I love Friday’s. We always Flashback for the Text Question of the day and I always can remember Connie and I sitting down with Steve and coming up with the question. We were all sitting in our office one day after the show and wondering what our young selves would think of us now. Kind of neat. Connie said it was that she “still sticks to her guns”, Steve said his LEGO collection and I was proud of my chest hair. Today we experience it yet again.

TEXT QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What would 10-year-old you love most about you now?

  • That she wasn’t a bad person and her life is SO MUCH MORE than she could ever dream!
  • I’m a simple guy. I know for a fact my financial successes, sweet ride, house, hot wife... none of that would’ve mattered to 10 year old me. The thing getting me street cred with young me, I have a BLACK cat!
