There is a dark place, but I'm not going. No, no. Not there is a dark place, but I'm not going.Speaker 2:
Hi, I'm Jordan. And I'm Lex. And this is, or Learn Parkour. It's a podcast about a D H D done by two people who have a D H D. And one of them also has a sinus infection. And I have extra adhd cuz I've been eating so many peppermints. There's so much red dye in those. Is that supposed to cause adhd? Apparently we've probably talked about that, huh? Yep. Yeah. All right. Yep. Listen, I don't know how we've gotten into the forties when it comes to numbers of episodes, but we're here. Okay. We are. And it's been happening for so long now. I'm sorry, I can't remember. I can't remember. I don't, I don't You don't remember every single one of our now 43 plus episodes in Vivid word for word detail? Absolutely not. Me neither. That's fine. Okay. Well,<laugh>, yeah. Uh, well, welcome to the show. It's a Christmas special. Woo. Um, or holiday special, like, whatever. It doesn't matter. Like we're, you know, seasons GREs, seasons gras. Can you believe this is our third Christmas special? That's so bananas, isn't it? So, yeah. I mean, the thing is though, is that like, our Christmas specials have never really been like Christmas specials. I mean, last year's was a pretty pretty close adaption of the night before Christmas, the poem. Oh, yeah. I forgot about that.<laugh>. Okay. So it is so hard. It's exactly like that. Okay. Well, my segue was gonna be like until now, because this year we're bringing you right into the writer's room. That's true. You weren't in the writer. Well, we did do the director's cut. We did. So see, we're both wrong. So for once in our lives, we're consistent. We're doing something similar to what we did before, sort of ish. It's like kind of, we thought it would be funny to essentially write the plot of an A D H D Hallmark Christmas movie. I love doing this generally. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>, please. Somebody ask me about the plots for Hallmark Christmas movies that I have developed. I have so many ideas. Someone, some producer somewhere, please. Yeah, we do have a lot of ammo. Mm-hmm.<affirmative> for this one. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. But like, doesn't everybody, like, I feel like this is a pretty common thing, right? Yeah. Like we all like to imagine our fun little spicy take on a Hallmark movie or a Christmas special or a holiday film. I feel, feel like they all do exactly what you want them to do. They're super cheesy and they're super festive, and you kind of know exactly what's going to happen mm-hmm.<affirmative>. And you watch it and your thirst for that is satisfied. But I don't know about you, but I always watch that and I go, I think I could do better. Yeah. I think you could do better as well,<laugh>. Well, thank you. Yeah. It's high praise. Okay. So let's do better. Yeah, let's do better. Or at least attempt to, you know, I, I don't wanna set any standard here, you know, that's fair. Like, let's just lay that out there. Like, I'm again, one of us has a sinus infection, so mm-hmm.<affirmative>, you know, how about this? Let's do better than not making anything at all. Yeah, there you go. That's a standard. I think. Yeah. Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. Honestly. Let's talk about our schedule. It's a surprise even to us,<laugh>. So, you know, we're just doing what we can. Thanks for sticking with us. We appreciate you all very much. Oh, so much. Before we, uh, really get this rig, Roland mm-hmm.<affirmative> And start talking about the feature film that we're gonna spin into existence, and then it's like half hour produce and Yeah. So before we, um, option and Yeah. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>, before we get into that, do you wanna talk about Yes. Yeah. Let's, like, we have some things coming up. My, my friends. We sure do. First of all, we are gonna take our usual holiday break, so we will catch y'all in the new year after this one. And we hope y'all have a safe and happy holiday and all that good. And we'll probably tell you that at the end of episode two. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. But I just wanna get it out there in case we forget. Fair? Yeah. You know, happy holidays, as we said before, seasons grease, and we're gonna relax a little bit and enjoy a lot of holiday food. Hope y'all will get to relax a little bit. Enjoy some holiday food if you would like, or other kinds of food. Or don't you? It's up to you. It's not our business. What is happening? Are you okay? You're like catering to literally everybody right now. What's happening? I have no idea. Okay. You know what? No, you can't relax audience because we have a job for you. We do. Oh, that's a good point. Yeah. That's why I'm like, what the are you saying? No, sh we're taking a break now. It's your turn to make podcast content. It's on you. Would you two like to be a piece of? Amazing. We're giving you that opportunity here and now, Jordan, tell'em about it. So one thing that we are going to do, the thing that we are going to do in the new year is come back from our break with an episode where we hear from you. We are here talking. We make this podcast and every episode we talk about our dopamine trampoline and what is giving us dopamine, what is making our day, our week, our year, our life. Many of you know the drill by now. If not, you will by the end of this episode. However, however, we are going to open up the phone lines so that listeners, just like you can support community radio broadcasting. We're not, we're not a radio What?<laugh> Community of two on-demand radio on-demand broadcasting. That's where the casting podcast comes from. Did you know that? Okay. So let's tell them what we're asking them to do. We are gonna have a phone line open so that you can call in. Yes. And depending on what you say, cuz I'm not gonna lie, we're not just gonna throw anything out there. Yeah. Like if you call in with like a bomb threat. A what the is wrong with you? And B, no thank you. Believe it or not, we have standards sometimes, sometimes so hard to believe. I know. But we do<laugh>. What we would love to hear from you though, is your dopamine trampoline. You can also send us an email with that if you would prefer to. But we have a phone line set up. You can call, leave a message and your recordings will have the opportunity to end up in our first episode of 2023 or second episode or second, because depending on how many of you call in, that's fair. Like, that's a good point. We have to reach a cap to have the amount of time mm-hmm.<affirmative>. So unless one of y'all wants to call and leave an like an hour long message, I'm not selling this very well, but like your message could end up in one of our 20, 23 episodes. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>, it'll just be a fun secret little surprise. Which one? Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. Yeah. So what are we asking them to call in about? They're do pooping trampoline. Right. Okay. And the number for that, which is on our website, it will be in the episode notes, it will be on whatever. So meets are left standing. By the time this episode drops Taylor, they're dropping like flies. Yeah. Anyways, that number is 3 1 2 6 2 5 3 7 6 0. Again, that number is 3 1 2 6 2 5 3 7 6 0. You know, I really appreciate that you repeated it. That's so nice of you. But I will say it's not like this is a phone recording system where like you only get to hear the voicemail recording thing one time and then they just set you loose. Like this is a podcast. So you could pause it and rewind. But I feel like saying it twice is fine. That's, that's fine. I really should have said it third times. I feel like there's like a rule, little of three thing, we're up right now. But I feel like that's more for public speaking. That's fair. Like when you're in front of an audience, physically sitting in front of you friends, Romans, countrymen, comrades, give us your dopamine trampolines. Please. Please, we would love to hear from you. We appreciate y'all tuning into us and hearing ours. It's a very fun part of the show that always, I don't know, I guess I can't speak for you, but it brings me dopamine in and of itself. And no, I hate talking about what I like<laugh> me sharing my interests. Well then you don't have to do it<laugh>. I'm kidding. I know, I know. But as much as we love it, we also love hearing from you guys, you folks, that also makes my day when people reach out. Same. Not to get too sappy about it here, but we enjoy hearing from you guys. So we wanted to, uh, put an episode together to put the ball in your court and hear what is bringing y'all joy. Especially, especially in the beginning of the year. That winter zone, uh, is kind of Garbo. It's kind of Garbo. It's big fat Garbo stinky. Yeah. Stinky heaps of Garbo. So let's all share something that brings us dopamine and, and past those good neurochemicals around. Yeah. So that's it. I'm not gonna repeat the number again. It at this point, if you need to hear this again, you gotta rewind it. That's in your, that's on you now. That's what I said the first time. But thank you. We're repeating it two times though. Didn't agree that that was the hell<laugh>. Oh my God. Okay. All right. So Hallmark movie. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>, I think the most important question to start out with is between the small town person who loves Christmas and the big city Scrooge, which person has adhd? Okay, hold on. Melissa's, we're opening a whole can of worms here of like who's, okay, hold on. Let's, not every Hallmark movie has to be some form of regional classism.<laugh>. Okay. So I, I vote that it's not a big city small town dichotomy. Okay. I would just like to say cuz also, I don't know, both of them could have adhd. I feel like that's an option. Probably honestly representatively. Like what if it's not necessarily like one person with ADHD and one person without mm-hmm.<affirmative>. But like one person with hyperactive adhd. Oh. And another person with inattentive. Adhd. Adhd. Okay. Okay. I like where this is going. Yeah. And I realize that I've put a kibosh on small town versus big city. What other ideas did you have before I, um, just sort of start stomping every sand castle you build? No, I'm just, this is kill your darlings. Right? This is the writer's room we are here to craft and I trust you to tell me if my ideas are Garbo. That's what we're here for. We're here for the Garbo. We're here for the Garbo. We're here to sift through the Garbo. Yeah. To find the diamond in the rough. Yeah. We're trying to find like the least moldy loaf of bread. Mm-hmm.<affirmative> in the big stinky Garbo pile. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. So hit me. So I think I'm not attached to this, but I think generally there is one person who loves Christmas and one person who isn't super hot on it. Absolutely. Yes. Um, I'm behind that. Yeah. I'm thinking of like Dolly Parton's Christmas movie. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. Like that's one, that's one town. There's, it's less of the big city thing cuz everyone's in the same place. That's kind of a part of it. I don't wanna spoil it for anyone, but it is on Netflix, darling. But all that to say,<laugh> one person is into Christmas, one person is not as much into Christmas. My gut instinct, I'm just gonna throw this out here. The person who loves Christmas, I think that they really like snow globes. Like that's a thing. Like, I don't know if, if they're like a collector or they have like, they run like a snow globe museum mm-hmm.<affirmative> or they make them mm-hmm.<affirmative> or we go a little like fantasy maybe Claymation zone and they're in a snow globe. Okay. Okay. Wes<laugh>. All right, Mr. Anderson, let's take it down a notch. I deserved that. So they're in a snow globe.<laugh>. We're just gonna go straight to that one. Huh? Well, why not? You, you laid it out there and I'm, I'm gonna pick it up. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>, because it's the closest one to me. Mm.<laugh> it rolled the furthest. So, okay. They live in a snow globe. So jot that down. But we zoom into said snow globe. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. So I'm imagining if there's someone who has a snow globe shop mm-hmm.<affirmative>. Is it like a map maker makes globes because if they're living in a snow globe. See now that's, that's my primary concern with this movie Uhhuh, is I'm like, philosophically it doesn't narrow our, our setting down quite a bit. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>, no. Here's Okay, I back it up. I back it up. Okay. I think we're gonna stick with the snow globe like creator or collector thing. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>, but end credit scene zooming in on a snow globe in their collection. That is them. Okay. So you just want like, the image of them being cute in a snow globe? I get it. Sign, seal, deliver. I in. Okay. Great. Great. So we have our ending. Where do we start? Oh, isn't that how most, most of the greats work? It's not mm-hmm.<affirmative>. It's not, but it is a way. Um, if we were working how the great writers worked, I would be way less sober right now. Yeah. I would be so hopped up on cocaine, probably<laugh>, like, I don't know. I'd be like, what? Sinus infection out. I dunno. So how, so Owen Wilson plays who I blame you for giving me Wes Anderson energy and then me just coming in hot with Owen Wilson because what a duo<laugh>. Um, you've lived with me for four years. You shouldn't you should expect Wes Anderson energy by now. Yeah, that's fair. Okay. Remember when the first thing we wrote together, like four years ago specifically has a line making fun of the character who was based on me Yeah. About being to, to s Anderson. So we have a snow globe. Oh, right. Yeah. So if we collector or creator. Yeah. Well, I, I kind of like the idea of one person having a snow globe shop. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. Okay. Right. So they make and sell the snow globes. Well, okay. So that's where I'm like, I don't know if they actually make the snow globes. I'm imagining that they maybe have an associate, like they're in a small art artsy town. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>, let's say, you know, let, let's switch it up. It's not like small town, rural. Mm-hmm.<affirmative> America. We're not gonna do that. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>, it's, it's not a big city either. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>, like, let's say it's like a, a coastal town. Yes. Yeah. I love me, me a good coastal town. Yeah. And who doesn't love a beachy Christmas, you know? Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. So, um, like a little, little Oregon coast or maybe we go a little north, like somewhere in that zone. Is that the kind of coastal or are we thinking like main Massachusetts places with lobster? I was fully going until like the Carolinas. Okay. With like beachy. Okay. Beachy, like Myle Beach Christmas. However, I'm not married to that idea. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. Um, I just like the idea of palm trees with Christmas lights on them. That's great. Um, let's roll with that. I love it. Right in South Carolina. But there's a snow globe shop. There's, there's a person who's I, cause I imagine there's a lot of work that goes into the making of a snow globe. Yes. Lots of components. And so what I think is that maybe cuz it's a small artistic town mm-hmm.<affirmative> and they use all these like locally sourced, whatever, whatever that the person who does the actual glass blowing of the bulbs, like the globes. Mm-hmm.<affirmative> is a crochety person. Okay. Who has like a glassblowing studio and they do other glassblowing things, right? Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. But they have a soft spot for the snow globe shop owner. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. They've never been super close, but they've always melts their cold heart a little bit. Yeah. Just a little. Okay. Yeah. Okay. And obviously there has to be a catalyst for them to spend more time together. Do you think there's like some sort of like tourism time coming up mm-hmm.<affirmative> For like, cuz it, I imagine if it's a beachy town in like South Carolina or some mm-hmm.<affirmative> the winter is probably a big season for them. No, no, no. Okay. Because it's cold and like, it's not actually that warm. Oh, okay. Even in winter, I've never been to South Carolina, so. Right. Okay. Sorry. So sorry. Yeah. Even like, even Florida, like it's like, not like hot and beachy Okay. All year round. Okay. Um, so that would be like a slower, like maybe a tough season. Yes. However mm-hmm.<affirmative> if they live in this art town mm-hmm.<affirmative> and everyone wants to go and like, like say it's like a cute little coastal town. Mm-hmm.<affirmative> people want to go there during the Christmas holidays Yeah. To shop local, get like support local artists. Like it's kind of a Leavenworth destination. Yeah. Yeah. Or like a, uh, for closer to where we are now, uh, more of like a Franken moth situation. No idea what that is. It'ss, it's a city that'll be, that'll be for our Midwest listeners. The Leavenworth reference will be for our Washington listeners. Yes. That's what I'm saying. Balancing it out. That's what I said. Great. Yeah. I was adding the other ones.<laugh>. Yeah. Okay.<laugh>. Oh my god. Okay. We got there. Sure. Yes. Uh, yeah. So small art town. Mm-hmm.<affirmative> Christmas. Mm-hmm.<affirmative> or like holiday season generally, right? Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. So I would imagine that the person who makes the snow globes, their talent lies in the actual crafting of the scenes and the globes. The scenery, the blends of the glitter. Yes. Yeah. Yeah. I have two ideas. Oh, I'm excited. One, I think we're gonna run into some bumps in the road in terms of this love story. I think that the person who gets them through it and gives them like a little push is the chime maker who writes the little like, snow globe music box songs, you know? Mm. Okay. Okay. I'm I just throw it out there. Take it or leave it. Yeah. Sorry. Yeah. I was, those are like the super special snow globes cuz there are tons of snow globes that don't have music boxes in them. Right. I feel like they'd probably, you know mm-hmm.<affirmative>, it's someone who doesn't come in quite as often mm-hmm.<affirmative>, but I do like that. Yeah. Just like the person you call for special occasions. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. But yeah. And two, I thought of this, it might be really dark because I didn't quite think about the severity of molten glass burns mm-hmm.<affirmative>, but I was like, maybe there's a hurt comfort thing here. But I'm saying it out loud and I think, I'm don't think that it's, it might be an ouchie, maybe it's broken glass. Maybe it's like a cut. Yeah. I mean I was imagining like maybe more of an emotional thing, right? Yeah. Like maybe like the somewhat volatile X of the shop owner. It, it comes around at one point and like smashes a bunch of glass on the floor. We shoot it like slow motion. Maybe there's like some dark sounding, vaguely ominous tinkly music to go along with that theme. Mm-hmm.<affirmative> where it's like heavily implied that this person did some bad things. But this is a lighthearted Christmas movie, so we're not gonna dig too deep into it what you said you want. Okay. Sorry. No, that's, I mean, I can see it. I can visualize it. That's what we're here for. What we're here for what if mm-hmm.<affirmative>, there is space next door to the Snow Globe shop that is opening up and the Globe crafter wants to buy it, but money's a little bit tight, so they're relying on like a really good snow globe season. Mm. And so maybe that's why like the song the Chimes guy is around a little bit more. Cuz they wanna make some like fancier ones. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>, like big ticket items really branching out here. Mm-hmm.<affirmative> and then a bunch of snow globes get smashed. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. And so that's like a bummer in and of itself, but it's also like a catalyst for Yeah. Yeah. We just lost a bunch of product. We're not gonna be able to make that money. Like mm-hmm.<affirmative>, what are mm-hmm.<affirmative>, what are the stakes if we can't buy that space. Mm-hmm.<affirmative> does that, how Hmm, Hmm. How do we feel? Yeah. I'm, I'm curious about the resolution mm-hmm.<affirmative> and I'm curious to see how ADHD comes into it because we have crafted a delightful story, but I am realizing there has been not one lick of, did we happen to get off topic? No, I don't think we got off topic. Like we're, we're creating a story. Uhhuh<affirmative>. Uhhuh<affirmative> really just soaking it up and mm-hmm.<affirmative> really just, I think we just got caught on snow globes and really went for it<laugh>, honestly. Okay. So how, how is ADHD involved? How is ADHD involved? Do you ask? I do. Uh, well, okay. Well let's start with going back to the, one of them has, uh, hyperactive Uhhuh<affirmative>. One of them has inattentive. Inattentive, yeah. Yeah. An alternative fun pairing would be, one of them has d h ADHD and one of them is autistic. Yeah. That's also a very fun pairing.<laugh>. Yeah. I like my gut feeling. And you can totally fight me on this if you feel otherwise. Cuz again, it's just a gut feeling. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>, I don't really have the explanation for it at this point, so I don't actually know if it's like a bias or just a gut thing, you know? I don't know. Throw it at me. The person who owns the shop has a D h D. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. And the person who makes the snow globe, globes the glass blower. Mm-hmm.<affirmative> has autism. Yeah. Yes. Do these characters represent us in any way, shape or form? No. Huh? Me being antisocial and wanting to just make my art in peace. Hmm. With fire? With fire, yeah. Hot stuff. Yeah. Yeah. Me enjoying crafting really intricate Christmas scenes with a lot of glitter. That's a little more specific. I don't know if that's an ADHD thing, but either way, targeted attacks on both of us Yeah. Than we've set up. Yeah. Which is kind of just par for the course. I think anytime we write anything Uhhuh<affirmative>, remotely fictional Uhhuh<affirmative>, we're like, ha ha, this is so fun. And then like, when the themes of our everyday life just weave their way into our writing without fail because of our internal biases and psyche psyches. Like, it's, because that's kind of how art works a little bit. Yeah. Like, you know how, how art works Uhhuh<affirmative> and it's like, oh, oh, I've, we've heard ourselves. I dunno what that noise was. Yeah. It was truth. It was the truth. Okay. Thank you. You know? Yeah. So yeah. I don't know that, how's that feel so far? Feels good. Great. Feels good. Yeah. Yeah. So how, how is ADHD involved now? What does that do? Mm-hmm.<affirmative>, how does that affect the way the characters Wait idea. Okay. Something terrible happens. Great.<laugh>, The snow globes get smashed. Yeah. And they're able to either make more snow globes or make something else that sells really well out of a bunch of leftover craft supplies that the D h D person bought for another project before they were into snow globes and forgot that they had<laugh>. Yeah.<laugh> off. Yeah. There it's<laugh>, bing bang, boom,<laugh>. You got it. Yeah. Nailed it. Great. Crushed it. Great. Okay. Great. Uh hmm. Well, okay. So what was the project that they started beforehand then? What? I guess my question is I feel like it has to be something that them and the glass blower can work on together. Together. Yeah. So what might be up their alley. Okay. So, okay. So what if we back it up a little bit mm-hmm.<affirmative> and they had been working on together mm-hmm.<affirmative> a sort of, or Well, so I feel like, like I think they end up making snow globes because I think that, but the snow globes are a new different shape. Okay. That's not globe shape. Okay. And I think it's probably like some sort of glass, like a cup uhhuh of some kind that they had been experimenting on and like something that they made a lot of Uhhuh<affirmative> and then like, maybe they had a falling out or like the person with the shop got like assigned contract for the snow globes or like Yeah. You know, like some sort of thing where it's like, okay, uh, well we have all this stuff that we made mm-hmm.<affirmative>, you know mm-hmm.<affirmative> because like, I feel like for glass blowing for how long it takes mm-hmm.<affirmative> like, and because it's a movie. Yeah. And it's like, of course this would all happen on like Christmas Eve or some, you know? Yeah. Although I guess we could, we could remove that problem from our own That's true path. And just say that this happens earlier in the month. Yeah. So that the person who's glass blowing has more time. Yeah. Or maybe it's something that they made for a project. Maybe it's just like their passion project of like, something they really like to make. Yeah. Like their special interest. Yeah. Outside of, I'm imagining that they make glasses that are like actual real glass. Yeah. But they, they are done in a way that it seals the liquid with the glitter on the inside. Oh. So, but instead of being plastic like that, it's glass. So it's like a fancy glitter cup. Like fancy glitter cups. Yeah. Because I'm like, what's the same thing as a snow globe that's not the same thing. Same thing's. The snow globe. But it's not the same thing. But it's similar enough that I feel like it'd be like, this is a whole new way to do a smoke load. Yeah. Oh my gosh. You know the cups where it's like you drink the liquid and then there's like a little like, shape or like dye, like animal or something in the bottom. Yeah. What if it's those? Oh, that's cute. What if they end up making those? And also, and then, you know, the like glitter bottles that people make that like, you shake up and then you watch it, the glitter sit and it like calms you. Yeah. So it's also a fidget toy. We did really good. Wow. We already, yeah. I guess that's it. And then they fall, they fall deeply in love during the movie. Of course. Yeah. I feel like there's gotta be some sort of like, like the romance of it happens along the way. Yeah. But I can tell you about how the crafts go. Yeah. No, I mean, there's absolutely a scene mm-hmm.<affirmative> Where the person, the glass blower is like Patrick Swayze glass blowing teaching the person to like, that's in there. Like swimwear. That's really, you can't stop me. You can't stop me. It's a movie. This is Hollywood baby. We're gonna take the risks. Okay. We're gonna risk it for the biscuit on this one. We could make it in like a stunt sort of thing. Yeah. So that like, it's so very obvious that there's not just two people holding a flaming piece of glass on the end of a hot metal rod. Mm-hmm.<affirmative>. So it's like, it shoots this way and then it shoots this way. And you know what I mean? Like, you never actually see the whole shot. I mean, I feel like, like there's not, there can't be a whole lot of like actual glass blowing<laugh>. No, no. Maybe that, maybe we should have thought about that before. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Because if we're pitching this to the whole world, not just Hallmark mm-hmm.<affirmative>, right. We say Hallmark holiday Christmas movie. Mm-hmm. Because they're the most famous brand for it. Yeah. But Netflix has been dipping their toes. That's, and Netflix, you know, a ton of glass blows. That's true. So yeah. Maybe, maybe sorry. Yeah. The Snow Globe person is being trained to do this because normally the other person would do it alone and they like working alone, but A, they have a deadline and B, they don't actually, that turns out that they don't mind working with this person so much. Yeah. And like Yes. Like they need extra help. Yeah. In the studio. Maybe after there's like an awkward moment at the beginning where like they invite the glass blower over for like lunch or like a party, like a Christmas party or something. Like at the space where there's like food and they're like, I can't eat any of this. The texture's bad. Like, oh. And they show up in the morning, like for this like 6:00 AM like glass blowing, intensive, like with the food that they like went out of the way to figure out what the glass blower likes. Yeah. And absolutely. So y'all didn't know what my love language was before? Oh my God. Well I'm just thinking about like, the glass blower shows up to that party probably like with flowers or something. Oh. You know, like in thinking that they got invited to like a date or something, but then it ends up being a party. What? I'm trying to think of the most drama.
