interview #2 with samuel

Me: You're on Spring Break. What are your goals for this vacation?

Sam: To find those lost Wii games and waste time until I go to Max's house.

Me: Weren't you going to learn how to type so that you can type your own papers?

Sam: I'll learn how to type later.

Me: Before your next paper?

Sam: Maybe not...

Me: What is your favorite thing to do outside?

Sam: Swordfights

Me: What do you think is the perfect age?

Sam: Eighteen or twenty.

Me: Why those ages?

Sam: Because I get to make my own choices then.

Me: Will they be so different than the choice your parents make for you? What will decide to do?
Sam: Heck, yeah! I'll get a cell phone and get to text people and I'll get to take longer showers and I'll get to drink coffee...

Me: Hmmm, anything else?

Sam: I'd have parties.

Me: What kind of parties?

Sam: Just parties.

Me: What would you do at the parties?

Sam: I'd order ten pizzas and have some fast food and that's pretty much all.

Me: Would you invite friends?

Sam: Yeah, you can't have a party without your friends.

Me: What are you going to do right now?

Sam: Going back to watch tv. Though, hey, can I have my own email account?

Me: Seriously? Who would you email?

Sam: I don't know... My friends. And Ben. And Jacob has one.

Me: Maybe you should learn how to type first. I don't think you have time for TV--you need to learn how to type.

Sam: Maybe you're right... Can I use your computer?

Ben and Samuel totally need to email... it would get them off the phone!
