There really is no guy quite like Israel.
I thought interviewing him would probably prove to be quite interesting (because he’s interesting) and insightful, and tell you all sorts of things about this young man.
So, I sat down to interview him and hear all about his many passions and be very…well, you know…informed.
But there’s something you should know about Israel.
He’s the kind of guy who lives life %200.
Like tonight while playing “pitch and catch” he’s running all over the yard, “Monica! SECOND!” and “Monica, HOME!” And along with that making me run all over the place too. Finally, I stop to catch my breath and say, “do know why I like pitch and catch?”
He just looks at me like why are we having this conversation in the middle of a World Series game?
But I continue anyways, “I like it because it’s relaxing.”
His jaw drops, and he just stares at me like I am the latest alien from mars.
Back to my point, when he is passionate about something….wow…he is reallllly passionate about it. 🙂
And, from this interview it would also appear he has a one-track mind.
Anyways, I would love to write pages and pages of funny stories, and reasons I love this little man… but I will get on to the Interview.
Monica: What is your favorite thing to do?
Israel: Play baseball.
M: How do you feel about broccoli?
I: *grimaces* BOO.
But if it’s in sauce I like it.
M: What is one of your favorite memories?
I: When you WILL play pitch and catch with me!!!
M: Tell me a time you did something very silly.
*gets a sneaky grin on his face*
*chews on baseball glove*
When I chewed on a baseball glove…
So, can you play baseball with me?
M: Tell me a story involving a baseball.
I: Remember how I told you that I knocked the guts out of the baseball?
The most awesomest thing in baseball history!

Babe Ruth pointed to the centerfield bleachers and he HIT IT.

What was the question again?

The tenth commandment is Do Not Steal.
