What delusions do you have? That you’re special? That the universe concerns itself with your existence? Sweet, innocent you. Tune in to this month’s Nights show to hear about delusions ranging from crapping the bed after a sexual encounter to humiliating yourself auditioning for “I, Tonya.” Thanks for listening!
Do you feel lucky, well do ya? You should because you’re listening to this month’s Nights of Our Lives show! Dear heavens—if this is the best thing that happens to you today then we’re sorry. Anyway, this month we have stories running the gamut from appearing on the cover of the board game Scene IT 2 to crapping your pants on the NJ Transit! All true! Enjoy!
We got all the vices you could want in this month's show: cocaine? Check. Performing cunnilingus on a menstruating woman? Yup. Uncertainty over adopting an abandoned guinea pig? Of course. And receiving too many meatballs from your sweet old landlady? That's gotta be the king daddy of all vices.
Remember that great present you got for the holidays of your dad cheating on your mom? Or of your Irish dance teacher humiliating eight year old you? Or that blow job you received from that totally straight guy?
