As I mentioned this morning, I’ve done a little Q&A with the kid. There are 25 questions – some normal ones, some quirky ones. I’ve written down his answers exactly as he said them. He gave each one a lot of consideration. Boy, do I mean a lot. I think we can all agree they show just how ‘special’ this kid actually is.
*Disclaimer – he really didn’t wanna do this to start with because he was at a ‘crucial stage with his Minecraft build’ as he put it, but a little blag from yours truly that may or may not have involved winning a trip to Disneyland soon got him motivated*
