Today’s economy, at least in the eyes of one person, is “medium.”

Almost everyone from President Obama himself to a frozen TV dinner chef has participated in a Reddit AMA—so, why not a 4-year-old? On Dec. 17, a Reddit mother decided that her preschool-aged daughter would be a prime candidate for the subreddit’s latest round of questioning.

I’m a four year old AMAA,” the throwaway account 4yearold wrote, with mom relaying reddit’s questions to the girl (who says she doesn’t “really know how to read”) and posting the answers.

“I’ll read her the questions and type her answers exactly as given. No coaching or translating. I reserve the right to ignore any questions that I feel are inappropriate,” the mother wrote in the thread.

She provided a video as proof of the subreddit’s latest—and likely littlest—persona.

Redditors responded to the innocence-filled session with a barrage of questions on topics ranging from the child’s favorite candy (“Gum. It’s sticky AND chewing”) to her views on the recession (“Good, kinda good. What’s a recession?”). Through the questions, redditors learned that the young girl was a fan of aliens, the childrens’ show Dragon Tales, and shopping malls.

Finally someone who will appreciate the question! Would you rather pet 100 duck sized horses or 1 horse sized duck? (Frood4)

100 duck sized horses, because that wouldn’t be too heavy to hug.

In your opinion, what is the most amazing thing in the world? (the_mollusque)

Spending time with Daddy.

If you could be anywhere in the world with anyone you wanted, where would you be and who would you want to be with? Imaginary people and places count too! (linziboo)

California with Grandma, Daddy, Mommy, sissy, and the elf.

If you were a hot dog, would you eat yourself? (buchec18)

No. Like how many dogs would eat themselves if they were hot?

Do you like music? What’s your favorite? (chrlsdmrs)

Um, sometimes. Do you know the one that Dad likes to sing a lot? Techno.

Do you want to become a grown up or would you rather stay at 4 years old for now? (LoneStar92)

I wanna be five and never grow up.
