interview with the birthday boy

The following is an interview conducted with subject, Tommy Daniels, on the occasion of his fifth birthday. His answers are reproduced verbatim.

Q. How do you like being five?

A. Um, so I can go to the playground?

I think he misunderstood the question.

Q. What's the best part about being five?

A. Oh! The best part? Opening presents is the best part!


Q. Now that you are five what are some things that are really good at?

A. I like, what I can do is, I can break a stoplight. Also. I am good at fighting ninjas. And building robots, I'm good at that.

Not sure about the stoplight thing, but I totally vouch for his ninja fighting abilities.

Q. What do you want to be when you grow up?

A. A policeman, because I'd really like to be a policeman.

This is because he thinks they get to carry magnifying glasses.

Q. What's you favorite part of school?

A. My favorite part is when I showed 'em all my stuff.

The 'Me' bag he got to bring because it was his birthday.

Q. What's your favorite thing to do?

A. Wrestle with my friends and um, get rescue heroes.

More presents.

Q. What would you like to do before your next birthday.

A. Um, make trains and oh, I just don't know. I aren't telling you, that's all. I don't want to do this anymore, just write all the stuff Johnny likes to do.

Hmm, he seems to be losing patience.

Q. O.K. just one more question, did you have a good day?

A. Yup, it was the bestest day ever.

Oh good, because you make my heart sing.

Happy birthday to that sweet boy! Does he share a birthday with my oldest or was that just the post date? Loved the interview idea--I think I'll need to steal it in the future.

Angie said...

He does! that was his actual birthday. How fun!

Carrie said...

This was a great idea! I might do something similar next year or maybe have my kids post their new year's resolutions.

Honesty is so funny at times.
