An intimate interview with MM, aged twelve, who was in the middle of playing Skyrim.
One word to describe you would be cautious.
What do you like to do for fun? Play video games like Minecraft, Skyrim or Halo.
Tell me about your favorite book? What are you reading right now? One of my favorite books is Gregor & The Prophecy of Bane. They go on a huge adventure at sea and there’s squids, whirlpools, flesh eating bugs and a huge white rat. At least that’s what everyone thinks…
What is your happiest memory? I can’t think of a memory but I once had a dream that I woke up and looked out the window and there were dinosaurs everywhere.
What do you think makes a person good-looking? Like, not have warts? I don’t know.
If you had three wishes, what would they be? First, a mansion. A really cool car like a convertible. And my own Gaming System with an X-box One and lots of cool games.
What do you think you’d like to be when you grow up? A YouTuber – I really want to make YouTube videos. I don’t know what I want my real job to be. (At least he doesn’t consider making YouTube videos a real job?)
Do you have a favorite tv show or movie? Doctor Who, especially the new series. My favorite Doctor is probably Peter Capaldi. I like his sonic sunglasses and I also really like Bill.
What would be your dream vacation? We’d go on a big road trip to Massachusetts, Florida, Hershey Park. Then we’d get on a boat or an airplane and go to London and France. I want to see the Eiffel Tower and the Statue of Liberty.
Describe your dream meal. I would want delicious bacon cheeseburgers like they have at Wendy’s with a Frosty and chicken nuggets. And a really good soft taco with lettuce, tomatoes and lots of cheese. Of course there would probably be leftovers.
What kind of music do you like to listen to? I really like Casting Crowns. They have a song called Dream For You that’s about King David and Mary.
What is your favorite thing to do with your friends? Play video games. Lovers in a Dangerous Space Time is a lot of fun.
