[00:00:43] Speaker G: Pitiful inability too. Not just like no judgment? [00:00:46] Speaker F: No, it's like the worst of the worst. [00:00:50] Speaker G: I need to change my definition to do with pornography. [00:00:56] Speaker H: How about this? Don't be so pathetic. You have to wash your cryptuscular shaft. [00:01:06] Speaker I: You ready, guys? [00:01:07] Speaker G: Let's do this. [00:01:12] Speaker I: Express yourself. Share the wealth. Hold on to your bookmark. We're off the shelf. Express yourself.

[00:01:35] Speaker D: All right, so welcome to this off the shelf episode where we are playing Balderdash with the words we did not understand in funhome by Allison Bechtel. Okay, I am the host, and Meredith, Lindsay, Kara and Kim will be guessing what the true definition is and they have submitted fake definitions to fool us. [00:02:05] Speaker E: Our first fake one. [00:02:07] Speaker I: I know. [00:02:08] Speaker D: No. [00:02:10] Speaker G: So there'll only be four options, correct? [00:02:13] Speaker D: Right. Four options. [00:02:15] Speaker E: Right. That's a good number. [00:02:17] Speaker H: Yeah, otherwise I can't remember more than that. [00:02:20] Speaker D: All right. Are you guys listening? I'm going to do it with the dictionary. Oh, wait a minute. It won't do that because it'll go into my headphones. [00:02:30] Speaker F: Okay, shucks. [00:02:32] Speaker E: Just wait a minute. Just say it. [00:02:34] Speaker I: You can? [00:02:34] Speaker G: Yeah, just say it and we'll resay it. If you say it in some weird way where we're like, do you mean humectant? [00:02:41] Speaker E: You know we will. [00:02:42] Speaker H: Humectate is the word. [00:02:44] Speaker D: Humectant. [00:02:44] Speaker I: There you go. [00:02:45] Speaker G: So you don't have to say anything. We'll still be like, do you mean. [00:02:49] Speaker H: Why don't you spell it too? [00:02:51] Speaker I: Okay. [00:02:51] Speaker D: Humectant. H-U-M-E-C-T-A-N-T. Humectant. [00:03:00] Speaker E: What could it mean? [00:03:02] Speaker F: The definition seems so obvious. [00:03:07] Speaker D: To appear moist and carry a strong, sweet stench. Humectant. To engage in speaking moistly or an involuntary release of air vibration through the lips. Humectant. Involuntary or a substance that absorbs or helps another substance retain moisture. [00:03:36] Speaker E: Okay, so we're going to do the same thing where we put up fingers, right? [00:03:41] Speaker H: Right. [00:03:42] Speaker F: Oh, yeah. [00:03:43] Speaker I: Okay, wait. [00:03:43] Speaker H: I need a review. So the first one is. [00:03:46] Speaker D: Number one is to peer moist and carry a strong, sweet stench. Two, to engage in speaking moistly. What does that mean anyway? [00:03:58] Speaker E: Three, so much moisture. [00:04:01] Speaker D: Three, an involuntary release of air vibration through the lips. Four, a substance that absorbs or helps another substance retain moisture. All right, on the count of 3123, go. Oh, the correct answer is four. [00:04:32] Speaker H: I was number three. That was mine. Kim picked number three. [00:04:37] Speaker I: The lips was Lindsay. [00:04:39] Speaker D: Yes. [00:04:40] Speaker E: Mine was a Trudeau reference because I couldn't resist. [00:04:43] Speaker F: It was impossible to resist. [00:04:45] Speaker H: Oh, I liked the Trudeau reference. I thought that was funny, but I obviously knew that was moistly. [00:04:51] Speaker F: Moistly. I liked number three the most. It was hilarious. The involuntary air. [00:04:57] Speaker H: I did that because of humming. That's where I got humming. Like involuntary air through the lips of. I picked three because it was the. [00:05:07] Speaker G: Only one that didn't have moist. So I thought everybody's fake definition assumed a moist. [00:05:13] Speaker I: I know. [00:05:15] Speaker D: I don't surprise when there are so much moist. Really do know words. [00:05:20] Speaker E: Moist. [00:05:21] Speaker D: All right, thank you, Lindsay. Let me get it. [00:05:22] Speaker H: So what did Kara pick? [00:05:24] Speaker F: Four. [00:05:25] Speaker D: She picked four as well. The score right now is Meredith, one, Kara, one. Kim, zero. Lindsay, two. [00:05:36] Speaker F: All right, nice. It's getting serious now. [00:05:42] Speaker H: I just made mine up, Kara. And, like, right before we started taping, I was like, I need two. [00:05:48] Speaker I: Oh, this sounds good. Lock it in. [00:05:50] Speaker E: Just made it up. So good. [00:05:53] Speaker H: Yeah, I kind of thought it was something to do with the humidity. Makes sense that that's the root of it. I wanted to do something different, like humming. [00:06:03] Speaker E: Very nice. [00:06:04] Speaker D: All right, next word. [00:06:06] Speaker E: So serious. [00:06:07] Speaker F: I know. I hope it's the funniest word ever. The next one with your serious crepus. [00:06:14] Speaker D: Crepuscular. [00:06:18] Speaker H: Hold on, I can put it on my phone. So that one? [00:06:21] Speaker D: Yeah. Perpuscular. [00:06:22] Speaker I: Wow. [00:06:23] Speaker G: Very sensual. [00:06:24] Speaker I: Wow, that's a Marilyn. [00:06:26] Speaker H: Sensual. Capusular. [00:06:32] Speaker G: I need to change my definition to do with pornography. [00:06:38] Speaker E: How do you know the real definition is not? [00:06:41] Speaker H: Your shaft is so prickpuscular? [00:06:48] Speaker E: I don't know. It doesn't sound sexy when you say shaft. [00:06:52] Speaker G: When you say shaft. [00:06:54] Speaker E: I don't think shaft should be capuscular, but I'm not sure we're going to find out. [00:06:58] Speaker I: Yeah, we are. [00:06:59] Speaker F: All right, what are those definitions? [00:07:01] Speaker H: Wait, how do you spell it? Did you spell it? [00:07:03] Speaker D: Oh, no, I didn't. [00:07:04] Speaker H: Sorry. [00:07:05] Speaker I: Okay. [00:07:05] Speaker D: C-R-E-P-U-S-C-U-L-A-R. Puscular. [00:07:14] Speaker I: Okay. [00:07:16] Speaker F: I'm going to die. If one of the definitions includes the words shaft, that's the one I'm picking. [00:07:21] Speaker I: I'm going to lose it at that point. Lose it? [00:07:25] Speaker E: We can't be drinking while she's reading it. [00:07:27] Speaker D: Then first, related to or resembling twilight, dim. Second one is gnarled and twisted. [00:07:39] Speaker G: Your shaft is crepustulous. [00:07:43] Speaker I: Gnarled and twisted. [00:07:46] Speaker D: Three, the lowest part of the surface of a liquid in a test tube. Four, wrinkled with large, deep folds. [00:08:02] Speaker H: Your shaft is. [00:08:05] Speaker E: Okay. The first one has to do with being dim. [00:08:08] Speaker H: Like at twilight. [00:08:10] Speaker I: Yes, dim. [00:08:11] Speaker E: And the second one has to do. [00:08:12] Speaker D: With being gnarled and twisted. [00:08:14] Speaker E: Gnarled and twisted. [00:08:17] Speaker F: And so does the fourth one. Kind of. [00:08:19] Speaker E: And the third one was the lowest. [00:08:21] Speaker D: Part of the surface of the liquid in a test tube. Right. The fourth one was wrinkled with large deep folds. [00:08:32] Speaker I: Okay, wait. [00:08:33] Speaker G: What was the first one again? [00:08:34] Speaker H: Dim. [00:08:35] Speaker E: Like twilight. [00:08:36] Speaker D: Resembling twilight or dim? [00:08:39] Speaker F: Are you ready? [00:08:40] Speaker D: All right, ready. One, two, three, go. [00:08:47] Speaker H: Lindsay has one. [00:08:49] Speaker E: Kim, two. [00:08:50] Speaker F: Tara, two. [00:08:51] Speaker G: Meredith, four. [00:08:53] Speaker D: And the answer is one. Twilight. Lindsay got. [00:08:58] Speaker I: Nicely done, Lindsay. [00:09:01] Speaker F: I never would have guessed number one. [00:09:03] Speaker E: I almost did that one. That's great. [00:09:05] Speaker H: But I love that mare and Kim have the same kind of definition on both of those words. The first ones were both moist. These ones were both gnarled. [00:09:13] Speaker I: Oh, yeah. [00:09:14] Speaker E: That's why I almost didn't guess it. I was like, oh, could I? But gnarled and twisted, that's mine. Number two. And I. [00:09:26] Speaker H: Was the liquid one. I was like, mare's never. What is that curve? Meniscus. [00:09:33] Speaker E: I almost guessed one because I thought number four was too much like mine. But then I thought, maybe I'm smart. [00:09:39] Speaker D: What was it again? Who got two? [00:09:41] Speaker I: Who picked two? [00:09:42] Speaker H: I kidding. [00:09:44] Speaker F: Kim and Kara. [00:09:45] Speaker G: So now Mera has three points, so. [00:09:47] Speaker F: We know Meredith gets additional pointage. [00:09:49] Speaker D: Okay, Lindsay got Lindsay. [00:09:52] Speaker F: She got it right. [00:09:54] Speaker D: And Meredith, what did you pick? [00:09:56] Speaker E: Oh, I picked four. So Kim gets. Okay, I was thinking that's a lot like mine, so it's probably number one, but maybe I'm really smart. That's what I thought. [00:10:04] Speaker G: Exactly the same thing. I was like, maybe I was close. [00:10:08] Speaker E: Maybe sounds like it. [00:10:10] Speaker H: Where are we at now? [00:10:12] Speaker D: So Meredith has three points, Kara has one point, Kim has one point, and Lindsay has three points. [00:10:18] Speaker F: Nice. Okay.

[00:11:29] Speaker D: Rococo? [00:11:30] Speaker E: I don't know where the emphasis is. Which syllable. [00:11:32] Speaker D: Yeah, me neither. [00:11:33] Speaker E: Rokoko. Cindy. [00:11:38] Speaker I: Oh, yeah. [00:11:39] Speaker E: This is like from the third one. This sounds like a vertical rococo. [00:11:43] Speaker F: She didn't sound sultry. She was like, yeah. [00:11:51] Speaker D: R-O-C-O-C-O. Ro. [00:11:58] Speaker F: Okay. [00:12:00] Speaker D: A late 20th century art movement or slang describing of moroccan origin an ornate or flawed in speech, a literary style, a period of art indicated by ornate decoration. [00:12:38] Speaker G: And then the first one has. [00:12:39] Speaker D: I know, art. [00:12:41] Speaker I: Yes. [00:12:41] Speaker F: The first one also did a late. [00:12:43] Speaker D: 20Th century art movement. [00:12:46] Speaker F: I really want to pick up my phone and Google right now. [00:12:49] Speaker D: They're all the same. [00:12:51] Speaker E: And what was number two again? Moroccan slang. [00:12:55] Speaker D: Yeah, moroccan slang. [00:12:57] Speaker F: What's it going to be? What's it going to be? [00:13:01] Speaker E: I have a guess. [00:13:02] Speaker B: I'm ready. [00:13:02] Speaker H: I know. [00:13:03] Speaker D: Are you ready? [00:13:04] Speaker E: Yes. [00:13:05] Speaker D: One, two, three, go. [00:13:08] Speaker F: Oh, so Meredith and Kim and Kara have three. Lindsay went with one. Let's find out. [00:13:16] Speaker H: I know I'm right because I know the. Oh, what? [00:13:19] Speaker D: No, Marie is right. [00:13:20] Speaker H: Really? It's also an art period. [00:13:23] Speaker E: Two points for me. [00:13:26] Speaker H: Coco is an art period. [00:13:29] Speaker D: Well, because that definition had adjectives and there was, like, a lot. So the simplest one, that is a style of architecture originating in France in the 1720s, evolved from bareque. Thank you. Baroque, maybe, pipes, and distinguished by its elegant refinement. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. [00:13:51] Speaker G: If you know the word, Lindsay. [00:13:55] Speaker H: But it wasn't the right word and it wasn't the right definition anyway. [00:13:58] Speaker E: Right. I got it wrong. 18th century, not 20th. [00:14:01] Speaker D: Oh, yeah. And it's not 20th century, it's 18th. [00:14:04] Speaker H: It's fair. [00:14:05] Speaker F: Oh, that was the. [00:14:08] Speaker H: That would make sense. [00:14:10] Speaker E: I did not know what it was, though. When I picked that definition, though, I just like. It sounds like an art thing. It sounds like an art thing. [00:14:16] Speaker D: There you go. Okay, good. Okay, mayor. [00:14:20] Speaker G: I picked it because it was a literary. And we know that our author was full of literary techniques. So I was like, this has got to be it. [00:14:28] Speaker I: Interesting. [00:14:28] Speaker H: I didn't know it was also a literary. [00:14:32] Speaker D: Yes, it's also a music style. [00:14:36] Speaker H: Yeah. [00:14:37] Speaker F: So, in summary, it's an ornate, artistic. [00:14:41] Speaker H: It's very ornate. My definition was actually one of the could have been. I put number four. But I already knew the answer. That's what I thought. I knew the answer, obviously. [00:14:52] Speaker G: Do you know the answers to any of the other words, Lindsay, before we move ahead. [00:14:56] Speaker H: Not telling you, maybe. I also think I knew myself now. [00:15:02] Speaker G: And if Lindsay sweeps the rest of these ones, we know. [00:15:05] Speaker H: All right, well, mayor's got to be winning now, I think. [00:15:09] Speaker E: You know what's nice is after I decided to make the true do reference moistly, I couldn't resist. Well, it's okay if I don't win. I'm going to put in speaking moistly. Because it's hilarious. [00:15:19] Speaker I: Exactly. [00:15:20] Speaker F: Right. [00:15:20] Speaker D: Meredith has five, Kara has two, Kim has and Nancy has four. [00:15:28] Speaker H: I think I only have three, don't I? Or did I get. [00:15:30] Speaker E: I didn't get. [00:15:30] Speaker D: All right, you got it wrong. [00:15:32] Speaker F: I'm kind of losing confidence in the score keeper. I am teasing. [00:15:40] Speaker E: You don't have a future as a game show host. [00:15:42] Speaker I: But that's okay. [00:15:46] Speaker F: It's just a game. [00:15:47] Speaker H: Done. [00:15:48] Speaker E: What's the next word? [00:15:51] Speaker H: I don't have it. I can't play it. Hold on. I don't want to see the. Yeah, there you go. [00:15:57] Speaker G: That's how she knows the answers, too. [00:15:59] Speaker I: Looking them up. [00:16:00] Speaker H: Do you hear it? [00:16:01] Speaker D: Pathetic. [00:16:03] Speaker I: Did she say pathetic? [00:16:05] Speaker H: Pathetic. [00:16:06] Speaker D: With a b. Pathetic. Spell it. [00:16:10] Speaker I: Yours. [00:16:13] Speaker H: You spell it. [00:16:14] Speaker D: B-A-T-H-E-T-I-C. Pathetic. [00:16:20] Speaker F: I see. [00:16:22] Speaker H: I don't know the answer. [00:16:23] Speaker F: Pathetic. Yeah. [00:16:27] Speaker H: I know a lot of words. [00:16:28] Speaker F: Some definitions. [00:16:29] Speaker G: I know. I was worried about you with this one. I was like, how do I pick these words? She's a word Wednesday woman. [00:16:34] Speaker I: She's going to know them. [00:16:36] Speaker H: I do not know this word. [00:16:39] Speaker D: The art of bubble sculpture within a container of water. [00:16:44] Speaker E: Wait, bubble what sculpture? [00:16:46] Speaker D: Bubble sculptures within a container of water. [00:16:51] Speaker F: I want to go see some bubble sculpture. [00:16:54] Speaker E: Sounds great. [00:16:55] Speaker D: Characterized by bathos emotionalism of soap opera. Full of hope or promise or. The last one is pitiful inability to wash oneself. Pitiful. [00:17:12] Speaker I: Sympathetic. [00:17:17] Speaker G: All right, again, a pitiful inability, too. That's no judgment. [00:17:21] Speaker F: No, it's like the worst of the worst. [00:17:25] Speaker D: Okay, so one more time. The art of bubble sculpture within a container of water. Two is characterized by bathos emotionalism of soap operas. Three is full of hope or promise. And four is pitiful inability to wash oneself. [00:17:48] Speaker F: Jeez. [00:17:52] Speaker I: These are really harsh. Yes. Can it. [00:17:56] Speaker F: Please, can we just make it be number four so that we can start implementing the word into our nomenclature. [00:18:02] Speaker I: Game over. Right? [00:18:05] Speaker D: Pathetic. Pathetic. [00:18:10] Speaker F: Pretty pitiful that you can't wash yourself in a bath. [00:18:13] Speaker I: You're pathetically pathetic. [00:18:20] Speaker D: Okay, are you ready, everyone? One, two, three, go. [00:18:27] Speaker F: Oh, I wanted to do number four. [00:18:28] Speaker E: I wanted to do two, and I didn't do it. [00:18:30] Speaker D: I was like, all right, this is Linda, right? Yes. Characterize bathos. [00:18:38] Speaker E: No, that's me. [00:18:39] Speaker H: Mine. I was going with the bath thing, too. [00:18:42] Speaker E: I was going to do two, and I was like, it sounds like a lot like a definition. And I was like, maybe I'll throw in a wild card. [00:18:48] Speaker H: Anyway, I was going to do one. [00:18:49] Speaker G: Or two, and at the last minute, I was like. I couldn't even remember what two was, but I just ran away from one. [00:18:54] Speaker F: Luckily, everything within me wanted to hold up four fingers. [00:18:59] Speaker I: It was hard to keep two of them down. [00:19:01] Speaker F: I went with two, but I wanted four. [00:19:04] Speaker I: Totally mine. I couldn't resist. [00:19:05] Speaker E: I was like, I'm not trying to win. I have to do something hilarious. [00:19:08] Speaker I: It is hilarious. [00:19:10] Speaker F: It was great. [00:19:11] Speaker E: Well, I started taking the game seriously, and then Dan's like, no, someone's got. [00:19:15] Speaker H: To do the jokes. [00:19:16] Speaker E: And I was like, you're right. Someone does have to do the jokes. [00:19:20] Speaker F: We need speaking moistly. [00:19:21] Speaker I: We need pathetic bathing routines. [00:19:24] Speaker E: Yeah, there you go. [00:19:26] Speaker D: I'm going to use pathetic as your definition going forward. [00:19:30] Speaker I: Yes. [00:19:30] Speaker D: Don't be pathetic. [00:19:32] Speaker H: Don't be so pathetic. [00:19:33] Speaker I: For sure. It's. [00:19:35] Speaker E: For goodness sake. [00:19:37] Speaker H: How about this? Don't be so pathetic. You have to wash your cryptuscular shaft. That was hard to say. [00:19:50] Speaker I: That was wonderful. [00:19:51] Speaker E: And then she met it will help dry it off. Oh, God. [00:19:54] Speaker I: It comes with visuals. All I could see is the guy, like, wanting to clean his wife twice. I don't know. [00:20:16] Speaker E: Definition. We'll have to go on to Wikipedia. Be like, it also means this, according to. [00:20:23] Speaker I: Gnarly shaft. [00:20:25] Speaker F: You pathetic creature. [00:20:29] Speaker D: Pathetic. You're pathetic. [00:20:32] Speaker I: You're pathetic. [00:20:36] Speaker E: I'm glad that one brought a laugh. [00:20:38] Speaker I: I will because of the laugh. [00:20:40] Speaker F: We appreciate it. [00:20:41] Speaker D: No, but you do win anyway. Meredith has five points, Lindsay has four, Kim has four, and Kara has three. [00:20:49] Speaker I: Hey. [00:20:50] Speaker H: No, I still think I only got. [00:20:51] Speaker F: Slow and steady wins the race. [00:20:52] Speaker D: No, you got one. The last one. [00:20:54] Speaker E: You got two. [00:20:55] Speaker H: Oh, I did. You're right, I did. I forgot. [00:20:59] Speaker D: Yes. [00:21:01] Speaker I: Oh, that was a great idea. [00:21:02] Speaker F: That was lots of fun, eh? That was great. [00:21:06] Speaker G: Good. [00:21:11] Speaker H: Although now I don't remember any of the real definition. [00:21:13] Speaker I: No. [00:21:14] Speaker H: Let's see if we can do that. [00:21:15] Speaker E: You're never going to know what pathetic means for the rest of your life, right? [00:21:19] Speaker D: Okay, let's go through it again. Humectant is a substance that absorbs and helps another substance retain. Sorry. Retain moisture. Not remain. [00:21:32] Speaker E: Retain. Oh, then you couldn't use the humectant to dry off the shaft. [00:21:36] Speaker F: You couldn't because it's going to retain. [00:21:38] Speaker E: No, it would keep it wet. No, keep it moist. [00:21:42] Speaker I: It's going to be stuck in those folds. Yeah. [00:21:45] Speaker F: Mushrooms will be growing out of there. [00:21:49] Speaker D: What was the next word? The sexy muscular. It means resembling twilight. [00:21:56] Speaker I: Yeah. [00:21:57] Speaker F: That was so strange. [00:21:58] Speaker E: That's a good one. [00:21:59] Speaker D: Not the gnarled and twisted shaft. [00:22:01] Speaker E: It doesn't seem like it should mean that, though, does it? [00:22:04] Speaker G: Not at all. [00:22:05] Speaker I: No, it does. [00:22:05] Speaker E: Like, twilight has got a certain feel to it and crepuscular. Like the actual word reminds me of. [00:22:11] Speaker F: Like, crustacean or something. [00:22:14] Speaker E: Yeah. [00:22:15] Speaker D: Roco. [00:22:15] Speaker H: Cocoa. [00:22:16] Speaker D: Do I say too many cocoa? [00:22:17] Speaker E: Cocoa. No, you don't. [00:22:19] Speaker F: I don't as many like cocoa. Pronounced. [00:22:26] Speaker D: Ordinance in speech, literary style. It's also an architecture in 17 France. [00:22:33] Speaker H: It's also a music style. [00:22:36] Speaker D: And pathetic is a pitiful ability to wash oneself. [00:22:43] Speaker E: No, we wish it meant that. [00:22:48] Speaker D: We wish the pathetic is displaying or characterized by bathos. Emotionalism of a soap opera. Bathos. [00:23:00] Speaker I: The weird thing is, why talk about. [00:23:03] Speaker F: The emotionalism of a soap opera? Because isn't the whole darn soap opera one big dramatic, emotional? [00:23:11] Speaker E: Maybe it just means, like, over the top emotionality characterized. [00:23:17] Speaker G: Yeah, like the soap operas and exhaust. [00:23:18] Speaker F: Got it right. [00:23:19] Speaker G: How soap operas are really pathetic. [00:23:22] Speaker F: Oh, they are. [00:23:25] Speaker H: They're also pathetic. [00:23:30] Speaker D: All right, that's it. Off the shelf. [00:23:32] Speaker E: We did it. [00:23:33] Speaker I: That was great. [00:23:33] Speaker F: And who's the grand winner? Is it Meredith? [00:23:36] Speaker D: Meredith. [00:23:37] Speaker G: Meredith won anyway, even though she was. [00:23:38] Speaker E: Like, I'm not trying to win. [00:23:39] Speaker G: I'm only trying to be funny. So you won twice, mayor. [00:23:42] Speaker E: That's pretty. I won the joke. [00:23:47] Speaker D: Well, congratulations, Meredith. Wonderful. [00:23:51] Speaker G: Next time we do this, we should have a gnarled shaft as the trophy. Yes, I'll find a gnarly shaft while I'm here because there's probably a lot of opportunity. [00:24:06] Speaker I: Why? [00:24:07] Speaker E: Where are you an opportunity? [00:24:09] Speaker G: I'm talking about a wooden shaft. [00:24:13] Speaker F: I went to probably like what Sarah did, which is you're in an environment. [00:24:17] Speaker I: Which has lots of sex shops around. I was like, okay, totally. Where are you? Like, blackout windows. [00:24:26] Speaker F: Like everywhere she goes nude peach. [00:24:32] Speaker E: There are plenty of gnarly shafts. Use your gnarly shaft as a trophy. [00:24:38] Speaker F: Thank you. [00:24:39] Speaker G: You can put it by your lady lamp. See if it turns it. [00:24:46] Speaker H: I forgot you have an actual lady lamp. And I was like, is that like a new name for your lady lamp. [00:24:52] Speaker E: Come turn on my lady lamp. [00:24:53] Speaker H: Maybe the light up your gnarled shaft.

[00:25:39] Speaker D: Another green smoothie and everything will be fine. [00:25:42] Speaker H: Our partners might be nice at home. [00:25:43] Speaker E: But you go out into the world and expectations of the greater world is going to be different. [00:25:49] Speaker F: And I'm allowed to learn in my own way and take away my own takeaways. And there's no set standard here. [00:25:55] Speaker H: That conversation took a weird turn. I blinked for a minute and I. [00:26:00] Speaker E: Was like, wait, what? Mustache hair? [00:26:02] Speaker H: So if the onion had written a book about women's stress, this would have been the result? [00:26:09] Speaker D: Book interrupted. [00:26:11] Speaker F: Never forget every child matters close.
