This week, I interviewed Petie, from Jenna Greene’s novel, “Imagine.” It was…Well, the interview was interesting.
C. Penticoff: “Hi, Petie.
C. Penticoff: “Tell us a little about yourself.”
Petie: “I’m awesome and handsome and smart. And also humble. I think. What does humble mean?”
C. Penticoff: “Yeah, I think it’s safe to say you misunderstand the meaning of humble. Anyway, moving on. Tell me about the hardest decision you’ve ever had to make.”
Petie: “Hmmm.. One time I had to decide between eating a pie and a piece of cake. Guess what? I ate both!”
C. Penticoff: “That’s not a deci-Oh, forget it. What is the best present you have ever received?”
Petie: “A button!”
C. Penticoff: “A button?”

C. Penticoff: **Clears throat** “Okay, then. What’s the best thing to have ever happened to you?”
Petie: “I found a shiny rock.”

Petie: “First, I wake up. Then I check to see if I’m awake. I eat breakfast with my sister and then, if she makes me, I brush my teeth. Then I do stuff. I play and find leaves and explore and tell REALLY AWESOME knock-knock jokes.”
C. Penticoff: “I see. Why don’t you tell us a knock-knock joke?”
Petie: “Knock knock.”
C. Penticoff: “Who’s there?”
Petie: “Interupting cow.”
C. Penticoff: “Petie, I’m not-“
C. Penticoff: “I’m not play-“
C. Penticoff: “Seriously, I need to end this inter-“
