You look snazzy.
I’m going to ballroom-dancing class, and you know what’s weird? There are more boys than girls, so we have to share the girls.

Is it the kind of class where girls wear white gloves?
Yes. It looks like they work in kitchens.

What are your other hobbies?
Soccer. I don’t play a certain position. They just throw the ball, and we run like a pack of bulls.

And what’s your favorite part of school?
There are two best parts: recess and dismissal.

What would you do if you didn’t have to do homework?
Read books. I’m on page 212 of The Quest for Paradise: The Return to the Kingdom of Fantasy.

You look like a man with a plan. What do you want to be when you grow up?
I might want to be an ice-cream man who only sells ice cream in the winter.
