Clarkie Corner with Leona Abrahamian

If you could choose to stay a certain age forever, what age would it be?

I’d wanna be five. You go to kindergarten, all you do is eat and sleep and play. There are no responsibilities, whatsoever! It’s like, the biggest question in life at that point would be: “chocolate milk or apple juice?” The struggles back then were minimal.

If you could witness any event past, present or future, what would it be?

Any event? Haha, well I’d like to witness a Foster the People concert because I’m literally in love with those guys. I missed them at the Gibson Amphitheatre last year and I’m still trying to get over it. If I were to go and see them live, ugh, it would literally be the highlight of my teenage career, honestly.

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

I’d love to learn how to ballroom dance. It’s so elegant and classy and such an old, beautiful art. It would be amazing to be able to dance like that. Like, sometimes I’ll watch videos of those dancers or I’ll see them on TV and they just look so elegant, sophisticated. And the dresses they wear are so pretty. I wish I could one day muster up the courage to go and take a class or something.

If you were immortal for a day, what would you do?

I’d do a bunch of things. I would jump into the Niagara Falls. I’d go skydiving without an instructor or I’d go deep sea diving, except I wouldn’t have an oxygen tank.

If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet?

Dude, Aretha Franklin, easily. She is so sassy. And to top off the sassiness she has a killer set of lungs on her. I’d just want to see her outlook on life. Someone that talented has to know a bit or two about the world, right?

If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would do?

Probably give a huge chunk of it to charity and stow the rest away for college, since it’s not gonna pay for itself. It’s important to give some or most of what you have to those who don’t get it quite so easy. Plus, it’s not like I worked really hard to win the lottery; it just kind of happened.
