Who The Flicka? is an ongoing series where we spotlight our amazing contributors and make them answer our questions.
This week’s featured contributor is Jennifer Oradat, author of posts like “She Doesn’t Pity Me. She Gets It” and “10 Things We Still Love As Adults (That We Probably Shouldn’t.”
Where are you from?
Birmingham, AL, born and raised.
What do you do?
I’m a freelance writer and editor, and the producer/director of Listen to Your Mother: Birmingham, which is coming to Alabama for the first time in 2016!
Do you have kids? How many? (tell us a little about them)
I have two kids, Maggie, 8, and Liam, 6. Maggie is my fearless athlete, and she honestly believes she can climb a real mountain with no training or gear, while in the third grade. Liam just lost his first tooth after going for years thinking he’d be the only person on the planet to reach adulthood with only baby teeth.
How do you juggle?
Usually with two hands, but I’m terrible at it.
Most embarrassing moment?
In the eighth grade I tried to impress a boy by using the word “tedious.” It did not work.
If you could trade places with anyone in the world for a day, who would it be?
Meh, no thanks. I’ve barely got this life under control; there’s no way I could handle somebody else’s problems for 24 hours.
What is your favorite four letter word?
I refuse to answer this on the grounds that my mother might read it.
