Whom would you like to be for one day?

It'd be interesting to be my 4 y/o son for a day… if I could experience things as him but also somehow remember what that was like afterwards. All the childhood fun of just running around, riding a bike in a circle, telling jokes that make no sense [1]. Also it'd be interesting to know what he's thinking as he gets upset at me :-)

What did you yearn for in your childhood that your parent(s) never gave you?

I honestly can't think of anything now, I was very lucky. No doubt I did yearn for stuff I didn't ever get for Christmas though!

How do you know when it's time to ask for help?

When it becomes clear I'm about to waste a lot of time or physical / emotional energy. Probably later than I should.

Recommend, and provide a recipe if you have one, a refreshing summer beverage.

A can of San Pellegrino Limonata.

Which childhood things do you still enjoy?

Many things. Most recently I may have protested putting together meccano, lego and things with the kids… but secretly (or not so secretly) enjoyed it quite a bit.
