Your Favorite Curse Word?

This year I’m going to start a new tradition of sorts. If you’ve ever watched Inside the Actors Studio hosted by James Lipton you know that he follows each interview by submitting a questionnaire to the guest. The questionnaire concept was originated by a French television personality Bernard Pivot who used the Proust Questionnaire. The Lipton version is comprised of ten questions:

  1. What is your favorite word?
  2. What is your least favorite word?
  3. What  turns you on?
  4. What turns you off?
  5. What sound or noise do you love?
  6. What sound or noise do you hate?
  7. What is your favorite curse word?
  8. What profession other thank your own would you like to attempt?
  9. What profession would you not like to do?
  10. If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?

These questions don’t exactly work for that I’m going for, but I think the concept is perfect. Each year I’m going to interview the kids with ten questions, only changes the questions slightly when they reach a major age milestone where a change makes sense. What questions am I going to use?

  1. What is your favorite word?
  2. What word don’t you like?
  3. Who is your best friend?
  4. Where is your favorite place to go?
  5. Where don’t you like to go?
  6. What are you afraid of?
  7. What makes you happy?
  8. What makes you sad?
  9. If you could have any present in the world for your birthday what would it be?
  10. What do you want to do when you grow-up?

We will have to see how the answers change from year to year and child to child. Should be interesting. I think I will look at making a book for each of them to record their answers so they can have it when they grow-up. I’m going to ask Lex his questions as it gets closer to his birthday because at his age the answers can change like the wind. I’ll post his answers in the next few weeks. It should be a laugh.
