The thought of a doctor drawing a spaceship as a prescription for Tig's cancer is hilarious. I swear these stories could be turned into hilarious sketch comedy skits.
Gah! I was shouting Mary Lou Retton at my computer screen way before David finally said it. #TimesLikeThisiWishiWereInTheHatch

At one point during the episode I pictured Tig as the Terminator that just kept taking such a beating and kept coming and never stopped. But in a sweet, wonderful way. Sounds corny, but she is an inspiration to us all.
I got a kick out of picturing TIg going to her doctor, telling the doctor that she had cancer and the doctor drawing her a prescription of a rocket ship. I could see Tig taking it to the pharmacy and the druggist handing Tig a bag with a giant rocket ship in it.
Glad to know Kyle is in NYC. I have to get in and see him perform! Everyone in the area should!
Regarding anticipation, I think it is tied into optimism and pessimism. I don’t think I can help but try to envision how various endeavors will go. I don’t like to be unprepared. Surprises are generally not welcome.
When my dad passed away, we could see it coming due to his long, debilitating illness. Shortly thereafter, an uncle died suddenly. I can’t say that the anticipation made the loss easier or harder to take as compared with the sudden shock of losing my uncle.
Thanks to those who have wished me well in my pursuit of the NYC assistant gig with Tig and Kyle. If I don’t get it, maybe my daughter will!
Welp, that’s been comment.

Glad to hear about the new video game Trolley Town Toilet Flush, sounds like a blast.
Finally, I was in New York for a day a couple of weeks ago. I am disappointed I didn't know about the High Line before I went, I'd have loved to check that out. Congratulations on the apartment, that dishwasher sounds pretty awesome.

By the way, being born in Spring Texas and living there for a good bit of my childhood, I can honestly say I never heard the Mary Lou Retton story, but when asking my family they said that it was common knowledge. Weird.

Tig, I'm so happy to hear that you are cancer free! My friend and I always call each other to discuss the hilarity on the earwolf podcasts. Lately, all we've been discussing is how you had to pull through this. You just had to. And when we talked about this episode via text, caps lock was overly used to show our excitement for you.
I can't wait to buy your new CD and to hear you on This American Life.
David, Kyle and Aaron - keep pooping on beaches, keep telling embarrassing stories and keep having no emotions, respectively.

Thanks for such great shows lately, and Donald Trump is my new favorite impression of Kyle's. I kinda miss David's Chicago guy, come to mention it. I can't wait for the further adventures of Morbot and Good One. Maybe they could open a detective agency? Here's hoping. Finally, I wanted to include a message for Tig:
Hey, Tig. I just bought/listened to LIVE. I know you're serious about your craft and think LIVE is pretty "raw' , but damn, don't be too hard on yourself-this recording is great and it made my day better...

If there were a "Not Impressed" button next to the "Like This" button, I would click it for this post. (Wait, that probably sounds negative, but you know what I mean!)
Tig talked about her prognosis on Conan a few weeks ago, so it wasn't really news to me, but it was nice to hear the details fleshed out a bit and the related stories.
