In this episode co-hosts Kristina Stykos and Emily Howe discuss metal preferences, being poisoned by dentistry, why Kristina can’t smile anymore, the longest needle, the dilemma of the Carolines, another Todd-driven sponsorship, a local restaurant’s gussied-up woodchuck, the dangers of using flimsy jacks to change a tire, springtime road conditions that discourage business, coconut oil hair-doing, what’s inside a dreadlock, an idea about vegetarian leather pants, raising a nice cow but not getting too close, new reasons to commune with nature, remembering the kindergarten circus (again), the infamous panty hose elephant, another obscure pop culture reference from the ‘80s, collecting hand-me-downs, a repeated disappointment for the man with the name which is a fruit, blocking nasty commenters & “ne’er-do-wells”, getting in a snit about de-friending and re-friending, thumb-winging on Instagram, deconstructing a Creemee selfie, the travels of a lone wasp, half-assing birthdays as your kids age, a new source for cactus, the effrontery of selling moss, looking for a baseball cap at Walmart, disorientation at the food coop, whether or not to leave your cart when you’re shopping, getting down on vegetables, a positive review for oat groats, a sign from the gods a la Fruit Loops, Emily’s incredibly embarrassing faux pas, a warning about shaving cream and egg dye, questioning animal cremation - and so much more!
