Interview With An Eight-Year-Old

I've been doing this now for many years. Never has there been an interview that was so similar to the one done the previously year. Quite a few of his answers stayed the same. I don't read him what he said the previous year so I guess he's starting to become the person he plans to be.

1. What is your favorite T.V. Show? Tank Battles
2. What did you have for breakfast? Eggs
3. What is your middle name? John.
4. Favorite Food? Macaroni and cheese
5. What food do you dislike? Pepperoncinis (This is the first year that mashed potatoes has been dropped as his least favorite food.)
6. What is your favorite color? Brown, black and green
7. Favorite lunch? Turkey sandwich
8. What is your favorite thing to do? Go surfing
9. If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would it be? Turkey (Um...does anyone else find this one to be super random?)
10. Favorite sport? Surfing
11. When is your birthday? July 20
12. Are you a morning person or a night person? Both
13. Pets? A dog, a cat, a fish
14. Any new and exciting news you'd like to share with us? I’m having a birthday party at the beach.
15. What do you want to be when you grow up? A helicopter pilot.
16. What is your favorite candy? Cotton. (HA! This answer cracked me up!)
17. Where is the farthest place you've ever been from home? Israel
18. What is your favorite book? Laura Ingalls Wilder. I asked him which one. He replied, "The one you just finished." (That happened to be On the Banks of Plum Creek.) I'm noticing that he usually answers with whatever book we've just finished or are currently reading.
19. What are you most proud of? How fast I ran my mile.
20. What is your favorite movie? Cheaper By the Dozen. (I don't think this is actually true but he just recently watched it again so it must have come to mind first.)
21. Which came first, the chicken or the egg? The chicken. Because God had to put a chicken on the earth to lay eggs.

And, for fun, I asked him the same questions that James Lipton asks at the end of Inside the Actor's Studio.

1. What is your favorite word? Garrett
2. What is your least favorite word? Oh my God.
3. What turns you on? (I rephrased with, "What do you like?") Pizza
4. What turns you off? (I rephrased with, "What don't you like?") Blood
5. What sound or noise do you love? The sound of elephants going, "Bawereeee!” (This answer is identical to what he said last year, complete with how he made an elephant noise.)
6. What sound or noise do you hate? When Styrofoam is rubbing against something.(The sound is the same as what he said last year, he just worded it a little differently.)
7. What is your favorite curse word? Stupid
8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Making pizza. (Last year it was selling pizza.)
9. What profession would you not like to do? Taking the flesh off an animal (tanning hides. He saw this on TV. On that show about the world's dirtiest jobs.)
10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates? (I omitted the "If Heaven exists" part)? Welcome home. Welcome to heaven, Garrett

  1. I too hate the sound of Styrofoam scratching on something. It's not my least favorite sound but it is awful. Also, I just saw that episode of Dirty Jobs, and it was disgusting! I would not like to tan hides either!
