Interview with Casper

It took a lot of persuasion, but Casper has finally consented to an interview. So here are the questions I put to him.

JN: What was your life like growing up?
C: Before I became a guardian angel, I lived in a village in what is now called Germany. Life was hard. We faced famine, bitterly cold winters and disease. It was almost a relief to go off to war.

JN: How would you describe your personality?
C: Quite laid back for a former warrior. Someone who’s been an angel for two thousand years gets in touch with their inner Zen.

JN: Do you have a motto or code you live by?
C: Do my job and do it well. My current job is caring for Allegra Fairweather. It’s full time work that keeps me on my toes.

JN: What one thing would you take to a deserted island?
C: Allegra.

JN: Where would you go on vacation?
C: To Allegra’s beachside house in Hawaii.

JN: What is your most distinguishing characteristic?
C: My golden wings.

JN: What is your major skill or talent?
C: Flying, appearing and disappearing at will.

JN: If you had to pick another career, what would it be?
C: I can’t think of anything I’d rather do than work with Allegra.

JN: Who are your closest friends?
C: My closest friends live on Cloud 9, but I can’t mention their names.

JN: What’s your favorite color?
C: Sky-blue.

JN: Favorite food?
C: Pit-roasted boar.

JN: Who do you love?
C: Do I really have to answer that? You know who she is.

JN: What are your future plans?
C: To spend more time with the love of my afterlife.

JN: Thank you, Casper. It’s been a real pleasure. I wish I was Allegra (sigh!).
