Kerry: I used to do that when I was a kid, I’d take my clothes off all the time. Miles: You’ve told me that. You were just a free spirit. Kerry: Until I was like 5, yeah. I-I’d just be like… “Oh, we’re at Dennys?” “Take this shit off!”
[laughter from Miles] Gavin: What, you’d just whip your shirt off? Kerry: Oh, everything off. Gavin: Oh! Kerry: Yeah, I’d just get naked in public. They were really afraid of sending me to Kindergarten. They were like, “Kerry, you gotta stop taking your clothes off.” Miles: “Please don’t embarrass the family.” Kerry: Yeah, pretty much. Miles: I’m trying to think, like, as a kid… …I remember my brother and I constantly hiding in the racks of clothing, at department stores. Kerry: Oh, I did that all the time! Miles: That was the best. Kerry: In the circle thing? Miles: Yeah! Kerry: And your mom would call out for you, and you’d wait for her to get close and go “wah!” Miles: Yeah, like you hide from her despite the fact that she’s calling out your name… …on the verge of tears, worried that she lost her child. And you’re like “hahaha, stupid bitch!” Kerry: Oh no, you gotta wait until they cry. Miles: Oh yeah, is that how you win? If mom cries, you win? Gavin: I used to do this thing with my brother, mainly… …and we’d take turns blindfolding each other and spinning each other around. And then you’d just give them instructions. On like, what to do and where to turn. Gavin: And like, part of the fun would be like… making them think that you’re on their side, like “Oh yeah, walk, take a step, turn left…” and they’d be fine. And then immediately walk them into a wall, or something. Gavin: But, the best thing I ever did, was like “I’m gonna set up an obstacle course, and see if you can navigate it.” Kerry: Mhm. Gavin: So like, I pretended to pull all this stuff out. and I was like, “Alright, take a big step, step over this thing…” and I made him, blindfolded, step his foot STRAIGHT into the toilet! It felt so satisfying, yet made me feel bad at the same time. Miles: You know how some people will, like, make up languages… and they’ll talk in make believe languages when they’re young?
Gavin: Yeah. Miles: Uh, so my brother and I sorta did that… except we didn’t make up a language, we’d talk like British people. (snickering) Gavin: Go on, then. Miles: And what that was, was like…
Gus: Yeah, what does that mean? Miles: We wouldn’t be like, “oh ello, whats going on?” we would go… “OI! LESIBOFMEFIBO!” “OHHHHHHH!” Miles: And you always ended it with a… “HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!” Miles: And thats how that would end, and my mother was always mortified, cause we’d go to the grocery store, and go… “OI!” and I’d hold up Lucky Charms and go… “OI, UWANLUCKICHARMMAN?” “NO NO NO NO NO, WHOTTHEPOP!” “WONTHEPOP!” Miles: and then she’d be like… Gus: It’s like you were soccer hooligans before it was cool.
