Proud Podcast Person “Betsy” says, “When you can’t get passionate about any candidate for President, that’s called “Electile Dysfunction” Today’s podcast is about hope, which is getting kind of hard to come by when you listen to these guys talk.

Staying Happy Healthy And Hot is a book full of hope. It’s about the brand new Louie Louie Generation. We all had hope in the days and nights of Louie Louie. That’s why all the guys had that little round circle of rolled up latex that we called a rubber showing through the leather of our wallets. We also had a little sheet of well worn paper in there with the supposedly official words to Louie Louie. And every set of words I ever saw was different. Louie Louie Generation guys still have hope. Sometimes we hope for different things…like JUST ONE MORE HOUR OF SLEEP.
Today’s podcast is about floating hope. There are lots of different kinds of hope. For example last night when I took what I hoped was the last middle of the night whiz, I also took a quick glance in the bathroom mirror. Then this morning I took another squint into the mirror while I was shaving. Hope figures here too, because when you look in the mirror in the middle of the night you can excuse what you see looking back at you because…well maybe it’s just bad lighting…you can HOPE things will look better in the morning.
The little boy in this picture is getting an early lesson in the meaning of hope. I remember well a similar experience I had in kindergarten with a pretty little girl by the name of Joanie. In today’s podcast, I’m trying to convince you that hope keeps love and lust alive. There’s no such thing as a hopeless lover. No hope, no love. Today’s podcast is about “middle of the night hope.” Perfume traces…fantasies of black lace falling slowly to the carpet, quick smiles leaving lipstick traces on your life, whispers, quiet laughs. Hopes. The morning burns some hopes away. But some hopes…if you’re lucky…are in it for the long run.
Big Louie says, “There’s no egg-scuse for not having a Happy Easter.”
My Lady Wonder Wench was driving most of the way on the terror trip that’s in today’s podcast. She’s a better driver than most beautiful women. She swerved back onto the highway several times. And that was the scary part. People will jump out of your way when you’re driving on a sidewalk. But on the road, those terrorist drivers will tailgate you so bad, you’re sure you’re going to find a front bumper in your back seat, then you hear a maniacal laugh when they zoom around in front and cut you off… the only signal they use is the middle finger salute. Who left the box of those idiots open? I truthfully can’t wait till the self driving computer cars are on the roads and that may not be as far into the future as you think.
It’s Friday, so it’s time for the Dick’s Details feature from today’s podcast:
Dick’s Details, a bunch of totally un-important stuff for you to stuff in one ear, so you can squeeze the important stuff that’s making you crazy out the other ear, and you can go grab a grin. The smart guys in the white lab coats tell us that one of the differences between men and women is that far more men than women are color blind. Seems to me that there are more fun ways to tell the difference between men and women. Those same smart guys say that gold fish will turn white if they are kept in a dark room. I guess they’re afraid of the dark. If the answer is “De-calfanated” what is the question. An average announcer can get about 58 words into a 30 second commercial. In the case of some drug commercials it seems like there are gusts to at least 158 words. Sound does not travel through a vacuum. But hopefully the dirt on your carpet does…travel through your vaccum…unless it’s not making any sound in which case it’s broken. If the answer is “De-calfinated” the question is what do you call a cow who has just given birth. Hey, a little bull never hurt anybody. Dick’s Details, they take your mind off your mind.
A little housekeeping here: If you like these podcasts, or my book Staying Happy Healthy And Hot, or my spoken word cds at www.dicksummer.com , please tell a couple of friends. They might like them too, and you’d be doing me a favor. So thanks.
Today’s podcast is about my first hand experience of terrorism on our roads. Appropriate I guess with Easter and Passover coming up. Gotta wonder how THE BOSS would deal with getting around.
Hope is hot. Giving up is not. Sometimes keeping your hope up is hard. But hope is hot. Today’s podcast is about hope.
