I was thinking about our latest podcast – the one we posted on Friday – and by far the best part is “Fun Facts with Don and Jim,” where we tell embarrassing stories about each other. It was recorded with Don at his house and me visiting our folks’ place in Milwaukee. Our two sisters were in Milwaukee as well, so I decided to pull a fast one on Don.
You see, our sister Wendi was Don’s nemesis growing up. She’s five years older than him and far craftier to boot, and he suffered many indignities at her hands over the years. So when it came time to record “Fun Facts,” I handed the mic over to Wendi and she told a great story of how she totally freaked out Don when he was a little boy. It involved a tape recorder, monster sounds and a water gun. you can find it about two-thirds of the way through – I think it’s hilarious.
