The Curse of the Monkey's Paw!
An Interview with the Whites
Interviewing the Whites!
Q: What was your third wish?
Mr.W: My third wish was to be at peace.
Q: What did you think of the person from Ma and Meggins?
Mr.W: My first impression was that he was very on edge and lying.
Q: Why didn’t you heed Sergeant Major Morris’s warnings and allow him to burn the paw?
Mr.W: I am a fool for not, but I don’t have an excuse besides greed.
Q: What if herbert was never dead?
Mr.W: I wouldn’t know what to do.
MRS.W: I would want to know who died in the machine.
Q: Mr. White, Would you still like to visit India after your experience with the Monkey’s Paw?
Mr.W: I would not. I would keep a very large distance between us, never messing with that devilish place again.
Q: Have you thought that maybe, just maybe, this whole experience was just a dream, and you never had a child in the first place, or perhaps you had a child, but it died in infancy?
Mr.W: If this a dream, I hope I wake up soon.
MRS. W: If it was a dream I would want to know where the dream came from and why we were all having the same dream.
Q: What are your opinions on monkeys in the pet trade?
Mr.W: I love monkey’s but trading them is very unnecessary.
Q: What are your opinions on the fakirs in India messing with people’s fates with objects such as the monkey’s paw?
Mr.W: I think that is their own fault if they use the monkey’s paw, they were most likely warn. MRS.W: I think they are doing it to show how good you actually have things until something bad happens.
Q: Are you still friends with Sergeant Major Morris?
Mr.W: Yes, he has done wrong as well and knows a part of what we’ve been through.
Q: Have you seen the servant from Maw and Meggins, or do you think he was a supernatural being?
Mr.W: I believe he was sent from the devil of the monkey’s paw, in Jesus name Amen!
Q: Have you visited Herbert’s grave to see if he actually rose from the dead? Was the ground disturbed at all?
Mr.W: I don’t want to see my son in the ground, If he was there, because that’s not I want to remember him by, his lifeless body, I remember him for his life.
Q: Mr. White, do you have any regrets pertaining to your second wish?
Mr.W: I do regret it. I regret it all.
Q: Have you thought that you both are potentially schizophrenic?
Mr.W: I feel that if we were, we would be in an asylum already.
Q: Did this teach you anything about contentment?
Mr.W: It does, because it’s not what I needed, it’s what I wanted and look at how much it cost me.
