Here is something special in the Mondayitis lineup. I was fortunate enough to be able to speak to Boxer from Animal Farm, while he couldn’t read he was happy to answer the questions for me to transcribe.
What do you read?
I’m not good at reading so I only read the letters A, B, C and D. I’m working on the rest of them.
Why do you read?
Because I’m stubborn and I don’t like failure. My motto is “I will work harder” and I use that motto in everything I do, including reading.
Do you read for work or for pleasure and is there any difference between the two?
I read because I embody my motto.
Do you read to your kids or to someone else’s kids?
Kids are baby goats and I’m sure they can read better than me. I’m not going to read to them.
Can you do the Safety Dance while reading?
I always worry about safety and am constantly watching to be sure no-one else is hurt, I can only read when I’m reading.
Are you a rabid Discworld/Twilight/Harry Potter fan and would you attend a flash mob dressed as your favourite character?
No, dressing up is for those with time and vanity, I have neither. I must move some rocks to help build the windmill.
Thank you to Boxer from Animal Farm by George Orwell. He was the most steadfast character and loved Animal Farm to the end.
