Before we get started, here’s your link to the Monday edition of The Jeff Kay Show podcast. It’s also available in all the usual podcast locations. And there’s a website the hosting company auto-generates. I have almost no input into this thing, it just appears as if by voodoo black magic. But it’s another place where you can hear the Monday episodes if you’re so inclined.
Here’s the description:
In this one I tell you about an aborted visit to the new Dairy Queen, people double-dipping on the stuff I don’t know, the Lewis Phenomenon, Jim Halpert as an international badass, being trapped in the haircut funnel, a music video that single-handedly destroyed the career of an 80s rock star, and asking Gordon Ramsay to please come up here and put a metaphorical foot in my ass.
I hope you enjoy it. Seventeen episodes now! They’re stacking up quickly, and I’m far less self-conscious in front o’ the microphone at this point. That’s not to say they’re good, or anything. Let’s not get crazy. But there are some laughs, I think. Thanks for listening!
Today I’d like to ask you guys about the sounds that make you absolutely crazy. I have lots and lots of ’em. In fact, Toney often accuses me of being “on the spectrum.” I don’t know about that, but there are plenty of sounds and noises that send an electric current of white-hot annoyance straight through me. Including, but not limited to:
People smacking their lips while eating
The sound of people talking through walkie talkies
Incessant gum snapping
The creaking door voice
The half whine/half cry little shithead kids make
People dragging chairs across a floor
When a diva-style singer launches into one of those showy up-and-down yodels
Ludicrously loud cars and motorcycles
People who almost literally make the GULP sound while swallowing
Repetitive ink pen clicking
I could probably come up with 20 or 50 more, but you get the idea. I’m now going to turn it over to you guys to list the sounds that really touch a nerve with you. Use the comments link below, or maybe above.
And it’s crazy, but our Las Vegas trip is less than two weeks away. It doesn’t seem real. We’re deep (deep!) in a rut here, and the idea of Toney and me on an airplane, going to some over-the-top vacation destination just feels impossible. But, unless something happens here at Chez Kay between now and then, we’re going. The boys will be on their own for a week, and that’s on them. They’re old enough. Sheesh. Hopefully, the cops and/or fire department don’t have to get involved. I’m fairly concerned about that, but am sure it’ll be fine. Maybe. Possibly. ,,,We’ll see.
OK, I’m calling it a day, my friends. If you haven’t given the podcast a listen, please do. The Monday episodes are completely free and readily available. I’m digging the whole experience so far. It’s fun!
I’ll see you guys again on Thursday.
Have a great week!
