All Right Bank today is Monday. December sixteenth Chicago. Dog Walk Carl. It's Christmas The Christmas Week I guess to bird here reporting for duty yeah. We don't know the schedule schedule next week. So we're doing Christmas episode now. Yeah it's the season yeah. Holiday Season Tubers reported. We got to birds for Christmas or Nala Leah. Virginia Baked Ham to Virginia Baked Ham. I depends I gotta talk to my old maid sees the smoke it but I think it's important if you're going to Virginia Bacon Ham slice it by hand. Don't get the electric slicer out. I hate hearing the electric sites around the kitchen. What's your What's sharp sharp tonight? Get a sharp knife. Put the Apron on get. Get your hands dirty but I feel like you can get Thinner slices I forgot to tell you something very important. was that when I was when I was treating the birds my hi dad pulled out like surgical gloves by plastic gloves. He's this way way cleaner operation. Forgot to tell you that our struggling struggling very it took effort to get these clubs on my hands very frustrated and they don't give a fuck about these gloves ribbon. Surgical gloves are something yet. When you need them like they they come in Handy and I know my dad's not listening? But you're a Weirdo for having those sort of just having them around the house anyways So yeah so you Do you have any Christmas traditions. I know you have one really a play. Is that right. Yeah it was yesterday in. We went to shenanigans instead for a Christmas nations park Chicago. I did at dinner my my my cousin my brother but it's historically we go to the Goodman theatre for Christmas Carol Larry Janda plays Ebenezer Scrooge in a classic landmark performance performance across Chicago. You'd really like this guy's head of the theater department at northwestern what's funny is when I saw them obviously and ask them how it was they said. Oh it's great same thing every year. I was like same thing really. They're like no like something changes like a little bit like it's just a little tweak. Yeah so like a little bit like miniature tweak they would do oh the probably the the best one is the ghost of Christmas past because she's flying around like crazy sometimes and other times she's like big and fat and other times it's like you know little guy and and so they like to change the like you know or is it going to be really funny in in some respects or who's going to be you know. Oh yeah so like all right I I could see that would be like jarring like that. Keeps people on the edge of their seats. Who's going to be the ghost past but a lot of the set stays the same and that's what allows us set to be so good for the same sat in it's like this is the land? This is goodman theaters like world series. Like they're just raking cash in right now like this is their gold standard. So it's always slammed when he go. Yeah right now. It is Gotcha holiday season season. PEOPLE WANNA get into place man so are you hosting this water now. No I'm not actually my wife and I have hardly talked about this and this is kind of weird because now that I'm married Christmases different. When you're single you go the home? You don't have to think it's a great holiday. You're taking care for like days on it so to that extent. Are you going home. Yeah I'm going home. I don't know if it's at my parents house. My sisters sisters or what but you don't care I don't care it doesn't matter to me. I get the tax today of or you know a couple of days before I show up. You know I'll probably run the target like the day before four kids some gifts and then that's that's it now. I'll have I have to go to my. I guess we do have a new tradition now because now that I have older brothers and stuff more married married were in that next Phase I have to. My mom is adamant that she has ever the boys our wives and the kids over ver- she's adamant she's like I don't give a shit with date is on the calendar. GotTa happen it. I don't care how close it. So it's December twenty first this year. You guys were actually there last year while I I was in Vegas. You guys weren't calling him. Yeah that was no is an interesting one white sox. Dave and chief were in my dad's garage but like stowed away just waiting. My mom was like fine. You can record a podcast Karaj on Christmas so I think it was it was. I think it was Christmas Eve. Yeah Yeah it was Christmas Eve yes yeah. It was Christmas Eve at at my parents house and everybody was just smart goal. Isn't that red eye radio. Do you have traditions. You guys are Italian. Do you guys like someone makes it dish. There's always There's always pasta there. Which I guess is maybe unique? Do you have a favorite but You know I guess favorite favorite tradition. Yeah I really do like it's it's pretty. It's pretty standard. I don't you know you watch all the movies you can you do the I don't no no like I don't go to midnight mass anymore. Okay so that was. Yeah like midnight mass this year. Yeah might like go out with those. I'm thinking like well. I'm in charge the house now like I'm getting up in my own bed and Christmas morning like you know those are actually Kids I might give any presence. Those are actually some. KFC's Zyppah best blogs. I think is when he talks about like Christmas mass. Or whatever and you know just going back and seeing people which Italy haven't seen in twenty years there's is just unbelievable. You know one thing never changes when I go to Christmas. Mass is like I don't care how this comes out but like you can't help yourself but just like check girls like ERC churches like the number. If you are checking and I'm sure the same thing goes for girls in there's like checking other dudes out but there's just something about it. Well I mean let's be honest standing there. It's not when you're when you're listening to the homily. It's not exactly good follows. You know you can get a little distracted. Yeah it's not and especially when you're a kid like you don't have any turmoil the church like I understand why parents go to church leaders been through some shit. Yeah you're a lesson to be going there in repenting for you're not even listen at the end I if I'm not mistaken isn't like usually the. It's the same right like Christmas. Like priests could have different homilies. I know same story same same. Yup Yup Yup GONNA say bad Catholic here. Because I don't really know I mean I think I think it's I think it's like the British open like a couple of courses you can pick from. Yeah no I like it right. You're you you can't get outside of the courses you pick. Yeah exactly like you get the manger you get the fucking Frankencense and Moore you know and then you just kind of go on with the story. So aw there's nothing different so yes of course when you're hearing the same story from it doesn't matter if it's your fucking Grandpa or or the priest you're gonna be mosinee around and maybe see some fucking a pair of black pants. It is what it is exactly. So there's there's I mean the movie s back actors interesting. I'm a huge. Do you have any tradition. I mean I you know what let me just come out and say this is. I'M A. I'm a weird guy. I'm really into Christmas. I've I've been into Christmas. It's like day after Thanksgiving tree goes up I'm really close to my mom. There's three boys but my mom's like tomboy but the stuff she goes all out on. It's just like you know you around the house as a kid helped put the tree up you know. She needed like girls to do it or any of that stuff. So there's a lot of the stuff we're like I know a ton about you. KNOW IF WE'RE GONNA get into Christmas. I was when we say you know like I've seen them a thousand times with like you know I'm just very into the holiday season and shit because I like it. It's it's cold and shitty man like there's something something about seeing the lights up and you know people are a little bit nicer so before we talk about any of this. I do WANNA come out and like confessing. I'm a big soccer for Christmas. Like fuck him starbucks starbucks changes the cops. Change The fucking cops. Yeah no I guess you know now that I think about it. I do have one tradition that I do bodies and I told you about that before. I mean you guys I know we like.
