Questions By Casper #41
September 9, 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…

What is the worst thing to wake up to?

A tender kiss on the lips… especially if you’re in jail. Otherwise, a cat doing a running jump and waking you up by leaping on to your stomach.

Do you think dentists support candy manufacturing?

It wouldn’t surprise me at all.

Did you believe in the tooth fairy as a child?

I know he’s real. I saw the movie. He looks just like The Rock.

As a child, did you believe in the Easter Bunny?

Not so much. The only bunny who mattered was Bugs Bunny. Any other rabbit of any type was just a poser.

Did you believe in Santa Claus as a child?

I believe in Santa now, not as a real person, but as a spirit and entity that is represented by putting aside the bad feelings, selfishness, and hatred that usually run rampant for most of the year and for a short period of time replaces it with compassion, love, and goodwill for all.

Are you a control freak?

For myself and my own behavior, yes. For others, not quite so much.

Have you ever used a weighted blanket?

Not that I’m aware of.

Do you own any first editions of any books?

A couple of books, autobiographies, given to me by wrestlers to review. One was by Bruce Pobanz, aka The Hangman, called “Hang In There” is one that immediately comes to mind.

Do certain smells transport you to certain times in your life?


Where is the weirdest place you’ve ever seen someone keeping their phone?

In their bra, in their shoes, in the waistband of their pants, and most oddly of all, in their wig.

Would you rather have a sword or gun for the end of the world?

A sword. A gun is only as good as the number of bullets you have access to, but with a good sword, you can keep on stabbing forever.

Could you take another life if yours or someone else’s life depended on it?

If it’s the lives of me or the people I love or someone else, that bastard will not survive and is dead meat.

Would you rather be healthy or look healthy?

I’d love to be healthy. I’m tired of hurting all the time.

Have you ever been trained in MMA?

Nope, but I have taken a few bumps playing around in the wrestling ring, just playing around and my ex-roomie taught me a few things. All wrestling though and not MMA.

Do scorpions bite or sting?

They sting. That’s what the stinger on the tail is for.

Have you ever been stung by a hornet?


Have you ever been stung by a bee?


Is there anything better than dogs and babies?

How about cats and Mexican pool boys?

Have you ever been stung by a wasp?


Have you ever bombed your house for spiders?

Nope. If we ever have that many spiders in one house, I’m just leaving. Those spiders can have the damn house cause I sure as hell ain’t staying.

And there you go. My thanks for reading. Any comments, thoughts, or questions about this piece, or anything at all for that matter, just drop me a line and let’s chat. Until the next time, take care of yourself and I’ll see you on the flip side.
