One of the girls has taken to providing her answers with a sneer.
Not naming names or anything. But her name rhymes with Queen Bee. In fact, I wondered if asking her these questions for this monthly post might have had its run. Perhaps I should let her off the hook.
But, she keeps answering.
And a terse answer is still an answer, right? It’s like that Rush song, Freewill. “If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.” Deep, huh?
What is the first question you would ask a dolphin?
Elise: Do you really like when people swim with you?
Marie: Dolphins don’t talk.
Grace: Do you like when people ride on your back?
If you could build your dream tree house, what would it look like? Would it have any special features?
Elise: It would be huge, and full of all the supplies I need. It’d have a TV that shows all the reruns of Fresh Prince of Bel Air, in order.
Marie: It would be really big, and have lots of windows. There would be different restaurants inside, and a slide to get down.
Grace: My tree house would have a refrigerator 9 miles long, and I would have a fast wheel chair and a Luke Kuechly security system.
What would you do if you saw someone stealing food from a grocery store?
Elise: Find the biggest dude working there, and tell him, then watch him tackle the person.
Grace: I would karate kick them and take the groceries, then get cash.
If you could make your own cartoon show, what would the villain be like? What would his name be?
Elise: He would be really cool and really funny, and you really don’t want him to be that bad guy, but he’s just really stupid. And uhhh … I don’t know his name.
Marie: I don’t want to answer that!
Grace: The villain would steal pickles and she (me) would be named Cam Wham Pickle Ma’am.
If you could eat only one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Grace: I would have a salad because you have so many choices for one.
How many books do you think you can balance on your head? Okay, prove it.
Grace: That’s 9!
