Episode 13: 5 Questions with Andrew Lengerich, Senior Physical Therapist

Andrew: Welcome. My name is Andrew Dombek. This is Andrew Lengerich, the senior physical therapist with AID Performance Physical Therapy. Today we’re doing another episode of Five Questions. Drew has been with us…

Drew: Three years in June.

Andrew: Three years in June. Wow! And, what’s your favorite thing about being here at AID? And this is not one of the questions.

Drew: I got a sixth one. Lucky you guys. I would say it’s the crew that we’ve got around and the fun atmosphere. Coming to work every day doesn’t seem like…it’s less of a job and more of a joy to come because of the people we have here.

Andrew: Sounds fair. Are you ready?

Drew: Born that way.

Andrew: These questions have been chosen randomly by Jen, our office manager. Not very randomly chosen. First question: What would you buy if you had to spend \$800 in eight hours?

Drew: Let’s see here. Probably a lot of workout clothes because I don’t get clothes very often. So I tend to run my running shoes and clothes into the ground until they have holes in them. So I’d probably go on a little shopping spree for that stuff.

Andrew: Not hair product?

Drew: No, no. Maybe when the man bun comes in, but we’re not quite there yet. You know, it’s still coming in.

Andrew: Next questions. Next question. Which three words would you use to describe yourself?

Drew: Only three words? I would say I’m laid back, fun-loving, and hard-working.

Andrew: That’s six. We have an audience here.

Drew: They’re hyphenated. Counts as one.

Andrew: What one question would you like to ask of an ancestor, and who would you ask?

Drew: I would probably ask my grandfather more questions about the war. He was in World War II. So, I would ask him more questions. I can’t think of any specific, but just getting more information about his time in the war.

Andrew: Where was he stationed?

Drew: He was in Germany. Front lines. Yeah, he was in Europe a lot, all over. So I’ve heard some of his stories, but not all of them.

Andrew: Is he still alive?

Drew: No. He passed away eight years ago.

Andrew: I’m sorry to hear that. What branch of the military was he in?

Drew: He was in the army.

Andrew: All righty next question. Do you have any superstitions?

Drew: I can’t say that I do. The only one I go by, I don’t know if it’s a specific superstition, but if I’m wearing something and the team I’m watching is doing well, I’ll keep it on. But if they start to go downhill I will change into a different shirt or a different hat or something like that, trying to change my luck, and I’ve done the rally cap turn it inside out at the end of games.

Andrew: Yeah, I think I do some of the same things: turn the tv off, go into another room.

Drew: My team’s undefeated since I cut, I trimmed, my hair. So you know, the haircut was good luck this time. Six-game losing streak, we won two in a row since I cut the hair.

Andrew: This is the Bengals. All the teams are undefeated right now.

Drew: Xavier basketball.

Andrew: Last question. What do you believe will be the next big invention?

Drew: Hover cars! And I’m going to be driving the first one, so I don’t have to sit in traffic all the time. Just hover over everybody to and from work.

Andrew: Is that an invention? Isn’t it already there? That would be a flying car. Fly, hover. I mean it’s all semantics. At what point do you stop hovering and start flying? I don’t know. That’s a good question. I’ll look into that, and we’ll get back to you on that one. Well, thank you guys again for listening in to five questions. Come visit us at AID Performance Physical Therapy. Come get to see Drew in action, meet him, check on the progress of his not man bun. It’s coming in.

Drew: It’s coming in.

Andrew: All right, well thank you, guys. Have a good evening.
