RUSH: Superior, Wisconsin. Laurie, I'm glad you called. Thank you, and welcome to Open Line Friday.
CALLER: Hi, Rush! It's great to talk to you.
RUSH: Thank you very much.
CALLER: I just want to let you know on Wednesday afternoon I ordered my first case of tea.
RUSH: Oh, you did? Thank you very much.
CALLER: Yep. And I got it this morning and I am just finishing my first bottle.
CALLER: (screaming in the background)
RUSH: No, wait, you ordered it on Tuesday, right?
CALLER: I got it in less than 48 hours.
RUSH: Less than 48 hours. Ah. I love --
CALLER: Nothing that I have ordered online has gotten to me in 48 hours.
RUSH: I love hearing that, and you like it. That's great.
CALLER: I like it. It's wonderful.
RUSH: You're making my day here. Making my day!
RUSH: Snerdley woulda never put this call through. See, that's why it's good to switch call screeners up now and then. I'm so glad that you called and got through. What flavor do you like out there?
CALLER: I got the diet original.
CALLER: And now I'm gonna have to try the raspberry.
RUSH: Yeah, well, that will blow your mind. It's indescribably delicious.
CALLER: Yeah. And can I tell you a story?
RUSH: Sure! By all means. That's what Open Line Friday is all about.
CALLER: Well, I'm not a Rush Baby. I'm a Rush teenager, so I was a teenager when my mom started watching you on TV.
CALLER: And when I went off to college, I had some pressing issue was frantic about something and had to call home long distance to my mom and the first thing she said was, "I can't talk now 'cause Rush is on."
RUSH: Oh-ho! A mom after my heart. Putting kids in their proper place.
CALLER: I was flabbergasted at the time, but now I do that to my husband, so --
CALLER: -- the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
RUSH: (laughing) That's fabulous.
CALLER: That's the kind of impact you have on people.
RUSH: Well, I appreciate that. That's really nice of you to say. So your mom put you second to this program and now that you're married, you do the same to your husband?
RUSH: Yeah. How long have you been married?
CALLER: Oh, boy. Seven and a half years.
RUSH: Seven and a half --
CALLER: And I have two Rush Babies.
RUSH: You did a little Rick Perry on me there having to figure out how long you've been married.
CALLER: I know, it's going around.
RUSH: Well, you've definitely got your head on straight, and I am honored to have you in the audience out there, Laurie.
CALLER: Thank you.
RUSH: All right.
CALLER: You have a good one, Rush!
RUSH: That's Laurie in Superior, Wisconsin.
