Full Name: Mrs. Ida Kay Witherspoon

You are a legend in Hickeberry County, also well-known across the state for your record-winning pies and quilts. You brag about your accomplishments and are quite talkative. Your husband is the town’s most successful farmer, Jake Witherspoon. You love to tell people what you think they should do, and you constantly use the phrase, “As I always say..” followed by a well-known cliché such as “What goes around, comes around,” and any others you can think of. When people are talking around you, eavesdrop on them. Claim to be hard-of-hearing in one ear, but switch ears throughout the night, especially when it isn’t particularly flattering! You’re also superstitious, especially susceptible to the fortune teller’s information.
Wear your hair long and straight or back in a braided bun, curlers, kercheif or otherwise older ‘do. Do not wear much make-up unless it is to make yourself look older. Wear a flour-stained apron over a conservative dress with pearls, and/or a brooch on your blouse/dress. Bring an empty flask or other alcoholic beverage bottle filled with water, and do not take it out until instructed during the evening.
