Amber at Crappy Pictures recently interviewed her kids and suggested that we all do the same. Sure! I’m game. This is exactly what Adam (now all of 4 1/2 years old, and do NOT leave off the 1/2. He’s very touchy about that) said in response to her suggested questions with my own mental commentary in italics. Here we go:
What is the meaning of life?
It means moving and touching and holding and feeling and running and jumping and playing games and exploring nature. That’s what life means. Also dancing.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
There’s a lot of option to choose. Hmmm…. A man that goes to work. I want to work where daddy works.
What brings you the most happiness?
(exceedingly long pause…lots of rolling around on the sofa) Being a grown up, eating chocolate when I’m grown up, eating whatever I want when I’m grown up.
When do you feel the most loved?
When I’m in the car or outside with you, at a restaurant, when I’m watching tv. AND when I’m upside down!
What are you afraid of?
I’m afraid of the dark. I’m afraid of lions and tigers. I’m scared of really scary things. You know what I’m scared of? I’m scared of Batman, Robin …proceeds to name every superhero he can think of.
If you had one wish, what would you wish for?
I would wish for pizza with NO SAUCE.
What is the funniest word?
How to do CHA CHA CHA. You know what else is the funniest word? The funniest word is (garbled nonsense, ending with CHA). That’s a funny word!
What is the hardest/easiest thing to do?
The hardest thing is to do a flip. The easiest to do is eat.
What is the best/worst thing in the world?
The best thing in the world is God. The worst thing in the world is the devil. The devil’s mean.
Let’s hear it for Vacation Bible School!
What makes you mad?
Time out. And not having a treat. And not doing dishes. And not playing. And not dancing. And not, you know what else I’m mad of? I’m mad of watching tv.
What is the meaning of love?
The meaning of love means you like to do something with them. You like to play with them, like to give them hugs, like to sit on their lap, and like to dance with them and lay in bed with them and sleep on them.
Let’s just stop there, shall we?
If you had all the money in the world, what would you do with it?
I would pay up for Disney World! Then I would have a bunch a pile of money, I would put one quarter in my machine and it would turn that one quarter into a bunch of money. Then I would walk out the other side and BAM! I would fall over.
BAM! I would fall over if you invented a money machine also. It’s called counterfeiting.
