Episode Transcript

[00:00:00] Speaker A: Hello everyone. Kim here. On behalf of myself and the book interrupted crew, we just wanted to acknowledge the seriousness of the subject matter of the book what happened to you? By Oprah Winfrey and Dr. Bruce Perry. In an effort to lighten the burden of some of the load that could come from reading such a heavy content novel, we have attempted to create a situation where we can share a laugh with each other as well as laugh at ourselves.

[00:01:40] Speaker E: Oh my God. [00:01:40] Speaker F: What am I going to do? [00:01:41] Speaker E: She's going to get angry. [00:01:46] Speaker A: You're a legend. [00:01:49] Speaker E: Totally.

[00:02:19] Speaker D: Welcome to Book Interrupted, a book club for busy people to connect and one that celebrates life's interruptions. [00:02:26] Speaker F: Hold on to your bookmarks. Book interrupted is off the shelf. [00:02:30] Speaker D: Let's listen in to this episode's group discussion. [00:02:34] Speaker E: This episode of off the shelf. [00:02:36] Speaker D: What we're doing is everyone's going to share a funny what happened to them. [00:02:40] Speaker E: Just to lighten this book cycle a bit, something funny, maybe embarrassing that happened to them, and we'll share some stories. [00:02:48] Speaker A: Also, weren't we going to offer the option of a tarot card if you didn't want to do ready to go? For me, it was really hard to come up with something. I don't know if I've erased all embarrassing memories or I just never do anything embarrassing. So I'm hoping that when other people start talking, I'll come up with one. That was my kind of plan and I have kind of one that's not even anything like, I don't even think it's good, but I wanted to come with something. So if for some reason you have a hard time coming up with something, or if you would rather not share about what happened to you, then you could choose to have a tarot card drawn and we can find out what will happen to you. [00:03:24] Speaker E: Maybe that's fun. Maybe I want. [00:03:26] Speaker B: I know. [00:03:28] Speaker E: That's fine. [00:03:29] Speaker A: Tell your story and then draw your card. That's cool. [00:03:31] Speaker B: And also just to point out, because I think all six of us are aware, but for anyone who is listening or watching, this is not an attempt to try to make light of trauma on any means whatsoever. It's more just an acknowledgment that by being a human being, you inevitably are going to have adverse experiences, challenges, big t trauma, little t trauma. Like any combination or variation, we are all impacted by things that happen to us in our lives. And this is just a way to have a laugh about it, because you can so easily start to sink down, have things go awry. Trauma is not a laughable matter. This is us really just trying to have fun with the fact that we're celebrating being a human. And sometimes funny shit can happen. [00:04:23] Speaker E: Yeah. LAUghtER is the best medicine sometimes, isn't it? [00:04:26] Speaker B: Yeah. [00:04:27] Speaker E: I felt a little like him where I was like, maybe I'm just not easily embarrassed, but I think I might have come up with some stuff. [00:04:34] Speaker B: Well, who wants to go first? [00:04:36] Speaker E: I could go first if you want. I have lots. I have many. I know. I love your story. Good stories. Some of my best stories are about Sarah. I was going to say, you can just jump in on this one if you'd like, because you witnessed it. Here's my story. When I was a teenager, I don't know, maybe I was like 16, maybe 17 or something. I quickly leaned over to blow out a candle I had burning in my room. And as you would do, you blow. But I was running out to go do something. I blew too hard. The wax in the candle literally scooped up and landed on my eyeballs and then dried and then dried. It burned my eyeballs. I screamed, clearly, because it was extremely painful, and then ran around the room and shot. You threw your arms up in the air. You went to blow. You're like, meredith was in the hallway waiting for me. I ran around my room and then ran out the door. But because I was blinded, I hit this edge of the door right in the head and then flung back onto my bed, spread eagle and then Meredith, instead of getting my mother to help because she witnessed the whole thing burst out laughing. It was on the floor crying so hard. She was laughing. How did that happen? What happened? She couldn't answer me, though. She's like, on the bed going, she's got a goose egg. Her eyes are burnt. Everything was so calm at first. And then all of a sudden, the screaming, the running around, hitting the door, falling back. It's like, what happened? I'm still laughing at it. Then my mom eventually came up, and I was able to communicate to her that I have wax on my eyes. She rushed me to emergency. Bob was also trying to stifle a laugh because, like, how does this happen to you? I had a big bump on my forehead, and she was like, what was this? Oh, my God. Anyway, so then my mom took me to emergency, and they carefully peeled the wax off my eyeballs and let my mom to know how lucky I was that it didn't cause any permanent damage. And gave me some drops, and I was good to go. [00:07:14] Speaker B: Wow. [00:07:15] Speaker E: How did they peel it off? Very carefully. They kind of look like qtips, but a bit different. So did you have to literally look at them? [00:07:26] Speaker B: Do it. [00:07:28] Speaker E: Something holding my eye open. Were they able to access it? [00:07:36] Speaker B: With the size of your goose egg. [00:07:39] Speaker E: Protruding in the way, yeah. Run into the door this way also. Where was she going? Going to run down the hallway. She's, like, getting out of there. She's in flight, right? She's panicking. Was she going to run down the stairs with no eyesight? I don't know. [00:07:59] Speaker B: You're definitely a flight shock. [00:08:02] Speaker E: Anytime I've had shock, I always go, you're always in flight? And I go into freeze, and then you look at me like, what are you doing? Anyway, so that's what happened to me. They got the wax off. They gave me drops. It was nothing. But now anytime I blow out a candle, like, even the kids are like, can we blow up the handles? I'm like, kids, wait. Just carefully, don't slow down. It goes right. [00:08:33] Speaker B: Clearly it does. [00:08:35] Speaker E: Cross it. [00:08:36] Speaker F: So do you still react this way during. If something like that happened now, would you still run around and go like that? [00:08:43] Speaker E: Oh, I'm sure, yeah. [00:08:44] Speaker A: Really? [00:08:45] Speaker B: Always flight. She is flight. [00:08:47] Speaker F: Oh, my gosh. I go to super adrenaline, like, okay, this is what we need to do, and this is what we need to do. And, like, let's organize everything so everything's fine. So I'm glad. Well, if you and I are in a. We're probably good together. [00:09:00] Speaker A: If you can catch. [00:09:05] Speaker E: Know, that's. That's another funny one because one time Sarah got really hurt and she was full flight and running around, and my mom grabbed her and threw her to the ground because she had to stop her. How else do you stop her? She's very fast. She is. She's very fast. Nimble. I remember that was the bike one mom had to tackle you to get you down to the ground so she could take you to the hospital. That's when a bike went off a ramp and landed on top of me. And I was playing tennis, and I had a tennis racket in my hand. [00:09:37] Speaker A: Where was this ramp and tennis court where we didn't see the potential for. [00:09:41] Speaker E: Danger because we were just playing on the road. And then. So the ramp on the road, it was Steve went off the ramp, BMX bike, and then landed me, and I called him out. I know, right on the Internet, someone. [00:09:55] Speaker B: Still holding a. [00:09:58] Speaker E: Was. I'll just say, steve, sorry. And, yeah, he landed on top of me and then had a really painful thing happen because I was cut up and stuff. But my bleeding. No biggie. Blood and running with blood coming out. That's why she had to tackle you. She's like, she's bleeding and she's running. Like, we got to slow her down and put pressure. The worst part of that one was because I was holding a tennis racket. The tennis racket hit the curb, and so my wrist didn't actually break or fracture. And the doctor said he's only seen these in textbooks, but my wrist actually buckled. So it's bending, but it hasn't snapped yet, which is really painful. So he's like, I can put this thing, and we're just going to hope it's going to relax on its own. That was the worst part of that one. Thank goodness. That was the worst part. We could keep on going. We can go on and on. We'll have one whole episode for Sarah's. [00:10:57] Speaker B: Honestly. [00:10:58] Speaker E: Yes. Oh, my goodness. Anyway, that could be a segment. That could be a blog day where you just, like, write, what happened to Sarah. Sarah and our family's so mean because, I don't know, we just can't help but laugh. It's not just you. We like laughing. Anyone gets hurt, anyone in the family, we like laughing about it. I guess that's how we deal. Yeah. Your brother has some good. Like, I don't know how. I must know. Just by. We all care, I guess, about the. When he never used shampoo. He only used conditioner or something. Yeah. You didn't know? Yeah, he finally washed it, and it was, like, with soap and all the. [00:11:42] Speaker A: Gut came out, and then it was just, like, beautiful. [00:11:49] Speaker E: Yeah. He does stuff, like, doesn't get hurt, but doesn't quite understand the process. Oh, wait. Before we move on, do you want to do a tarot card? I'm really excited about this card. I guess. Do it. Sarah, you don't have to have a tarot card if you don't want one. Just say no. Great. [00:12:08] Speaker A: I love them. [00:12:09] Speaker E: Okay. Your tone was. [00:12:15] Speaker A: So I'll shuffle them, and then when Sarah says, stop, I'll just take the one that's on the top, and we'll see what the message for Sarah is. Okay, starting shuffling now. [00:12:28] Speaker E: Stop. [00:12:29] Speaker A: Okay, we have the page of. So page of pentacles. [00:12:37] Speaker E: Let me think about this. Okay. Yes, it's vague pages. [00:12:42] Speaker A: I don't like pages, and I don't really like nights because they're difficult to interpret, not because they are bad things. Pentacles have to do with tangible stuff, like money or your house. Yeah, just tangible things. It's a feminine one, so there's, like, feminine and masculine, and the other feminine one is cups, but the cups is, like, intangible because it's, like feelings and relationships and communication. So pentacles is still feminine in that realm, but it's more tangible stuff. The other way that pentacles can be interpreted is with your self worth. So it kind of crosses both realms there where it's tangible, intangible. And the page usually is about a young person. So you could have a young person come into your life that has some, I guess, pentacle energy. Maybe they'll present you with opportunities to make money, or maybe getting in touch with your inner child can increase your self esteem. There's a whole bunch of different ways to kind of interpret this card. It's hard when it's not in the context of other things, but I'm going to say right now, because I try to listen to what I think and feel while I'm talking. It's kind of how I do the tarot. So I should have preempted this. I babble until I come to a point where I'm like, that feels right. So it's up to Sarah if it's going to be her truth or not. But page of pentacles, I am going with that inner child, getting in touch to meet all of those goals, whether it's self esteem, monetary stuff, whatever. And it's like a youthful energy. So the knights are a little bit older as, like, an adolescent energy, a little bit more strong willed and have a direction and maybe rebellious, but the page is younger than that. So it's kind of like inner child stuff, like getting back in touch with that innocence, like leap of faith stuff, naivete, things like that. So how that's going to turn out or work out, we shall see, I suppose. [00:14:45] Speaker E: Okay, thanks. So this could totally be a segment. It's like, what happened to Sarah and co host KJ does and what will happen to you. Yeah, this is actually segment. [00:15:03] Speaker A: Yeah. What will happen or where you should focus your energy. [00:15:07] Speaker E: Yeah. So it's like she tells a story, and then you pull a card and tell her what will happen to her. Just spitballing here, guys. I'm just glad it wasn't the page of candles. [00:15:21] Speaker B: Thank goodness. [00:15:23] Speaker E: That would have been funny, though, because. [00:15:24] Speaker A: There is wands, and wands have the fire. [00:15:27] Speaker E: Yeah, there could have been a wand. Would have been sick. Meredith, what happened to you? [00:15:34] Speaker A: Does as many things happen to you. [00:15:36] Speaker E: As your sister and brother? No. Short answer. No. Short answer. No. I was trying to think of things that, like, I don't think I'm easily embarrassed. So I was trying to think of embarrassing things, like, I've woken up naked on the floor a lot because of epilepsy. So I was like, well, maybe it was embarrassing when in residence, somebody came into my roommate's room and said, hey, because we were across from the bathroom, there's, like, a naked girl on the floor in the bathroom because I'd had a seizure in the shower. And she was like, oh, that's Meredith. She probably had a seizure, and she went in, like. But I was not embarrassed by that. I think. [00:16:14] Speaker A: Shouldn't be right? [00:16:15] Speaker E: But also that somebody. I don't know if it was a coed bathroom. I don't like that somebody found me lying naked on the ground. Didn't bother me at all. Right. So then I was thinking of, here's something. It's not really something that happened to me, per se, but I had a dog, and she was very dominant, and she traumatized lots of people. So she was, like, very dominant, very hard to train and stuff, but she was very well trained. But she didn't like to listen to other people, other than, say, me or my husband. And so there are a lot of stories with her. Like, my brother in law came to visit, and my husband and I were both going to work, and he was going to go to the airport, and he said, okay, well, before you leave, if you could just let the dog out and then put her back in before you go to the airport. That'd be great. So she could go pee. He's like, sure. So he lets her out, and then she won't come back in, and she's just sitting in the middle of the backyard waiting for him. And so he's like, okay. So he goes out there, and he comes out, and she attacks him. And he had to pull her into the house while she was biting his arm. Like she was a puppy, right. [00:17:19] Speaker A: And she's not like a violent attacker. She's like a big glute. [00:17:22] Speaker E: No, she thinks it's fun. But she was a puppy, and she was very strong. Like, when she was full grown, she was, like, 150 pounds. So she was very, very strong, and so she thought she was playing. But it's terrifying when a dog that size is playing with her mouth. And so he had to pull her into the house. We should also mention that she's a great Dane. Yes. Okay, so there's more than one story for attacking him. So he managed to get her into the house, get her in her crate, and he went off to the airport. We heard about it later about her fully attacking him. And then Sarah was visiting when she was a puppy, and Dan and I went to go play ultimate frisbee. Sarah's like, oh, I'll just take the dog for a walk. And like, are you like, she's kind of big, and sarah's not. She doesn't really like big dogs. And I was pregnant too. She's pregnant. She's like, oh, I'm sure I'll be fine. Because Ripley was fine. Mostly when I was there, I wouldn't let her get away with. So I'm doing the ultimate frisbee is at night, and there's these big lights for the field, but around outside the light, you couldn't see very. And so I'm sitting there, and I look around, I realize I can't see Sarah, and I go, oh, no, where's Sarah? And I'm like, oh, no. He's walking her just fine. She leads her out of the light into the forest, and then what happens? The dog turns and went with her big, sharp puppy teeth, and she attacked. Like, when I see attack, she's playing, but she's like, it feels like an attack because she's so big, and her puppy teeth are so sharp, and so she's like, oh, no. She's calling, but nobody can hear her. And she's in the dark. She's just outside the light envelope. So I was like, when I look around. It's like, oh, no. Where's Sarah Ripley? I knew something had happened, that the dog had done something, because she was so smart and just terrible. And so Sarah. I go back to the car. Sarah has managed to grab the leash and drag the dog to the car and get her in. And I was like, sarah, you should just have left the dog. You don't have to put up with that. She's like, it's okay. I got her into the car. She was pretty shaken, that dog. I mean, one of my favorite videos of her is a really small pup is her playing tug with my mom, and she bit my mom while she was doing it. My mom's like, well, now I got to stop now because I'm bleeding. She was just, like, strong. And Kim used to live with us, and she would, like, back then, kim used to smoke, and she would walk in, find her cigarettes, bite the pack in half, and then drop it on the floor and then walk away and wait for Kim to find it. And she would be so eager, like she's going to get angry. Oh, my God, that dog. She was a handful, but as an older dog, she was fine. [00:20:21] Speaker A: Okay, so whenever you are ready, mary, I will take the top card when you say stop. Okay. Page of pentacles. Just kidding. You got justice, which is very cool. So I don't know if you have any legal issues, but this is a sign that they'll be okay, because it was upright, too. It wasn't upside down. Things to think about with this card. I always get this card confused with judgment. So I'm kind of just taking a minute to remember where I'm at. [00:21:02] Speaker E: Okay. [00:21:02] Speaker A: So it's about being balanced and also, like, the floor. You see how the floor is, like, black and white, and there's a sword, and there's these pillars, right? So these are some highlights from this card. So the pillars are symbolizing the intent to be balanced. Right. And stable and set up. Like, there's a set of laws that we follow because they want to keep order or whatever. The black and whiteness, like, on the floor, talks about how the law can be very black and white, or justice can be very black and white. But also this card reminds you that in life, there is gray. So one of the lessons or information you can take from this card is to check yourself and make sure you're not being too black and white, when maybe you should observe some grayness, if that's possible. And it's always complicated like this, too, or the opposite is true. You're too stuck in gray. And really, the issue is black or white. The sword is a masculine energy, and swords usually mean, like, clarity of thought and conflict. So with this card could come conflict, or you could be, like, the resolver of conflict. You could be the fair mind that is able to manage the conflict before you in a fair way. Maybe you're black and white about it, and it's like, this is just the fact, and that is just and fair. This card isn't unfair. So regardless of how this card shows up for you, it's always in the spirit of fairness or in the actual accomplishing of fairness, because it's justice. I would encourage you to look up the owl to see what symbolism you can find out about that. I don't have a wealth of knowledge on that symbolism, but it's about being balanced and fair and clear in thought. So there's not a lot of emotion, I guess, too. That's a notable thing about swords and the card of justice. It's like the absence of that. Not that that's bad or anything. It's just this is heavy on that non emotional side, on that traditionally masculine side. That's what that clarity of thought is. And that's where often the conflict can come into play because you're so clear that people who don't agree, it's inevitably a clash. Okay. [00:23:15] Speaker B: Is what brings about the black or white or the binary sort of thinking. I think the owl is the balance to that because the owl is the feminine, the wise, the subconscious, the dark, the looking beneath the surface sort of thing. [00:23:28] Speaker A: I like that because that is true of any animal. It speaks to instincts. [00:23:32] Speaker E: Right. [00:23:33] Speaker A: And like your internal kind of nature. Or nature. [00:23:40] Speaker B: When I do justice, I always think of the scales. [00:23:43] Speaker A: That's right. The scales, they're there. [00:23:46] Speaker E: So it is. [00:23:46] Speaker A: It's about balance and evenness and fairness and whatever. You could also feel like you're not being treated fairly. So you might have a year of doling out justice or you might have a year of receiving justice. You might feel like you're doing it well, or you might feel like it's not being done well for you. It's hard with, again, one card. There's a whole bunch of different potential routes it can go off of. But legal is a definite theme. Yeah. The balance and the settling of disputes, though. Right? That's kind of the nutshell. And this is a major Arcana card. So it's kind of a more powerful card than just a minor Arcana card. [00:24:22] Speaker E: What a fun word. Arcana card. Sorry that I brought you into the trauma. But I was thinking my dog traumatized a lot of people. No, that's fine. The list goes on and on, and we're thinking about getting a puppy. And I was like, remember how bad that was? We're hoping they'll give us a more docile one because we. [00:24:40] Speaker A: Yeah, you never know. Everyone's. Or, like, all the animals have different personalities or whatever, temperaments. [00:24:46] Speaker E: Yeah. Our breeder told us she was going to give us, like, a dominant one because we didn't have kids. [00:24:52] Speaker F: I can go next if you want. [00:24:54] Speaker E: Okay. [00:24:55] Speaker F: So my story is, it was Christmas time and back. This is when I lived in a house in Burlington, and we had this giant cathedral ceiling kind of in the back part of the house. And it was kind of an open concept. So you had the living room was there, and then the kitchen was there, and there was, like, this little kind of island thing that came out that divided them. And then the dining room, like, everything was kind of open. And in the cathedral ceiling. Every year, my dad would get this giant, like, 14 foot Christmas tree, and it was gorgeous. And we decorate it, and sometimes it was so big you had to tie it up, and sometimes you would just leave it or whatever. So this was one of those years when it hadn't been tied up yet and my mom was in the kitchen, and so I would have been maybe a teenager at the time, and my mom's in the kitchen maybe on the phone or I don't know what she's doing something in the kitchen. And I'm walking by, and the tree had just been decorated. It was beautiful. And I start to notice it coming towards me, and I'm like, oh, my God. Oh, my God, what am I going to do? So, of course, the instinct, unlike Sarah, to run around, whatever, I'm like, I. [00:25:57] Speaker E: Have to fix this. [00:25:58] Speaker F: So I go to run to get the 14 foot tree, and the 14 foot tree is falling on me, and I'm like this. I'm like, mom, mom, you've got to help me. [00:26:07] Speaker A: Whatever. [00:26:08] Speaker F: And so she looks. And this is my mom for you. And she, of course, like, meredith just starts laughing. Just starts laughing at me. [00:26:16] Speaker A: Hold this tree up. [00:26:17] Speaker F: And the tree's falling more and more, and the ornaments are going everywhere, and it's like, hitting the side of the. And to this day, my mom still talks about how funny it was that she stood there and laughed at me while the tree fell on me. And then eventually we picked it up. [00:26:30] Speaker E: And it was fine. [00:26:31] Speaker F: But it was one of those stories that stays. I mean, it wasn't traumatic by any means, but it's. [00:26:38] Speaker E: No, but it's so sweet. Yeah. Representation of my rescue. I bet every time you see a big tree, you kind of, like, eye it. Like, is that attached? [00:26:49] Speaker F: Yeah, my dad tied it up after that. [00:26:52] Speaker E: Yeah, that was when the starting of the tying up happened. [00:26:56] Speaker F: Might have been, but anyways, that's my little story. [00:26:59] Speaker B: Oh, my gosh. [00:27:01] Speaker E: You like a tarot card? [00:27:03] Speaker F: I would like a tarot card. [00:27:04] Speaker E: Yes, please. [00:27:05] Speaker C: Are there Christmas trees in her future? [00:27:08] Speaker E: Yeah, maybe. [00:27:10] Speaker F: Well, not just past Christmas, but it's past Christmas. Is Kim doing okay? [00:27:14] Speaker E: Stop. Ooh. Two of cups. [00:27:17] Speaker A: So this is good. [00:27:20] Speaker F: Two of cups. [00:27:21] Speaker E: Ooh, it's pretty. He's wearing a merkin. A robe. [00:27:27] Speaker A: Mercant. Like I said before, cups is like communication, relationships, emotions, feelings. So a lot of that intangible feminine energy, numerically speaking. The two of any suit is usually the doubling of the one, obviously, but it's like an intensifying of the intention of the power or whatever. So for this, this is like a new relationship or a strengthening of your current relationship. It doesn't have to be a romantic relationship in this story. It's psyche and eros. It's a really good story about coming to a relationship whole, so that you make a good relationship. Like, they don't come whole in the beginning, so that they require things of each other that you shouldn't have to give in a relationship in order to make it work. And through their story, because the story happens from one to ten, they learn the lessons and end up having a happy ending. But this is the very beginning. So this is right before their first kind of union, which is lusty. Their first union is, like, intense and instinctual, and they don't even really know each other and whatever. So this definitely signifies the start of something and in a relationship capacity. The other thing that we can say about this, too, is it could be a relationship with yourself, because that's, like, one of the themes of this story, too, is that through your relationship with the other, you complete yourself. What else can I say about this card? It's the beginning of a cycle, right? Because it's a two. If we were closer to a nine or a ten, it would be the ending of a cycle. So I am interested to see how this plays out for you, whether it's, like your partner specific or if it's something else. I mean, this story is a romantic story, but it doesn't have to be. It could be a business partner or whatever. Some kind of pairing, though, like there's going to be another person involved or like two halves of your whole. [00:29:30] Speaker E: What a great card. [00:29:31] Speaker F: I'm excited for what will happen to me. [00:29:34] Speaker A: Yeah. [00:29:35] Speaker E: Cool. Thank you. Not a Christmas tree insight. No Christmas tree. The merging of the human with the Christmas tree. Yeah. [00:29:45] Speaker D: This interruption is brought to you by unpublished. Do you want to know more about the members in book interrupted? Go behind the scenes, visit our [email protected]. [00:29:58] Speaker A: Book interrupted. [00:30:01] Speaker C: The latest interruption is, have you seen my husband? We are on seven days now of nonstop snowfall, and although it looks like a beautiful white blanket of snow, it is negative 30, so you can't do anything. And my husband does snow removal in the winter, and I'm pretty sure he's transformed into a snowman. We literally haven't seen him for a week. He's been working so hard, and my heart just goes out to him and his crew. Like those labor intensive jobs here I do, just sit at a computer all day or meet with people and oh, man, I wouldn't even last a minute out there working in such frigid temperatures with so much snow, nonstop, intermittent meals and naps. It's crazy. So if you have seen my husband, he is about six foot, 2185 pounds, and he may very well look like Frosty the snowman at this point in time. Please send him home and tell Jack Frost to stop snowing. [00:31:08] Speaker A: Book interrupted. Okay, I'll tell you one I want to just say, like, remember that time? Because this isn't really a thing, but I don't know why I remembered it when Sarah and Meredith were telling their stories, but remember that time we were at some kind of a party or get together at Sarah's house, mare, and in Toronto, and we were talking to each other and I picked up a. [00:31:27] Speaker E: Cherry tomato to eat and it squirted right in your. I love that. [00:31:34] Speaker A: Like, it's not anything too crazy. That's like the end of the story, but literally put it in my mouth and we're talking and we're like, I don't know, 2ft away from each other, like, not even. And I never crossed my mind that that could happen. And it burst with such power that. [00:31:50] Speaker E: It came out of my mouth and spot onto her face like a cartoon. How did it go that far? Yeah, power of a tomato. Did you laugh? Of course, yes. She threw my eyes. Hospital visit? No, it was fine. It was a bit of an interruption. [00:32:18] Speaker A: To whatever we were talking about. [00:32:19] Speaker E: Totally. That's totally, like, stopped the conversation. [00:32:23] Speaker A: She was just so surprised to have. [00:32:27] Speaker E: The front row seat to her reception of being sprayed with tomato. Totally fun. [00:32:34] Speaker A: So that's not really my embarrassing thing. Okay. So the only thing I could think of is one time I was riding my bike. And actually, this is embarrassing for two things. Because of my rage and then because of my mom's MacGyver ability to hook me up with bandaids. So I was riding my bike, and you know how I don't like noises, right? Like clicking or chewing or whatever. [00:32:57] Speaker E: Right. [00:32:58] Speaker A: So there was a twig in my tire, so it was, like, clicking every time it went around and I couldn't figure out what it was. And I was riding my bike. And so rather than get off and investigate, I just started kicking at my front tire. [00:33:08] Speaker E: Like, fuck this. And I was super bad. [00:33:11] Speaker A: So it kicked my tire hard enough that my foot went in between the spokes and was stuck. So then it rolled with the tire around to the forks, which caused me to shoot over the handlebars. [00:33:22] Speaker E: So I landed on the road on my elbows. [00:33:26] Speaker A: Right. [00:33:27] Speaker E: That was where the main. [00:33:28] Speaker A: I wonder if you could see any scars, like long discolorations. So that's embarrassing that I behaved that way and that was the result. But then I was, like, cried my way home. And then my mom didn't have any bandaids, so she put maxi pads on my elbows. [00:33:45] Speaker E: I remember that. I was, like, ingenious. Yeah. Really? [00:33:52] Speaker A: It was, yeah. So I guess that'll be my what happened to you? Moment. [00:33:56] Speaker B: So did you just walk around with maxi pads? [00:33:59] Speaker E: I mean, I. [00:34:01] Speaker A: For a moment. You know what I mean? I don't think I had to go to school the next day. [00:34:07] Speaker E: That would be traumatizing. Yeah, if she wanted you to. I could see her making you being like, oh, don't be so stupid, Kimberly. [00:34:16] Speaker A: Yeah, she probably did have some expectation. That was outrageous. What's the problem, Kimberly? But it was at that age when it was, like, embarrassing to talk about periods. I don't even know if I had my period yet or not. I can't remember on a timeline, but it was, like, not cool like it is now to put maxi pads on your. [00:34:43] Speaker B: Well, we got to find out what's in your future. Are you going to pull your own card? [00:34:47] Speaker A: Yeah. Okay, I'll do my own card. [00:34:49] Speaker E: What's going to happen to you? Are there pads in your future? Pads see? Pads in your future? [00:34:54] Speaker A: Yeah, I got the four of pads. Okay, let's see the three of pentacles. [00:35:01] Speaker E: That's a great card. [00:35:02] Speaker A: I like it, too. It's hard to. There we go. [00:35:05] Speaker B: I always think of, like, coins and material possessions with pentacles. [00:35:10] Speaker A: Yeah, totally. [00:35:11] Speaker B: Yeah. [00:35:12] Speaker A: So threes are good because they represent, like, the initial completion of something. And so there is a cause for celebration with a three, which is great, but there's also lots of hard work to come because you're not at a ten. [00:35:25] Speaker E: Right. [00:35:26] Speaker A: So every card is like a cycle. So because the one is the initial, the very beginning, like, the whiff of whatever that card's energy is, the two is the doubling of that energy, where there's, like, a focus and an understanding of what's going on. And then the three is like an initial completion, like a preliminary, I guess, completion of whatever was the focus of the two. So there's a cause for celebration. Oh, yes. I accomplished whatever. And then on you go to the ten. So in the middle, there's obviously a conflict and a challenge. But as the three card, it's the story of Daedalus, who's, like, an inventor, and he has created something and he is receiving recognition for it. [00:36:08] Speaker E: This is great. [00:36:08] Speaker A: Yeah, I like it. I might feel recognized for whatever, and I may or may not have created it, because for me, it's speaking to me, maybe in my job, because that tangible money, often the self worth is attached to the identity that you feel like you get from the work that you do. So sometimes this kind of card, not this one, but pentacles will come up when you lose a job and you're struggling to not feel like you're somehow a failure because you were attached to your job. Right. Like, your job meant you were worthy anyways. But for me, this is a card of celebration and reward and recognition, and I feel like I'm getting there with my job and embracing it more and getting more comfortable in my role. So that would be what this kind of means to me. And there's more hard work ahead, which is totally true, too, because it's not like I'm like. And I'm done. Thank you very much, everybody. Give me a raise and I'll be whatever. So that's kind of what this means to me. And there's multiple layers, too, because my self worth is affected by that, because you come in like me personally, I'm sure we all have this, like, impostor syndrome. Should I be doing this job or all of those versions of whatever? Right? And so this is a nice card to see for myself, because it gives me that reassurance that I can't give myself as I suffer from imposter syndrome. So that's all I'll say about that awesome. [00:37:29] Speaker E: Yay. Okay, celebrate. [00:37:32] Speaker B: Yeah. Leah, do you want to go or do you want me to go? [00:37:35] Speaker E: I don't care. [00:37:36] Speaker B: I'm good. [00:37:37] Speaker E: Okay, leah. Okay. One easy one. That was traumatizing for everybody there, I'm sure. And embarrassing for me is, as you may or may not know, in my twenty s, I was a bit of a party girl. And when I'm hungover, there's, like, very specific things I want to ingest in the morning to make myself right. One of them is black coffee. It's all liquids. One of them is Diet Coke, and one of them used to be chocolate milk. [00:38:12] Speaker B: I know Diet Coke 100%. [00:38:15] Speaker A: It's got some kind of a hangover. It's that aspartame or something like it saves your day. [00:38:21] Speaker E: Yeah, it does. So I would always, when hungover, which I was often, get to work, get to the Tim Hortons across the street and get chocolate milk, which I would ingest first. Then the black coffee, then the cold Diet Coke. I don't know, it just worked for me. So late for work, of course. Me and my boyfriend are taking the bus. We hit the Tim Hortons, struggling. I'm pretty struggling. And I'm at the counter, and they're bringing everything. They bring the milk first. [00:38:50] Speaker B: And I'm dying thirsty. And I. [00:38:54] Speaker E: Get the milk, crack it open, start slugging it back, and as. [00:38:58] Speaker A: Soon as it hits my stomach, I. [00:39:00] Speaker B: Realize this is completely curdled chocolate milk. [00:39:04] Speaker E: And I immediately start throwing it up and just throwing up all over Tim Hortons. Everybody in the line just goes, boosh. Like, joust back because it's spraying everywhere in everyone's feet. And I'm just not only puke it up, but then continue to dry heap of empty. So it's like I can't just recover because I'm physically, like, my stomach still doing the thing. My boyfriend, I don't even know where he is. He's probably like, I don't know her. I just wanted to throw the blank anywhere you gave me rotten, just like, it's a lady. And it's like, I don't know. It was probably her first. It was everywhere. And, you know, chocolate milk is, like, kind of pinky purple. So I ran away. I do that. Yeah, I did this, and then, whatever. The day goes by, and I live to see another day. And a week later, I'm talking to Bobby. Kara's husband calls me to tell me how he heard from another person, because I had told them the story of what happened, and he heard about it from someone who was at that Tim Hortons. And they were like, ew, the grossest thing happened to me. I was at Tim Hortons in this girl book and threw chocolate milk everywhere. [00:40:45] Speaker A: You're a legend. [00:40:47] Speaker E: He was like, that's my. Totally. [00:40:54] Speaker B: We always in our family will check chocolate milk. [00:40:59] Speaker E: Well, I don't drink it anymore after that. That was the last time. Never had it since. [00:41:03] Speaker A: That was my question. Like, have you ever been able to. [00:41:06] Speaker E: Never had it since. [00:41:08] Speaker B: And for some reason, Bob would always. [00:41:10] Speaker E: Find out about my shenanigans, my drunk, know, impounded cars and whatnot. Not from drunk driving, from being somewhere and making the bright judgment call of leaving cars or my know, he'd find out. He'd be like, my cop friend. He called and aren't you. Isn't your girlfriend a McBean? He's like, no, it's her sister. [00:41:36] Speaker F: He already knew it was you. He's like, oh, it can't be Kara. [00:41:39] Speaker E: Like, he knows it wasn't Kara because. [00:41:41] Speaker B: He grew up all in the Simcoe, London. [00:41:47] Speaker E: He knows a lot of people. [00:41:48] Speaker B: And he too was a partier and knows lots of people. [00:41:52] Speaker E: There's only two mcBeans. There's only two mcBean. So they found us. So that was that story. And. Oh, my gosh. [00:42:01] Speaker A: Hold on, I'm starting to shuffle. Okay, tune in. Pick your time. [00:42:07] Speaker E: Stop. This is a great. [00:42:11] Speaker A: This is another major Arcana. This is the high priestess, and I'm really good with this one. [00:42:20] Speaker B: I love high priestess. [00:42:22] Speaker A: That is a pomegranate that she has in her hand. This is. What's her name? [00:42:28] Speaker E: Persephone. [00:42:29] Speaker A: Yeah, this is Persephone, the daughter, Demeter's daughter. So she's going downstairs, you see? So she's going to the. Whatever you call the underrealm. What's this symbolic of? Is like going inside yourself, developing your own intuition, getting in touch with your inner knowing. This is about a really instinctual, independent, personal deep dive inside yourself. It's a journey of growth that's right. Through getting to know yourself, but through getting to know yourself on that knowing level, that through the tarot. Anyways, claims that exists in all of us. It's getting in touch with that inner. It's like Glennon Doyle sitting in the closet, right? It's like an exercise in that. That pomegranate symbolizes knowledge. She ate that. And that's why she has to go to the dark side. She's like, in the know now. She can't unknow what she knows or whatever. But yeah, this is about the stairway down is like a stairway into your own soul. So it's really getting in touch with yourself and believing in your own intuition, listening to your little tiny voice inside that maybe for lack of evidence you choose not to listen to, or for lack of confidence or even just for lack of being able to hear it. That's why I say that Glenn Doyle thing, because she sits in the closet to find it and then she's like, there it is. There's that knowing now I know, or whatever this is all about that I love it. I love it. [00:44:00] Speaker E: So on theme for me. Great, thank you. [00:44:04] Speaker A: Welcome. [00:44:05] Speaker B: 2022 is your year of self discovery. [00:44:08] Speaker E: Going deep. [00:44:09] Speaker A: Yeah. [00:44:10] Speaker B: All right, what happened, guys? [00:44:12] Speaker E: Ready? Okay. [00:44:13] Speaker B: Well, like Sarah, I had a few stories to choose from, but I decided I would share this one. It took place in my adult years just before having children. Ever since I was little, I think even like from the age of eleven I've been seeing a dermatologist for acne. You're told, don't worry, it's going to go away when you're a teenager, and then it doesn't and it carries on. So I've gotten quite well researched in adult acne and all that. So anyways, it was getting bad at work again, which I started to figure out when I would get really stressed out. It would obviously impact cortisol and adrenals and the acne virus hangs out in the adrenal glands. Right? Didn't know that. At this point in time. I think I was like late twenty s. I set up a new appointment with a new dermatologist and I go and I'm like, I show up to the appointment and I had washed off all the makeup from work because it was like midday. But I'm like, oh, it's okay. I'll bring my makeup kit and I'll put it back on afterwards because just like feeling really ashamed and wanting to hide it. Okay. [00:45:23] Speaker E: So I show up and so she. [00:45:26] Speaker B: Calls me into her office and I'm like looking around, I'm like, oh, look at that. I was like, she's got all these stacks of paper and all these writing instruments. Like, I love office supplies. Okay? And so I'm like just taking it all in. [00:45:42] Speaker E: I'm like, oh, look at that. [00:45:44] Speaker B: I'm like, in this one pile, it's white paper and then a black outline of the human form and the word front and then in another stack it's like the same outline and the label back and I'm like, and look at this pile. It's a blank face. [00:46:01] Speaker E: I was like, oh, does she have. [00:46:03] Speaker B: Those for people's kids to color on? [00:46:05] Speaker E: I'm like, this is so exciting. [00:46:08] Speaker B: And then it's not all connecting at this point, folks, okay? Because again. [00:46:16] Speaker E: You'Ll find out. [00:46:18] Speaker B: And then I start to really hone in on of her writing instruments. They're so colorful. I was like. [00:46:25] Speaker E: I was like, she's got all these colors. [00:46:27] Speaker B: I'm like, I've never met a doctor who has all these different pencil crayons and markers and all that. And so I sit down in my chair across from her desk, and I'm, like, buzzing. I can't wait to see what's going to happen. And she's very monotone. Like, she doesn't have any expression. She is very straight. [00:46:50] Speaker E: And get to work. [00:46:51] Speaker B: And she grabs my duitang folder, and she opens it up. And then she's just talking to me about, how long have I had acne? Those sorts of stupid questions, okay? And she was very still. And then as she's talking to me, she's, like, taking notes, and she's not even looking at her hand writing. And then she just reaches over and she grabs from one of the piles of paper. And so that's in my peripherals. So I'm trying to maintain eye contact, but I'm very curious. I was like, what piece of paper from this stack did she grab? Right? And then she's still, like, writing notes, like, very boring. And then she reaches again, and she grabs from one of her colorful bins, and I'm like, on the inside, I'm. [00:47:37] Speaker E: Like, this is getting exciting. What are we going to do? [00:47:40] Speaker B: And she takes off the lid, and then she just starts going all over the page. And I'm like, what is she doing? So I finally. I can't take it anymore. I have to break the eye contact. And I look down, and I'm like. [00:47:55] Speaker E: Yeah, do you have all the answers? And I look, and it's the sheet of the face, and she's taking a red marker and literally put dots all over it. [00:48:08] Speaker B: And I went from up here, folks, to being so excited and jazzed, and this is going to be a new age approach to all of a sudden it all coming together mid sentence. I was like, oh, my God, she's drawing my face. [00:48:26] Speaker E: Not your face, your acne. And I was like. And then I was like, oh. [00:48:34] Speaker B: And then I remember in that moment, collecting my birth even tighter to me. [00:48:40] Speaker E: Because that's where all the makeup was. And. [00:48:45] Speaker B: Don'T worry, we'll get to that bathroom. [00:48:50] Speaker E: I don't like her. Oh, my God. [00:48:52] Speaker B: I hated her. And she was so unfeeling and didn't even like. You know when you're talking to someone and they don't acknowledge or give an emotional expression that they've registered what you're. [00:49:08] Speaker E: Hearing, and you're just like. [00:49:10] Speaker B: And so she's just like, okay, here's your prescription. I was like, for how long? [00:49:17] Speaker E: Never mind. This is too sad story. I don't even think we should laugh. [00:49:29] Speaker A: I just don't even understand. What kind of masochist is this? Isn't it redundant to draw your acne? [00:49:35] Speaker E: Like, I'm here for a reason. [00:49:36] Speaker A: I don't need you to make a headshot with lots of dots on it. [00:49:40] Speaker E: She's going to put it in the folder, though. Well, this is what she looked like for your file before they had cameras. [00:49:48] Speaker A: Isn't that same picture in everybody's folder? [00:49:51] Speaker B: Put it in the folder. And then I'm assuming at the follow up appointment, then she'll examine to see if comparatively, there is less. But it was. [00:50:01] Speaker A: She should have taken a picture. [00:50:04] Speaker E: It's the sound that goes along with a poop. And you have. How many do they have? I've counted all of your acne. And I got to put it all on there. [00:50:18] Speaker A: Every shameful spot. [00:50:20] Speaker E: Totally. [00:50:21] Speaker A: My arm is tired. [00:50:22] Speaker E: She has to rest her arm. The whole face is just red at the end. [00:50:29] Speaker A: It's not even dots anymore. It's just a red head. [00:50:32] Speaker B: But what was funny about it was how mismatched, like, how not wanting to perceive the reality. I was. [00:50:41] Speaker E: I was like, and it's going to be great, and it's going to be wonderful. [00:50:44] Speaker B: And she's got colorful markers, folks. And then to only. Yes. [00:50:48] Speaker E: Realize. I didn't know where the story was going. [00:50:51] Speaker B: I was like, she's a child psychologist. [00:50:53] Speaker E: Kira walked into the wrong office. [00:50:58] Speaker B: I also didn't understand because there was so much of what I would label in my head as art supplies. So it was really. What's the word? Like, disorienting. Like, I was like, where am I? And I was so hooked in that I didn't even see. [00:51:13] Speaker F: Was it different color reds? [00:51:15] Speaker B: Yeah, she had different colors. And I noticed she had a lot of different browns. [00:51:19] Speaker E: She had. [00:51:21] Speaker B: I wondered about that on the drive. Yes. I was like, I wonder if the browns for the moles. [00:51:28] Speaker E: I don't think she's a card. We got to turn this around. [00:51:31] Speaker B: I know. [00:51:33] Speaker E: Let's put this out of our heads. [00:51:34] Speaker B: I feel so bad that it was beautiful skin. Debbie Downer's story, folks. [00:51:39] Speaker A: Yeah. [00:51:43] Speaker E: I'm glad you're laughing. I want to punch her. It's hard to think about a story, don't you think? [00:51:49] Speaker A: Well, I just think it can make fun of that doctor. You know what I mean? We can feel bad for Kara in that moment. She's obviously okay. [00:51:55] Speaker B: Well, she just bedside. [00:51:57] Speaker E: Maybe she was a good doctor. Obviously. [00:51:59] Speaker A: Look at her face now. Yeah, maybe she was good at what. [00:52:01] Speaker E: She did, just not the bedside. Yeah. Yeah. She was always something she sees every day. Right. [00:52:10] Speaker B: And you could tell because she was just so, like, Automatic. [00:52:14] Speaker A: Wasn't emotional for her, I'm sure. [00:52:17] Speaker B: Right. Okay. [00:52:17] Speaker A: For you. [00:52:18] Speaker B: And stop. [00:52:22] Speaker A: The nine of wands. [00:52:25] Speaker B: So magical. [00:52:27] Speaker A: Okay, there's a lot about this. So let's see. So, numerically speaking, it's a nine. So it's coming to the end of a cycle. Wands are the other masculine symbol, as opposed to swords. So where swords are, like, clarity of thought and all in the mind and self talk and stuff like that, wands are way less like that. They're, like, impulsive and fiery and energy and action. So a lot of action. [00:52:54] Speaker B: Good. [00:52:55] Speaker A: You can see in this card that there's, like, stormy seas as well as calm seas. So you might be pushing through a more challenging time. That requires a lot of action and kind of response or whatever, but I don't know. The soothing part of this card is, like, you're heading towards smooth sailing. I will give not a warning, but the last card in this cycle is, like, this is Jason and the golden Fleece. That's the story that goes with this card in my deck. So he's gone. He got the fleece. He's on his way home. And this is kind of like the last kind of, whatever push before he makes it to his final destination. But in the ten, when he makes it to his final destination, he's kind of trapped inside. You know how when you build a fire, you make, like, a pyramid or whatever? So he's inside a pyramid of sticks like that. Because all of the excitement and adventure of going to get the golden fleece was awesome. And so now that he's completed his journey, when he should be celebrating, he's kind of like, now what do I do? [00:53:58] Speaker B: Right? [00:53:58] Speaker A: What's my purpose now? I had this purpose for so long and this intention, and I had a source to focus my action toward. In the ten, it's like, instead of being, like, good for me and taking time to sit in it and enjoy it, it's kind of, like, almost like, not a full depression. But you know what I mean? Like, this nostalgia for all that hard work. So this also, too, when you're doing stuff. Like, I could relate it to when I was finishing my degree. By the end, I was like, I don't want to write another fucking essay. I'm so sick of this. I'm over this. And then when you're done, then you're kind of like, I could take another course. When you're in it, you're like, I hate this. This is so hard, or whatever. And then when you're done, you're kind of like, I don't really have anything to do now. What should I do? [00:54:50] Speaker B: That is me right now. Yeah, that's perfect for you. [00:54:54] Speaker E: So there you go. [00:54:54] Speaker A: You're coming to the end of a cycle. There will be smooth sailing after an initial kind of last push. But the advice that I want to give with this card is think about when it's over, enjoying it, sitting in the satisfaction of the accomplishment, and maybe considering what is next, or considering what's it going to feel like for me to just be without all this extra stuff that requires all this action. [00:55:22] Speaker B: Totally. Yeah. That's literally what I was thinking about yesterday is I was, like, looking ahead and I was like, really, if I can just make it to April. And then I was like. And I couldn't even go there beyond. I was like, but then what would I do after April? Because that's when things are going to get really a lot smoother for, like, months. And I was like, I don't know. And then I was like, distract myself. [00:55:44] Speaker A: See if you can mentally prepare for actually not doing anything and on purpose. You know what mean? Like, it's okay for me to not be busy. It's okay for me to not have the next thing. It's okay for me to sit here for a minute and just be or whatever. [00:56:00] Speaker B: That makes me uncomfortable, Kimberly. [00:56:01] Speaker A: I know. [00:56:02] Speaker B: Therefore, it is good advice. [00:56:04] Speaker E: Hey, but my book will help because it tells you to go sit. Go to a sit spot. Oh, really? Robin, listen to the birds. It's good. [00:56:14] Speaker A: You like that, too, right? [00:56:15] Speaker E: I love that. April is when the robins start to arrive. Holy shit. This is amazing. [00:56:25] Speaker B: I feel much better now that I have a focus. [00:56:27] Speaker A: Yeah, totally. [00:56:28] Speaker E: Now you have somewhere to add. [00:56:29] Speaker B: I just need to make it to the. [00:56:33] Speaker E: Tells you to sit. You're like, check. I did my sitting. Okay. Sitting and listening. Nice. [00:56:39] Speaker B: Here we go. [00:56:40] Speaker E: Cool. [00:56:40] Speaker B: That was fun.

[00:57:34] Speaker B: Sometimes I literally miss hearing him. [00:57:37] Speaker E: It's like I haven't talked to Malcolm in a while. That predict divorce. He called them the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Oh, yeah, they are. What are they? [00:57:45] Speaker F: Okay, I have a good question for everybody because we're, we'll be the judge of.
