The Big Boo Cast, Episode 109

In what is no doubt the complete opposite of a surprise, we had some sound issues with this one. We still don’t know exactly why. What we do know, though, is that I sound like a loud talker and Melanie sounds like a soft talker who is trying to subtly communicate to me that I need to PIPE DOWN. So thanks in advance for bearing with us; we’ll do our best to get that worked out for next time.

As for what we talk about, well, there’s a lot: college baseball (Mississippi State is headed to the College World Series!), a new show Melanie really likes, famous people we follow on Instagram, some new music I’m excited about, and a few new skincare / make-up finds.

So basically, you know, some of our favorite topics.

Hope y’all enjoy!

    Longtime reader. Please be careful about recommending Simple Contacts. Significant eye disease is missed when people utilize their app, which in no way constitutes a comprehensive eye health & vision exam. Contact lenses are not one size fits all; the prescription must be measured carefully & the base curve of the contact lens must also fit the cornea, hence the need for examination of the contacts while on the eyes by an eye doctor. Contact lenses are a medical device regulated by the FDA. The contact lenses they sell are made of antiquated material with poor oxygen transmission to the surface of the eye, ancient technology = how they can sell them so cheap! If you think that insulin doesn’t belong in vending machines for patients to order at will without being under the care of their primary care physician or endocrinologist, then recognize that Simple Contacts is doing the same thing but with contacts. I am an eye doctor (in Birmingham!) with zero financial interest in the sale of contact lenses, but I feel your readers deserve fair warning. Simple Contacts is making a quick buck at the expense of eye health. And if you are a person who wears specialty contact lenses to correct astigmatism or a multifocal (to correct near, intermediate & distance vision) contact lens, Simple Contacts cannot help you.
