Song of the Summer is coming to a close! Get your votes in because the winner will be announced at the Chateau Ste. Michelle picnic on Thursday. David was on the show to announce the final two songs before heading into the TJ Maxxness madness and give his two weeks' notice. Burbank said that when he worked at Dick's Drive-In no one showed up on their last day and I had a similar experience at a movie theatre I worked at when I was a younger gal. When I showed up on my last day, everyone was surprised and excited I was there. I wish I had known of the tradition and I wouldn't have shown my pale face.

Not really. I would've shown up. I'm honorable.

So when the guys were talking about Song of the Summer, the song Rude by Magic! was discussed. I, like Andrew, had never heard the song before the show but… I kind of like it. I mean, I'd never download it or anything, but it doesn't make me wanna slam my head in a drawer or anything. Of course, my poor music taste is well documented on this here blog. I like 90's country and Indigo Girls. I'm a catch.

And, finally, here's a teaser! Andrew Walsh tells a story about him going skinny dipping. You gotta listen.

I was going to phone this one in, but then Burbank said I was funny or something so now I'm feeling a whole lot of pressure.

I break under pressure.

I'm breaking now.

So Walshtastic came clean about a joke he subconsciously stole from a co-worker and the gents got into a surprisingly short conversation about memories and stories and recall and such. Short is relative when the guys go down a rabbit trail, but the show in its entirety was less than an hour long so that's why I'm saying it was short.

In all serious, though, memories are weird. I had this traumatic experience when I was 4 or 5 where my sister and I went outside to wait for my mom to come home from work and I sat on ant hill. All I remember is seeing one ant, two ants… and then I remember my mom frantically brushing my hair and the bath water running. That's it. That's all I remember. Evidently I survived since I'm telling this non-story here, but I do have a good reason for having a disproportionate fear of bugs and insects of all kinds which is why the fly from Thursday's blog post is still lurking around my house.

So now I'm breaking under pressure and terrified. Sounds a lot like the reality shows Luke's into. But I'm fully clothed.

Confession: I wasn't fully focused on Wednesday's show when I listened to it. I was busy doing three things.

1. Trying to locate our baby monitor… which is still MIA.

2. Building up the courage to kill some giant flying bug… which is still lounging right next to the comfiest part of the couch.

3. Waiting for the food related stories… which never happened.

So tonight was a real winner for me.

There was something about Ikea? Andrew doesn't care for it, and Burbank prefers to buy stuff at surplus stores. Also, Andrew's office is sad and Luke isn't the best furniture maker you'll meet.

That was my takeaway from the show. I'm off to raid the pantry in search of the baby monitor and Reese's.

If you haven't listened to Tuesday's show, here are my 3 pro tips.

1. Don't eat while listening.

2. Don't operate heavy machinery while listening.

3. You may wanna bring some Kleenex.
