What Greta Thinks of Me: Take Two

File under: greta


Nine months ago, to the day, I interviewed Greta with 21 questions about moi. The results were pretty amusing, if you recall. I decided to reinterview her with the same questions to see what the results would be nine months later. The results, you'll see, are quite wordier. This is no surprise to me since she has turned into quite the chatterbox...It's a good thing I'm a fast typist. She is still fairly nonsensical. Anyway, here are both results, for comparison. At the very least, read #13. And #21 is NOT true.


1. What is something mom always says to you?

3/10/09: You do it. I think mommy is going to be a dinosaur.

12/10/09: I'm nice and you love me, and you let me sit on your lap, and my friends sit on my lap, and I sit on my friends' laps, and I love my dad, and he lets me sit on my lap, and I love him.


2. What makes mom happy?

3/10/09: Cereal flakes.

12/10/09: To kiss and to hug. To do stuff that's nice. To, like, paint artwork. Color and help your mom eat, and I love you. And you're special to me and then I'm done.


3. What makes mom sad?

3/10/09: Doo-doo. You fall down and that makes you sad.

12/10/09: To hurt people. And to bite. Not to hug people. Just to do bad things. To hit. Just to try to say, "I'm tellin' on you," and it makes you mad if I say "stupid," and that's all I do...I don't do all those things.


4. How does your mom make you laugh?

3/10/09: Say a funny thing. Say hands off the nana.

12/10/09: When I tickle you. When I put my hand in your armpit and tickle you. And tickle you on the shoulder.

8. What is her favorite thing to do?

3/10/09: Eat me.

12/10/09: To tickle and give hugs and play with green sand. And blue sand. And take pictures. And bounce this ball like this.


9. What does your mom do when you're not around?

3/10/09: Cry.

12/10/09: Go at work while I'm at school.

13. What does your mom do for her job?

3/10/09: Check your email.

12/10/09: Works and does nice things. Teaches people how to do some things. Did you know Dad fights fires? He does that. Do you know that?


14. What is your mom's favorite food?

3/10/09: Pasta

#1 You have the cutest house

You have the cutest house ever, and a daughter to match. Loved this post

#2 This is awesome. I am totally

This is awesome. I am totally stealing this idea to use on Emmy!

#3 So very, very cute

I tried this earlier in the year when you did it, but I didn't post Fizzy's answers. Now I'm going to put both sets of answers up together.

Holy crap, she's just decided to turn on the garden sprinklers. Excuse me.

#4 I always knew you were nice,

I always knew you were nice, but geez! This was like an info-mercial for niceness. Anyway, I'm glad you're still nice and you're raising a very cute and funny little girl- which is nice.

#5 Loved it!

Your Greta interview just reminded me of how much I miss her. She was my favorite client of 2009, closely followed by her mom and dad.

Hope you are all settled and enjoy the holidays.

#6 heh

Kir - I think she's referring to her Uncle Eric, who is a fireman but who is NOT that dad, as I once proved on Maury. At least she doesn't still think Pat is a "Pizza Buyer," which is what she used to think he did.

Sarah - I'm glad to see the H is back in your name. You must be less tired now. :)

Taryn - We recently got that hat from a friend who crocheted it for her. I absolutely love it. And, yes, it's safe to assume you know her style. Looking forward to giving Ollie his gift (and Pixie, and you guys) and seeing you soon!

#7 ha...

i always knew Pat would grow up to be a fireman.

#8 Thank you

That made my day!

#9 i almost bought greta a very
