Cabana Spiders

Kris and Kym on the stairs in Old Orange
Kris and Kym make sure the stairs are safe behind some cool building in Old Orange, CA

 

Kym and Kris take it outside. There’s bird tweeting, dogs barking, spiders LURKING! **SHUDDER** But we push through our fears and deliver the podcast like the caffeinated, mouthy chat-warriors we are. And we talk about everything under the sun: cancer, cemeteries, Big Bear, Aurora Borealis, noisy airplanes, noisier helicopters, Orange Ghost Walk, worst Christmas gifts…we said everything, we mean EVERYTHING. Today’s episode is a poignant catch-up for these two life-long besties.

UPDATE: Kym’s procedure went smashingly and everything came out ok. Literally. She’s fine, looking forward to her PSL, and sends EVERYONE her love. Which is awesome, because…WE…LOVE…HER!! The only thing we’re kind of bummed about is she’s not opting for the big pain meds. So much for Kris’ evil plan of making a viral video of Kym whacked out on meds.

Next time, Gadget….NEXT TIME.

(JK, there will be NO NEXT TIME! This was it, no more!!! Healthy us forEVAH!!)

Marriage-Whys

Marriage-Whys Advice
Kris and Kym have questions about long-term marriage secrets, Kim may just have some answers! Photo by Kimberly Sickel @riverdeer at 500px

Kris and Kym welcome Kim (yes, not confusing at all, we know) to the show to talk about the whys and hows of long term relationships.

Alright, alright…we talk about…THE “M” WORD.

Not Mississippi. Not a magnolia. Not a monkey. Not a mountebankery. We don’t even know what a mountebankery is.

Nope. (We DO talk about mischief though.)

MARRIAGE.

Hey, look. Amongst us there are (more than two) divorces and a 31 year wedding anniversary. Guess who has the answers to those pesky “why?” and “how?” and “no, seriously, WTF?” and “REALLY, HOW HOW HOW?” questions? Wanna guess who is asking most of those questions? Kris says “hallooo!”

But honestly, there’s some really great insights (and quite a few guffaws) about the ups and downs of having a committed, intimate relationship with one person or an entire lifetime.

One of us is still confused, but learning every day.

And who’s putting bets on Kym having a story about some kind of shenanigans she was up to back in the day? Possibly even last week?

Golly. You’ll just have to give it a listen to find out!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!

By the way, the definition of mountebankery is: 1 : a person who sells quack medicines from a platform. 2 : a boastful unscrupulous pretender : charlatan. Your challenge this week is to use the word mountebankery in a sentence, preferably with pointed finger and a confused onlooker.

Episode 06: Only Brats

Yep. Kris and Kym…are only brats. There are plenty of pros and cons with Only Child Syndrome. We had everything we needed, most of what we wanted. We never had to fight for the last cupcake, always got to ride shotgun (unless both parents were in the car) and we were the center of the Universe (we like to believe. And maybe still do…*sideeye*). And yet there were a lot of lonely days, and when things went south at home (because, you know, even in the very healthiest and happiest of households that happens) there was no one to turn to, to share the fear or the sadness with. There wasn’t a brother to feel safe with, there wasn’t a sister to whisper and giggle with. There was just…ourselves. And not all experiences for only children are like this, in fact, our experiences are quite different from each other although we both expressed that similar overall feeling of loneliness.  A lot depends on the parents and Kym is proof one parent can more than compensate for one not so great BioPU (Biological Parental Unit…pronounced bio-poo for good reason). When both parents are trying to get their lives together and rebuild and work and cope…sometimes the child gets a bit lost in the mix (Kris). And while we’re not going to outright say, “hey, that’s ok really, we ended up fine,” because it’s really NOT totally ok…there is an element of peace in that statement. Because we both did. And here we are, one raising two girls, one having raised a daughter…and all the offspring are doing a-ok. Because even though we’re only children, we really did learn how to share (I always say the ultimate and supreme sacrifice of love is letting the one you love have that last bite of cake) and we took the things we didn’t want to carry into our motherhood and made a real effort to do things differently for our children. Even better, we took the things we DID love and learn from our parents to be pretty decent parents ourselves. We think. We have expressly forbidden said offspring to indicate otherwise in any fashion verbal, body language, Snapchat, texting, YouTube rants, tweeting videos, IG IMs, etc., etc., etc., et al, legal verbiage infinity.

Just kidding. Titter teehee laugh laugh.

A bit selfish? Check.

Confident with being alone? Check check.

Center of the Universe? CHECK CHECK CHE….

Just kidding. AHHGAIN.

…maaayyyyyybe…

Well-adjusted and loving life? Definitely maybe could be possible Check.

Working on the above? For sure CHECK.

There’s lots of good in being an only child, and a lot of wishful thinking…
