotten very overwhelmed by how fluffy this dog is?
A:  No.  I try not to touch animals.

Q:  Finally, and this one is important, so please pay attention. What do you think cats dream about?
A:  Establishing their dominance over the human race.

And, there you have it everyone.  Now, we all know Veronica just a little bit better!  In all seriousness, we at Torres & Haroldson are lucky to have her and enjoy her being part of our team.
