Boredwalk Community: "Listen Not to Respond, but to Understand"

Welcome back to our weekly Boredwalk Community series, where we ask Boredwalk fans fun questions! This week we're talking to Nikki F., seen here looking particularly savage in her Savage AF tiger tee!

1. What's your actual day job and what's your dream day job?

My actual day job is a RN in an ICU. It's been a really stressful last 12 months being frontline with Covid.

If we were dreaming I would be living in a camper, home schooling my children, doing those work-to-camp arrangements all over the country.

(Ed. note: I bet! Thank you for your service. I hope you and all of your nursing colleagues get some rest soon.)

2. What's your biggest pet peeve?

Ugh! When people lie! Liars are the absolute f*%^*!< worst!!!

3. What's the most useful piece of advice you've ever received?

"Listen not to respond, but to understand." (That's a really good one for all of us to remember.)

4. If you could have any super power what would it be and why?

Invisibility. I think it would be amazing to 1. sneak up on people and pretend to be a ghost, and 2. so I can hear who talks that shit!

5. You can curse your nemesis with a minor annoyance for eternity; what do you choose?

Excessive salivation to the point of drooling uncontrollably. (Aggressively annoying but fairly innocuous. I like it!)

6. What experience do you most want to cross off your bucket list?

...I don't really have a bucket list. But I want to scuba dive one day. I want to visit Australia. I want to backpack through Europe...a lot of travel. 🌎

7. What is a surprising fact about you?

I can independently wiggle my pinkie toes.. go ahead try it — bet ya $5 you can't.

8. Where can the rest of the Boredwalk community find you?
