Last night Tyler pulled out some Table Topics (family version) cards and started quizzing Gavin. His first answer was so startling that I started recording the conversation.
What is the first thing you would do as the President of the United States? Share the gospel.
If you could be any animal, what would you be? A cheetah, 'cause I could run so fast!
What do you do to keep going when you want to quit? Get more muscles when I'm playing sports.
Would you rather have no rules, or the rules you already have? I think the rules we have now, so we could be safe.
What's the hardest thing you've ever done? Try to keep my legs apart when I was climbing up the slide.
What takes a lot of courage? Nephi did some courage. He has a lot of courage.
Would you rather be a rich movie star or a not-so-rich scientist who cures cancer? The not-so-rich one, so I could help people and be a really helpful guy, to be good.
What family/school rule would you most like to change? That, um, hmm...that when we go in and out so many times when it's raining, we can't come back in. I would change that rule, so we could stay out longer!
If you could compete in any Olympic sport, what would it be? I would be the "sneaky cheetahs" so you can sneak behind people, then run at them and jump over them, and then the people would say, "Hey," and then you would shoot baskets over them.

How are you like Mom? I have the same color of skin. How are you like Dad? Because I have blue eyes, and because I have the same color of skin.
Would you go to space if you could? You mean if I wanted to and I didn't even ask?

How old should you be before you watch a PG-13 movie? Thirteen, I guess. I've watched PG-5.
What are some good things and bad things about a new baby? The bad one is the baby could run around and go downstairs on its tummy. The good one is the mom could put it in its crib and it could take a nap.
What makes something art? Paint.
What's the best junk food ever created? Broccoli slide. It's like broccoli shaped like a slide!
