Today, I thought it would be fun to interview Squeaker and see how he answered some basic questions. Aside from taking out his name and his brother’s name, I did not alter his answers in any way. He gave me really short answers, but these are his words and his perspective.

Of course, what he’s going to be when he grows up changes almost daily. One day, it’s a teacher, the next, it’s a zombie. Yes, he’s said “zombie” before. Today, he wants to be a doctor. It’ll be interesting to see what he decides when he gets older and his ideas become more permanent (and when he knows what it really means to make that decision).
It is good to know that I’m both his favorite person and his best friend, though.
