In the morning, I like to listen to hip hop radio on my iPhone. I have an app which lets me tune in to any station around the country, though no matter how much I switch around, all I hear is the same Drake song and idiotic morning-show talk.
Today on the Orlando station “Wild 94.1” I heard the DJ asking for donations for some cause (I was paying for egg salad, so I didn’t hear the specifics), which he said were tax deductible.
He then explained the concept of “tax deductible” like so:
“It’s like when you’re in a strip club makin’ it rain. Makin’ it rain is when you participate? Preticapate? Can’t even say it. It’s when you ever so gently sprinkle down money on the stripper’s booty. So say you drop 600 singles on Mercedes, or Lexus, or whatever car name that stripper has. And then imagine you went out to the parking lot and there was your 600 dollars, sitting on the hood of your car. That’s just like what happens if you donate to charity. Come tax time, you reduce your taxable income by that same amount. It’s like getting the money back.”
Thinking how one might explain volunteer work in terms of getting a hooker.

Thinking you might be the only soul who listens to hip-hop and also buys egg salad.
Haha! You may be right. Though MC Egg Salad would be a good hip hop name.
I missed it live because I was walking around Africa looking at animals. Ok. It was The Wild Animal Park, but it felt real.
I did, however, watch the replay. Loved it Laura. You’re a natural.
I put make-up on, took a piss and got the wine and appetizers ready for some friends coming over–all whilst learning valuable information. (Note to self: use whilst more)
You’re brilliant Laura. Thanks for sharing. Love ya. Mean it.
Oh, before I got to the end of the sentence I thought you were saying you put on makeup to watch. I was really flattered. But I still am, just that you watched — and especially so that you liked it.
I think you should say “all the while.”
Thanks so much, Lane. Love ya back. xo
I know. All the while sounds like I should say that. I wanted to sound British. Or foreign. Or maybe just like an ass. Even if it wasn’t used properly.
I guess I’ll erase that note.
And I would totally put makeup on to watch your webinar.
Emma Lincoln says
Truly, utterly priceless. I think this is the funniest thing I’ve read all day…but I’m on pacific time, so, anything could happen…
Have you topped it yet?
How on earth did I miss your webinar? I didn’t see anything about it except here in your comments. I totally would have signed up, I’m bummed. Especially ’cause now I know you are stunning and you killed it. Will you do another?
Do you get the emails, Kristen? I mentioned it on Tues (I think) and today. But I’ll have access to a recording I can share with everyone, so stay tuned.
I do get your emails, I just missed Tuesday’s I guess. I’d love to watch the replay. Hurray! I love that you say you hate stepping out of your comfort zone and your going to do less of it. That makes me feel just a little bit smug for successfully staying ensconsed in my comfort zone. Although once I see your talking face on your webinar I might have to insist that you keep steppin’ out.
The replay is in today’s email. Did you get that?
I love my comfort zone. Love it love it love it.
I had to drive to another state today for tax free liquor so I was kinda stepping in my abundance, but got back in time for the webinar. You precipitated all over that thang…
Are you saying I made it rain on the stripper’s booty?

I was eagerly awaiting your webinar today, I blocked off the entire day for fear if I went out to do anything else I would miss it. I guess reading your posts about it, made me want to support you and keep your nerves at bay, telepathically, which really is more Licia’s department. BTW, your webinar made me want to hire Licia, you and Adda…see you really know how to use words and beauty to convert.
I was stunned when your face flashed on the screen. Your picture on your website is pretty, but you live…you’re stunning! Made me wish I was you. Your presentation was spot on, and I was taking notes…I just want to be hang out at your place and have you make me over.
Congrats, you did a more than awesome job.
Aw, thanks, Jul’s! You’re too kind. And definitely invited over.
I’m glad you liked it. I felt your telepathic soothing. Totally worked.
Randle Browning says
Um you killed it on the webinar. ;D
Jul's Arthur says
Didn’t she??? Randle, I feel like a proud reader! As if Laura is mine, and she made me so proud on her webinar!
Can only imagine how her mama, papa and hubby feel.
Thanks, Randle! It was fun. I feel good about it. I’m no longer a webinar virgin!
I’m no genius, but it kinda sounds like you stepped outside your comfort zone, Laura, and some pretty magical things unfolded…no? :))))
Is it wrong of me to like Drake JUST because he’s Jewish? Ask your dad.
It’d be wrong of you NOT to like him. You should like him just because Degrassi.
