What is the funniest thing that has happened to you recently?
I am a bit tiny and keep getting asked for ID everywhere I go. The most embarrassing moment was in Disneyland, during the parade. I was sitting next to a kid with a DSLR camera like mine and a silent paparazzi war started between us. The Alice in wonderland float stopped in front of me and the characters started picking up children from the crowd, putting little card costumes on them and forcing them to dance. They picked up my nemesis and I felt so smug laughing at his little face. Sadly, the joke was on me because I got dragged in as well. There I was, surrounded by nine year olds, dancing with teapots.
