The Michigan Daily: Hi, I’m calling from The Michigan Daily and you’ve been selected to do this week’s Random Student Interview. Are you up for it?
TMD: OK, what’s your first name?
TMD: First question: How was your weekend?
R: It was good.
TMD: What did you do for the fall study break?
R: I went home.
TMD: Where’s home?
TMD: What did you do there?
R: I went to my high school’s homecoming game.
TMD: Fair enough. Would you ever pose nude?
TMD: Well, say you did. What would you want the name of the statue to be called?
R: “The Girl.”
TMD: “The Girl.” Who would you want to sculpt it?
R: Picasso because nobody would be able to tell it was me.
TMD: What do you think about Ludacris coming to town?
R: Very exciting.
TMD: Are you going?
R: I want to.
TMD: Well, tickets are rapidly decreasing in availability. Do you have hos in different area codes?
R: Hahaha, no I don’t.
TMD: Do you have hos in any area code?
R: Haha, no.
TMD: You don’t have any hos? What do you think he means by hos? Do you think he means like gardening tools?
R: Girls he can mess around with.
TMD: What’s your fantasy? Going with the Ludacris theme –
R: Haha, the Ludacris theme. Um – oh, he has this one line in one of his songs – he has a necklace as big as a midget around his neck or something. That would be cool.
TMD: So you’d want a midget necklace around your neck?
TMD: OK, what do you think he means by no. one spot?
R: Probably something gross and sexual.
TMD: What about just like his status in society?
R: It could be, but I doubt it. His songs aren’t really political. They’re more –
TMD: They’re more about getting people to move out of the way in traffic.
R: Haha, yeah.
TMD: If there was a musical about your life, what would you want the big showstopping number to be called?
R: “Esther: The Musical.”
TMD: “Esther: The Musical?” With all the leg kicks and stuff?
R: Yeah, because everyone would know what it’s about.
TMD: Cool. What would the first line be?
R: Um – “Esther, Esther, she’s so cool.”
TMD: And then “da da da da da da,” right?
TMD: Now would there be a love interest in this musical?
R: There would be many, but she wouldn’t go for any of them.
TMD: Oh, would they be from different parts of the country? How about that?
R: Sure, why not?
TMD: Then you can say you had hos in different area codes.
R: That’s true!
TMD: It can be like a Rogers & Hammerstein musical. Do you have any embarrassing posters on the wall when you were younger?
R: Not really.
TMD: What about here at school? Who do you have on your wall?
TMD: Good choice. Anybody else?
R: No. My roommate does.
TMD: Who does she have?
R: She has a “Sex and the City” poster and Coldplay.
TMD: “Sex and the City?” Come on.
R: I like “Sex and the City!”
TMD: What’s so good about it?
R: It’s funny to watch. They talk about things that people don’t talk about.
TMD: And they have hos in different area codes, too, don’t they?
R: Oh, yes, they do.
TMD: I’m trying to get my roommates to go as the Seven Dwarves for Halloween. Do you think that’s a good costume?
R: Well, maybe if you have six other people.
TMD: Oh, I do. What dwarf do you think I would be good as?
R: I don’t know – Goofy?
TMD: Goofy? I would be Goofy?
R: If there is such a dwarf.
TMD: Oh, there is not a dwarf named Goofy. Goofy is the name of this dog on Mickey Mouse.
R: Happy. You would be Happy.
TMD: That would work. Do you think we should have a Snow White?
R: It would be funny if you dressed a guy like Snow White.
TMD: Yeah, but every time we went to somebody’s house, someone would collapse and we’d have to run off and find a prince or something.
R: Haha, I guess. You could have a doll. It might be easier.
TMD: So I would be Happy, and I would be lugging around a doll dressed like Snow White. That’s not odd at all.
R: It’s Halloween. You can do whatever you want.
TMD: That’s true. All right, thanks for doing this. Look for it in the magazine.
