The Big Boo Cast, Episode 180

By the time this episode releases, most of us will have been affected / impacted / sidelined / challenged by the quarantine for a full month. If you’re in other parts of the world, it may have been longer for you. So given the fact that we have now been wearing (mostly) pajamas and workout clothes for the better part of thirty days, Melanie and I thought we would discuss one of our favorite topics: items that bring us comfort.

And let me just assure you: a couple of Enneagram 9s know about some comfort. The pursuit of comfort is one of our spiritual gifts. :-)

All that to say: the show notes are really long because clearly we have been figuring out how to be really comfortable. But we hope you enjoy, and we hope you’re well – and for those of you on the front lines of this particular battle, know that we are deeply grateful.

Take care, everybody!

  1. Hey from day 43ish over here🇮🇹! Thanks for this! You can do it, America,

  2. Charlene Lammers says:

    Thank you for making me laugh today.

    Our dog is living like a king. I made him homemade deer jerky yesterday. He has his own chair next to me while I work. He is going to need Xanax when I go back to my office.

  3. Does Melanie have a link for the giant inflatable pool? Need. It.

  4. I can always count on y’all for a laugh and to cheer me. Thank you! Do you make the recipe for the French Onion Beef Sliders exactly as written, or do you change it up some? I’m *finally* going to try them. Well, if I can find slider buns.

  5. Michele Brooks says:

    I made the chocolate cobbler today. It’s a huge hit!

  6. Thank you for another great episode. I think we would be lost without your humor.
