Over in the world of Twitter, I found a man that likes to ask questions. And I do mean a lot of them. His name is Tyler “The Ghost” Casper and he’s at @tyler_casper. A good guy that you should go check out. Now, as I was saying, he likes to ask questions. I like to answer them and it provides content for the site. So here we are. Every few days, I go down his feed and copy the inquiries he’s asked. And then it’s here for the answers. It’s insightful, thought-provoking, and hopefully entertaining for you, the reader, as well. So let’s can the chit chat and let’s do this. Are you ready? And away we go…

When was the last time you put your shirt on backward?

I think it was yesterday. Maybe it was the day before, but it was definitely recent. I miss the days when there were tags in the back of the neck to look at first. Now there’s just writing on the shirt itself and when you’re still half asleep, that just doesn’t cut it.

When was the last time you got a great night’s sleep?

Last night surprisingly. I went to bed slightly after midnight and got up at 7, but I didn’t wake up during the night and my dreams were pleasant for a change.

What is the craziest date you’ve ever been on?

I’m not sure if I’d count it as a date, but a guy I was seeing off and on and I went out to lunch (Chinese) and then spent the afternoon going to old cemeteries and looking at the old tombstones, talking about the people and trying to see who could find the oldest one. It was pretty cool.

What is the craziest dare you have ever completed?

One that I can actually talk about in public and not too explicit? I can’t think of anything off the top of my head. There was this one incident that involved a neighbor and his brother and I can’t get into that one too much, but needless to say, I blew their freakin’ minds.

What is the funniest sounding word you know?

Kumquat!

What is the longest word you know?

What’s that word from that movie with Mary Poppins? Supercalifragislisticespeallidocious? Yes, I know I spelled that wrong. I do good to just pronounce it.  And now that song will be in my head for the rest of the day.  Yours too. You’re welcome.

Do you hold grudges?

I still don’t go to Wendy’s after rude service and being short-changed a quarter by the cashier almost seven years ago. What do you think?

What is the most unsettling fact you know?

That some people think that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris would make a good President and Vice President for our country. That is just plain stupidity at it’s worst.

If you were an egg, how would you be prepared?

Absolutely scrambled.

What is your favorite breakfast duo?

Pancakes and sausage. Can’t beat it.

Are you wearing a mask everywhere you go?

Believe me, every time I’m around people, what they see is a mask. The real me remains hidden from the world, a face very few ever get to actually see.

Do you live every day like you were dying?

Not really. I do what I have to do to make it and get by another day. No time for worrying about the future or speculation. It’s all just survive and make it to tomorrow. Wash, rinse, repeat!

If you knew you were going to die tomorrow, what would you do today?

Delete my browser history, throw away my porn, and tell a few special people that I love them.

If pride comes before the fall, what comes after?

Getting back up and moving on.

When was the last time you went to church?

I go to church every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Of course, that’s for the Food Bank that I volunteer at and work for. As for services, it’s been a while. The last Pastor I liked and respected a great deal retired and the one that followed was less than impressive. I don’t care much for organized religion anyhow. I believe and have faith, but a preacher can only give you his perspective. I prefer to open my eyes and learn for myself.

What religious denomination do you belong to?

Technically, I think we were Methodist, but I don’t do a particular denomination. I believe. That’s what matters.  Not the label attached.

Are you living a life you can be proud of?

I’m not where I want to be, but I’m not ashamed of anything I do, so I guess that would be a yes.

Do you start each day with prayer?

In my own way, I would say yes.

Are you a glass-half-empty kind of person?

Some days, it’s half-empty and other days, it’s half-full. And some days, I can’t even find the damn glass and drink from the bottle.

Do you believe in Angels?

Entities from Heaven that protect us, warn us, and watch over us? I can go with that.

Do you believe in life after death?

I hope so because I’d hate to think that this is all there is. what we do in our life here on earth. There has to be more.

Are you a hunter?

Every morning when I’m looking for my glasses, keys, phone, and a fresh Dew.

Are you a fisher?

I haven’t been fishing in a long time. I just go to enjoy the atmosphere and free some worms.

What is your favorite sermon?

Nothing specific comes to mind, but I’ve heard some good ones over the years. My brain just isn’t working this morning.

What is your favorite Bible verse?

John 14:27 – Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

Do you talk differently when you’re groggy?

I talk sleepily and kind of out there, so no, it’s not any different than my usual manner of speaking.

What is the longest game of monopoly you’ve ever played?

My cousins, Clint and Cliff, and I had one that lasted three days one summer up in Ohio. I think I won, but we may have just said screw it and quit playing.

What is the first thought that runs through your head when you wake up?

“I’m still alive! Damn, my feet hurt. I need to pee!”
