Back in a post on September 9, I talked about the radio station I listen to at work--FM 107.1. Here in Minnesota, it's where you can find The Cooper Lawrence Show, which I've also talked about in the past. Before Cooper, though, we have The Lori and Julia show--and I speculated that Lori may be something of a secret spanko. I have no direct proof, of course, but I do sometimes wonder about her.
Those thoughts resurfaced last week during an on-air exchange between the two ladies. Julia was starting to go on and on about Oprah coming out and discussing her weight problems--how that really humanized her and you got a hint of the person behind the icon, etc., etc. The only problem was that they had talked about the same thing on the show the day before, and Lori was bored with it, to put it mildly.
Consequently, after Julia threw a few more platitudes Oprah's way, Lori broke in and wondered out loud if the sales of Oprah's magazine were declining, and if that was the reason Oprah was being so confessional--because, she explained, the only time celebrities reveal things about themselves is if they've got something to sell--a new record, a new movie, you name it.
Julia, then, got upset about this cynical view, and the two of them went back and forth for a bit. Julia kept trying to get back to her "Oprah has the same problems as we all do" line, and Lori kept shooting it down, suggesting there had to be an ulterior motive to Oprah's coming out and speaking up about her weight issues. Julia finally just told Lori, "You are being so mean right now."
And Lori started to laugh and replied, "Give me a spanking. I'm being a bad, bad girl".
Shortly thereafter, it was time to stop for some commercials, and this is how they went into the break--
JULIA: We'll be right back after this.
LORI: (laughing) Julia's going to try and turn me over her lap.........and spank me!
JULIA: ...And spank her!
I still don't know if Lori is really a spanko or not--it could just be that she's not averse to a little playful spanking now and then without being totally into it. Whatever the truth is, though--it's fun to listen to!
