“We’ve got a humdinger for everyone today!”
Well hello! Welcome back to Because Let’s Be Real… with episode number 4! Today Hannah is hosting an absolute humdinger of an episode talking us through guilty pleasures, quirks and bad habits; from hand washing to
“That is the worst imagery i think i’ve ever…”
We asked you to send us yours via instagram @becauseletsbereal and you guys did not disappoint! We laughed, we cringed we talked about vaginas and willy’s way too much and swooned over Tom Hardy. We’ve got a bowl for each category and entries from you guys, us girls and our partners, so let’s delve in…
“Do you do the willy wobble?”
In classic COVID style, the first entry from one of you wonderful lot was all about hand washing – we hope you’ve been singing your happy birthdays – a big no no from us was not washing your hands after going to the toilet, are any of you guilty of this?
“I don’t want to use the word vagina or willy.”
Now, we weren’t aware of who the anonymous people sending them in were, or whether they were male or female in some cases – this left a lot to the imagination and a lot of pee tips for that sticky situation where you’ve just pee’d and then dun dun duuuun… there is no toilet paper!
“You can’t shake it dry, Laura!”
Does anybody else have a quirk where they just know the most random stuff and you leave people looking at you like ermm? I’m sure Laura (Jessop Rendle) loves your useless knowledge Jake, always good to be on a quiz team with you! But sometimes it is odd to see the random answers people come out with – Laura Bennett had a great point to add to this…
“I know random words”
I think it’s safe to say that within our friend group we don’t have that person who just know’s everything – unless you count google as a mate, which let’s be real.. we all should because how lost would we be without it?
If you are one of those people who is filled with wonderful, but useless knowledge – let us know how you do it! Are you just super absorbent with new information or do you have a photographic memory?
“If i ever go to a museum i just look at the pictures i don’t read the text”
The next submission Hannah pulled out of the bowl was ASMR – now if you don’t know what this is then i strongly recommend you pause reading here, pop open another tab and Youtube ASMR. Then come back here and just comment one word based on your experience!
ASMR is, to put it short and sweet, people whispering into a microphone, usually a highly sensitive microphone which picks up on the smallest of sounds. It can be calming sounds, people talking or even people eating – which we were all torn about.
“You know what really turns me on when it comes to ASMR?”
Natalie delved into her love of ASMR while Laura and Maria were less easy to convince. Until it came to talk about Tom Hardy and Chris Hemsworth that is.
“excuse me i’m just going to take a bit of time for myself!”
Not strictly ASMR, but still, who is going to turn down listening to Tom Hardy’s Ceebebies Story Time. Wait you haven’t seen them? Ok, if you don’t have kids we can’t totally blame you, but again. Pause here, get back on youtube and search that shit up!
“Read me another one Tom, I’ve sent the kids to bed”
One of the classic bad habits, one where Hannah dropped Elliott right in it, is leaving plates next to the sink/dish washer or putting things next to the bin. Now we are so quick to point the finger at our male partners for this, but make sure you listen to the podcast to find out which one of us girls is just as bad with this habit!
“After a week she left five pizza boxes under my bed”
Food is another topic which we can definitely say hold some bad habits. Our host was the center of attention when it came to this. Most people classically resonate with Joey from friends famous quote “Joey doesn’t share food” Well Joy would just have to if he was friends with Hannah!
“Hannah is like an actual dog when it comes to food”
Let us know if you’re that person who lovingly looks to your squad for food scraps or even name and shame your friends that do this – send them this blog or even our podcast as a gentle nudge if you’re not sure how to approach it, Hannah didn’t seem to take it too badly – haha!
So we may need to start recording these sessions via video rather than just vocally because the amount of times we refereed to how each other looked is quite funny. Let us know below if you think we should start recording them, or even start a Youtube channel?
We went on to talk about taking pictures of your hob before you leave the house/go to bed and discussed barricading doors before you sleep. Are you a doors fully opened or fully shut kind of person?
“I’d rather slowly stew away in my own sweat”
Two guilty pleasures that we absolutely did not agree with as being guilty are watching Arthur and the Disney Channel! From watching Disney Channel originals to learning the dances from High School musical we covered it all and with the (relatively) new release of Disney+ we’re all able to relive our youth and revisit our favourites.
Definitely not something we’re feeling guilty about!
“It’s cringe but so good!”
As you can tell, we had so much to talk about from this podcast, so much in fact that we have had to do a PART 2!! Make sure you’re following to ensure you don’t miss out on the second part of this weird and wonderful discussion.
