The Big Boo Cast, Episode 31

Well, I would welcome you to our annual Christmas podcast – except I don’t think Melanie and I have actually recorded a Christmas podcast in about five years. We are far too fond of flying by the seat of our collective pants to plan anything in advance, much less to commit to it on a yearly basis. We like to tell ourselves this is part of our charm, but it’s actually probably a little annoying.

This time around we talk about a bunch of different stuff: Melanie’s theory about Pinterest, Christmas with little ones (newsflash: our kids aren’t really “little ones” anymore), TV shows that make us paranoid, holiday treats, my ongoing eyelash issues (and Melanie’s solution), and our observations about overly familiar customer service. So basically we just ramble, but since we recorded this one on December 21, VOILA: CHRISTMAS PODCAST.

Also, for some reason my Mississippi accent is real strong this time around. I watched Steel Magnolias the night before, and apparently it triggered some dormant speech patterns. I say this because there’s a point when I pronounce “our” like “ire,” so I hope you folks from other parts of the country don’t require a translator.

You can click here to listen. Or here. Or, as always, you can subscribe on iTunes if you’re feeling particularly fancy.

Merry Christmas, y’all. So grateful for you!

  1. Can’t wait to listen! Merry Christmas to you and your family, Sophie!

  2. I am a manager in customer service….I tell my boss ALL the time that people care more about me getting the job done in a timely manner than being chitty chatty. That’s how I personally feel when I go somewhere or call customer service, so that’s how I imagine most people feel, as well!

  3. Merry Christmas Sophie! Thank you for the Christmas podcast. I am looking forward to listening on my run! Love and joy to you and your family.

  4. Kathleen George says:

  5. Merry Christmas, sweet Sophie! I am so excited to listen to this podcast while I wrap gifts! So thank you ever so much! I sure do love you and Melanie. I get so tickled when y’all are tickled. As I told Melanie, savor your time with your child. It all goes by so fast. Enjoy!!
