April Snow Day - ATS - 4.3.24

This is just a small taste of the show overall, the bits and bobs that I found interesting, funny, insightful and relevant. To hear everything that happened, check out the podcast of today's show. However, if you're looking for a quick read along with random self inserts and my personal thoughts, you've come to the right place.

Call in Point:

(This is the broadstroke canvas on which I base my call, obviously these notes are going to be longer and more detailed.)

It's hump day, it's April and it's snowing!!! Obviously, had the late great Prince not made an incredible song about snow in April, I'd be more upset but I'm letting my ire slide because I am in mourning. The Ailment Fairy, who sounds like a dying giraffe when she saunters into a room, made an appearance once again this morning and we were off to the Sarah McLachlan races for the (checks notes) 48th time this year. Our foray into Death's doorway came in the form of Angi asking Marris if he had noticed anything different about her this morning. Clearly not married, he failed the "I changed my hair, I bought a new dress, I lost 10 pounds" test when he did not correctly identify that Angi had contacts in. It turns out that Angi went to the eye doctor yesterday for a tune up because every 10 years (30, 40, 50, 90?) she has woken up with worse vision. Initially during the screening, Angi for a moment thought she was blind (or drunk) when the vision test machine was making things her eyes foggier than her memory. Turns out that the lenses were just dirty and once wiped down, revealed that she is still blind but not full on. Since she has a weird eye shape (adding that to the list,) she isn't a candidate for Lasik and so she instead was always wearing glasses (which you heard she has had numerous issues within the studio for years now.) It turns out though that contacts had only been alluding to her because her doctor is an idiot. This assessment was made by the eye doctor's brother, who is also an eye doctor (way to confuse things) and he said that she indeed could have contacts. Now I know you're all wondering where The Ailment Fairy slides in because this was mostly good news and well, the wait has paid off. During a 3D picture scan of her eyeballs, eye doctor number 2 asked Angi the last time she saw her regular doctor (uh oh.) It was six months ago and then doctor 2 inquired if the normal doctor had mentioned high blood pressure (get the shovels.) While it was a little high and blamed on her crazy person meds, eye 2 showed her some little specks on her eyeballs. These were blood pressure ... that's right, Angi has blood pressure eyes.... Now, they're not going to bulge out of her head and shoot across the room like Jesse Jackson but this is definitely a canary in a coal mine (Alexa: play The Police) warning. Eye Doc 2 (you're not crazy, I keep changing them cause I'm bored) said that when it goes back to normal range, the spots will dissipate. Marris, kind soul and voice of reason, stepped in to say that he wants to accompany Angi to the doctor so he can get a proper list of her ailments. Any time she hears something she overreacts and he can tell her if she's being insane (yes) when she does. So Angi narrowly escaped death once again but that damn Ailment Fairy will surely be back soon enough I bet.

Other Stuff from Today's Show:

Into the Daily Discussion Topic we slide due to Munice, Indiana which is apparently "Little Chicago." The nickname for this unknown (to us obviously) place was because of their bootleg liquor, gambling and prostitution (sounds like we found a place for Angi to retire to.) Munice is on our radar because a couple was rushed to the hospital after a single engine plane fell on them. After suffering some form of malfunction, the plane fell out of the sky and onto the people walking in the park seriously injuring one of them as well as the pilot. This is clearly an insane injury story and so it got Angi to ponder, what is the craziest/dumbest way that you've injured yourself? Angi's tale was one she has told before and we still get a kick out of it. On a booze cruise meant to help facilitate sales client interactions, Angi was sober (sure bitch) when her high heels and the wobbling floor decided to become her enemy. While doing the "Cupid Shuffle," Angi went to the left, to the left and then to the floor. This slam on the ground would have probably ended current day grandma but at the time, it only ended up breaking her wrist. As they carted off Angi, the clients probably assumed she was a lush (rightfully so) but she insisted the boss call Jay the Straight to tell him she was on the way to the hospital and definitely not drunk. The end result is her now metal plated wrist. With Angi's hilarity ... sorry injury, covered, we moved over to the Request Line. Leslie sprained her ankle after tripping over her dog. She had been cooking and the dog was behind her and so when she moved, she went down. Angi said her dogs are trying to trip her at home as well (see: senior moments) and they purposely run into her to cause her to drop food. Donny was holding onto the outside of a driving pickup truck and when he jumped, he ended up tearing open his nuts. He got four stitches and has three kids now so clearly the accident, while horrific, wasn't too bad. John was grilling and walked away to get cheese for the burgers and when he turned, he rolled and broke his ankle. Ken was sledding while tied to the back of a jeep after a snowstorm and he ended up flying off the sled and into a tree where he smacked his head. Though he suffered a major concussion and calcified a soft spot on his head, his friends assumed they killed him and dragged him into the house saying "we killed Kenny!" Joe was 10 and sledding on a retention pond when he hit a branch that ended up getting shoved up his butt.

What's this, what's this, a chance to stop working! Actually, not full stop but for someone like Marris who has 15 jobs, an interesting opportunity is presenting itself in California. A bill that is currently trying to get passed called the Right to Disconnect bill would make it so that calls, email and texts from the office would cease when the work day ends. The idea here is that enjoying personal time needs to occur without all the nonsense that comes from work. This was something that was almost enacted at iHeart when Big Poppa suggested during covid that there should be no emails after 5 P.M. This attempt at sanity lasted a good two weeks before things went back to normal. Marris then walked us through his life, explaining how after the show finishes, he goes to his office then does an hour commute home, decompresses, naps and then goes right back to work again. His thing is though that for him, he tends to get a lot of work done after 5 P.M. and the split shifts (while awful) work. Angi suggested that Marris just go home after the show like she does (diva) but the in office meetings kind of kill that. Zoom in the car was the next offering but what we were exploring here is the ability to have a little semblance of a life after work. The issue is smart phones have blurred the lines of what boundaries are when it comes to work and home. You are usually always available for a text and then suddenly 20 other people are chiming in and you're working once again. There is also the fact that we are in media so we need to be on 24-7 doing show prep and keeping track of things worth discussing. As surprising as it may sound, everything we do is for the show even if you don't see it behind the scenes. The bill though would take after places like Mexico, Spain, France and Ireland that make it so private and public employers have a line of when they can keep harassing you about work and Angi hopes that this would cause it to go national here in America if California gets it right. Until then Angi will take calls on the toilet and send emails in the shower.

Finally, Angi has found a new reason to renew her Costco card (aside from having to wait for Rufio to bring her Reese's Frozen Banana Slices.) Coming soon and in big bold letters, $179 Ozempic for all members. The three month supply is part of the surplus due to everyone and their mother making the drug now to profit off the fact that diabetes drugs double as an appetite suppressant. While diabetics don't have to worry about dying anymore the rest of us can be thin it to win it. Without insurance, these shots can cost $1,600 weekly but here at Costco you can get a case of water, a box of coffee and some chocolate bars to sniff while also getting the hot girl summer miracle drug on the cheap.

Toastee: Men That Are Good Snugglers

Apparently experts have come out to say that the key to a happy marriage is based on several things. Good sex, saying "I Love You" and sprinkling compliments. The good sex might be in jeopardy though because 96% of couples do not snuggle and snuggling leads to better sex. Angi knows this all too well because her fish out of water, restless leg syndrome husband has only cuddled her for 7 minutes in 15 years and she's afraid that it might be the end of things if someone doesn't hold her soon.
