Current: What was your favorite part about senior carnival?
Machado:
When you guys snapped my kids back at the bungee run.

Current: Can you go into further detail about that?
Machado:
Yes, I can even show you a video.

Current: Did you stop by all the booths?
Machado:
We did the little kids gym, the cupcake walk, trike riding, and the bungee run in the big gym.

Current: Which booths would you say were the most kid friendly?
Machado:
The whole little kids gym.

Current: Was there any booths that stood out more than the others?
Machado:
Anyone who dressed up for the little kids: the Star Wars Plinko was cool, Harry Potter Ring Toss was cool, and the 70s cakewalk was great. Bungee run was good, but it wasn’t really for little kids.

(power shift)

Machado: I think the senior class needs to buy a jump house, and they need to bring back the dunk tank, and have teachers volunteer to be in it.

Current: Would you volunteer to do the dunk tank?
Machado: Yeah, I would do it. With the baseball throw, I would dress up.

Machado: I told Mrs. Whyte I would, but she said maintenance said we couldn’t do it for some reason.

(Interview put back into the hands of the Current)

Current: So, if we got a dunk tank you would dress up and be willing to go in it?
Machado:
For a good cause, not for a Saturday night thing.

Current: What would be a good cause?
Machado:
Like for a sports team.

Current: So if the baseball team came up to you and asked you to go in the dunk tank you would?
Machado:
Yeah, so I think you should get a bunch of teachers to volunteer for that, teachers, coaches, and parents.

(Machado takes control of the interview once again)

Machado: The school has a dunk tank.

Current: Interesting… I didn’t know that. What else do you think we could use that for?

Machado: We need to do it for a good cause like for Pep Club to travel to Southeast, Lund is the pep club president isn’t he?

Current: He’s the adviser.

Machado: Think about this guys, dunk tank is good money and you could have someone donate an old busted up car and they park it in the lot back there, and they have like bowling balls and bats and you could pay $10 and go smash the car.

Current: I like that idea, but it might attract an interesting crowd. Would you ever go out there and beat up a car?

Machado: Yeah, I think we should do it. What about Kiss the Fish? Were you here when we did that?

Current: No, but would you ever kiss the fish?

Machado: I did, I had to kiss the fish. So did Mr. Middag

Current: Would you do it again?
Machado:
Yeah, I would do it again

Machado: Did you know your teacher Mr. Lund had a book signing last weekend at Fish for Trish?

Current: I didn’t know he did. I would have gone if I had known; did you go?

Machado: I did not go but I wish I would’ve.

Machado: Did you know that Lund is a CrossFit animal? Put that in your bank of knowledge.

Current: (no response)

Machado: …

Current: …

(Machado goes into parent mode)

Machado: Where are you applying to school? Have you applied yet?

Current: No, we have not applied. We can’t make up our minds about which schools to apply to, and we’re still thinking about it.

Machado: Oh yeah that’s a great idea, you should keep sitting around just thinking about it…
