Being Ericka Clay: Jessica & Tim

A girl and her fanny pack
How is this not a statue yet???

Welcome, folks!  Today, two brave readers have stepped up to the plate of being Ericka Clay.  Let’s all hold hands and support them on this journey as they don these extremely delicate ankles for the first time.

JESSICA SITA

1.Why do you think Ericka’s ankles are so beautifully delicate?  I personally think she was a ballerina in a past life. I mean, she’s a very tiny person and probably has this secret vice of smoking like a choo-choo train.  Because all writers smoke. This is truth. Also, she already admitted to making up some sort of zombie style ballet dancing with her daughter, Ava. This is her past life seeping through.

2.If you were Ericka Clay, how many mirrors would you look into every day?  Only one is needed. “Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all.” And she’s already killed that bitch Snow White so we all know who that mirror is going to answer with.

3.If you could change one thing about Ericka Clay, what would it be?  Be specific so she knows how hard to punch you.  I’d like to see her eat a hamburger with cheddar cheese and bacon. And none of that veggie burger crap. I’m not saying she is too skinny or anything (I mean, have you SEEN her in jorts?!), I’m saying the whole gluten-free, vegan thing makes me want to punch her (lovingly) in the mouth.

4.If your name was Ericka Clay, what would you do with your life?  (Besides be awesome, of course.)  Honestly, I can’t associate anything other than writing with the venerable name of Ericka Clay.  So I’d probably spend my days at coffee houses wearing scarves in sweltering heat with “I am writing a novel” tattooed across my forehead.

5.If you were going to make a statue in honor of Ericka Clay (which you should), what would you make it out of?  The souls of forgotten poems.

1. Why do you think Ericka’s ankles are so beautifully delicate? Just enough to carry a winnowy person. 

2.  If you were Ericka Clay, how many mirrors would you look into every day?Hmmmm…. all of them–twice.

3.  If you could change one thing about Ericka Clay, what would it be?  Be specific so she knows how hard to punch you.  Put the mouse down, back away from the keyboard & get out & get some more color dude.  Punch away.

4.  If your name was Ericka Clay, what would you do with your life?  (Besides be awesome, of course.)  Believe in myself more than I “should.”

5.  If you were going to make a statue in honor of Ericka Clay (which you should), what would you make it out of?  Texas caliche clay.  Tough, lasting & apropos.
