while occupation Days in school could come round, my questionnaire could glance a bit anything like this:
favourite subject?  God
favourite hobby?  God
What do you need to be if you develop up?  God
(Okay, there has been a quick time whilst i used to be six years outdated while the reply to that final query used to be “an albino.”  i assumed albinism might make me glow within the dark.)
