Okay. What is your favorite kind of movie?

Aubrey: Oh, literature. Literature was great . . .as long as I didn’t have to write too many papers.
Randall: Okay. What is your favorite podcast?
Aubrey: My Favorite Murder. The Omnibus Podcast is pretty good. Also, Dear Hank and John. Both very good podcasts.
Randall: What are those about?
Aubrey: Yeah, so, you know, one of them is a true crime podcast. The omnibus is more historical, and Dear Hank and John is a podcast where two brothers get together, they just kind of hang out. Um, they’re pretty famous on the Internet. The Vlog brothers; they were big on YouTube. Hank Green is big on TikTok right now, but they just kind of talk to each other and give dubious advice.

Randall: Great. What is your favorite time of day?
Aubrey: Umm . . . Bedtime.
Randall: Bedtime. What is your favorite? Relaxing activity?
Aubrey: Hmm. Video games are fun, but they’re not always relaxing. I love when you get your hair done and they, like, wash your head. That’s really relaxing.
Randall: All right, Aubrey. Well, thank you for sharing your favorite things in your life.
