[00:01:40] Trey Gerrald: Have you ever heard that song?

[00:01:41] Chelsey Donn: I haven't... was that Liza?!

[00:01:43] Trey Gerrald: I don't know who it was. some Child singer,

[00:01:46] Chelsey Donn: first of all, love it. Second of all. No, never heard that song before they wanted to hippopotamus.

[00:01:54] Trey Gerrald: Yeah. It's just like a, some random, like, I guess Christmas song from back when like men went to war and cleans and the streams, I don't know.

[00:02:04] Chelsey Donn: Oh Yes. Cleaning in the streams was a big deal back in day.

[00:02:08] Trey Gerrald: Um, oh my gosh, 'Merry Ho Ho' as my mom says it is our Christmas episode!

[00:02:14] Chelsey Donn: It's true! Merry Christmas queens!

[00:02:17] Trey Gerrald: Merry Christmas to all who celebrate girl. How was your week?

[00:02:21] Chelsey Donn: My week was great. I had an audition today that I had not very much time to prepare, so that's always, you know, a rush, but it went, it went well. And I had a good time and they got to work with my coach Taylor, who I love and adore. So great, great day. So far. How about you trey?

[00:02:40] Trey Gerrald: That's nice. You know, I've been having a great week. We're still working on training hunter and you know, our dog Winnie knows how to play dead, if we say bang. Right. So, um, we're still working on down with hunter, but it's coming along. We just have to remember. Work on him. Yeah. But, um, things are good. I'm glad that it's Christmas time, you know, people tend to be a little cheerier.

[00:03:05] Chelsey Donn: It is true. I think it's the music. Just hearing that hippopotamus song already made me feel better, you know?

[00:03:11] VOICEOVER: I want a hippopotamous for Christmas!

[00:03:15] Trey Gerrald: Well, aside from all this Christmas joy, should we get into some Christmas, non joy Chelsey? Would you like to

[00:03:23] Lodge A Complaint!

[00:03:23] VOICEOVER:

[00:03:23] VOICEOVER: Lodge A Complaint?

[00:03:25] Chelsey Donn: I wa as a Christmas gift to myself, I would love to Lodge A Complaint if that's okay. I really hate it when I'm eating and I have to sneeze. Oh, you know, like just very inconvenient timing. What, like, what do I, what am I supposed to do with that? Like if I sneeze, it's just going to be terrible. And

[00:03:47] Trey Gerrald: it does like kickoff that like rubbing your head and patting your stomach thing.

[00:03:50] Chelsey Donn: Yeah. Well also there's food in the mouth, not to be gross. You know what I mean? Like there's just like a lot to negotiate. Correct. And, um,

[00:03:59] Trey Gerrald: did this happen to you recently?

[00:04:00] Chelsey Donn: It did. It did. It happened to me right before we were recording and I was like, I guess I could lodge that as complaint. I was, yeah. I was eating a salad chewing on that lettuce and then I had to sneeze and like, listen, I, I did it. I nailed the landing. I was able to swallow and then sneeze, but it was stressful. Like I was very, very stressed out in the moment. There's certain things like, um, sneezing while driving also very bad. Apparently when you sneeze, you close your eyes. Oh, you're you're driving like with your eyes closed for a second, which is also terrifying.

[00:04:34] Chelsey Donn: So the timing of that, it's just like, I love a good sneeze. I, I hate when sneezes get cut off early, you know, like when you're like, Ooh, I just want that. So, so thank you, sneezes. Cause I think it serves a purpose, getting the dust out or whatever is this gross? I don't know, but like everybody's sneezes is right.

[00:04:55] Chelsey Donn: We got to write that book, but I, I like a good sneeze, but the timing of this knees or, or the need that, you know, we have so many things that could interfere with the completion of the sneeze, you know, or when somebody says, God bless you before you've sneezed. It's like bad Juju. Then all of a sudden this news doesn't come out.
