Level 1: Noah doesn’t know which holiday is his favorite. What is your favorite holiday? Why do you like it?
I think my favorite holiday is probably self-injury awareness day. While it is a cause that I believe in, a bigger reason that I like that holiday is that there are no expectations as to what I have to do and think about that holiday. If I want to do something to celebrate I totally can–and it’s easy just spread the word and wear orange. If I don’t want to do something that is totally fine as well and there is no pressure or societal expectation to do anything…Yeah, I’m lame, but I’d rather avoid all the expectations of the traditional holidays.
Level 2: Sally was so sick, she had to stay in bed for a week. Tell about a time when you were sick.
I think it was in 6th grade, but it was definitely in middle school. I didn’t feel that good, but I went to school that Saturday because it was the last declam meet. I didn’t tell anyone I didn’t feel good, but I threw up in the bathroom before we got on the bus. I felt lousy all day but I made it through the meet. Partway through forcing myself to eat dinner though I ran to the bathroom and didn’t make it all the way to the toilet with my vomit…and now you are probably officially very grossed out…sorry about that…
