Freshman, Business Undecided

Question 1) Your name is now a verb. What is its definition?

The verb is my last name -Flanders. Flandersing - taking a normal everyday interaction with no pressure and turning it into a awkward big complicated mess.
Used in a sentence: I was ordering in the drive-thru and I totally flandersed it up, I ordered a big mac at a Wendy's and instead of correcting myself I drove off with no warning.

Question 2) If you could have any TV character as your best friend who would it be and why?

Shawn Spencer from Psych. If you have never seen the show he is a fake psychic detective who can just notice stuff well but he plays it off as being a psychic detective. I would be his best friend because if I was I could solve crimes and have a grand old time. We could joke a lot and have fun but also stop criminals and do good.
