Today, a 7-year-old pal informed me of some news. Big news.
Over the weekend, he switched favorite animals.
Penguins were his favorite animal, but he was at the haircutter place, and they had a snake toy, so he switched his favorite animal to snakes. But then he switched it back to penguins. Also, his favorite foods are still tacos and pizza.
You gotta be you, man. You gotta be you.
My favorite animals have always been dogs, although I did go through a brief duck phase in 1986. And my favorite foods are cooked carrots and no-bake cookies. Because they are delicious.
I love this simplicity. It's like college, when people would ask where you were from and what your major was - but to the nth degree. You can really learn a lot about a person by asking about their favorite animals and favorite foods.
So. What's your favorite animal? What's your favorite food? Tell all!
