    Ep 48 - - Please Don't Sit

    Hayoooo! We're here!!! This epi, we discuss Please Don’t Sit on my Bed in Your Outside Clothes by Phoebe Robinson. Check out our Patreon!

    In the episode, we discuss: weird alcohol laws and the liquor store, seeing Phoebe's life grow and evolve through her books, how much we hate U2/Bono yet love Phoebe's love for them, how reliably unreliable we are, the two modes of alpha leader and lazy piece of garbage, inbox zero and all of our email woes, the future generation who mass deletes with no fear, the struggle of meeting Phoebe's goal of matching sets, our cleaning practices at the 2022 point of the COVID pandemic, shoes free households, our very uncomfortable feelings about not loving this book (we're so sorry Phoebe, we love love love you always and forever), and more.

    Olivia drinks: Bud Light seltzer (strawberry flavored!)
    Ashley drinks: Sierra Nevada Wild Little Thing Slightly Sour Ale (guava, hibiscus, and strawberry! STRAWBERRY TWINS!)
