Sophomore from Sierra Vista looks for classes and has a rebellious belly-button piercing

Wildcat: Hi. My name is Nathan and you're on the spot. You are . . .

Goggin: I'm Courtney.

Wildcat: You are Courtney.

Goggin: Goggin.

Wildcat: Goggin. So you know what "On the Spot" means?

Goggin: No.

Wildcat: It means this is the Arizona Daily Wildcat

Goggin: I'm trying to get hired there, actually.

Wildcat: Really?

Goggin: Yeah.

Wildcat: Well, this is a candid interview, which means you can't move from that spot because then you'd be off the spot and this is called "On the Spot."

Wildcat: So what are you doing here?

Goggin: Right now just figuring out where my classes are at.

Wildcat: Where are you from?

Goggin: I am from Sierra Vista.

Wildcat: That's too bad for you.

Goggin: Why?

Wildcat: 'Cause. I noticed you had a belly ring. I just talked to a guy who had a piercing in his eyebrow, and I thought it'd be cool if he shaved his whole eyebrow and made just a whole eyebrow of piercings. Do you have piercings anywhere else?

Goggin: In my ears.

Wildcat: Is your belly button in pain at all?

Goggin: No.

Wildcat: Do you get a lot of

compliments?

Goggin: You know, it's normally covered up.

Wildcat: So why did you get it?

Goggin: You're going to laugh at this story. I spent my freshman year of college at home. And I got in a fight with my mother one night and one of the rules was the only piercings we were allowed to have were in our ear, so I went and pierced my belly button.

Wildcat: Oh man. So I've been talking to you for, like, a good 40 seconds now and you haven't commented on my snazzy Velcro shoes. What gives?

Goggin: (Looking down) Velcro shoes? I am not observant. They are definitely snazzy. Where did you buy them at?

Wildcat: Kmart.
