Dan and Phil were mentioned in a topic of how it’s important for young men to talk about their feelings or if anything isn’t going well

Mornings - 26 August
with Wendy Harmer (but Wendy Harmer was sick today so it was someone else) on 702 ABC Sydney

PS. Can we PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE band together and make Dan and Phil notice that they were mentioned this morning on the radio and in this topic of conversation specifically :) I’m sure they’d be really happy and flattered

When you have a real world conversation and suddenly realise where 75% of your inner monologue comes from…

Her: what happened with that writing thing?
Me: oh well I finished my first book the other day, it’s only 95k but it’s…
Her: NINETY FIVE THOUSAND?!? You need to trim that right down.
Me: it’s only slightly longer than the Hobbit…
Her: but the Hobbit was GOOD. Who’ll want to wade through that much dross?
Me: -_-
Her: what a waste! No one will read it.
Me: it got some positive feedback online so…
Her: but you always bribe your way with presents so it hardly counts does it? No.Exactly
[half an hour later]
Her: what’s that on your phone?
Me: just a picture a friend drew me
Her: it’s not very good. Why did anyone waste their time on you for that?
Me: -_-
Her: how much did you pay for it?
Me: it was a gift
Her: that’s just stupid. They must want something.
