The Thanksgiving Interrogation

Mia has a project for school.  She’s devised a series of questions to ask all adult family members and is recording the interviews on her phone.  I’ll admit that I’m not sure what the end-game is but with a little video-editing assist from yours truly, we’re going to end up with something to keep for a very long time.  Mia spent several hours over Thanksgiving Day to interrogate her adult relatives.  It was only slightly awkward in the dining room what with the turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, harsh industrial lights, and car batteries.  But she eventually got the truth out of them.  Here are the questions she asked:

  • Where were you born?
  • What is your favorite childhood memory?
  • What was your favorite thing to do when you were my age?
  • What was your happiest moment when you were a kid?
  • Favorite place to travel?
  • Where did you grow up?
  • Coolest experience?
  • How did that experience make you feel?
  • Favorite grade in school?
  • Was there a moment in your life when you laughed so hard you couldn’t stop?
  • When did you have the most fun in your life?
  • When did you get your first phone?
  • What college did you go to?
  • Any special day that made me feel different?
  • Favorite day of the month?
  • Funniest experience?
  • Lucky number?
