The Tao of Larry

Is this episode your path to total spiritual enlightenment? Legally, we can’t say yes, so, let’s just say more than likely. Consider the following zen koans presented in this week’s episode. Is a yogurt maker still a yogurt maker if it has never been used to make yogurt? And what is the sound of two pears not ripening? Yes, grasshopper, only when the boozehound is ready will the bartender appear.

And remember, nobody likes a narc. What happens on the podcast stays on the podcast. Don’t rat Larry out to his wife! So, they don’t have a hamper yet. Big deal! And ick-snay on the eye-ay ows-bray! Not to mention the ani-may edi-pay!

But enough of that alarkey-may. Also learn why people enjoy eating lunch so much and how to not make your own carbonated water.

    Larry, this may not be your style, but you could use that carbonated water in a wet t-shirt contest between your wife and Susan.

    Dear Larry,

    You respect and love me, as I respect and love you. Please do not do interviews. Don’t change the “p-cast” I love the old timey radio show feel.

    Love the show Larry!

    You told the same drink by the fire story for your wife having broken/lost your favorite cup/mug? Makes me wonder if these stories are all true like you say…I want to believe, Larry!

    Love the show, love the show, it’s only once a week though so careful on the overlap.

    Pear ripening: put pears in a paper bag with a banana. and close the bag.
    When is pear ripe?
    Apply thumb to pear just below the stem end. If yields to gentle pressure, pear is ready.

    Larry I love the bands that you feature on the show. Have you ever considered Happy Kine and the Mirthmakers?

    The hamper story is sooo… funny. But Larry, isn’t it easier to talk
    directly to your wife instead of having your listeners convey your
    message that your too chicken to mention to her?
    aww..just goofin’ on ya!
    love the show

    I agree on the ix-nay on the interviews, but how about an old time detective program? Could call it the Adventures of Larry Miller, PI. Episode ideas:
    The Case of the Missing Higgins Report
    Midnight Murder at Rawfs
    Hot Sauce and Hot Dames
    Who Drank All the Bourbon

    Larry, give the SodaClub a chance. The syrups are very much bad. All of them. So very bad. And don’t get me started on what SodaClub calls “tonic.” It’s gross. But not having to lug seltzer around is a great luxury. I guess that part of why I like the thing so much is that I live in NYC where we (for the most part) are generally carrying our groceries home rather than driving. But even still, it’s pretty great to be able to add some soda to your whiskey and not then suddenly realize you don’t have any soda. The trick is finding a store that stocks the recharge canisters – otherwise you’re supposed to send them off UPS (which is just dumb). I was sure when we got the device it would be another of those stupid things to get rid of, but now I use it almost every day and have done so for years. Coming home and drinking water – – BAH, who needs it! But drinking a big tumbler or two of seltzer – – HOORAY! And less headaches in the morning for all that extra re-hydration. End-to-end brilliance! Besides, as a smaller company they are MUCH more likely to advertise with you than Coca-Cola.
