On the latest Our Monkeys, My Circus Podcast, the eight-year-old and I start off by talking about things that scare us. (Related: the eight-year-old admits to being scared by Scrubbing Bubbles when he was younger. I got nothing.) We then talk to the four-year-old about things that "kinda creeps him out."
This all leads to a predictable conversation about Halloween costumes (Ninajo-themed, naturally).
We then discuss a little NFL news -- Eli vs. Peyton (Eli wins out because, in the immortal words of the eight-year-old, "a kid in my class is named Eli"), nicknames for Andy Dalton (Carrot Top Cannon prevails), and the Steelers' last-second win.
Finally, the conversation turns to school-bus barfing noises, stinky kids, selfie sticks, birthdays, woolly mammoths and humans with T-Rex arms.
