A few notes, for posterity:
- Nora had no prior knowledge of the questions. This is the first and only take.
- To my knowledge, Nora has never eaten a marshmallow. A few hours after this was recorded, she asked me, “What’s a marshmallow?”
- I have no clue what she means by liking when “hippos get meat.”
- Those who know Nora will be shocked that Otto is not among her list of friends. I was a bit shocked, too. I believe it’s due to the fact that she just moved to a new classroom. Otto is a few weeks younger, so he has not yet joined her. When I asked for her friends at school, she was being quite literal and only listing kids in her class.
- She is not wearing pants or underwear. I had to throw a shirt on her for the interview.
- Nora loves watching herself. Everytime I make a video, she stops what she’s doing whatever it was I wanted to film and asks to see the video I have just started making. She wants me to be done with the questioning, because I told her before we started that she couldn’t see the video until I was done asking all the questions.
