In response to the Daily Prompt FAQ
I decided to “interview” my youngest.
Here is the result of my interrogation.
What age are you?
What age would you like to be, and why?
I guess I’d like to be one year old. Because then I could remember what it was like to be tiny.
Where do you live?
Where would you like to live. and why?
Dublin. Ireland. So I could be closer to my cousins.
What do you like about school?
I like my friends, and that’s about it!
You have dyslexia, Is there anything good about it?
Yes definitely. I get away with things, like not having spellings all right in a test,
or not understanding everything in a book. The teachers are kind and you know more teachers, because you go out of class for extra reading.
What is the hardest thing about having dyslexia?
Probably when people are saying “I love this, it’s so easy”,
but I don’t know what they are talking about because it’s too hard to read and I don’t understand.
But I do pretend I know it and I agree how easy it is!
Would you prefer not to have it?
No, because you are who you are. This is me.
What is the earliest thing you remember in your past?
I remember being in a cot with no pillow. You came in and asked would I like one.
Then you said “shush, we’ll rob your sisters for you”.
What is your favourite memory?
My uncle and I were having a “balancing” challenge on a tiny wall.
He was very very bad at it. He went into the house and took out the sweeping brush.
He got up on the wall and held the brush to “balance” himself. Then he fell over and broke the broom.
He then hid it so my grandmother didn’t know.
What age are you a grown up?
Thirty. Because in your twenties you are still doing lots of new things,
but at thirty you have most of those things done.
If you could what older age would you most like to be and why.
I’d like to be twelve. Because I want to watch all movies that are for aged 12.
What is the saddest day you remember?
The day I heard my friends little brother died.
What is the happiest thing that ever happened to you.
Getting my dog Cici. I love her.
What is your greatest achievement?
Making nearly €400 for leukemia in a car boot sale.
Who do you prefer mom or dad…Joke!
What do you think a blog is?
Something my mum goes on 24/7
Would you like to blog when you grow up?
I would because it seems to entertain my mum for the whole day.
If you were to write a blog today what would you write about?
My reunion with my nintendo after it was in the repair shop for three weeks.
What would you say about me to the people who read my blog?
I was only joking my mom doesn’t really spend the whole day on her blog,
she does lots of other things too.
Well thank you little miss. When you grow up and you’re rich and famous this will be worth a fortune.
