Exclusive: Interview with my kids

Longtime Dodger Thoughts readers might remember the visit of Young Miss Weisman to the comments section a couple of years ago. Tonight, I am privileged to offer this exclusive interview not only with 8-year-old Young Miss Weisman but also her oldest brother, 6-year-old Young Master Weisman.

They will be typing their own responses.  Unless they start to misbehave terribly. (Do I make myself clear?)

Because this is a Dodger website, we’ll start off with a Dodger question or two before we move on to other topics of the day.

Me: How much do you like the Dodgers?

Young Master Weisman: A lot, I love them.

Young Miss Weisman: A- wait, are you ready? You might need some earplugs. Okay, here goes: A LOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Me: Oh, that pleases me.  But sometimes at the games it doesn’t seem like you love being there. What’s your favorite part about going to a Dodger game?

Young Master Weisman: Er-wait, are you ready? Cover your ears.  THEY WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Young Miss Weisman: I like looking at the score board and learning what all the things mean. And I like the food. I’m done. P.S. Young Master Weisman is a copycat.

Young Master Weisman: I hate when Young Miss Weisman calls me a copycat. Stop Young Miss Weisman.

Young Miss Weisman: Fine.

Me: Ah, I wish all our disputes were settled so amicably. Now, what is your favorite sport to watch and your favorite sport to play?

Young Master Weisman: I love to watch baseball and swim.

Young Miss Weisman: I like to watch baseball and basketball and I like to swim and ice skate.

Me: You both are playing basketball this winter.  How do you feel when you’re out on the court?  Is it fun? Strange? Exciting? Confusing?

Young Master Weisman: It is fun.  It is exciting.  It is very confusing.

Young Miss Weisman: I feel BIG on defense and small on offense.

Me: What would you do if you were sitting at Dodger Stadium eating a hot dog or cheeseburger and a foul ball came toward you?

Young Master Weisman: I would reach and try to catch. That would be AWESOME.

Young Miss Weisman: I would put down my cheeseburger (that’s right, I don’t like hot dogs), reach out, and catch the ball.

Me: And to think I thought you’d say, “Duck!!!!!”  OK, it’s your brother’s bedtime, so we’d better wrap this up for now. What would you like to say to the readers of Dodger Thoughts before you go get in your pajamas?

Young Master Weisman: Have a good time reading, I hope you like it.

Young Miss Weisman: Just keep doing what you’re doing and you will be (and are) great Dodger Thoughts readers!
