The Big Boo Cast, Episode 322

Melanie and I didn’t intend to sound like we’ve given up this week, but we do talk about the frustrating state of empty nest cooking as well as our ability to remember detailed song lyrics from the 80s while having absolutely no idea where the scissors are. Plus, Melanie shares about her weekend in College Station, and I may or may not recite a classic Amy Grant song like it’s a poem.

We also discuss what we’re looking for in the next fiction book we read (epic! sweeping! preferably in an air conditioned setting!), and it’s my turn for Five Favorites.

Enjoy, everybody!
