Speaker 2:

Yeah, tell the story of your babysitter and the childhood trauma you have because of it.

Speaker 1:

She took us to a. This is a show that encourages you to let your messy side out, whether you're a mock teller like me, a retired party animal Ditto, or enjoy a cocktail-like Moi this is Kelly Misgorski. And Ryan Frankofsky. You're listening to Mocktails Are Messy A retired. Oh, hello there. Mrs Pride was at the parade today. We both were on the studio raw float hanging out with the crew. We love that team. We had the best day today hanging out with the crew.

Speaker 2:

We love that team. We had the best day today. I'm completely sunburned.

Speaker 1:

It was a little wild.

Speaker 2:

It was just so much fun.

Speaker 1:

I think we just are stuck. She loves putting that fan out.

Speaker 2:

We had so much fun.

Speaker 1:

Yeah.

Speaker 2:

I do want to say, like, speaking of wieners and stuff like that, I would like for you to show off your outfit from the Pride Parade. Oh my God.

Speaker 1:

Okay, yeah, I just wanted to, like you know, feel a little pride-y-licious.

Speaker 2:

Now pull the pants down? Well, no, I don't want to do that.

Speaker 1:

That's inappropriate.

Speaker 2:

Oh no, it's not. Oh yeah, it's pretty good right. Yeah, no, there you go.

Speaker 1:

Do you like it? It's really fun.

Speaker 2:

I was the film director today, I know, and it wasn't my day, you know, it was your day.

Speaker 1:

Well, listen, I was definitely more provocative than you. You were being a little bit more, like you know, pride conservative.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, and I'm like a pride supporter, so you know my day's coming, my birthday's almost here.

Speaker 1:

That's right, miss Gemini, your birth month.

Speaker 2:

Well, that's right. It's definitely my birth month. If your birthday is in the month, it's your month.

Speaker 1:

You and that fucking fan. Okay, I love this fan, Like anyone who's ever had like a fan before like it is so much fun oh my god, you are too funny I know you better take it and then she wanted to support pride for me even more, so she decided to okay, so I bought this drink for me it's called prime.

Speaker 2:

It's an energy drink oh, can we crack it where the m is like. Put that D on that. It says pride.

Speaker 1:

Now throw some D's on it, bitch, you're welcome.

Speaker 2:

Energy drink ice pop flavored ooh that reminds me of the 4th of July which is coming up. What are we doing for the 4th of July?

Speaker 1:

we're gonna go to my cousins on the farm. They got a nice barn party. They actually do a full firework show. They might.

Speaker 2:

Well, I did want to go to Oakmont.

Speaker 1:

You do love a nice little river party.

Speaker 2:

Because I want to see Pappy.

Speaker 1:

Like Grandpap John. Yeah, he does love when you call him Pappy. Yeah, he loves blondes.

Speaker 2:

I know, but he married a brunette.

Speaker 1:

Well, he knew that they are smarter, touchΓ©. Yeah, it's getting a little warm right now. I have my mocktail. It is spindrift. We have a mojito, lime, mint, spindrift and you have a nice little wild basin I've got the wild basin what flavors you get strawberry.

Speaker 2:

This kind of reminds me of a camping trip that I, you know, can't experience the way I want to as a mom right now.

Speaker 1:

Eventually Summer is upon us.

Speaker 2:

Summer already started for me just because, like you know, my preschooler is out of school. Now my birthday is June 4th. Ooh, happy birthday, Mixed with Pride Month best month ever. But I always thought I was a summer baby. I know, Come to find out as I get older and more knowledgeable I'm actually a spring baby. But you know, Geminis, they can have it both ways.

Speaker 1:

I like the sound of that. Both ways, twin Flames, both ways, definitely seen a lot of both ways, and even the group behind us. You were a little scared of them, right?

Speaker 2:

We did have a satanic group behind us. Right, we did have a satanic group behind us and I was like really scared, just because I've never seen that type of thing out in real life before only like american horror story and stuff like that. I actually dropped my drink and they were walking up on us and I got so scared I like ran away instead of picking up my drink and one of them picked up my drink and handed it back to me. They ran after me and gave it back oh well, you know what?

Speaker 1:

see, you don't have to be scared. They're there to support the pride group. I mean, if anything, I guess you know the satanic group is going to be more supportive than, like what, the catholic group well, yeah, we did see some hate.

Speaker 2:

We did see some hate yeah, I don't know why we need to make it about religion. It's so stupid. It's like just love who you love exactly.

Speaker 1:

Love is love and you know, love wins always love always wins.

Speaker 2:

Cheers to that cheers.

Speaker 1:

You introduced me to a good song. It's very provocative. I feel like I'm listening to like toby keith or just like any really good country it is.

Speaker 2:

I almost want to, like you know, listen to it. Right now he's bouncing off my booty cheeks. I love the way he rides I can barely breathe while he's pumping deep inside.

Speaker 1:

Oh, you are so good at that. We need miss AP to be here. Alison Park would love that song. Oh yeah.

Speaker 2:

So I would like to say that Costco is not planning to raise their price of their wieners. They will remain. You're so funny, they will remain $1.50.

Speaker 1:

Do you know that there are some people like this woman from Bravo show Southern Charm? Do you know that there are some people like this woman from Bravo's show Southern Charm? She's like this older lady that was married to one of the Morgans from JP Morgan like old money lady. She's like I love Costco hot dogs. I will not give them up, even though I'm eating healthier nowadays. There's two things I will not give up is Costco hot dogs and McDonald's egg McMuffins. Mm yeah.

Speaker 2:

You know, she's got some good taste. Actually, I kind of agree. But there's also people that are like they raised it from $1.50 to, you know, double the price, $3. I'm canceling my Costco membership.

Speaker 1:

You think that people will get like that?

Speaker 2:

Yes, really. Oh, I've met them before. I think their name normally starts with a K and ends with an N. Yeah, I imagine, karen.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, Karen's definitely that type of person that would cancel her membership for the hot dog increase the inflation is real.

Speaker 2:

So Red Lobster has filed for bankruptcy.

Speaker 1:

These are US Red Lobster locations closing after bankruptcy filing. This is from USA Today. Red Lobster filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Florida, listed 87 stores as temporarily closed.

Speaker 2:

So you want to get that lobster and biscuits, baby? Go get it now.

Speaker 1:

I don't know why nobody's going to Red Lobster. Maybe they're just like for the cheddar biscuits isn't big enough because there was a lobster shortage really a few years ago.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, I remember reading about it.

Speaker 1:

I think they were going for the biscuits oh yeah, and the biscuits are unlimited right, you can't risk it for the biscuit anymore so I think that the other thing that kind of threw me was Madonna is getting sued from her LA concert. Yeah, what'd she do? La concert goer suing her because they were not aware that there was going to be pornography, pornography. They were not aware that there was going to be pornography. Why can I not say it Pornography, pornography. In the visuals on the screen? Of course there's some nip and there's some tigelbitty. I mean, there's probably a little like you know kitty, maybe some D.

Speaker 2:

I thought her and Janet Jackson were known for this.

Speaker 1:

So Janet was too.

Speaker 2:

Well, I mean she slipped it at the Super Bowl.

Speaker 1:

That wasn't her intention, so she didn't mean to do that. That was a wardrobe malfunction, I mean maybe it was a publicity stunt. So you're claiming you're like doing a little conspiracy theory.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, I guess I am. Oh, my God.

Speaker 1:

I'm here for it either way.

Speaker 2:

I mean, her nipple did come out. Oh my God, I'm here for it either way.

Speaker 1:

I mean, her nipple did come out. I kind of think it's crazy, though, that like this person is suing her. I guess you know they're really trying to get anybody. Nowadays it's like we live in a litigious society that is really just after any little bit of money that somebody can make on somebody by suing them. Yeah, Don't you think?

Speaker 2:

I feel like this started when we were in high school. I remember the kids in high school being like my dad's suing somebody and I'm like what is that? It sounds kind of trashy.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, it does seem like that.

Speaker 2:

Unless someone really fucked you over and they really owe you, why are we suing anyone?

Speaker 1:

I think it has a lot to do with people are just so desperate to make money well, fucking, get on the pool, get on the stage, honey, like do a little dance yeah, maybe go back to school yeah, those cheeks, oh, you're talking about a strip club? Yeah, it's like, it's not like. But what about for the guys that need to make some?

Speaker 2:

coin. I mean, it's absolutely hard to be a stripper. I'm not discounting that I'm just saying like there's, that's some quick money.

Speaker 1:

That's true, and you sound like you know from experience.

Speaker 2:

So I did want to be a stripper, but my husband did not want me to be.

Speaker 1:

Are you serious?

Speaker 2:

Yeah, you know, we'd first gotten married and we were a little tight on the cashish and I said you know, I'll just go like be a stripper. Like I had a good body, I was in shape, like I was athletic to the point where I could have done some stuff.

Speaker 1:

And you do have that kind of stripper dance, like you mastered that.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, like I do enjoy it. I really do. And I enjoy strip clubs, yeah, so I thought you know, this would be a great place to work, because I do enjoy the environment right but he was not like classy ones um or just any any strip club you know what, maybe like any of them could be good. Like I've actually never been to like a trashy one, maybe I was in south dakota. That was pretty bad oh, I mean you were in south dakota, so can you say that again?

Speaker 2:

you were in south dakota, you're so funny.

Speaker 1:

Well, I mean to be honest with you. It sounds so weird like how we are very similar in that way, like when I moved to la.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, I was working at equinox and then I was like trying to get this dive bar job because it was like a really popular hot dive bar. It was kind of like cash money. You know what I mean. Um, you know. That being said, I said to the manager I was like I really want to get in, even if you need me to be a go-go dancer. And he was like hey, I'm just going to look out for you, buddy, I don't want you to do that. And I was like really why? And he's like because you'll get sucked in, because the money's good, it's easier than bartending, you don't have to schlep all the shit and like, but he can be like. It's kind of like a cycle and then you just kind of get stuck in there and then so like maybe you and me had that same like person just guiding us into the different direction because they were like.

Speaker 1:

I mean your husband. I could see he wouldn't want guys to be at the strip club, being like hey baby, can I get a lap dance Right, yeah?

Speaker 2:

I guess not.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, like I guess you would do it if, like times are really tough.

Speaker 2:

Oh yeah, 100%. I mean, look at Cardi B, though, like she did it, and look where she's at now. I don't think it's a negative thing at all.

Speaker 1:

so I think it bothered me that he thought that it was a negative thing that's why I kind of even think to myself like I mean, what's wrong with, like being a go-go dancer?

Speaker 2:

if you have a talent, use it, and I just feel like I never got to use that talent.

Speaker 1:

But maybe we could still do it yeah, let's do a pop-up yeah, I think that'd be fun. Yeah, we could do like a mocktails or messy moment, like where you're the stripper and I'm the go-go dancer.

Speaker 2:

So like the video and subscribe if you'd like to see that.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, that would be fun.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, that would be fine.

Speaker 1:

You know, with the music, like even today on the pride float, it was like something about the music, the energy, like you could see, it's just like running through my veins yeah, it was so good so good so people loved our stories from college and our shit stories. So I've got one.

Speaker 2:

So when I was visiting you in Penn State, yes, we got a lot of Penn State stories. I was taking a shower and I thought that I had the privacy I deserved and all of a sudden I I didn't have that privacy anymore. Can you tell the people what you did? Yeah?

Speaker 1:

You have a really good memory because I don't know why I thought it was a good idea to just go in.

Speaker 2:

Well, because there was only one bathroom and I had to really go to the bathroom Number two.

Speaker 1:

I had to go number two and so I just went in, popped in there and I went number two and you were taking a shower, trying to get all clean and ready for the evening and I think you were just so disgusted with me You're like I am so fucking grossed out. You were that comfortable. I thought we were different friends, but now we're like siblings.

Speaker 1:

That you feel like that comfortable to just take a shit while I'm taking a shower, trying to get all clean and freshened up for the evening. And I kind of ruined your shower with my I think it's one thing.

Speaker 2:

When you're taking a shower, you're trying to get clean and you want thing. You're wanting that like clean shower smell yeah, and you're getting the nasty shit smell like it doesn't make.

Speaker 1:

It's like counterbalancing it, it's almost like neutralizing, like you're not getting clean but you're not getting dirtier. Right, it's just the scent, yeah. So I mean obviously, we had a good time, yeah, but you were just grossed out with me, but then you were also kind of like impressed with my lack of giving lack of giving a shit to shit in front, literally.

Speaker 1:

Yes, and the confidence and I and I think that's something that I probably had more when I was in college, because you know how, when you're like doing well in school and you're like, you know, aspiring to be like this big time, like engineer or whatever it may be, like some, I don't know, like I was very like on a high and even like doing this bodybuilding competitions, like that was like the first time I ever got like super ripped. So I was feeling myself. So I was like I'm going to take a shit in my bathroom, in my apartment, this girl can deal with it. This girl, this bestie that I got going on.

Speaker 2:

Oh, you don't want to go there.

Speaker 1:

You don't want to go there, you don't want to go there right now.

Speaker 2:

I'm not this girl.

Speaker 1:

You're not just some girl, you're my bestie. And today even felt like it was like coming back to old days, just us acting a fool, twerking on the float, being a little provocative, you know. The less fabric, the better.

Speaker 2:

Definitely after the parade we were on the back and we were like twerking it with our ass out to the traffic and there were definitely a lot of cars behind us and they did not sign up for that, I know. I want to either say you're welcome or I'm sorry to the people behind us.

Speaker 1:

I just want to know what do you think people think about when they see that Like? Do they're like, oh my God, these people are so desperate for attention. Or are they like, oh my god? Thank you for entertaining us.

Speaker 2:

I think some of them are like I don't want to see that, what the hell is wrong with these people? And I think some people are like, okay, they're having a good time.

Speaker 1:

You don't want to see this. I just got to ask you about something that has been on my mind. Yes, I'm a little bit traumatized from oh god netflix baby reindeer oh my god, oh my god what did you think of it?

Speaker 2:

baby reindeer, yeah did.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, did you like it?

Speaker 2:

I loved it. You did. I thought it was so good. I think the traumatizing part was where he got raped.

Speaker 1:

Oh yeah, that was scary.

Speaker 2:

While he was on the acid or tripping on whatever.

Speaker 1:

I had this experience when I was in New York where there was a dude that literally he was the vice president of a consulting group and he was just like, hey, I want you to come bring your friends. I got bottle service at this place in Soho in New York and he was like, let's do, molly. And I was like no, no, no, no, no, no. And he's like if you want me to sign the deal, what are you doing?

Speaker 2:

Keep going.

Speaker 1:

So he's like, if you wanted me to sign the deal, this will definitely help. And I was like God, are you serious? I have to literally whore myself out by doing Molly with this guy. He's like the vice president of this consulting group and I'm just like you know what. At the time I was just thinking, well, you know he is fun and all that stuff. So I took the Molly, threw it in a plant. My gosh, you're not even that interested in this conversation or this story, I think you had some real trauma.

Speaker 1:

Well, just he got so fucked up and so I found him in the bathroom like kind of passed out. Oh my god, this is fucking embarrassing. I couldn't leave him there. So I took him, went into a fucking uber, got him into the uber, took him back to his hotel, tried to find out what his hotel was by the front desk. He was completely on his ass, like so fucked up from the Molly and the champagne, all that stuff. I took him there but I videoed him the whole time because I was like I don't want this to be a lawsuit, like he wakes up dead.

Speaker 2:

Oh that was really smart to do the videoing.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, and then the next day he then moved me 700 get it, baby. I didn't ask for that, it was just he signed the deal. He was like thank you for taking care of me.

Speaker 1:

That was really embarrassing, oh my gosh he's like you must have been able to handle that. It was intense. I said, I said I'm going to be honest with you. You gave it to me. I don't do that stuff. No judgment, like if people want to. I just like I didn't want to do that in like a business situation, or even like I never have done modeling.

Speaker 2:

No, I would have threw that shit in a plant also. Yeah, no, thank you plant also.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, it was just weird, but anyways, that was my little story correlation to like the date rape baby reindeer thing, because I'm like was he just trying to get me to get fucked up? So yeah, and baby reindeer he was just trying to accommodate that writer creative guy to get within his projects.

Speaker 2:

Mm-hmm. Yeah, I just think I love really fucked up shows and the fact that he had a stalker and then fucked her and then he got his sex drive back after fucking her, he wasn't even into her.

Speaker 1:

Wait, he fucked Martha. Yeah, fuck you.

Speaker 2:

just let the cat oh my god, you need to finish, you need to finish crazy ass.

Speaker 1:

Martha was it hot no you know I love those kind of like crazy creeper stalker shows because it does kind of remind me of like this one woman from my childhood like who took us to like a couple open houses like oh my gosh, your nanny yeah, well, she's more of like a babysitter.

Speaker 1:

But yeah, babysitter, okay tell the story of your babysitter and the childhood trauma you have because of it she took us to a couple open houses of these like really massive houses in fox chapel we lived in like a pretty, like nice, cute house not big, not small in O'Hara Township which is like it's nice but it's not like the Fox Chapel, like the fancy part.

Speaker 1:

And so then she took us to a bunch of these open houses, me and my younger brother at the time, and she's like play it off, like, okay, I'm your mom. And then she's like talking to the realtor and she's like, oh yeah, my husband can put his Mercedes in there, and that woman's like you know, fox Chapel School District is a really good public school district and my nanny babysitter was like oh no, no, no, no, they'll be enrolled in Shadyside Academy.

Speaker 2:

So how old were you?

Speaker 1:

I was probably like eight years old. I remember I was in elementary school.

Speaker 2:

So you knew that you were just going along with this and you were old enough to know that she was like kind of lying about everything I don't know. She just wanted to see the houses, clearly, wasn't fulfilled in her life and wanted to live yes, live a different life. Like live vicariously through these like fake situations and these two little cute kids I mean you and your brother were just fucking adorable. I'd freaking steal you too.

Speaker 1:

It was just funny, because I'm like thinking to myself like, wow, this is weird, like an adult likes to play make-believe.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, and so like did you not tell your mom?

Speaker 1:

I think my mom ended up seeing like some kind of pamphlet for the house. The realtor ended up calling my parents' house because my babysitter at the time was like, using that number, she was using my parents' home address, home number number and so the realtor called my parents house and was like hi, this is blah, blah, blah from you know, howard hannah realty we're calling in regards to the house. And then my dad got the message and he was like shit, is my wife like looking to divorce me and like get another house?

Speaker 1:

oh, wow so there was like a whole weird like what's going on? Like why is there a realtor calling our house like are you looking to leave? And like yeah, like behind my back gosh. Yeah, my husband would have a few questions too yeah, so, but I thought another interesting thing that was on my radar. Did you know? Know, from timeoutcom, like the 20 best food cities in the world, number 10 is Portland, oregon.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, Well, I mean, it's one of the bigger cities in the United States, right?

Speaker 1:

Yeah, but I was just thinking in the world like nothing else comes up, oh this is like in the world Right now current food cities like Naples. Italy is number one, which that makes sense.

Speaker 2:

Okay, people do say that Portland Oregon is similar to Europe.

Speaker 1:

Really, I've never been and I've been like it's on my to-do list, my bucket list, to check it out I'd like to go to people compare it to like ireland and stuff like that. It has the big mossy hills um, and there's like a lot of rain, too lots of rain.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, the climate is similar.

Speaker 1:

Seafood I've been wanting to go okay, we might have have to go and visit my sister-in-law.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, I'd love to go. I actually did a 23andMe test and I have some family in Portland.

Speaker 1:

Really, yeah, I just think it's bizarre because New York, LA, Chicago doesn't even come up on the radar. New York City has to be on there right, Not on this top 20 list.

Speaker 2:

Oh really. So where else in the United States is on there?

Speaker 1:

The first city in the world that's on this list Now. This is Time Out magazine of 2024. So, I told you Portland is number 10. And then number 12 is Seville, porto is 14. Oh my God, marrakesh is 15. What did?

Speaker 2:

you say number 1 was. Number 1 was Naples, Italy. Which kind of makes sense.

Speaker 1:

Number 20 is Copenhagen. I wonder about these lists. Maybe they have to submit or whatever. I'm just confused. So you're really only given Portland, and you know America isn't the best when it comes to quality.

Speaker 2:

Sometimes it's actual stats. And sometimes it's submission.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, that makes a good point. I don't know that's interesting. Well, I just thought it was crazy because I'm like wow, that makes sense when it comes down to it. My sister-in-law went to visit me and she was like, hey, we're going to go here to eat and then we're going to do like two dinners here, and she's just like so immersed in the food culture that like new cities, and so it would make sense if she's living in portland, like she's living the high life.

Speaker 2:

So like high life is like having all these different options well, you know, I'm I sure am a foodie, so I get it you know, the french open now is banning alcohol in the stands, so none of the people in the stands. I wonder what happened.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, they had somebody that like spit out gum on a ref, oh, and the fans were just like too outlandish, that's a little much. And they were just getting a little too crazy. So they were like you know what? We're not going to do this anymore, we're going to just ban alcohol.

Speaker 2:

I don't know if that's the answer, but I mean personally, it solves some problems, that's for sure.

Speaker 1:

Can you imagine going to like a Pirates game or a Steelers game, like a football, baseball game and like them, not allowing alcohol?

Speaker 2:

I mean no.

Speaker 1:

It's all about the hot dogs and the beer right yeah, the experience is like you know, they want to get wild, they want to let loose and I do think that I've been able to kind of encourage. Like you know, you can have a placebo effect, buzz, yeah, from having a mocktail. What are you thoughts on that? I mean, you know, miss, know, miss Mindful, misted Drinker.

Speaker 2:

Missy, I really am trying to find balance in the sense where, like, if I'm just trying to have a good time without alcohol, I find myself pounding the seltzers Like it's like, I'm just like slurping them down, and I don't know what I'm searching for actually. So I'm actually trying to figure that out.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, I mean, listen, I do love me some placebo. In fact, I went to the mocktail meetup the other night. It was super fun. Most of the people were like you know what? I just have mocktail nights or I have messy nights, and then they're like I think it's a good balance. We definitely, after the pandemic, got a little crazy Cuckoo, cuckoo for Cuckoo.

Speaker 2:

Puffs. Oh my God. Last weekend we were looking for our friend's party. Yes, it was townhouses. They're all lined up and the house numbers weren't exactly clear.

Speaker 1:

Yeah, they didn't have them listed as much. Yeah, so we actually walked into one, thinking it was our friend's house yeah immediately it was so rancid the smell was like onions and like you could just tell that, like somebody was just done cooking it was like garbage onions though like somebody had thrown onions in the garbage and not taking the garbage out in a long time. Yeah, yeah, good point.

Speaker 2:

It was like rotten it was so stinky and I remember I said to you I'm like, oh, what is that smell? Yes, and we're, we hear a TV. So we kind of walk around the corner TV's going. The house is like messy. Oh God, I'm thinking what is going on here, like I didn't know, unkept.

Speaker 1:

Right, it was like they're usually pretty like clean, yeah, and we clearly walked into the wrong apartment.

Speaker 2:

Yeah, so we walk around the corner. And what did we see, Ryan?

Speaker 1:

We saw an older gentleman, maybe like in his late 50s Mm-hmm, no clothes on, but it was fucking weird. No clothes on, but it was fucking weird. We saw an older gentleman in his late 50s, completely naked, laying on the couch.

Speaker 2:

you immediately screamed and like ran and I could see, like as I was running, he was like he's like, he kind of like woke up so I guess he had fallen asleep watching the tv, he'd kind of woke up.

Speaker 1:

He was looking behind, he's like. He kind of like woke up. So I guess he had fallen asleep watching the tv. He'd kind of woke up.

Speaker 2:

He was looking behind. Yeah, he's like just slowly, like huh and I ran so fucking fast for the door and I guess you ran after me because do you think he saw you?

Speaker 1:

uh, yeah, he definitely saw me. I was just like, oh fuck, it kind of took me a second. I'm like is he really naked laying on the couch? But it was hot. I mean, I guess some people just like to be nude in their home.

Speaker 2:

It was very hot outside yeah. And I was just like waiting for him to run out the house Like I don't know, because, like we intruded, I know, but yeah, I don't know.

Speaker 1:

we got away and yeah, you were just really grossed out by the smell. I think you were like I've seen a lot of nude men in my life I mean, I didn't bargain for it that night, just maybe we should knock next time. But nobody was answering, so maybe we woke him up, the elder gentleman I guess we did.

Speaker 2:

I mean, I think we woke him up when I screamed.

Speaker 1:

That was scary.

Speaker 1:

And then like the rotten onions, just like ew like something about that, like you have to have an exhaust fan or you have to take the trash out every night. I mean, one of the other things I wanted to talk about was this song that I posted to my story. It's called Poison Poison and it's a little bit dark. The lyrics and it just like literally came on the radio the other day and I was thinking about a colleague of mine from the past because I was just so miserable at this job and I was just like God. Like these lyrics are, you know, when you just feel it, it goes through you like a rush?

Speaker 1:

yeah, and so like I popped it on my story because I'm just like one of those people if I find a good song that I really like, spotify makes it so easy to just like share with your instagram story and so I put it on my instagram story. And then somebody replied grow up. I just thought what? And so then me and you were like sitting down having lunch, yeah, and I'm like dissecting it like why would this person say, grow up because of this song?

Speaker 2:

poison, poison and we went through a series of responses. It's like ignore it or say, okay, I will, when you do, I'll grow up. When you grow up, like why why are you?

Speaker 1:

commenting this on a song I like um like I'm pretty grown up, but like I mean, I don't know, am I not like I like had to question it? I'm like what the fuck? And then that was weird and I even remember this person that stated it I was like you know who they were actually. Oh yeah, I know who they are and I realize that that person in the past, like we've all, had a messy past. They have grown up, they have gotten better. So I can't even say grow up when you do.

Speaker 1:

They haven't reached the ending of their journey, then if they're still trying to nitpick other people, yeah, you know yourself when you're in a positive headspace, when you're on a good path, when you're out of a bad relationship, when you're out of a bad city Not that LA was a bad city. I just needed to get myself back to my foundational roots and recalibrate like recalibrate. Now I'm like that song was about my past and my colleague from an old job that I thought like hit nail on the head. But then I realized this person that said grow up. When I posted the story of the song, they were thinking I was talking about something that's currently happening oh my god it's like currently stop getting involved and shit that is not your shit like yeah, stay out of it.

Speaker 1:

Why are?

Speaker 2:

you inserting yourself into something that is not your problem I realize now you can't sweat the small stuff.

Speaker 1:

You got to pick and choose your battles because at the end of the day, like we're happy, we're positive. Yeah, if somebody is going to come into your space like my colleague in the past, that was hard, because I'm locked in this office I can't leave.

Speaker 2:

Like this is a paycheck.

Speaker 1:

That's so scary. Yeah you, you like you. We've all experienced it not everybody.

Speaker 2:

I don't think everyone experiences that people don't have to deal with colleagues like that. Thank you for listening to mocktails are messy this is kelly minskorski and ryanovski. Please subscribe to our channel.
