interview with sam

Me: What do you like to be called? Samuel or Sam?

Samuel: Sam.

Me: Do you like your name?

Sam: Yes.

Me: If you could have any name, what would it be?

Sam: Todd or Ted.

Me: Okay... What do you like most about yourself?

Sam: I'm good at video games.

Me: Is that what you're most proud of?

Sam: Maybe. Soon I'll get over that, though. That's what eight year olds like.

Me: So what do you think you'll like best about yourself when you grow up?

Sam: I haven't grown up yet so I don't know the answer to that.

Me: You're good at so many other things. What else do you feel like you do really well?

Sam: I'm good at snowboarding and surfboarding and all the other kinds of boardings.

Me: You are good at boardings. What's your favorite thing to do?

Sam: Go to Max's house to play Wii.

Me: What do you want to be when you grow up?

Sam: I should wait till fourth grade to make that decision.

Me: Okay, but if you had to decide right now, what would you choose?

Sam: If you're going to make me answer now, a TV cartoonist.

Me: Is that a cartoonist on TV or do you want to draw cartoons for TV?

Sam: Come on, this isn't Language Arts...

Me: Alright... What do you think is important in a friend?

Sam: He's honest.

Me: Is there a philosophy you live by?

Sam: What's a philosophy?

Me: It's like a plan that helps guide your life.

Sam: Can we skip ahead to the next question?

Me: What are some of your happiest memories?

Sam: Maybe that time when me, Tali, and Noah decorated our bellies with cookie frosting and candy hearts. And you guys laughed and took pictures and then we ate all that sugar.

Me: What are you scared of?

Sam: Bitty Baby dolls.

Me: Oooh, they are scary. Why are you scared of them?

Sam: Because my cousin Akiva is and we're buddies.

Wow! That's a great interview! I love his answers, especially the "can we skip to the next question?"

I might have to read this to Ben and see if I can interview him.

p.s. I always knew he was a Sam more than a Samuel
