In light of the recent posts that have seemed to focus on Caboose and his hilarity, which happens on a fairly frequent basis in our family, I thought it was only fair to try and introduce the personalities of the other three children. I decided to interview them individually and post them on separate days. I don't have set questions, although I will start with the same first one; from there I'm just going to roll with the punches. I started with Buddy, who is 12 years old, the only other boy in the family, and just over three years older than Caboose.
What would you like for people to know about you?
I love baseball. I love the St. Louis Cardinals. I'm a catcher.
Is there anything unrelated to baseball you would like for people to know about you?
I like math. I hate language.
Remember that we try not to use the word hate in our house, please. So why do you always tell me you despise school so much if you like math?
Because I'd rather do so much more stuff.
Play catch outside, or watch Sportscenter on TV.
You'd think this boy's life revolved around sports or baseball or something.
So who is your favorite baseball player and why?
Albert Pujols because he is a good guy and a good player.
So what do you think of your brother garnering so much recent attention on the blog?
What does that mean?
It's gettin' boring.
Do you think your brother is funny?
Do you think you are funnier than him?
What do you think about having two older sisters?
It's fun sometimes, sometimes not. They team up against you.
What would you like to be when you grow up?
I would like to be a baseball player, but I know I'm not, so I don't know.
When do you think you might decide?
I don't know.
Do you think you'll get married when you grow up?
What's so disgusting about it? You wouldn't be here without it.
It's just absolutely disgusting.
What do you think about being interviewed?
What do you like most about Michigan?
Every one is real friendly.
What do you like least about Michigan?
My best friend isn't here.
Do you have any closing thoughts you'd like to leave with the readers?
I don't like soccer. I like to read books. The Boston Red Sox are my second favorite baseball team. And that's all.
Well, as you can tell, this boy is all about his sports. If you didn't know it before, you certainly do now. My final non-sports related thought: he's my cutest brown-eyed child. Of course, he is my only brown-eyed child.
