In Front of the Mike

Hey, I got my first interview for Pine Tree Paradise, and one of my first times interviewed ever. It’s here on Blog Interviewer. It was a different experience. I spend my days interviewing economists, politicians and people on the street for news stories. I ask the questions. I don’t answer them. This time it was the other way round. Be brief, I thought. Get to the point; give them the good stuff. Keep it simple. The interview was by email so I could exude without limitation. I tried to keep it reasonable.

I hope you like it.

My kids said it looks cool… and then they hurried back to the kitchen table where they are collecting trading stickers for the World Cup. My eldest daughter opened up a new packet of stickers (like baseball trading cards, only you stick them in an album) and she got Carlos Tevez, one of Argentina’s star strikers and her favorite player. She jumped up and down and chanted, “CAR-LOS TEV-EZ, CAR-LOS TEV-EZ.” I asked my five-year-old autistic son who his favorite player is. He thought for a second and then he said, “Scooby-Doo.”

I thought that was plain and simple and to the point.

I hope my interview was too.
