Q/A with Bailey Wise


Skylar Sharkey

Q: What’s your favorite holiday movie? Why?

A: “The Christmas Story.” Just because it’s a tradition to watch it on Christmas Eve with family. I like that I can relate to the main character because he looks like me, which is pretty cool. I haven’t shot myself in the eye, but I do have a BB gun.

Q: If you were to get a tattoo, what would it be and where would it be?

A: I wouldn’t get a tattoo just because I might regret it later. Even if it meant something to me, I still wouldn’t get it. I wouldn’t put anything on my body, I wouldn’t get a piercing, I wouldn’t get a tattoo.

Q: What has been your favorite school field trip?

A: The trip to DC. I really enjoyed it, it was one of my favorites because I enjoy History. I went on the trip through my old school, Woodstock. My favorite monument was the Lincoln monument and the Washington monument.

Q: What do you put on your pizza?

A: I like everything on my pizza: green peppers, onions sausage, mushroom. I’m even all right with pineapple pizza. There are some toppings that I haven’t tried so I can’t say that I don’t like them, but I haven’t tried anchovies on pizza. There’s certain combinations that I haven’t tried yet.

Q: Where is your happy place?

A: My happy place is my lake house in Green Lake Wisconsin. We go tubing, jet skiing, fishing. Escaping everything for a while makes me happy. I go with family, and I go up there alone sometimes.

Q: Who is your favorite teacher?

A: He’s gone now, but Mr. Monaco. He was quite the guy. He used to teach English, and was the department chair.

Q: What is your favorite season?

A: Spring. I like watching all of the flowers come up. I used to like playing in the mud. I was probably 10 playing in the mud.

Q: Who do you respect the most/look up to the most?

A: My grandfather. I admire his perseverance and his focus.

Q: Do you sleep with your socks on?

A: No! It’s just weird, why would you? I just don’t think you should sleep with socks on .

Q: What’s your greatest fear?

A: Maybe car collisions, at really high speeds. I’ve been in one. On my way to my lake house, someone T-boned me, along with my mother, my sister, and my dog. Everything was fine, but I had to get a new car.
