If you can hang out for a whole day with any person or character from a book, TV, or movie who would be? Dog Man or Dog Man or Dog Man or SpongeBob. Dog man or SpongeBob, what would you do with both of them? If we were together we would play Roblox, Sponge bolx and dog bolx and then just normal roblox. They actually have dog bloxs? No they don't, I just made that thing up. Oh, so what would you do with Dog Man? I would say let's go adventures together. Adventures. Oh and he might lick my face because in the stories he says “they always lick his face.” Um and what do you think you would do is SpongeBob? Besides playing SpongeBob and Roblox? Play outside catching jellyfish, play with Patrick. Squidward’s kind of annoying, I might play with him, but he doesn't seem like he always want to play. Maybe he would like someone else peaceful to play with, instead of SpongeBob and Patrick. So you don't think that you'd be bored with SpongeBob? No? I think he would be entertaining. Yeah he is pretty entertaining.
What will you tell your grandkids, or younger generations or my kids in general? I'd probably tell them that 2020 was, well personally for me it wasn't a depressing year, I feel like for others it definitely was. It was just a year of much frustration, much confusion, much adaptation. And I don't know I feel like it'd be a good, a life lesson to give them, you know, like things like this can happen and then things that are really, like can really really -- really affect people like things that can take away your loved ones. Things that make you see that you really need to be careful when things like this come around, so yeah.
Do I have any memories of recess as a kid. I have lots of memories of recess as a kid. Being out on the playground, on the monkey bars with my friends and watching all these kids that could do these flips. I was so jealous of them. It was, I remember one girl in third grade, Stacy, came off the bars to do a flip and hit another bar and busted her head wide open, blood went everywhere it was so gross. It was so weird. We're all like freaking out. But yeah, it was, I have, I don't think I ever got hurt, but like I said my friend got hurt, a lot of indoor recesses. You know, when I worked at the schools we tried to have what was called rainy day cart, so we had, every classroom had like $150 so the teachers could go buy rainy day stuff to have on a cart that’s specific to their room. California you don't get a lot of rainy days, but you do get some. So, but I have a lot of memories of you know, as a kid playing dodgeball in the gym, Red Rover, Red Rover that one but now you can't play either one of those games because they're too hazardous to kids, you know.
The first election I voted in, interesting story, let me tell you about my parents. When I was a young child. I lived out in the township, out in one of the townships and we voted actually went into a voting booth and would fill out a paper ballot and mark our ex on the ballot. And what my parents would do is bring me a sample ballot to -- to do my quote-unquote vote. So I was six years old in 1960 when President Kennedy was elected and my first ballot quote-unquote ballot was for President Kennedy. So as a child every year when my folks went to go vote they would bring me a sample ballot home. So I think, first of all that that was kind of cool and I just marvel at the – the -- the brilliance of my parents to get me involved in voting and to have me experience voting, and to get me really want to vote. I really wanted to vote, the Constitution allowed -- it was changed to allow eighteen-year-olds to vote. I was eighteen in 1972 and I cast my vote, my first ballot, my first vote for president. I cast for George McGovern, Senator McGovern. And that was, I don't know a fool's errand I guess but he -- he spoke to me I guess, you know through the media and stuff and I was interested in what he wanted to accomplish. After Bobby Kennedy died man, it was tough to get behind a candidate again and put all your hopes and dreams there. But, the first time I ever voted was just cool. I went out again out to the township hall and picked up my official ballot, finally after all these years, and walked into the actual voting booth. They have wooden voting booths that are still use out there. And put my paper down and put my ballot down rather, and marked my ex on the people I wanted to vote for and folded It up, however we were supposed to fold it and brought it out. And it was just the coolest thing that I ever could imagine to actually have an actual real ballot and so my -- my parents are pretty smart. They got me to want to vote twelve years before I was able to and they had me practice voting…
