Speaker 1:

Hi guys, this is Ryan Frankovsky and Kelly Misgorsky, and you're listening to Mocktails or Messy. What's going on, kelly?

Speaker 2:

I'm happy to be here, so I have some Chardonnay Kendall Jackson.

Speaker 1:

That's your go-to right.

Speaker 2:

It's my go-to. And what do you got?

Speaker 1:

I got the Chardonnay alcohol-free, and this is the Lights van.

Speaker 2:

Goet.

Speaker 1:

Lights van Goet. It's zero Chardonnay, non-alcoholic. This Chardonnay is from the latest addition to the Lights van Goet portfolio. It offers an original character that is, clean, fresh fruit citrus.

Speaker 2:

I'm going to open that for you and I'm going to pour it for you.

Speaker 1:

Pour a big, nice mocktail glass of that. I'm excited to try it. She said it was one of the best.

Speaker 2:

I gave you a very heavy pour.

Speaker 1:

It's amazing. I really love this one.

Speaker 2:

Can I smell it?

Speaker 1:

Yes, you can even try it if you want. I know you don't have any cooties. That's pretty good. Do you want to try it? No, no, no, no. Oh, you don't like to mix?

Speaker 2:

No, I don't share drinks or food. I'm actually food aggressive.

Speaker 1:

What's food aggressive?

Speaker 2:

Remember last week, when I wouldn't share my appetizer with anyone.

Speaker 1:

Oh yes.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, I'm like food aggressive. There's dogs that'll rip your face off If you try to touch their food bowl. I identify with those dogs.

Speaker 1:

Well, don't touch your food, or she could bite.

Speaker 2:

You Don't you ever try to touch my food.

Speaker 1:

Oh, she's aggressive. I like it.

Speaker 2:

Food aggressive.

Speaker 1:

We are blacked out today with our black on black silky vibes.

Speaker 2:

Okay, so I looked up trending searches for March and one of them, here we'll start with, is psychological safety. Have you heard of this before? No, so psychological safety means that you're feeling safe to take interpersonal risks, to speak up, to disagree openly, to surface concerns without fear of negative repercussions or pressure to sugarcoat bad news. So I don't know. I feel like when I was in the workforce I don't know that I had like the psychological safety per se.

Speaker 2:

It's all like you have to like, please the boss. Right, it's not about me, it's about doing a good job at work and pleasing the boss. But now everybody, you know, has a voice. I sound like a boomer.

Speaker 1:

right now I do feel like I have Zelenio. I feel like I don't want to have this kind of dynamic, because sometimes your leader or your manager that was put in that role is not always the most qualified or they're maybe not doing the best job. So to have that respectful intervention or communication from the peers or the colleagues, I think it could be a better right.

Speaker 2:

Peppers and colleagues are not peasants per se, so, like everybody, should have a voice. Cheers to not being a peasant Right. So and if you're qualified for the job, then you should be qualified to have a voice as well, yeah, exactly yeah, I guess I do agree with that.

Speaker 1:

Well, I think that was a good question, it's not used to it right. Yeah.

Speaker 2:

Now another thing that is most commonly searched for March is postbiotics. So we've heard of like prebiotics and probiotics. Have you heard of postbiotics?

Speaker 1:

I've never heard of that.

Speaker 2:

It's a term that refers to the waste left behind after your body digests both pre and postbiotics. Like a healthy postbiotic includes nutrients such as vitamin B, k, amino acids and substances called antimicrobial peptides, so this all works in slowing the growth of harmful bacteria.

Speaker 1:

That's really interesting. I mean, I always hear about probiotics but I've never understood that there was like a post.

Speaker 2:

Yeah. So like you want healthy waste, so like people do get like fecal transplants sometimes if their gut is unhealthy and they're sick, you can get a fecal transplant from a healthy person and that is like 95% effective in helping to heal your gut. So that's why I think people are focusing more now on like postbiotics.

Speaker 1:

Look at you being all like. You're like inspiring me to learn more about this. I mean, I've never like it cut. It kind of makes sense, but then it also seems a little dirty.

Speaker 2:

It sounds gross. You want the benefits of like good, immune health.

Speaker 1:

Yes.

Speaker 2:

They say that your gut is connected to your brain. Oh yes, so I don't know.

Speaker 1:

No, it makes sense, it makes total sense.

Speaker 2:

But guess how much you can earn from donating stool samples like fecal samples.

Speaker 1:

I didn't even think that that would be a thing.

Speaker 2:

It is a thing.

Speaker 1:

I've never I'm I'm guess how much I could earn, like what? Like 50 dollars a shit.

Speaker 2:

Probably. So essentially they say like up to 1500 a month is what you could earn donating your fecal matter. What? Yeah, 15 hundred a month just donating shit? Yes, and that's right on par with donating sperm oh god, sperm. You could also earn up to 1500 per month.

Speaker 1:

Did I tell you I tried to donate sperm, but they were like no, did they say no, no way. It was an LA.

Speaker 2:

yeah, I'm kind of glad that they did say no, so what was wrong with you then?

Speaker 1:

I think honestly Ivy League and 511.

Speaker 2:

Okay, so you're too short and you're too dumb.

Speaker 1:

But anyways, that's enough about me no, I love it. Because then you're like that would have been really not a comfortable.

Speaker 2:

How many Johnny's do I have running around out there? How many kids are gonna be trying to contact me once they turn 18?

Speaker 1:

I don't think that's a good idea. I.

Speaker 2:

Don't know, I'm not gonna dog it. I think there's a time and a place for it and there is a purpose for it. But are you looking at yourself in?

Speaker 1:

the camera. Oh my god, I'm sorry, I don't know what's going on. It's like got like this bump.

Speaker 2:

But look at me.

Speaker 1:

Is it okay you could help me right Like I almost feel like I have a mullet.

Speaker 2:

You need a haircut. Okay, so another new thing. Yes, so you've been married before.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, we touched a little bit about that.

Speaker 2:

Did you have a ring?

Speaker 1:

No ring.

Speaker 2:

Okay, so it's just on paper.

Speaker 1:

It was just on paper. It was kind of like a courthouse type of situation, okay, but you know it was real love fair enough.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, you don't need an expensive ring or a wedding. You don't need that to define your marriage. No or so. Now people are into like lab-grown diamonds.

Speaker 1:

Why, like the cost it has to be, it's always about their ethical, apparently Sustainable.

Speaker 2:

And of course the cost. So they cost about 60 to 85 percent less Than a normal diamond.

Speaker 1:

How do they make them?

Speaker 2:

It does take like a few months. They are like grown in a lab. So basically it would make sense. Like you know, cool makes diamonds. It's compressed from the earth over thousands of years, but they do it in a few months here in a lab.

Speaker 1:

Oh, my god sir, that means that your next husband you can get a bigger diamond with a lab-grown one.

Speaker 2:

Well, I mean I will keep the husband I have. So the problem is is that they're perfect.

Speaker 1:

So they don't have character.

Speaker 2:

Oh no, we don't like that but they're made out of the same material, so there's not necessarily a way to tell. So I don't know if I'd go for it or not. Hmm why spend the extra money when you can get a lab-grown diamond?

Speaker 1:

You know what? I think it just depends on your mindset. Like we talked about this with like homes. You want the cookie cutter, like cost Effective, functional house that you can get, like a larger space that's more energy efficient, or do you want that one that has like the character that is the ladder historical the ladder. Yeah, yes, the ladder. Yes what's the ladder?

Speaker 2:

The second one that you said oh, what's it like?

Speaker 1:

What do you mean by ladder?

Speaker 2:

You know what I've heard someone else say before and I don't really know how to explain it.

Speaker 1:

I think sometimes you like kind of impressed me and I'm like what did she say? Like even with like Vince in van Gogh, the one time I'm like, how wait, you've studied art history.

Speaker 2:

Bunch of pointless knowledge that I don't understand.

Speaker 1:

Cheers, the pointless knowledge that you don't understand. Hey, we're learning, here we are knowledge if you don't understand it.

Speaker 2:

No, I'm probably just talking out my ass.

Speaker 1:

That's all right, you got a nice ass.

Speaker 2:

Oh, thank you. I've been doing some squats.

Speaker 1:

I know I've always admired your curves.

Speaker 2:

Thank you in all the right places. Thank you. I feel like you and I have similar body types. This is something that actually blew my mind. Oh, are you getting messy?

Speaker 1:

I am, I feel, a little placebo.

Speaker 2:

You're getting a little like blushed I.

Speaker 1:

Walk tails are messy is real. I'm gonna get you on that train.

Speaker 2:

So you're on your second mocktail. Whoo you're feeling it. Okay, so this blew my mind. You know how most spices are like a seed or an herb.

Speaker 1:

Yes.

Speaker 2:

What I wanna know, if you know what is paprika.

Speaker 1:

Paprika. Ooh, so I've seen it. I've probably used it. I don't know what exactly it is Like. Is it in the cayenne pepper group?

Speaker 2:

Ooh, you're so smart. Okay, so it is a pepper. It is a red pepper. It's dehydrated, crushed red pepper.

Speaker 1:

I kind of am impressed that I just I kind of threw that out there.

Speaker 2:

It looks like it let's be honest, I'm kind of disappointed that you knew, cause I didn't know.

Speaker 1:

Well, I mean, does that shock you?

Speaker 2:

I mean, oh, my husband's calling me.

Speaker 1:

You wanna answer? Put on speaker.

Speaker 2:

Sure, hey, there. We're just in the middle of a podcast. Would you like to say hi, oh?

Speaker 1:

yeah, hey, what's up? Just driving home from work, we're excited to see you later.

Speaker 2:

Oh yeah, I should be home around I don't know, seven-ish. Okay, we'll have dinner ready for us. Okay, what are we doing for dinner? Just have it ready for us. All right, we gotta run the toodles.

Speaker 1:

Wait, can I ask you?

Speaker 2:

one question.

Speaker 1:

Hold on, hold on one question how true is happy wife, happy life? Or is that just bullshit? It's pretty true, but there is something to be said about happy husband, happy life. God, god, click bye. Oh my God, he is like my favorite person. Do you need to switch?

Speaker 2:

sides.

Speaker 1:

No, no, no, no, no, no. I'm fine, you really want to? Yeah, let's switch, yeah.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, I think that you're upset about your hair right now. Something's off. I think I'm just gonna switch for you. Oh, this is good.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, I like. Oh, wow, so much better Now. Do you like that? Oh?

Speaker 2:

my God, that's literally hilarious. Welcome to my life, welcome to my best friend. We switched sides because-.

Speaker 1:

Oh God, now look.

Speaker 2:

Just scoot this way Because we have a very vain person in the building.

Speaker 1:

I mean, it does take one to know one.

Speaker 2:

Okay, so another popular search for March is micro weddings.

Speaker 1:

I want one.

Speaker 2:

Okay, so can you tell me what do you? How many people? Do you think is a micro wedding?

Speaker 1:

I would say 50.

Speaker 2:

Okay, have you researched all this ahead of time?

Speaker 1:

Honey, I'm just that intuitive.

Speaker 2:

A micro wedding is 50 people or less.

Speaker 1:

I mean, does it make sense, like when you think of like a wedding you're not gonna have less than, like I don't know, 40? Like Right, you wouldn't even waste your time with it.

Speaker 2:

But then I guess people have it.

Speaker 1:

My wedding would be completely different, so your wedding was pretty magical. I do love like how you invited my family and then even some aunts and uncles.

Speaker 2:

Your family's my family 100%, but micro wedding it makes sense. I love you, you know like would you be the type to elope, so like would you go to a different country? Like what would you do? Because then it wouldn't make sense to have more than, like you know, 50 people.

Speaker 1:

To be honest, the last one relationship I thought I was like I kept pushing this idea, like I wanted to get married in London.

Speaker 2:

I wanted to get married in England. I know I was waiting to be asked to be in the bridal party and it never happened. I know.

Speaker 1:

I know. And so then I was like you know what I think I want. Now You're gonna call me crazy. I want, like a massive wedding. I think I just want to make this huge, massive event because I think, after spending time in my friends wedding in Laguna Beach, I was like wow, this is a celebration of love. I think we were a little messy today, I know, I think it was just like we couldn't figure out that. Maybe it was just me.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, it was. You Love your little bow tie on your neck. You like that? I just want to.

Speaker 1:

What do they call that? A pussy bow? They do actually.

Speaker 2:

Do they call that a pussy bow?

Speaker 1:

Yes, definitely been missing the pussy bow. I actually am missing that. Maybe I should too.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, you've disclosed that.

Speaker 1:

Anyway cheers.

Speaker 2:

Thank you for listening, mocktails or messy, and we'll see you next time. Bye, bye.

Speaker 1:

Dude, you killed it. Oh shit, let's get out of here before we get in trouble. We've gotten in trouble before. It's a pleasure speaking to you now, oh my god, legally.
