RUSH: Kim in Fresno, and welcome to the EIB Network. Hi.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. How are you?
RUSH: Fine, thank you.
CALLER: Happy Friday!
RUSH: Same to you.
CALLER: Thank you. I have been waiting to make this call for a whole year, and I just wanted to call because you had made a comment at the end of your show a year ago, and you said you were disappointed that nobody had called in to say happy Father’s Day. So I’m calling to say happy Father’s Day.
RUSH: I vaguely remember that.
RUSH: Yeah, you’re right, I did, because then I got a lot of e-mails. ‘Oh, Rush, you’re right. There are a lot of Rush Babies out there to whom you are a surrogate father,’ to which my reply was, ‘Don’t think that that entitles you to child support from me.’ But you’re right, I do remember. That’s very thoughtful of you, but I’m not a father.
CALLER: I know. But I just wanted to give you a little lift by saying happy Father’s Day.
RUSH: Well, thank you very much. That’s very thoughtful, and you’re been waiting a whole year to do this —
CALLER: Yes, I have.
RUSH: And you got in. You actually got through our crowded, overloaded phone system. That means there was karma behind this. This was something that was supposed to happen.
CALLER: Well, exactly, and I thought —
RUSH: By the way, Kim is one of those names in my all time top ten favorite female names.
CALLER: Good. Well, I was making the call, and I called like right after the show started, and I called and called and called, and I thought maybe it just wasn’t meant to be. I wasn’t meant to make this call today, and I thought, ‘No, I can’t give up. That’s just the anti-Rush thing to do.’ So I just kept calling.
RUSH: Exactly right. Well, it was meant to be because it happened.
CALLER: (Giggle.) Right. Well, happy Father’s Day.
RUSH: Thank you, Kim. Same to you.
CALLER: Okay. Bye-bye.
