Inquiring Two-And-A-Half Year Olds Want To Know

Adorable little Donovan indulged my request for him to interview me.

1. I have lived in California and North Carolina. Did you ever live in North Carolina? (Where have you lived?)

I have lived in quite a few different places, but never North Carolina. My sister did live there several years ago and I visited her once. However, the first place I ever lived was just north of where you are...Virginia. I lived in a few different places in Virginia from the time I was born until I was 12 years old. I then moved to Texas, near Houston, for a few years. My last two years of high school were spent in Pennsylvania, about an hour outside of Philadelphia. From there, I went on to college in Ithaca, New York, which is where I met your Daddy. My last year of school was 12 months long and for much of that time, I lived in Rochester. After college, I moved to Florida, where my family was then living, but only for a couple of years. After Florida, I moved here to California, where I've lived for over 12 years now...longer than I ever lived anywhere else. I hope you like living in North Carolina as much as I like living in California.

2. Do you have anyone at your house that I can play with?

Well, I assume by that question you mean do I have any kids and the answer to that question is no. However, E and I are both pretty good with kids and I think we'd have lots of fun playing together. We have a whole bunch of toys and puppets too. I have some furry friends, but I think you'd be afraid of them. There is a little boy next door, who is about your age, so you'd maybe be able to play with him too.

3. I went roller skating today for the first time and it was fun. I also like playing in the dirt. Do you like roller skating? (If not, what is your favorite way to have fun?)

I have not been roller skating or played in the dirt for a very long time, but when I was a kid, I loved doing both of those things! I had my very own roller skates that were white with blue and red stripes. I had a giant red and white pom-pom on each skate. I thought I was bad ass, but I've also been clumsy and was never very good at it. These days, there are a lot of things I like to do for fun, but one of my very favorites is taking pictures of things. And lately, my favorite thing to photograph are squirrels.

4. I am 2 1/2 years old, so my Mom and Dad never give me their beer, even tho I say please. If I came to your house, what kind of drink would I get from you?

You shouldn't be too sad about the beer. It's pretty nasty stuff. Anyway, I'm not sure what I'd give you to drink as I'm sure you have restrictions. The one thing I always have on hand is ice cold filtered water. Other than that, there might be some apple and/or orange juice and possibly some unsweetened tea. I like my Diet Coke, which I'm sure would be off-limits for you, but I rarely keep it in stock. There is also always some sort of rum in the cabinet, but we'll have to wait until you are older to share that.

5. I am afraid of grampires and dogs. What are you afraid of?

I'm definitely not afraid of dogs, but there are lots of scary things out there. Your Auntie Karen has witnessed first-hand my fear of roller coasters (going fast and dropping). I'm scared of black widow spiders, but have gotten pretty good at killing them. Rattlesnakes spook me a bit too. There are lots of vague, grown-up type things that scare me, but I won't go into those right now. The strangest thing I'm afraid of is milk.

Thanks, Donovan! Those were fun questions!
