Interview by a 7 Year Old

My youngest sister, Sarah, likes to ask people questions. Sometimes, these questions have very obvious right answers, for example, when she asks Angel, "Angel, do you want to play Just Dance with me?"

Or when she asks me, "Rachel, I noticed that you have some SweetTarts on the shelf in your bedroom. Who are those for?"

Other times, the questions are slightly more open-ended, but she'll still let me know if she disapproves of my answer. The other day, she performed an in-depth interrogation about the movies I watch while I was making dinner. Here it is:


Sarah: "Rachel, what is your favorite cartoon movie?"

Toy Story or Ice Age

"Okay, what is your favorite Disney movie?"

Pirates of the Caribbean.

"What? That doesn't count. What is your favorite Disney princess movie that is a cartoon?"

Beauty and the Beast

"What's your favorite scary movie?"

Rear Window (but for the record, I don't really watch scary movies.)

"What's your favorite funny movie?"

Classic: Arsenic and Old Lace
New: The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra

"What's your favorite romantic movie?"

Classic: Roman Holiday
New: The Proposal

"What's your favorite PG-13 rated movie?"

(Hmmm, Sarah, that's an odd question...though it seems like nearly all movies are rated PG-13 these days...)

The Return of the King? The Avengers?

"What is your least favorite movie of all time?"

The Core. The Spiderwick Chronicles. Batman.

Even with so many categories, I had such a hard time choosing. What would your answers be if you were being interrogated by Sarah?

....................................................................

And in a totally unrelated Sarah story, we were all in the car. Sarah's carseat takes up the middle seat, so Angel and I were sitting on both sides of her. She, unprovoked, leaned over and kissed Angel on the cheek. I said, "Hey! That's supposed to be my job!"

She looked at me with a cheeky/sinister grin and said, "Not anymore..."

  3. HAHAHAHA she is adorable. Lately my big one has been obsessed with questions like: Oooooo, Mama, where did you get those cookies? WOW those are some great cookies, aren't they? Oh how do those taste? I've never had them before. So funny.

  4. This is what scares me about having kids! The constant questions and having to come up with answers and choose your words wisely. Kids are so stinking smart. Your sister is beautiful!

  7. hahaha your favorite scary movie is Rear Window? I guess it was a little freaky. But hey, I feel you, I totally don't watch scary movies either!

    This was precious. I'm amazed she was able to think of all those questions to ask (and come back sometimes by saying it didnt count, haha!)

  8. She's too cute! Really, she reminds me of Nancy Drew in the books! (except I think she's meant to be blond. I don't know)
    I'm also not a big batman fan... I really had to stop the DVD and get my head straight because it unnerved me so. much.

  10. I love Toy Story & Pirates of the Caribbean but I have to disagree with you on Batman. The new Christian Bale series are some of my favorite superhero movies!

  11. I love The Proposal. I watch it a lot. That and Sweet Home Alabama. I set up my computer and watch one of those while I take baths (which happens like, once every three months, but still).

  12. Haha aw that is too cute! Gotta love little siblings

  13. Haha, I was totally your sister when I was younger. I asked everyone questions all the time. I fully expect to get a taste of my own medicine when I become a parent...

    On another note, how can you not like Batman???

  17. Haha "not anymore!" Rachel you better watch out! Too cute!

  18. Your sister sounds too funny (what a fun age!)! I agree with the Proposal - I'll watch any (funny/rom-com) movie with Sandra Bullock! While You Were Sleeping, Miss Congeniality, The Heat - there are so many good ones! (But I just can't get pumped for the seriousness of Gravity...)

  19. Your sister is so cute! That was funny! Least favorite movie of all times that I can think of is Spaceballs. My husband and (his) family thinks that it's that best movie ever! I disagree.

  20. Sometimes the things that come out of my 8 year old sisters mouth blows me away. Too funny!

    ReplyDelete
  21. HAHA that "not anymore" bit was adorable! And I LOVE The Proposal- nice answer. There were so many times I literally laughed out loud during that movie. I'm a huge romcom fan so it's hard to choose, but my all time favorite movie is Stranger Than Fiction :)

  24. She is just the cutest!! Interrogations by 7 year olds (or thereabouts) are the best. I agree that The Proposal is super cute! Although it's hard to watch it without noticing all the "wrong" things in that movie, haha (meaning, things that are in "Sitka" that would never actually be in Sitka, heheh!). I have a funny story about it that I may or may not have told you, regarding the character Ramon.

  30. What a little cutie! Is your whole family as funny as your and your sister are? ;) Those are such detailed and specific questions. I would have a really hard time answering! The Proposal is pretty fantastic! My favorite quote: Alaska-a-a?!

  35. Aaah the Spiderwick Chronicles...such a letdown. I loved the books as a child, but with the movie I was like "What even...?" Same with Series of Unfortunate Events, though it was funny, at least. One of the top on my list for least favorite movies would definitely be Battle for Terra (if you even recall that one, I think it bombed haha). It looked like an interesting space adventure, so I went to see it with one of my best friends when it hit the dollar theater. It was SUPER boring, so we ran upstairs to the other theater, which was playing Disney's Earth, or some other nature documentary. Bored there too. I think we eventually went back to Battle for Terra, but that officially went down in history as my worst movie-going experience :P
