Tossing Salt Presents:
Questions By Casper #54
November 1, 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 your favorite book of drinks?
I guess it would be “An Idiot’s Guide To Bartending”. I don’t know if it’s a real book, but it should be.
What is your favorite book of nonfiction?
A book of facts, truth, and reality? I guess I’ll go with Joan Rivers’ “Enter Talking”. The follow-ups are great too.
What is your favorite book of food?
I used to have an International cookbook that listed recipes from all over the world around here. I should try to find it. Some of the recipes are amazing.
What is your favorite book of answers?
A book called “Imponderables” about why things are as they are. Another great read.
You’re stranded on a small island alone, the only things you have are the things found in your junk drawer… How long will you survive?
I’d be dead before the first night had ended.
What is your favorite book of questions?
I have a book of movie trivia that I found at a yard sale many, many years ago. Questions about movies and TV going back to the ’30s. I need to try and find it again.
What is your favorite book of history?
Richard Nixon’s autobiography is very interesting.
What is your favorite book of science?
Does science-fiction count? I’ve got this book of easy science experiments. It’s from when I was a kid so it’s probably forty years old at least. It’s here somewhere in the house, probably with the cookbook and my movie trivia book. I need to find these things.
What is your favorite book of fiction?
Anne Rice’s “Interview With A Vampire” and most of the follow-ups as well.
What do you think the most romantic dinner is?
Cold pizza and cold beer by a fireplace while listening to old-time country music.
Where do you think the most romantic place to eat dinner would be?
By the fireplace. I already told you that.
What movie terrified you as a kid?
The sound Of Music. Mary Poppins is EVIL!
Do you have a junk drawer?
Of course we do. Who doesn’t?
What is the most addicting site on the internet?
Twitter, especially around now with all the election stuff going on. Pornhub is pretty awesome as well.
Would you ever want to live on the space station?
Nah, I don’t think so. I’d prefer to stay on earth, thank you.
How many brooms do you own?
I think we have maybe four if you include the one in the storage building that Ma uses to sweep the carport.
Have you ever been in a drag race?
A bunch of guys in dresses, lined up at the track. Take your mark. Ready. Set. Go! I think I’ll pass on that one. Never done it and probably never will.
What is your favorite kind of popcorn?
Cooked, with just a touch of salt and not too much better. Where my Orville Redenbocker at?
What is your favorite type of dance?
Just shaking my booty to the sounds of the music. It ain’t pretty, but it’s me.
Have you ever taken dance lessons?
I haven’t, but we did learn to square dance in school when I was in third grade. Also, my Ma took disco lessons in the late ’70s and would make me practice with her. I think that constitutes child abuse… lol.
Have you ever been in a play?
Yeah, when I was in second grade. I was a tree.
Have you ever sung in a choir?
Many times. Believe it or not, before we moved to Maxton, I was actually quite the singer as a child. My seventh-grade music teacher liked my voice and Mrs. Nolstad had me singing in the school choir, even doing solos from time to time. Then we moved from Raleigh to Maxton and after that, with the exception of several late-night drunken car rides and a karaoke night or two, I never sang publicly again. Too bad. I might have been a star in the making.
Have you ever been so tired that you’ve fallen asleep on the toilet?
Many times. I can sleep anywhere if I’m tired enough.
How good is your short term memory?
Do you wear shorts in the winter?
I wear shorts in the house and to sleep all year round. I don’t wear them in public much anymore due to my ugly legs and messed up feet & Frankenstein boots.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions are welcome. Thank you Casper. Have a great one and take care of yourself. Stay safe and I’ll see you on the flip side.
