Angela: Joey, where did your career start?

 

Joey: Mom tells the story that I was in preschool at a church picnic when some older kids were having a water fight. She says I wanted to get involved but didn't know how, so she gave me a cup of water to dump on my dad. He saw me coming and offered me a dollar to dump the same cup on Mom. Mom got wet, and I got paid. I fell asleep that night holding onto my dollar, and the next morning I heard Mom say to Dad, "Look what you created. He's going to become a water fight professional." Sounded like a good idea to me!

 

Angela: Have you had any business partners?

 

Joey: There's this girl named Isabelle that lives next door. She's not like most girls. She's tough, and she doesn't cry when I shoot her off a snowmobile with my snowball launcher. We work together sometimes. When she's not being too bossy.

 

Angela: What do you spend your money on?

 

Joey: In the summer it's all about ice cream. Though sometimes my job is so fun that I don't even take the money people offer to pay me. You know, like if they want me to throw water balloons at Isabelle. In The Snowball Fight Professional, I'm trying to make enough money to buy Grandma a really nice Christmas gift so she'll think I'm responsible enough to take home one of her puppies. Unfortunately, my cousin Winston is trying to do the same thing with his snow shoveling business, and for some reason Isabelle is on his side.

 

Angela: Do you have anybody helping you out since Isabelle turned on you?

 

Joey: Yeah, actually my little sister's on my side for the first time ever. Usually I consider her weirditating (weird and irritating), but she really wants the puppy too. Plus, Winston is also being a punk to her.

 

Angela: Any advice you want to offer kids out there who might want to try starting a business like yours?

 

Joey: Sure. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good snowball fight!
