Eldest Twerp: Uncut and Unfiltered

Below you will find Eldest Twerp -- Uncut and Unfiltered. You all had questions, so I interviewed her -- Lordy Be. I also need you to know that I accidentally deleted 6 comments. If yours are those., I am soooo sorry. I love you, I accept you, I just am a computer nerd. Please forgive me.

Now...Here's ET:

Hello ET -- How are you today?
Well, I would have to say I am okay - but there are somethings in life you get mad about and wish you did not do. But overall, life is awesome.

What did you wish you did not do?
I think you know and I would rather not talk about it please.

So, are you excited about ...
I am excited about Church camp and the other camp this summer. I am also excited about going to my Nana's house for a whole week this summer. She is going to show me this place I read about in her book.

What I was going to ask is ... Are you excited about going to Middle School?

What are you excited about the most?
Having a locker instead of a desk cause a locker you can just close and walk away. But a messy desk you have to look at all day long.

Are you excited about learning anything in particular in Middle School?
Well, I would like to learn the nicknames of the states. I have also been doing 2 hours of Rosetta Stone every day this summer. And my dad says learning it this was is more efficient. I guess we will be testing his theory and integrity out, huh?

Do you want to play any sports? and softball.

What about cheerleading?
Straight off the bat no.

It is just not my type of sport. You know how somethings you are just born to love? Well, cheerleading is not it for me.

You know I was a cheerleader?
Yes, I know.

What do you think about that?
I would think you would be able to do flips and stuff and stand on your head for like 2 to 5 minutes. I bet you were very good.

But you don't want to follow in my footsteps and be a cheerleader?
Well, no. I am just not flexible. And not to hurt your feelings, it is not just something I like alright? Now can we move on from cheerleading questions?

Ok. What is the one thing you want everyone to know about ET?
Straight off the bat I want them to know I am adopted.

Well, it is a very special thing in your life and those of you that are adopted you know how special that is and I want everyone to understand how special I am in that way.

I agree. I think you're pretty special.

What is one thing you wish you could change in your life?
That is a hard question. {long pause} Sometimes I wish I could change how MT acts.

Like how?
Well, he repeats everything I say. He wants everything I want. I wish he would just go his own way and not always mine -- unless I am obeying, they he should follow me.

So what do you think about when you lay your head on your pillow at night?
I think about the day -- the things I did, the things I have been through, what I am going to do the next day -- just plan ahead and reflect mainly.

If you could blink right now and know where you were going to be 10 years from now, would you do it or would you keep it a surprise?
I would keep it as a surprise. If I knew what was going to happen life would not be amazing. If I love someone and lose them, I know God has put them in my path for that moment. I do not want to know that I might lose them, I just want to enjoy them.

If you could do anything when you are older, what would it be?
This is hard. Let's see. I am so young and I have lots to learn, but I would probably be looking for a husband. And IF IF IF I find one, I would have babies and hope for twins. Maybe triplets. And get up to 5 kids and teach them the right way to live- like my dad. But be kind - like my mom.

What would be the prefect day for you?
Having NO CHORES. And everything going my way -- being able to read all day and have a whole day with my Nana and Grandpa.

What is one thing you wish I would change as your mother?
Nothing. I just don't think you need to change anything. You are being the best mom you know how to be and you are trying your darndest to teach me things.

Is there anything else you want to tell me about yourself or anything you want to get off your chest?
I am reading a book Harriett the Spy. It is really good. I looooove reading. And my favorite hobbies are reading and playing sports and have I mentioned I reeeealllly love to read?

Who do you want to be like when you grow up?
I wanna be like...Carl Hiaasen.

WHO???!!!???!!! What about me?
What about you?

Do you wanna be like me?
Uhm, maybe some parts. But not all. But I still love you. More than ice cream.

Oh Gosh! I just love ET's matter of fact attitude! And I have a younger sister who used to mimic me all the time, if I said I want a lime green and pink polk dot car, she'd go buy one first! I can totally relate to what she says about MT.

And cheerleading.

Books, not so much. but sort of.

Great interview!

Caroline said...

Hahaha...that is too cute. She is both an optimist and a realist - unique and wonderful combination. :)
I remember reading Harriet the Spy. That's when I started signing everything C.B. Rott and carrying around a space pen and a pocket sized note pad and spying on the neighbors.

I love it! ET you are one smart chick. I think being adopted is special too. I was adopted when I was a tiny baby and I have adopted 2 little girls now. Fun!

That is absolutely hilarious!!! She is a very well rounded young lady!!!

It is amazing some of the things kids say!! My daughter had an allergic reaction to something last week and is still recovering from the rash. So today she says "I am so sick of this rash"! I said "DD it'll get better in just a few more days" and she's says back "yeah well whatever...This is going to cause me wrinkles and I don't want wrinkles...I'm to young" LOL!!!

She is very bright, isn't she?

Amber said...

ET, My 10 year old daughter feels the same way about her little sister as you feel about MT..she is tired of her always copying her and wanting everything she wants. Don't aren't alone..but the good news doesn't last forever...well sometimes. :-)

Farmgirl Paints said...

What a great interview. Your daughter sounds like she has a great head on her shoulders. I bet you are really proud of her.

I love the whole idea of this post and when my girls are older I'm going to copycat you;)

By the way I'd never even heard of the person she wanted to be?? I'm feeling a little dumb right now!
