I asked some questions that matter of Ben Cass! But first, the book: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07FKCR9BF
And some links:
Let’s get to the questions!
Welcome, Ben! In your opinion, what is the best Disney animated movie?
That’s a tough one. I’ve greatly enjoyed a lot of them. But, if I had to choose, I’m sticking with “Aladdin”.
There is something magical about that one! What is your favorite word?
That’s easy. “Wombat”. I love saying it. I say it all the time at work. Drives my students crazy!
That sounds like fun! What superpower would you like to have for a day?
I’ve been asked this before, and people always assume that I’m going to give a Superman-related answer, in large part because I have an alleged “obsession” with Superman. Just because my office has, like, 7 Superman posters, and a few Superman drawings, and a Superman cape a former student made for me in sewing class, and two other Superman capes….oops, got off track. Honestly, though…I’d want the Green Lanterns’ power ring. The ability to make constructs out of light, just based on willpower? Yes, please. Actually, I’d also take the Star Sapphires’ rings, since it’s based on love. Same idea, different color.
That doesn’t sound like an obsession at all…What is one of your favorite quotes?
The math department at college, where I spent a LOT of hours as a math major, had a banner hanging in the hallway that I saw on my first visit there, way back in 1994, and it’s stuck with me ever since. “What is right is not always popular; what is popular is not always right.”
I can agree with that! Are you usually early, late, or on time?
Being on-time is being late. I like to be somewhere at least 30 minutes early. I don’t have to be at work until 7:45, but I get there around 7:15. At a previous school, I didn’t have to report until 7:05, but I usually arrived by 6:15, in part because I had students who’d come in for help at 6:30. I can’t STAND being late to anything!
Good for you! What animal-person are you?
I’m a giraffe person. I’ve loved them since I was a kid. As somebody who’s slightly taller than the average human (I’m 6’5”), I relate to giraffes. I’ve gotten to feed and pet them before, and it was just the most amazing experience!
An elegant, beautiful animal! Is the glass half-empty or half-full?
I had somebody at work ask me this one time, trying to prove that I’m a pessimist. I replied, “Are you drinking or pouring? If you were just drinking from the glass, that is an act of emptying. However, if you were just pouring, that is an act of filling. I need to know which you were doing before I can answer your question accurately.” (I, by the way, am a realist. I can’t stand pessimists, and I can’t stand optimists. Hope for the best, plan for the worst, expect something in between!)
That is a perfect answer! Thank you, Ben, for taking my important challenge! Support Ben by liking his social media, reading, and reviewing! Wombat!! We’ll be here next Friday for more important questions!
Happy reading! 🙂
