Family Tree (did not have wife)
King Midas: That gold is not the most valuable thing and that I should appreciate my daughter more.
Reporter: When you first got your wish of the golden touch how did you feel?
King Midas: I felt like the richest man in the world! I had the power to turn something to gold!
Reporter: Why did you decide to turn your daughter's favorite flower (the rose) into gold?
King Midas: I thought that way the flower would never die and she would be happy.
Reporter: How did you feel when your father turned the rose into gold?
Daughter: Why would he do that?! I mean the reason I liked flowers was because there beauty and when you turn it to gold it is worthless!
Reporter: Why did you decide to grant king midas' wish?
Ghost: I thought it would help him realize that he was too greedy before.
Reporter: Did you think this was a good lesson to learn?
King Midas: Yes.
Reporter: Did you think this experience was good for your father?
Daughter: Yes, he learned to not be as greedy.
Reporter: Is it true that your old love was flowers?
King Midas: Yes but then I started to love gold because gold doesn't die but flowers do.
Reporter: Was it annoying when you had to eat?
King Midas: Yes! I am surprised i'm still alive!
Reporter: Was it scary at first when you saw the ghost?
King Midas: Yes! Imagine just looking at your gold coins and then some random man comes up and makes you able to turn something into solid gold.
Reporter: Do you forgive your father or are you still angry that he turned you to gold?
Daughter: It was an accident so I forgive him.
Reporter: Do you like the castle garden?
Daughter: Yes, but I liked it more when me and my dad both loved it.
Reporter: Why did you feel like you should invite the man to dinner (soon to be ghost)?
King Midas: I realized that without my gold I would be just like him. poor.
Reporter: Did you ever get scared of your fingers?
King Midas: Ya. I'm surprised that I didn't turn myself to gold!
Reporter: What is the one thing you love more than anything in the world?
King Midas: My daughter.
Reporter: Was it cool turning the whole castle to gold?
King Midas: Yes, But the color yellow isn't the most beautiful color if you know what I mean.
Reporter: Was it hard to get the "magical" water?
King Midas: It took some time but I managed.
Reporter: Were you happy to see your daughter turn from gold to her normal self?
King Midas: Yes. DEFINITELY.
Reporter: When did you realize that the golden tough was a curse?
King Midas: Once I turned my daughter to gold.
Reporter: Does gold still matter to you.
King Midas: I have it still but now I am not obsessed with it.
