9: More Challenges, More Questions, Funner

Hey guys, guess who just turned 9? If you guessed George, G$ or Duke, you’re correct. If you were like, what? Weren’t you just a baby like a minute ago? You’re also correct.

What’s it like turning 9 during a pandemic? Let’s just say when my mom asked where I’d go if I could go anywhere in the world, I said, “Someplace without Corona.” Waaaa, waaaa. It’s not all bad news though. Here’s what I had to say about a few other things, including my favorite color (it’s a rollercoaster ride, peeps, strap in), my future career, and how great my life is (spoiler alert: really, really great).

Here’s a little snapshot of things I like, not necessarily in order*:

  1. My Mom
  2. My Dad
  3. Rosie (just kidding, Hazy, or am I?)
  4. Hazy
  5. Parmesan cheese
  6. Candy
  7. Minecraft
  8. Talking about Minecraft
  9. Roblox
  10. Pasta
  11. Hockey
  12. LEGOS
  13. Cuddles
  14. Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  15. Movie Night
  16. Playing “I love you,” “I love you more,” “I love you more more,” etc with Mom either via hand squeezes or verbally.
  17. Dunkin’ Donuts
  18. Recounting forgettable moments from movies and HISHE clips with, “Remember when…” a la Chris Farley.
  19. Playing games with my family (Uno, Connect Four & Monopoly)
  20. Ice Cream
  21. Koi (my friend’s guinea pig)
  22. Remote-controlled things
  23. Not wearing pants

Yours, George (Duke)
