I Need Friends Friday: Hubert, age 9

It's that time of the week:

(Every Friday I interview a different person and share that interview with you. Perhaps they will be a fellow-author. Perhaps one of my neighbors. Maybe the bagger at the grocery store. A member of my family. A follower of this blog. Maybe it will be you! Hey, it could happen.)

Today's friend is my 9-year-old son. As per the official policy regarding guests who are minors here at, my little guy has been given a codename: Hubert. Enjoy!
SME: Welcome, to INFF Hubert.

Hubert: Okay.

SME: What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?

Hubert: Mint chocolate chip.

SME: Why is that your favorite flavor?

Hubert: Because whenever I have mint, my mouth sort of goes crazy, and I like that.

SME: Do you have a favorite ice cream topping?

Hubert: M&Ms

SME: Do M&Ms make your mouth go crazy?

Hubert: *gives me a look of complete disbelief* No.

SME: Did you have any New Years resolutions last year?

: Play more wii.

SME: Nice. Are you going to make any New Years resolutions this year?

Hubert: Probably not. I like how I'm doing right now.

SME: What New Years resolution should I make this year? *suddenly regretting that question*

Hubert: Maybe eat more pizza. You've only eaten a little bit lately.

SME: What's your favorite continent?

Hubert: That's a weird question.

SME: Pretty typical around here.

Hubert: Um... North America.

SME: Is there a reason it's your favorite continent?

Hubert: It's the freest! *arms in the air*

E: What do you want to be when you're grown up?

Hubert: I've got a few things I'm thinking of. An engineer, a mathematician or a scientist.

SME: What kind of scientist, do you think?

Hubert: An astronomer.

SME: Why's that?

Hubert: I like to look up at the stars and stuff.

SME: Very cool.
I drew a portrait of you.

Hubert: Cool.

*another masterpiece takes shape*

SME: There ya go.

Hubert: That's a really good drawing, Mom.

SME: Thanks.

Hubert: You're welcome.

SME: Top 5 reasons this is the best blog interview you've ever done.

Hubert: First of all, it's the only one.
Second of all, um... *obviously thinking hard* it's indoors.
Third of all, *thinking even harder* it's short.
Fourth of all, my sister isn't in it.
Fifth of all... The fifth is the hardest one. Let's see. Is the fifth always the hardest for everyone.

SME: A lot of people have a hard time coming up with five.

Hubert: I can't think of a fifth one.

SME: Fair enough.
*cue exit music* Well, this has been "I Need Friends" Friday. Come back next week when I will make another friend!!

If you'd like to be interviewed for "I Need Friends" Friday, shoot me off an email: friends at sarahmeden dot com!
I am looking for anyone and everyone, whether or not you think you are interesting. You'll get a fantastic stick figure portrait of yourself, a little promotion (if you're looking for that sort of thing) and the opportunity to tell your friends and family that you've been interviewed by SME, er... by ME!
