Questions By Casper #34
August 23, 2020
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…
Do you have a television in your bedroom?
It’s on my dresser, but not plugged up and I don’t think I’ve even ever turned it on since moving it into my bedroom. It just collects dust.
Do you tease people?
Some people, yes. I probably shouldn’t, but they’re too easy to resist the temptation.
How many alcoholic drinks do you consume a week?
Most weeks, none at all, but on the weeks I have some time off, that’s subject to change if I have someone to drink with. I’m off this upcoming weekend. Any volunteers?
Do you whistle or hum while you work?
Do I look like one of the freakin’ seven dwarfs to you? I mumble, sneer, and every so often, sing a verse or two when no one is looking.
Did you ever have a chemistry set growing up?
I actually did. I had no idea what I was doing, but my cousin David and I did destroy some ant-hills with our own version of Agent Orange.
Do you believe in dragons?
Of course, I do. Haven’t you ever listened to the song Puff the Magic Dragon? So long as we believe, dragons will live forever. They’re just not sociable or easily seen.
Have you ever been in “Hot Pursuit”?
I remember an incident where Bryan and I were chasing a truck of stupid idiots that were trying to start shit with my bro-sun. Chasing them and waving guns. Roscoe P. Coltrane would have been so proud.
What is the worst alarm clock you’ve ever had?
Having a ten-pound cat jump on your stomach while you’re asleep to wake you up at 4:00 in the morning. That’s a hell of an alarm clock to wake up too. I miss Stinky. Damn cat! *sighs*
What is the worst ring tone you’ve ever heard?
I’ve heard some cool ones like sirens, Hulk Hogan cutting a promo, different songs, etc. But the worst one? A guy one time had the phone sound like a baby crying when his wife called. That was creepy.
What is the best thing you’ve ever gotten for free?
Let me tell you about life. Nothing’s Free. Nothing!
Who thinks we should rename America “Trumpica”?
In reality, no, but to watch the heads explode and left freak out, it would be fun to just bring it up and make the suggestion.
What’s the corniest pick-up line that’s ever worked to pick someone up?
What is the corniest pick-up line that’s ever worked on you?
Want to go drink some beer?
What’s your sign?
These days, it’s probably “Don’t Feed The Bears”.
What’s your point?
I don’t get it.
Have you ever met someone with a peg leg?
No, but give me a couple of years. Actually, I have seen some people with artificial legs and feet. A peg leg is just too pirate for most people.
Do you have lazy days?
Every day is a lazy day if you’re lucky.
Have you ever rebuilt a carburetor?
No, I don’t do mechanical stuff. I’d rather just do the mechanics.
Chocolate covered strawberries or chocolate-covered cherries?
I like cherries/
Do you have a favorite place to get a shake?
Right now, it would be the Cook-Out.
Do you have a favorite shake flavor?
Vanilla or Orange.
Have you ever made your own clothing?
I made a work apron out of denim for my Home Economics class in high school. And a few shirts for my sisters Barbie and Ken.
Have you ever worn clothing made by hand?
Not that I can recall, but I probably have.
Have you ever cut your own hair?
I did. Not a good idea. Now I will trim around the ears as to not look so shaggy, but I save the major cuts for the barbershop.
Have you ever cut someone’s hair?
Just straightening up the back with clippers, yes.
Have you ever cried over spilled milk?
No, but I have freaked out over spilled cereal, dropped medicine bottles, and other assorted messes.
What was the dumbest thing you’ve ever gotten upset over?
The phone ringing, being spoken to, the cat meowing, etc. I don’t stress much, but when I do, it’s usually over something dumb and the results are epic.
And there you go. My thanks for reading and to Casper for the questions. You rock dude! Any comments, thoughts, or questions, drop me a line, and let’s chat. I’ll see you on the flip side. Take care.
