Starring: FunnyMan

Okay, so last but not least, Introducing the oldest of the Off-Spring, FunnyMan. Age 14, Grade 9.

ME:What is the best part about being a teenager?
FunnyMan: Later in the teenage years, I guess driving would be really cool. there are more opportunities. but also more responsibilities.

ME: What is your favorite class in High School this year?
FM: Photography

ME: The lyrics that you write...most of them are about love, or jaded love. Would you say this is from personal experience?
FM: no

ME: If you wrote a book, what would it be called?
FM: I am writing a book, its called Dark Matter
ME: What's it about?
FM: Its a very disturbing book about a boy where everything in his life goes wrong. Drugs, parents were killed in front of him, and he has attained the ability to... manipulate matter. A super hero story.
ME: Deep. (Where's that number to the counselor???)

ME: What is one thing you really HATE doing?
FM: Homework

ME: If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
FM: laziness, find my self-motivation to actually do something

ME: If you were old enough to vote in the election this year, who would you vote for?
FM: McCain
ME: Hmmm. Well, I am a firm believer that you need to form your own opinions...Be sure to consult me when you're old enough to vote...

ME: You'll be taking driver's ed next year. Any thought to the type of car you'd like to drive?
FM: 1965 Mustang Fastback, black with two white racing stripes going down the middle. Dice in the rear view mirror.
ME: (choke, gasp, cough). Right. So, the mini-van it is...

ME: What is your Ultimate Dream Job?
FM: McDonalds! No not really. Actor, Singer song-writer, screen writer, movie director, a highly acclaimed author, or maybe just an English teacher.

ME: What are you doing now to prepare yourself for that?
FM: writing stories/poems, singing a lot, making film projects with friends, making people laugh and teachers shaking there heads in disbelief to what I've said.

ME: If there was a movie about your life, who would you want to play you?
FM: There aren't many good young actors that I would like to portray me and seeing that I haven't grown into a full adult I don't know an actor extremely fit for my part. But maybe... Aaron Yoo, Frankie Muniz, and Rob Schneider as an older me.

ME: What is the one thing that you think that most people do not know about you?
FM: I've played Capture the Flag in my underwear.
ME: A mother's proud moment...I am sure.
FM: hahahaha.

ME: Your life philosophy?
FM: Be free to express yourselves, don't be embarrassed when you do something stupid/out of the ordinary. Just laugh and move along.

Thanks. Now, go do your homework.

Nice. "or maybe just an English teacher" - I'm not sure there's anything "just" about it; that's a big job!

Blog Stalker said...

What a great interview. Funny man indeed! BTW An owner of a McDonalds Franchise store in the right location and under the right management can make a killing

So, still waiting for your "embarrassing moment" you said was coming........hmmmmmmmm

Have a great day!

This Mom said...

You so don't look old enough to have a teenager, who by the way is very funny.

thanks for stooping by on yesterday's layover

RhondaLue said...

I agree with this mom. You look way to young to have a teen!

I like his taste in cars, btw!

It sounds like this kids got a super bright future ahead of him...so bright I think I need a pair of shades!

Willeyes said...

He is so great, and I'm sure he got his sense of humor from his mother:)

Susie said...

Great interview and a great kid! He sounds very creative.

lilianril said...

FunnyMan has at least dome good taste. His car choice is awesome!

Mrs. S said...

"just" an English teacher? Oh children! ha!

And good boy on the voting thing! :)

Your kids are adorable.

And I highly doubt you have 30 pounds....you surely don't look like it. You are skinny!

purplehaze said...

The interviews were great thanks for sharing. I love his choice in the car too! Writer, singer sounds like mom!

Kelsey said...

Very cute! He sounds like a great kid...my brother is 12 and no where as sweet sounding as your son!

i think it's funny how people say that you don't look old enough to have a teenager. any fourteen year old can get pregnant, which means that even i could have a teenager right now. of course people think i'm younger than i am, too. i always get carded at the casinos when i order virgin drinks.

Lady Dorothy said...
