What is a good name for a fish? Cami and Collin answer this
important question. The Peaches tells us the name of a kid she met
at daycare who should grow up to be a supervillain. Emmi sings
a song she learned in Sunday School. Lyrically, it needs work but
we think it's adorable anyway.
Then I drive to Lafayette to meet with one of our favorite
people, Al Serhal! I'm looking forward to a spirited conversation.
It'll be great!
Then I drive home after my conversation with Al Serhal which
he won't let me record. So I gripe about what a loser he is. Then I
decide to stop in and visit grandma Turbo (another favorite on the
podcast). THIS is also a disappointment! It's a crushing
series of failures but I soldier through admirably.
Peaches and I discuss ADHD for a few minutes. But I can't
focus long enough to have any answers. I try to capture Collin
sleeping but I'm too late. He awakes! I record a few unhappy groans
but no good snores. I come up with a brilliant idea for 'part time
children'. I'm not sure how to implement it though since I'm
pretty sure it's illegal.
I take some pot pies out of the microwave and disaster
strikes. A few moments of reflective thought brings revelations
about the conduct at Mexican Restaurants. Forks are the chosen
instrument for eating pot pies. Over some piping hot pot pies,
Peaches and I discuss something that I told her not to talk about
until we started the podcast. The millennials think they can
have careers that are just about themselves. Famous is an
occupation now! (It's also Cami's birthday.)
True to form, we criticize things we don't fully understand
and then turn around and contradict our criticisms when Peaches
brings up 'The Brick Show'. Then, I say one of the most
ironic things I've ever said.
We talk about doing right when nobody notices. Maybe heroes
are laying underneath toilets and we mostly don't ever see
"A Day In The Life of John Branyan" would be a dreadful
program. Positively dreadful...
