25 Things You Didn’t Know about 5-year Old Me

  1. I like to wear things on my head (underwear, a colander, my Spiderman ski mask in 60-degree weather), but I prefer not to wear pants.
  2. I want to be a pilot or a chef when I grow up. If I become a chef, my restaurant will be called Mr. Bum Bum Head.

    You don’t want to know what’s on the menu at MBBH.

  3. I love fruit and can eat unlimited amounts of it. I once ate three peaches, a plum, and a quart of strawberries before 11 am. The only vegetable I really like is cucumber, which is… a fruit.
  4. I talk or sing to myself every night for about an hour before going to sleep. I hope someone’s enjoying my Bohemian Rhapsody on the baby monitor.
  5. People say I look just like my dad, but I don’t know.

    I’m the one in the back.

  6. I love my Mama and I tell her so all the time. Sometimes I also fall in love with other people, like the lady on the T platform whom I told, “Guess what? I love you.” I never did get her number.
  7. I can tell the difference between the orange line and the commuter rail by the sound they make.
  8. I LOVE BUBBLES like you wouldn’t believe.

    Oh my god, BUBBLES!!!!!

  9. I also love school, after-school, mac & cheese, LEGOs, trains, gum, doggies, walkie talkies, baths, trampolines, bounce houses, ice cream, and cleaning toilets. I would clean the toilets every day if Mama would let me.
  10. I worship my big sister.

    I mean, how cool is she?

  11. I don’t like pizza, but I love cheese, especially shredder cheddar. On average, cheese is a part of at least two meals a day for me.
  12. I’ll always tell you the truth. Just the other day, I told mama and her friends that they didn’t look very good.
  13. I can hula hoop like a boss.
  14. I can ride my scooter for 1-2 blocks before crying about how I hate my scooter and scootering.
  15. I’m up for anything. If you tell me to pull a snowy branch over my head, I’ll pull that branch. If you tell me to try Opa’s “special ketchup”, I’ll try it. If you tell me to walk more than a quarter mile, I’ll whine until you break.
  16. I am the happiest guy you know.
  17. I’m also the messiest guy you know.

    There was a puddle.

  18.  My catchphrases include, “No, really…” (even if no one’s disputing what I said), “First of all…” (there’s never a second of all), and “I had a blast!”
  19. I’m a creature of habit. I like to read the same book every night (The Gingerbread Man Loose in the School), eat the same breakfast every day (yogurt with berries and a side of shredder cheddar), and listen to the same songs over and over (Shut Up and Dance, Can’t Stop the Feeling, Uptown Funk).

    On your birthday, you get two kinds of yogurt with berries!

  20. I can build a train station out of almost anything.
  21. I can’t blow my nose.
  22. I was named after my paternal grandfather (George) and my maternal great-grandfather (Tse Fu). I was Duke for a little while, but it didn’t stick. Hazy came up with Georgie Burgles and it did. I also go by G$, Gigi, Georgie and Jeege.
  23. I like having Bros’ Night with my dad.
  24. I have strange obsessions, like this cupcake-shaped kitchen timer that I got at Boomerang’s. Dada broke it (by accident), and I ask him all the time to find me a new one. Also, I don’t like it when you don’t put the cap back on things.

    If you find this, I’ll give you all my money ($5.75) for it.

  25. First of all, I had a blast today. No, really!

Special bonus fun facts are in my 5-year interview video below:

This is the third video in this series. You can compare my answers at age 4 and age 3.
