Debbie Charlie:

They mess with you at night. If you leave the TV on, they stick infomercials on to get in your brain so that you wake up like I gotta buy draperies middle joking, but not joking. Dave would come in the bedroom he'd see me passed out and he'd see the infomercial for crepe erase. Because they kept following me there. They were dogging me with crepe. Erase what is it? Oh, it's stuff that you put on your skin so you don't look old? Or creepy or creped crepey skin or skin? Cream gray gray paper? Oh Crazy Crepe paper? Yeah, yeah, it's not attractive. So people's skin as time goes on gets creepy and this is a great look as cream eraser. So I'm not tuning into crepe erase Yes, I have watched the infomercial God bless everybody who's admitted it but and I'm intrigued with it but like I maybe saw it once or twice. He thinks I'm addicted to watching the infomercial because every time he came into TVO he bought me for like my birthday. I know you don't want to admit it. You since you're watching this infomercial every single night I bought your crepe erase but these people with a nighttime TV Yeah, they get involved with making us rest they're selling us stuff while we're sleeping all the

Luz Michelle:

Debbie Charlie:

What depends on how tired I mean. My mind goes so fast all day long. Yeah, that

charlie ponger:

I am the one who Disney came to to look inside my friggin brain to get the idea for the rides for Disney. Because that's your brain. They like Oh, this one's interesting. Oh, wait, let's just do it. I'm here. Oh, wait, we can have a whole two whole amusement park of ideas and thoughts. And it's a pain in my ass to tell you the truth or to gift and a curse.

charlie ponger:

Yeah, it's a gift and a curse. Word these one liners come from

Debbie Charlie:

I pull them out of my backside. Anyone know what they're like? They just go and buy like a common one liner.

charlie ponger:

Luz Michelle:

Now I use a sound machine a sound machine. Yeah, we don't have a TV in the room. Oh, chose to have a TV in the room. I know me. I would get some bedroom watching. That's why it's not good for me mentally because I'll get sucked in. I love TV.

Debbie Charlie:

I don't really like it. Really? Yeah. I love sounds. You have a calm? Yeah,

Luz Michelle:

I'm just gonna hear white noise. It's called pure white noise. Yeah, well, it can. I've learned I've been doing it for a long time. For me. It controls my thoughts at night. So before I fall asleep, I don't have racing thoughts because all I hear is the white noise. And if I wake up in a millon night, it puts me right back to sleep.

charlie ponger:

Let me ask you, this does your husband
