1. Dogs or Cats? Why?

Cameron: Both. I like soft things and I’m bad at making decisions.

Cole: Cats, because they don't really need you and when they die, free rug.

John: Dogs. My sinuses are very anti cat.

Thomas: Cats. I lay around on the floor and stretch.

2. Aliens. Do they exist?

Cameron: Yes and they are some of the best movies.

Cole: Probably, way out there.

John: Pondering existence is an existential crisis waiting to happen; I'd lean yes.

Thomas:  I think we should first decide what an alien actually is. Life beyond planet Earth? Seems likely. Grays? Impossible to know currently. Ancient humanoid species ruling us from the dark side of the moon? Highly probable.

3. Drug of Choice? (None is not an option btw)

Cameron: SSRIs.

Cole: Ibuprofen.

John: Zyrtec. 

Thomas: Not prejudiced.

4. Brown or white gravy? (Neither is not an option btw)

Cameron: White, super peppery, in a bathtub, biscuits everywhere.

Cole: Brown, I like it dirty.

John: Brown wears the crown.

Thomas: White; cooked real hard.

5. Favorite weapon of mass destruction?

Cameron: Fox News.

Cole: My colon.

John: Greed.

Thomas: Giza.

6. Favorite marsupial?

Cameron: I wish more things had pouches.

Cole: My uncle. He's furry and wears a fanny pack, so he's basically a marsupial.

John: 90's tourists.

Thomas: Have y’all ever seen a koala?

7. Favorite Superhero?

Cameron: Norm Hitzges.

Cole: Batman.

John: Francis of Assisi.

Thomas: Vash the Stampede.

8. Did Dez catch it?

Cameron: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Cole: I don't care.

John: Yes, and it's a shame because Dez loves to play hard and he just wants to win, y'all.

Thomas: It is known.

9. When you die, if you were given the choice to come back as any animal, which would you choose?

Cameron: One that’s far away from humans. Or a whale. Maybe an elephant. I’m bad at making decisions.

Cole: The one from the muppets. I've always wanted to learn drums.

John: Turquoise-browed motmot aka pájaro reloj ("clock bird").

Thomas: Lynx.

10. The best MJ is: Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson, Mike Jones, or Milla Jovovich?

Cameron: Unlisted.

Cole: Michael Jackson.

John: Michael Jordan.

Thomas: I'm bad.


about the word writer person:

Prewitt Scott-Jackson writes Dad poetry & short fiction when he's not hyping and typing for Fort Worth Noise. His writing can be found in Ghost City Press (New York), Five 2 One Magazine (Los Angeles), Prairie Schooner (University of Nebraska Press) and Sick Lit Magazine (Texas), among others. He prefers short walks on the beach because – and I quote – “It’s really hard to walk on sand.”
