20/20, but better- Part 1

I read about this interview idea somewhere on the web (I was never good at that whole sourcing thing in high school, sorry Mom!). "Somewhere on the web" should do. Anyway, the idea is that you do it every year and see how much changes. Please note that the whole interview was done in a robot voice. I'm not quite sure why.


Alright Hayden. This is going to be sort of like 20/20 but better. I'll be Barbara Walters. You pretend you are one of the 10 most fascinating people in 2008 (which you are!) and be yourself. Everything okay? You need a glass of water before we get started? A package of powdered donuts? No?

Okay, let's get started then.

What is your name?

How old are you?
Thr..I mean Fou…I mean Five.

Where do you live?
Plano, Texas

Do you have any pets?
Yes. One is Angel.

Who do you like to play with?
Davis and Angel.

Anybody else?
Uh. Alexander and Jack.

What is your favorite Cereal?
My favorite cereal is honey combs.

What is your favorite vegetable.
My favorite type of vegetable is…..uh…..(serious thinking)….uh….. orange.

Orange is actually a fruit, can you name a vegetable that you like?
(more serious thinking)

Don’t you like carrots? They make your eyes blue-er.
Not that much.

Okay, so you don’t have a favorite vegetable?
I do. It is an orange.

What is your favorite drink?
My favorite drink is chocolate milk.

What is your favorite snack?
My favorite snack is chewy chewys. Spiderman ones. When I was three and four, a long time ago.

What is your favorite toy?
My favorite toy is a transformer…Optimus Prime.

What is your favorite book?

My favorite book is Jokers Wild.

Jokers Wild? What is that about? (still not quite sure where he read this book)
It is about when he goes to jail.

What is your favorite restaurant?
My favorite restaurant is Pizza Hut.

Oh really, How many times have you been to Pizza Hut? (clearly confused, because I can't remember ever going to Pizza Hut).

What is your favorite holiday?
My favorite holiday is Christmas.

What is your favorite animal?
My favorite animal is a dog.

If you could change your name to anything, what would you change it to?
Ummmm…. Anakin.

Anakin. Okay. Would you have a middle name Anakin?
Anakin Luke Skywalker.

What do you love about your Dad?
His muscles.

What do you love about your Mom?

Your sweatsuits.

(Note to self...find something better that your son can admire. Granted, I did get a lot of (really!) cool sweatsuits for Christmas that I may wear every last minute that I am not working, but I am hoping this answer will eventually change to "your sense of humor", or "your beautiful nails", or "the way you are not embarrassing at all when you pick me up from school" ...ANYthing!)

Where would you like to go on vacation this year?
The fair. The Plano Texas Fair.

(Not sure that exists, but it's nice to know that he doesn't expect Disney World every year. Or does that mean he wasn't that impressed?)

What is your number one wish for this year?
Ahhh….how much longer of this?

(Note to self: have a GIRL!)

Come on. This is the last question. What is your wish for this year?
A robot.

A what?
A robot window thing.

(Okaaaaay? At this point, my guess is that he is just making stuff up in hopes that it will shorten the interview. A trick his father also employs.)

Oh wait, one very, very last question. What is your favorite TV show?

Oh yes, of course it is.

Thank you for your interview Mr. Hayden Lyle. I appreciate your time.

I learned a lot from this interview. I did not know Pizza Hut was a favorite. If I was a betting person, I would say he probably just saw a commercial for it. I am glad I bought those Benji movies. It will be interesting to see if the interviews get better or worse with age.

Love you,

So, the interesting point to me is the question 'who else do you like to play with'...hayden answers with 2 boy names and davis answers with 2 girl names...any foreshadowing there? I think Davis is going to be A LADIES MAN!!

Such a great idea! Remind me to do this in a few years...or when Ella wouldn't answer every question with her favorite word (NO!).

Hayden cracks me up!
