I'd pick three of my closest friends and slide on the slides all day.

Mrs. Young in fourth grade because she's really nice.
Which person do you admire the most?
Will Smith because he's a really good actor and funny.

Probably Antarctica so I could see all the snow and penguins.

My mom makes a chicken casserole that's really good, and I like it. I like going to Osaka and ordering steak (teriyaki).

I'd like to meet Jesus. I'd ask Him, "How is it being perfect?" And I'd ask how it felt to get on the cross and get killed for us.
