Hey guys, what’s up. Welcome back to another episode of podcastmas. Today is the last episode of podcastmas and I’m so excited because it’s my dad’s podcast. debut right. Hello. Yes. This is fun. We are not only [00:01:00] recording a video, which I don’t know if you guys will see this or not, but we’re recording this podcast and we are playing, never have I ever, and every time we have done something.
We get to smash your face in this lovely plate of cold whipped cream. I’m very excited. This is going to be fun. We’ve got our questions. We’ve got my dad in his Santa suit. We’re all ready to go. Are you ready? I’m ready. Okay. Let’s do it. Question number one is never have I ever ran out on Christmas Eve to find a present?
Well, I have to say that I have run out on Christmas Eve. So I am number one. Oh gosh. All right. Well, I have a clean face gel, so it’s a tasty. It’s good. It’s good. Okay. Good question. Number two is I’ve almost spilled the Santa’s secret. I have to, so I have to smash that as well, but do you have a story? I have a story.
It’s so cool. When I was [00:02:00] probably 12 or 13, I actually said to my brother, because he was really kind of making me angry. I said, Oh yeah, well, there’s no such thing as Santa Claus. And with that knee jerk reaction, my dad backhanded me and my head went into the refrigerator corner. And I guess you would say I was unconscious.
So. Never have I ever bought a gift and almost immediately told the person what you got them guilty. I do my makeup. Yeah. I am guilty of that only because I’m kind of inpatient and I almost want to tell the person, but when I get them all the time, so yeah, 100%. Yep. All right. Never have I ever bought presents early and wanted to give it to the person right away?
I mean over the years, I guess I’ve bought mom many presents and I’ve always, when I don’t run out on Christmas Eve, if I go out early enough, [00:03:00] I almost always want to. Oh yeah. Oh yeah. I can’t wait. I think we were talking about this in the car too. If we go to the secret Santa shop, when we were younger, we could not wait until Christmas.
So it was always the first week in December. And then the next day we would give them presents. Yeah. So guilty again. Oh my gosh. Never have Amy bought a present and then wanted to keep it for myself. I can’t say that I’ve. Ever done that for myself, but if you have, I have, unfortunately, so it’s just a start.
Give me some more, why didn’t I do my makeup before I did this stupid. I know. Alrighty, never have I ever stayed up past 3:00 AM. Wrapping gifts. We not only have stayed up past 3:00 AM, but we have been up to four, five, and maybe even as late as six o’clock and one year I can remember watching the movie Ted about the pot-smoking bear.
So yes, we have stayed there. I have not, not [00:04:00] yet. Not yet. There you go. We’re making such a mess. Okay. And never have I ever made someone guess what? You got them so you can know what they want. Hmm. I don’t know that I ever played that game, but I’ve definitely probe to find out what somebody wants. Yeah.
And I’ll just be blunt and come out and say, what do you want for Christmas? You know, I have, Oh cheers. Never have it. Yeah. Ever fallen off the ladder when hanging Christmas lights. No, I actually haven’t gotten, so I’m glad of that. Neither have I actually don’t hang Christmas lights. You do so well. Yeah.
And I’ve never fallen off the ladder. Come close, but never fell off the ladder. Yeah. Okay. That’s good. That’s good. So we’re clean for this one. Okay. I keep eating it off your face. Okay. Never have I ever broken a Christmas warning? I think every year there’s actually a tradition of having to break an ornament and it’s almost always sentimental.
Oh yeah, we just [00:05:00] coming up. But I have definitely broken an ornament to actually I broken one this year too, so never have I ever thrown out Christmas lights and bought new ones because they are so tangled. Yeah, absolutely. Absolutely. I tend to try to save them and revive them with my little shocker toy, but I’ve gotten frustrated before and definitely have gone out and bought new Christmas lights.
Yeah, never have I ever spent more than two hours on tangling Christmas lights? I have just the other day. That was so fun. Oh, there we go. Never have I ever eaten more than five cookies in one sitting? Is that even a question that’s fine. Actually, it’s a silly question because yes, I have eaten, especially the butter cookies.
So I’m sort of gutted. Oh, the butter cookies are ridiculous. I’ve definitely eaten at least 20. Oh goodness. All right, there you go. Never have I ever given an IOU [00:06:00] you on Christmas gifts? We almost had two this year. No, I don’t think so. Yeah. I think I’ve been pretty lucky. Yeah. I don’t think I’ve ever, because I’ve always found at least a close alternative, so we’ve never had to do an IUD.
Yeah. I don’t think I have, especially with virtual things this year, you can just give a gift card and say, go buy what you want. So I think we’re good. I can stay clean on that. I think we’ve done it for pretty much every, I never have ever forgotten to get someone important, a gift. Ooh, if you consider running out on Christmas Eve to get a gift?
No, I don’t think I’ve ever forgotten to get somebody important. Good. Okay. That’s good. Yeah. I don’t think I have either. I usually have like, checklists, like everybody important in my life, but it might feel like one of those things where like, Oh, you know what, they’re not the most important person. Oops.
But yeah, no, I don’t think I forgotten so far so [00:07:00] good. Yeah. No, no. I’ve never. Never forgotten. Okay, good. Good, good. Never have ever run out of wrapping paper on Christmas Eve. Oh yeah. The one year I think we resorted to using Brown paper bags when they were still using those at the supermarket. I think we resorted to using those one year, but definitely ran out of the festive.
Yeah. You see a trend, you guys tend to do them in sections. Right. Whereas I have this specific paper and elevate in it as well, but then you’ll see where guys read out a paper, maybe halfway through wrapping a gift or do you halfway of the other? Yeah. Yeah, usually I let mom wrap hers first and then I stay up a little bit later.
Have another beer I’ll continue wrapping hers. And usually by that point, I will have run out of wrapping paper. Oh yeah. A hundred percent, which let’s see. Never really ever seen your Christmas gift early, but they’re not, well, I was [00:08:00] never one to Snoop. Right. But this Christmas, I was getting into the car because I share a car with Sophia sometimes.
And I got in and saw my Christmas present. And the next day when she got in the car, she’s like, Oh, so I guess you saw your Christmas present. I tried to play dumb, which isn’t very difficult and I just couldn’t get away with it. I said, yeah, I actually did. And so I bought it on black Friday because it was on sale.
Yeah, smash your face. So that was almost a month ago at this point. And then as we were getting in the car today, it was still in the back and you’re like, Oh yeah, that’s my dad forgot about it. Oh no. Oh, wow. No, it’s good. At least I know I got something that you’ll like, so that’s good. Never have I ever not known how to act when you receive the gift?
Oh yeah. You know, especially if it’s one of those gifts where it’s kind of, you don’t know if it’s a gag or if it’s for real and kind of like, [00:09:00] Oh, You want to laugh about it? You’ll have to be, uh, you know, so yeah, I have acted like that. So, I mean, last year we did a Pollyanna with your tire family and everybody watched everybody open their gaps.
It was so uncomfortable because I got a book that had a bad word in the title. And everybody watched me and they’re like, Whoa, you like that kind of stuff. So it was like, yeah. Okay. It was really awkward. Yeah. I never know how to act. Yeah. I think I remember one time somebody giving me a six pack of beer a couple of years ago that I wasn’t really fond of.
Yeah. Of drinking that kind of beer. I was like, Hey, thanks. And then you re gifted it a couple of days later. Didn’t you? I’m pretty sure. I, yeah, yeah. I wouldn’t put it past yet. Never have I ever watched more than three movies in one day? Well, I mean smash. So there was at one year we binge watched once upon a time time, and this is us and [00:10:00] we watched it was between Christmas and new year’s.
I think we watch. Every hallmark movie that there was in this loop. And then when we got back to, we said, Hey, wait a second. We saw this one. I know that plots are all the same, but we legitimately saw that one already. So we figured, well, that’s just way too much. But all we did was just sit around and eat and eat.
Oh my God. So yeah, it was fun. Yeah. That was really fun. And I remember once upon a time, and then what was the other one? This is us, but the hallmark movies, I remember going on Christmas break in grade school or something. And the principal was just like, what are you guys doing for Christmas? And we’re like, Oh, we’re watching hallmark movies.
And she goes, why it’s the same thing over and over again? I was like, but each one is just so good. And how can you not feel good movies? I don’t think we’ve watched one this season now. I don’t think we have. I think we have the Sierra club only because Disney plus has come out with some pretty good movies this year.
We’ve watched home alone [00:11:00] movies. Yeah. We have a pretty good lineup this year, but no homework. I’m surprised about that. We must watch elf. We do. Although everybody knows my story without. Where there’s no closed captions on it. And I’m really salting about that. But yeah, no, at least, at least somehow still power through each year and watch it.
But that’s on the list and this is going up like December 22nd. So we have, hopefully we’ll have lost it by then, but never have I ever slept until 10:00 AM on Christmas morning? No, no. I think when I was younger, I was way too excited and was up. By six, maybe seven, if I wanted to let my parents sleep.
Yeah. But once we got older and started having kids, then the tides turned and it was the children getting up at six o’clock. I don’t think I’ve ever slept or been able to sleep. Till 10 or 11 o’clock on Christmas day. No way. No way. I think the latest we’ve been off was probably eight o’clock. Yeah. So we stay clean on that.
Yeah. Thank [00:12:00] goodness. But yeah, no, I think last year or the year before I swear, we got up at 6:00 AM and I was miserable. I was not happy at all. And every one of the pictures mom took, I just looked so upset. And I think every year I pretend to be asleep, even though I can hear the kids, I can feel you. All shaking me and whatever else and just making a ton of noise, but I always pretend that I’m asleep and I get up and I pretend to be really grumpy.
And actually I’m not, I’m as excited as they are because I turned into a little kid on Christmas day. So, yeah. Yeah. But I don’t think you’re a very good pretend sleeper because you snore and if you’re not starting and you’re not asleep, don’t give away all my secrets. Never have ever gotten someone the wrong size of something and been criticized for it.
I don’t think so. I’ve always gotten pretty lucky. Never really gone wrong. Honestly, I think the same. Thank goodness, but I don’t want to [00:13:00] know what it’s like if you do get the wrong size. Yeah. That’s to be fine. It’s one of those things where at one point in time, back in the eighties, you could never go wrong because everything was worn over size.
If you bought an extra large or something like that, you. We’re never wrong. That’s true. That’s true. I think the same can go for right now, too, but it’s worse if it’s too small, because then it really won’t fair at all. Yeah, no. For your life had gotten drunk on Christmas Eve and Christmas stay certainly on.
Christmas Eve, I have gotten a little bit buzzed and it was always on Sam Buka. Now one year I can remember my mom and I, I think went to my uncle’s house. Everybody else was home sick and we ended up having a little bit too much. I think actually let me back up a second. I didn’t have too much while I was at the party, but when we got home, We actually [00:14:00] continue to have a little bit that’s fun.
Yeah. All right. Well, you’re the only one that has to smash your face for that one. Never have I ever broken a sentimental ornament? I’m coming back to the sign. I have. I really have for that one, unfortunately. Yeah. Yeah. I have broken a sentimental ornament. I don’t remember which one, but I do remember.
Okay. Oh mom, no, mom’s going to kill us. Never have I ever felt like not wrapping gifts. So you step up in a trash bag yes. In a trash bag, for sure. But there’s been times where it’s either just so late or I’m just done rapping. Then I’ll say, do you mind if I just give this to you in a bag and just put it in a regular bag or actually what’s even more sad is keeping it in the bag that you purchased.
It just gifting it. That was just not even caring. Yeah. I actually don’t mind when that happens. But I just think it’s really funny because it just gets really messy with wrapping paper. I [00:15:00] actually think one year mom had so many little things that she wanted to give me that she was getting it a cardboard box from Amazon and stuff, everything in there.
And I was like, this is signed. It’s no big deal, but yeah, I definitely will say I’ve done the same. Never have I ever loudly song the wrong lyrics and people noticed Hmm. I think I sent her the wrong lyrics all the time. And they’ve always been kind enough not to say anything. Yeah. I don’t think I have at this point, but yeah, I think, I think that’s good.
I’m trying to see I’m going to do a rapid fire round because that will be fun. Let’s see. Okay. Never have ever gone to an ugly sweater. Christmas party. No, I never have. I actually, I don’t own any ugly sweaters. I really don’t. And I’m jealous that you have, I know that one and Ian’s got his, and I’ve never actually.
Had opportunity to go to an ugly Chrissy. I know I’m so sad either [00:16:00] by, I think I bought this sweater last year, but I’ve never had a chance to wear it anywhere. So darn it. Never have I ever gotten Christmas, Caroline? I have. We have. Yeah. And when we were younger, we used to go around Christmas caroling with a guy named Mr.
Bell. And we would always go to my neighbor’s house and have hot chocolate and marshmallows afterwards. So that was a lot of fun. I have a lot of good memories from those days. Cheers. I ever received a fruit cake. I have, and I actually, sadly, it’s a guilty pleasure. I actually thoroughly enjoy the. I’ve never had it.
I don’t think I’ve ever tried it before. It’s good. If you’re like fake processed sulfite, latent fruit. It’s awesome. That’s gross. So I’ll pass, but you can smash. That’s good. Never have I ever hung a pickle on a Christmas show? We do. Well, we have a little warm in here. We have a pickle ornament. Yep. [00:17:00] No, no, I’m just that’s it.
Okay. So we do have that. Let’s see. Never have I ever had a white Christmas with like actual snow? Oh, I’m sure. Over my 52 years, we definitely have had probably Christmas. Hopefully the snow steps this year long enough for it to be a white Christmas. For sure. So I’m looking at one right there. Never have I ever had more than one Christmas tree in my house, three behind the street behind us, one in the living room, one in the family room.
There’s one in your bedroom, one in our bedroom. Is there one in your button? Yeah, I think there’s one in every room in the house. Pretty much. Yeah. There’s another one over there. Yeah. Okay. So that’s definitely seven trees that we have around one, a Santa hat in public. I have not. Well, actually we were decorating.
Yeah. I have more an expanded hat in public when we went to that youth group thing last year. So yeah, I have [00:18:00] never have I ever celebrated Christmas at Disney? Not yet. Not unfortunately. No, not yet, but soon enough. Hopefully let’s see what else we have on here. Gone to mass on Christmas Eve. Yeah. That’s your tradition.
Yeah. Okay. Have you ever bought a present for a pet? Yeah. Aren’t you supposed to? I guess you’re supposed to, uh, yeah, I usually do. Have you ever celebrated Christmas in another country? I have not. We know we celebrate a new year’s in Mexico, but we never celebrated Christmas in another country. You guys were close.
So why aren’t you? Yeah. Well, because you got marriage so close to Christmas anyway, so yeah. All right. Let’s see. What’s the last one we should go with. Never have I ever regretted a present exposed? Yeah, I’m pretty sure that I have the beer. [00:19:00] Of course, of course gifted that. All right. Well, I feel like I have as well.
So just for the heck of it, we’re going to smash. This is so messy, but I think we cover them all. Do you have any other ones that you can think of? I don’t think so. No, but I think that’s it. I think this is pretty, pretty fun. Pretty messy, definitely messy. I don’t know if the video will ever go out, but it’s really messy just to say the least, but.
Have some fun and play it this Christmas. Okay. We need to get you cleaned up because this is gross. But thanks for joining me. I had so much fun. Yeah, this is fine. And now we got to go clean up for the next hour because I’m going to be sticky. That’s the one thing I didn’t think about is how sticky this is going to be.
But thanks guys for joining us for this last episode of podcast. Miss hope you have a Merry Christmas that’s this week. I can’t believe that Friday’s Christmas. Oh, boy, thank you guys for joining us. And if we don’t [00:20:00] talk until after the new year’s happy 2021, and we will see you guys next time. Bye. Bye .
