(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 guest is my very own brother, Sam Miller. Sam is a great guy, a college student, and a very cooperative brother. I emailed him begging him to do an interview for INFF and he agreed. You're the best, Sam!
SME: Welcome to INFF!
Sam Miller: Thanks.
SME: So, big ol' important question to start with: What's the best thing to eat there in Rexburg?
Sam Miller: Well, knowing the vast options here in Rexburg...probably Ramire's. Its a Mexican place! Could you tell by the name?
SME: I figured either Mexican or German. One of the two.
Sam Miller: I've never eaten a German before...
SME: I wonder if Germans are tasty.
Sam Miller: Most likely.
SME: Do you have a fav dish over at Ramire's?
Sam Miller: I'd have to go with their carne asada burrito! With lots and lots of guacamole...lots of it.
SME: "Lots of Guacamole" is pretty much my favorite dish at any Mexican food restaurant.
Sam Miller: I usually just say could I have a dish of guacamole with a carne asada burrito on the side!
SME: "How much for a gallon of guacamole?" Could you imagine the server's face if you asked that?
Sam Miller: I'll take a picture for you next time I ask that.
SME: Awesome. So, Sam. What is your favorite continent?
Sam Miller: I'd have to say Antarctica. It was the only one I wasn't sure how to spell.
SME: That was Liz's answer too! You must be related!
Sam Miller: She has spelling issues too, eh?!
SME: Is it your favorite because you can't spell it?
Sam Miller: I think its my favorite because I can't see anybody having to kill cockroaches or other bugs there...Wouldn't that be the life?
SME: Amen. As a recent blog post of mine clearly indicated, I am not a fan of roaches!!
Sam Miller: What don't you like about roaches?
SME: They are ugly. And don't die. Same reason I don't like zombies.
Sam Miller: At least zombies aren't hairy like roaches are...That makes roaches worse.
SME: Fact: Roaches are worse than zombies.
I am pretty sure there is a law somewhere that absolutely requires that all college students be asked what their major is. What's your major?
Sam Miller: Knowing the amount of problems I should have from being the youngest of 5 (not to mention who my siblings are...) I chose to major in Psychology! Will that get me free counseling?
SME: Only if you "counsel" yourself. But that would probably make you schizophrenic. hmm..
Sam Miller: That's the plan...Self diagnosis is the way to go. Actually, I am probably losing money due to tuition. Maybe I should have just went to someone else!
SME: Well, how would you like to hone your fledgling future-psychiatrist skills to play a little game?
Sam Miller: Absolutely I would.
SME: I'm calling it, "Man. That guy could really use a good shrink". Two questions. Get 'em right (and there is no wrong answer, really) and you win!
Sam Miller: I think I can handle this!
Is there a prize?
SME: Fame. Glory. Bragging rights.
Sam Miller: Those I can use.
SME: Awesome. Okay, #1: Name a TV character who could REALLY use a good shrink.
Sam Miller: Michael Scott. Yesh, that's right. Michael Scott.
SME: Um. Correct. So very, very correct.
Name a movie character who could REALLY use a good shrink.
Sam Miller: That one's a little tougher...I'm shooting for the main girl from Twilight. Reason being that she is dating a vampire and a werewolf! Plus, lots of people will probably not like that I picked her... What's her name again?
SME: That would be Bella Swan. I would have to agree. She definitely has some very masochistic tendencies--she really ought to see someone about that. Not to mention a touch of an obsessive personality.
You win the game!!!! Hoorah!!!
That means it's time to head off to the portrait gallery!
Sam Miller: I'm a bit scared... Should I be? Something tells me yesh.
SME: My portraits are fabulous, very life-like stick figure drawings. You'll love it.
*an aura of awesomeness fills the air*
Sam Miller: Do I have an afro? I've always wanted one!
SME: You have one now. You're welcome.
Sam Miller: Wow, look how kind you are! I take back the comment about needing a shrink because of you.
SME: Time for the traditional final question of the interview. Give me the top 5 reasons this is the best blog interview you've ever done. Ready. Go.
Sam Miller: 5. We made the most important discovery I've ever made on a blog interview: roaches are worse than zombies! And that's official...
4. I found out what my favorite continent was.
3. It helped me procrastinate my dreaded homework! After all, my siblings needs come first.
2. I now have "fame, glory, and bragging rights".
1. I have now accomplished my dream of having an afro and I didn't even have to get a perm! What a great interview!
SME: Yup. I know how to conduct a rockin interview! Thanks for being my INFF guest!
Sam Miller: Anytime!
SME: *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!
