About Alena...

Tonight I would like to introduce you to my 7 year old daughter, Alena. We recently sat down for an interview. (Just so happened to be in the car while I was driving, but eh!) Here is an excerpt from that great interview:

Mom: Thanks for meeting me for this
interview, Alena. I'm glad you could finally pencil me into your calender.

Alena: Oh, you're welcome. Just make it fast please. I've got
people to see, and things to do...

Mom: Yes, yes,
surely. So, tell me. Who are your three most favorite people in the world.

Alena: (long pause....) My mom. My dad. (another long pause...)
and myself.

Mom: Oh, very good. It is a very good
thing for people to like themselves. Now tell me, what is your most favorite
thing to do?

Alena: I have lots of favorite things.

Mom: Ok, well if you had to pick ONE thing....what would
it be?

Alena: (shrugging shoulders in a bothered manner) I like
hanging out with my friends.

Mom: Great! Friends are
lucky to have you to hang with! Now, if you could go anywhere in the world,
where would it be and why?

Alena: (without hesitation) Paris!!

Mom: Paris? Why??

Alena: It has lots
of cool things to do there, like shopping.

Mom: I
wasn't even aware you knew about Paris. Interesting. So, what would you like for

Alena: (A very, very long pause.) I don't know. I
guess a Nintendo DS.

Mom: What is you favorite color and number.

Alena: Oh, I think Pink, and 16.

What do you like most about school?

Alena: Math is my favorite
subject, but I like having lunch the most.

Mom: What
do you plan to do when you grow up?

Alena: I am going to be two
things. First, a singer. And second, a veterinarian.

Mom: A
singing vet...that would be cool! What do you like most about being in a family
with so many kids?

Alena: I don't know.

Mom: What is the worst thing about that?

Alena: All
the yelling, and never any quiet.

Mom: Well, thank
you Alena for meeting with me tonight. As an ending question, tell me what you
would like people to know about you.

Alena: Um....that I am nice.

Well, there you go. That is my Alena.
