This month’s installment of Kids Q&A features occupational therapist Jason Drusbacky MOT, OTR/L interviewed by Aiden, age 11. There are notes in parentheses for those who don’t speak sports or video game language.
Aiden: Why do you like the Browns?
Jason: Because I support all of the Cleveland teams.
Aiden: Where do you live?
Jason: I used to live in Port Clinton near Cedar Point and the islands. I just moved to the Cleveland area because I’m working with more and more kids at The Center for LifeSkills.
Aiden: Do you like your job?
Jason: I love my job. I love coming to work every day, it’s really rewarding to work with all of the kids.
Aiden: Who do you think is going to the Super Bowl?
Jason: I think the Patriots vs. Green Bay.
Aiden: I think the Panthers and the Patriots. Do you like hikes?
Jason: Like in the woods? Yeah, it’s a stress reliever for me to be outside and walking in the woods.
Aiden: I like backpacking in Pennsylvania. I went with my cousin, uncle and dad. It was hard because we hiked all day and slept in a tent. Have you ever slept in a tent?
Jason: No, just hiked during the day and went back to the hotel.
Aiden: Do you like FIFA 15? (a soccer simulation video game)
Jason: I have FIFA 16, I like to play it sometimes.
Aiden: How is it different from FIFA 15?
Jason: It just came out, it has women’s teams and better commentators.
Aiden: Do you like Madden NFL Mobile?
Jason: I’ve never played it before, but I played Madden 15 on PS3 (Play Station 3). I was the Browns.
Aiden: I’m the Falcons.
Jason: Why not the Browns?
Aiden: Because I like the Falcons colors. Do you like OBJ? (Odell Beckham Jr., wide receiver for the New York Giants)
Jason: He’s tons of fun to watch, he makes all these crazy catches.
Aiden: Did you see his one-handed catch?
Jason: I missed that one but he’s crazy good.
Aiden: Do you have a pet?
Jason: No, but I’d like to in the future. I used to have a dog named Casey, he was a Sheltie. He was a herding dog and he would run circles around us when we were playing soccer or football.
Aiden: Our dog used to be skinny but my aunt kept giving her bones.
Jason: What’s her name?
Aiden: Lola, she’s a mix between something. She’s a very odd dog. She wakes up, runs around and barks at our car, then falls asleep. But, she’s a fun dog. She always jumps at me because I’m going to a Browns game and I bought a giant bone and she chases me. What kind of food do you like?
Jason: I’m glad you asked that. Anything buffalo chicken: buffalo chicken pizza, buffalo wings, buffalo chicken dip, Mexican food, pizza, desserts.
Aiden: My uncle ate a pig’s eye once, he said it tastes like eggs. He also ate a cow’s tongue at Greenhouse Tavern. I like shrimp, meat pies, Mexican, hamburgers, pop (every once in a while), baguettes, Subway and pot stickers.
Aiden: Why do you always wear Under Armor, Adidas or Nike?
Jason: Because it’s comfortable, and warm.
