Yesterday I on my round of blogs I found that Rhea has done an interview of her son's and posted their replies and her comments. I thought it would be interesting to try these questions out on my own sons. I thought it would be interesting to see how each of them approached each question, would there be any patterns, any similar responses, would they be predictable.

So here are the questions and the different replies. (The all know that the others have answered the same questions but none of them know what any of the others answered, I shall show them later).

I have two. My first when I was about 5, I was on a spaceship there were 3 monsters chasing me pink, yellow and turquoise. The other my mum and dad abandoned me at a pub and didn’t come back.
its not really scary, running late for school, the gate was blocked by 100 sheep wearing PE kit, I was worried about being told off for being late so ran round to a hole in fence
ET weight lifting …..still haunts me
had a recurring dream on the bridge where we used to watch the regatta, I was there alone and fell over the bridge there were sharks underneath as soon as I hit the bottom I woke up

Put it in a high interest savings account just live off the interest but not touch the million dollars
Get it changed to pounds use it on things that I need

some predictable answers here but also some less predictable. I am sure you can work out which of my boys gave which answers. (If you are not sure, you can find their ages on my side bar under 'The Cast'. If you couldn't tell one of them was quite reluctant to begin with but after a while got a bit more enthusiastic.

Lady in red said...

can't you just tell that he really really want to answer these questions his mum was asking him.

did you spot 'The Answer' you were looking for?

Dazzed and Confused said...

Great stuff.
I'm guessing at least one of your sons didn’t want to play Q&A with mommy.
Reading through the answers I could tell you have great boys there.

Rhea said...

ROFL These were great! I love all the different answers. Some really hilarious comments. Your boys are great!!

I''m so glad you did this. I loved it!

Mei Del said...

i can tell the toenail fella couldn't wait to do the q&a lol - let's see he's the16 year old?

Vi said...

Brilliant meme! I'm gonna have to try it on my boys!

Gypsy said...

I like the blue boys answers especially the part about clearing the family's debts (that's so thoughtful) and the fact he likes spag bol and LOST.

nitebyrd said...

Your boys sound intelligent, caring and thoughtful. You must be proud.

How do you prepare those toenails that makes them so delectible? (lol!)

Mulder thanks they are all great boys in their own ways. I am very lucky that they have all turned out so well......ok I may have had something to do with it.

Lady in red said...

Rhea thanks for giving me the idea, it was an interesting experiment. Maybe in a few months I shall ask them the same questions again to see if their answers are any different.

Lady in red said...

mei del you are quite right it was the 16 yr old who wanted toenails

Lady in red said...

Vi I am sure you will get some very interesting answers

Lady in red said...

gypsy the blue boy's answers are deceptive.....he has good intentions but just never manages to quite convert his intentions into deeds......his money sense or lack of has caused the majority of my tears in the last 18 months. I love him to bits though

Lady in red said...

nitebyrd they are their mother's sons so it goes without saying lol. I have never had much control over my boys but I must have done something right as they have all grown up with a sense of right and wrong. they are polite, intelligent and surprisingly witty considering they have grown up with my awful sense of humour.
Now if only I could get them to clean up afterthemselves and stop breaking my bed!!
