Trey Gerrald:

Chelsey goose.

Trey Gerrald:

How are ya?

Chelsey Donn:

Oh, my goodness.

Chelsey Donn:

I'm good.

Chelsey Donn:

Trey.

Chelsey Donn:

I love the chicken, the return of the chicken, or is it a Turkey?

Chelsey Donn:

I don't know either way.

Chelsey Donn:

I like it.

Trey Gerrald:

some, um, feathered bird, whatever.

Chelsey Donn:

It's a bird with feathers.

Chelsey Donn:

I'm good swimming along as usual.

Chelsey Donn:

You know, these recording days just finished Pilates with watch that rock

Chelsey Donn:

So I'm good.

Chelsey Donn:

How was your week?

Trey Gerrald:

My week is going well, you know, it's, um, really beautiful out, which is so nice.

Trey Gerrald:

I'm enjoying, I really do.

Trey Gerrald:

This is funny to have this conversation with someone who lives in LA,

Trey Gerrald:

I like, you know, winter's my least favorite, but I enjoy the change cuz I think, well,

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

I love when it becomes summer.

Chelsey Donn:

My fave

Trey Gerrald:

So I'm enjoying that and I enjoy watching the dogs, sun bathing, even though I

Chelsey Donn:

yes, that's true.

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

Well Chelsey, is there anything that you would like to

VOICEOVER:

Lodge A Complaint.

Trey Gerrald:

about today?

Chelsey Donn:

I've been waiting.

Chelsey Donn:

I think this is more of a conversation, but like I Donn don't understand why we're at this point.

Chelsey Donn:

In the world with technology and where everything is at.

Chelsey Donn:

And I still can't like edit an email.

Trey Gerrald:

What do you mean?

Chelsey Donn:

Like, you know, when you send an email and you make like a stupid typo or

Chelsey Donn:

And like, now you're like, oh my God, I just wanna change this.

Chelsey Donn:

I just think the email should have more technology, like a few options.

Chelsey Donn:

One, if the person has not opened the email already, and we know that, then I

Chelsey Donn:

If I have to, if the person has opened the email already, I'm fine with it having be,

Chelsey Donn:

Give me an edited.

Chelsey Donn:

I just want a chance to go in there and fix an email.

Chelsey Donn:

Cuz I had like an exchange earlier today where it was like, I was sort of rushing.

Chelsey Donn:

I was trying to get a bunch of things done and I just needed to get the email out.

Chelsey Donn:

So I got it out and then I made a stupid mistake.

Chelsey Donn:

And like, I saw the stupid mistake that I made.

Chelsey Donn:

And then I had to like send an addendum, being like, sorry, made this stupid mistake.

Chelsey Donn:

And then I made another stupid mistake in this correction to this.

Chelsey Donn:

Like, it was just like, I kept messing things up.

Chelsey Donn:

And I was like, if there was just a function within Gmail where I could edit this, even if

Chelsey Donn:

I just think we should be there already as a society personally.

Trey Gerrald:

I agree.

Trey Gerrald:

I also saw that the new iPhone.

Trey Gerrald:

That's coming out will have the ability to unsend text messages

Chelsey Donn:

Oh,

Trey Gerrald:

or correct text messages.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh, that's

Trey Gerrald:

And that's the same, like along the same lines of

Chelsey Donn:

Wait.

Chelsey Donn:

So like, unsend it meaning like if I sent you.

Chelsey Donn:

A photo that I was like, Trey, delete this after you.

Chelsey Donn:

I, I send you this photo or something like that.

Chelsey Donn:

Cuz you know, we always send each other salacious photos of one another.

Chelsey Donn:

So, so if I was doing that and then I was like, I don't really trust Trey.

Chelsey Donn:

I wanna make sure it's really deleted from his phone.

Chelsey Donn:

I could then delete it.

Chelsey Donn:

And it would disappear from your phone.

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

I mean, I guess you could have done a quick screenshot, but, or I could

Chelsey Donn:

so

Trey Gerrald:

Or to edit, but yes, I wish that emails would do that too.

Trey Gerrald:

It is surprising.

Trey Gerrald:

I remember that was one of the like perks about Gmail when it first started was

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

I know even like truly like even if it had to say a little like gray edit in the

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

Cuz it's not like we're dealing with the post anymore.

Trey Gerrald:

It's like, we're not sending a letter that is like done once you send it,

Trey Gerrald:

It's all digital anyway.

Chelsey Donn:

Totally.

Chelsey Donn:

I just wish there was like some sort of an undue.

Chelsey Donn:

I don't know who we can talk to.

Chelsey Donn:

I personally Donn don't know anyone at Gmail, but if you're listening and you do

Chelsey Donn:

We want it.

Chelsey Donn:

We're ready.

Trey Gerrald:

Really good.

Chelsey Donn:

Thanks.

Chelsey Donn:

Trey.

Chelsey Donn:

How about you?

Chelsey Donn:

Have you been longing to complain about something?

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah, this is something that comes up for me every week.

Trey Gerrald:

And it is like, I feel like my complaints often are these like underlying trembling

Chelsey Donn:

Oh my God.

Chelsey Donn:

I hate that.

Trey Gerrald:

hate it.

Trey Gerrald:

Especially when the trash is full and then it's too much.

Chelsey Donn:

No.

Chelsey Donn:

And then you gotta live with your trash for the whole week.

Chelsey Donn:

And then what if like there's too much trash and now what am I waiting until?

Chelsey Donn:

Like, it just, I'm all of a sudden I'm behind.

Trey Gerrald:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

And we keep our trash cans in the garage.

Trey Gerrald:

We Donn don't have like a little fenced

Trey Gerrald:

off area outside.

Trey Gerrald:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

And then it smells to high.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh

Trey Gerrald:

and then I know David's parents that are, you know, more secluded.

Trey Gerrald:

They have little like bungee court actions attached to their trash cans because of bears.

Chelsey Donn:

fancy.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh.

Trey Gerrald:

Well, you don't want the bears to get you.

Trey Gerrald:

I mean, maybe it's not bears in New Jersey, but it's like rodents and outdoor animals.

Trey Gerrald:

Like they, you know, with their little digits, they can open the trash cans.

Trey Gerrald:

Anyway, I really hate it because it's a moment of like, oh, I made a mistake

Chelsey Donn:

You Donn, Donn don't have anyone to blame except for yourself.

Chelsey Donn:

Those are the worst kind of annoyances, cuz you're like, it is my fault.

Chelsey Donn:

I did mess it up.

Chelsey Donn:

I still don't like it.

Chelsey Donn:

Still gonna Kvetch about it.

Trey Gerrald:

That's my Complaint, cuz it really does bug me.

Trey Gerrald:

And I, I always like for the amount of thought that goes into missing trash day, why can't I

Trey Gerrald:

Why, why, why

Chelsey Donn:

Why why Murphy

Trey Gerrald:

it is Murphy?

Trey Gerrald:

Damn you Murphy.

Chelsey Donn:

Damn you Murphy.

Trey Gerrald:

All right.

Trey Gerrald:

Well, that's my

Chelsey Donn:

Uh, I feel better.

Chelsey Donn:

I think maybe we should like dig in to some other people's S and so they could feel better.

Trey Gerrald:

I think I would like to take a Complaint and go, Hey, with your

Chelsey Donn:

Let's do it.

Trey Gerrald:

Complaint.

Trey Gerrald:

Let's

VOICEOVER:

Asses That Kvetch.

Trey Gerrald:

and listeners today is yet another versus episode, which means today Chelsey and

Trey Gerrald:

Today's topic of choice will be Noah's arc water park,

Chelsey Donn:

That's right for this versus episode, Trey selected the

Chelsey Donn:

So to determine who reads first, we gotta flip that quota.

Chelsey Donn:

Do you got that quota at the ready Trey

Trey Gerrald:

Donn.

Chelsey Donn:

heads?

Trey Gerrald:

It's heads.

Chelsey Donn:

my goodness.

Chelsey Donn:

I'm correct.

Chelsey Donn:

All right.

Trey Gerrald:

Chelsey will read first.

Trey Gerrald:

So let me share with you listeners in case you have never

Trey Gerrald:

been, here's a little backstory on Noah's arc water park.

Trey Gerrald:

It's located in Wisconsin and it is in Wisconsin Dells, which I found out as like the water capital

Chelsey Donn:

Oh, that's not besides the point.

Chelsey Donn:

That's a part of the point,

Trey Gerrald:

That's a part of the

Chelsey Donn:

I think

Trey Gerrald:

Noah's arc water park is located on 70 sprawling acres in the heart of the Wisconsin.

Trey Gerrald:

Dells Noah's arc is recognized as Donn dun dun the largest waterpark in America, and

Chelsey Donn:

probably.

Trey Gerrald:

Interesting to note, within the thrill rides category, there is a

Trey Gerrald:

Inappropriate.

Chelsey Donn:

Wow.

Chelsey Donn:

That's,

Trey Gerrald:

one needs to go that

Chelsey Donn:

that's very fast on just your person.

Trey Gerrald:

Can a golf cart go 35 miles an hour.

Chelsey Donn:

I mean, I don't think so.

Chelsey Donn:

That feels

Trey Gerrald:

that seems really fast.

Trey Gerrald:

That's like the that's faster than like the speed limit inside of like a little

Chelsey Donn:

Do you think you're on one of those like tube things or like those flat things?

Chelsey Donn:

Or do you think you're just bare bear?

Chelsey Donn:

I was gonna say assing.

Chelsey Donn:

It

Trey Gerrald:

have to be on a thing, right.

Chelsey Donn:

I would think

Trey Gerrald:

That's

Trey Gerrald:

really

Chelsey Donn:

very fast.

Chelsey Donn:

It would have to be very looped up for you to go on there without anything underneath you

Trey Gerrald:

I mean, so scary.

Trey Gerrald:

All right.

Trey Gerrald:

So there are 2,845 reviews for Noah's arc water park on trip advisor at the time of this recording

Trey Gerrald:

So with all of that background info on Noah's arc, let's get into this versus

Trey Gerrald:

Weee.

VOICEOVER:

Review That Review.

Chelsey Donn:

here we go.

Chelsey Donn:

I'm here to defend Noah's arc water park.

Chelsey Donn:

This is a five star review.

Chelsey Donn:

It is written by Reagan F

Trey Gerrald:

Okay.

Chelsey Donn:

the subject is amazing summer experience for the

Chelsey Donn:

In this case, five dots.

Chelsey Donn:

I've never written a review before, but I noticed some negative reviews for this

Chelsey Donn:

My family, and I decided to get season passes to this water park this year.

Chelsey Donn:

And I was pleasantly surprised by the experience over the course of the summer.

Chelsey Donn:

We've been able to go a little more than half a dozen times so far.

Chelsey Donn:

Every time we go, the park is kept extremely clean and the staff is extraordinarily pleasant.

Chelsey Donn:

Minus the few exceptions you'll find anywhere.

Chelsey Donn:

While you do have to stand in some lines.

Chelsey Donn:

It really depends on the day you go.

Chelsey Donn:

And what time of year when we went twice in the same week, just the day

Chelsey Donn:

The first day, we were able to go on eight rides in just an hour and a half.

Chelsey Donn:

However, the second day in two hours, we were only able to get on three or four.

Chelsey Donn:

Please know that three to four rides in two hours is still pretty good as that would

Chelsey Donn:

While at the beginning of the year, some slides were closed personally.

Chelsey Donn:

I would find it worth it because of less traffic.

Chelsey Donn:

In addition, I saw multiple reviews complaining about the chilly temperature of the water,

Chelsey Donn:

It is Wisconsin and people go to a water park to cool off and escape from the heat.

Chelsey Donn:

So the water is bound to be cool.

Chelsey Donn:

The park does an incredible job of having areas and rides.

Chelsey Donn:

For those of all ages, the young ones have three smaller splash pads and one larger area,

Chelsey Donn:

I truly hope this helps people deterred because of other negative reviews.

Trey Gerrald:

Interesting Reagan.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

This is an interesting review.

Trey Gerrald:

right?

Trey Gerrald:

It, well, literally the very first thing I wrote down.

Trey Gerrald:

Is my skepticism, uh, because it is very interesting for someone.

Trey Gerrald:

I mean, Hey, wait, I'm a walking hypocrite because I've really never written a ne

Trey Gerrald:

I've never written a review before, but they can quote tons of, uh, points about reviews

Trey Gerrald:

Like they've been doing a lot of research on the negative reviews, so they mention

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

So when I first read Reagan F's review, I was very suspicious, which is why I thought I

Chelsey Donn:

There's not a lot of personality, even though we were giving details, the details felt like

Chelsey Donn:

We went this many times.

Chelsey Donn:

Like it felt a little bit wrote the interesting thing for me about that.

Chelsey Donn:

I've never written a review before premise or preface, I guess I should say is.

Chelsey Donn:

I don't know if it makes me more or less suspicious, cuz in a way

Chelsey Donn:

You're being honest.

Chelsey Donn:

Are you just doing that?

Chelsey Donn:

Because I can see that you've only had one contribution or are you doing that?

Chelsey Donn:

Because you like actually, you know, like I Donn Donn don't know it's hard, you know, cuz

Chelsey Donn:

I'm cur I, I almost said that I should have gone second, which I'm feeling like

Chelsey Donn:

Cuz I wasn't like thumbing through the One-Star-Zinger reviews, but it does make me

Chelsey Donn:

Sorry.

Chelsey Donn:

I would think they were complaining about.

Chelsey Donn:

The water being cold.

Chelsey Donn:

Some of the rides being closed and long lines, I would guess, would be, and like maybe, maybe

Chelsey Donn:

But I Donn don't know.

Chelsey Donn:

I mean, there is a part of me that buys this narrative because Reagan seems like the kind of

Chelsey Donn:

And maybe in this case they were like, you know what, I'm gonna go anyway.

Chelsey Donn:

And then when they had a good experience, they were like other people shouldn't be

Chelsey Donn:

So if they're scrolling through some negative reviews, here's things that will maybe

Chelsey Donn:

I don't

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

I mean, I specifically wrote down the day to day is a hugely different experience.

Trey Gerrald:

Also Reagan points out seasonally it's different,

Chelsey Donn:

Right,

Trey Gerrald:

which I wrote down.

Trey Gerrald:

Cause I was like, oh, that's such a great point.

Trey Gerrald:

But then when I thought about it a little more, I was like, well, duh.

Trey Gerrald:

Like wouldn't you expect that a Tuesday would be less busy than a Saturday.

Trey Gerrald:

And wouldn't you think that the summer would be more busy than the winter, but,

Chelsey Donn:

I would think.

Chelsey Donn:

Yes.

Chelsey Donn:

But then at the same time, Donn, don't you think a lot of people in the summer are

Trey Gerrald:

well, I I'm gonna take Reagan at face value.

Trey Gerrald:

I, there is some suspicion for me because of the, like waving of the red flag that

Trey Gerrald:

It just feels a little like, um, I don't know.

Trey Gerrald:

And maybe like there, it could be, there's no malice here.

Trey Gerrald:

It's genuinely, like, I Donn don't know why I saw these negative reviews.

Trey Gerrald:

It was great for us, you know?

Trey Gerrald:

And

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Chelsey Donn:

That's

Trey Gerrald:

you that you're gonna wait a little longer on day to day, but.

Trey Gerrald:

I guess the energy of wanting to dispel experiences that you haven't personally felt.

Trey Gerrald:

I don't know why that should even ring as suspicious, but it does

Trey Gerrald:

I Donn, I guess maybe I don't understand weather to me where, where is Wisconsin on the map?

Trey Gerrald:

I thought that Wisconsin was like cold.

Chelsey Donn:

In the summer, Wisconsin can get really hot.

Trey Gerrald:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

But for some reason, I think if Wisconsin is like snowy.

Chelsey Donn:

Also that sentence was like really confusing.

Chelsey Donn:

The one that was written there was like no punctuation in that sentence.

Chelsey Donn:

And it was a little hard to tell exactly what they meant.

Trey Gerrald:

Hmm.

Trey Gerrald:

So if I'm, so I know my in-laws, once again, I keep bringing them up this episode, but they

Trey Gerrald:

And I know that it's very expensive to heat the

Chelsey Donn:

Yes, it is.

Trey Gerrald:

I am imagining that like, if this is a 70 acre

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Chelsey Donn:

The water's gonna be cold because they can't keep

Trey Gerrald:

well, I would imagine like you can't heat it, especially if it is outdoors, like,

Chelsey Donn:

And like, to be fair, I feel like how weird would it be to have a warm water park?

Chelsey Donn:

Like, I mean, maybe as an adult, you'd be like, lovely, like a lazy river, but like, if

Chelsey Donn:

And I think that that's the

Trey Gerrald:

correct.

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

You, yeah, no, I get that.

Trey Gerrald:

So, okay.

Trey Gerrald:

Off the bat, I think the value unique information, like it is hitting me and occurring to me.

Trey Gerrald:

be conscious of what you're contributing to the possible experience you're

Trey Gerrald:

And I also am getting okay.

Trey Gerrald:

If, if it's possible to hit three to four rides in four hours in two hours.

Trey Gerrald:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

That's probably good.

Trey Gerrald:

I mean, I imagine if it's the largest park in America, there's gonna be lots of people.

Chelsey Donn:

Reagan does a good job of managing expectations, which I appreciate

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

So you mentioned the spelling error.

Trey Gerrald:

What else is, is there going on there?

Chelsey Donn:

it just wasn't great.

Chelsey Donn:

We had a lot of run on sentences.

Chelsey Donn:

Um, it wasn't terrible, but I definitely wouldn't give it a perfect score.

Chelsey Donn:

It's very interesting to me because.

Chelsey Donn:

I am feeling a little bit of the vibe of what I say.

Chelsey Donn:

I really love in a Review Queen, which is that balance, right?

Chelsey Donn:

Like I don't trust a review if a review is just like, this is the most

Chelsey Donn:

It's amazing.

Chelsey Donn:

I love it.

Chelsey Donn:

You're gonna love it.

Chelsey Donn:

We're all gonna love it.

Chelsey Donn:

Yay.

Chelsey Donn:

We're loving it.

Chelsey Donn:

Like I just, I don't believe you, like, I like having a positive review that says, yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

You know what?

Chelsey Donn:

I did have to wait in line.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

You know what?

Chelsey Donn:

It was a little bit cold.

Chelsey Donn:

Like I appreciate that.

Chelsey Donn:

Like, I still think you can have a five star review and be really impactful

Chelsey Donn:

I think so normally that's all great.

Chelsey Donn:

And I think that Reagan does that really well.

Chelsey Donn:

I think where I'm struggling.

Chelsey Donn:

Is because we said that we've never written a review before, because we're addressing

Chelsey Donn:

But there's something within that that makes me feel like I Donn don't 100% trust you, Reagan.

Chelsey Donn:

I don't know.

Chelsey Donn:

Is it just us?

Chelsey Donn:

Cuz we're so like jaded and we've been doing this for so long.

Trey Gerrald:

Well, okay.

Trey Gerrald:

But, but speaking in this question to truthful or shady, to your point, once again, I appreciated

Trey Gerrald:

happen

Chelsey Donn:

happen.

Chelsey Donn:

Right,

Trey Gerrald:

It, it kind of occurs to me.

Trey Gerrald:

I'm formulating this story now for who I think Reagan is, I feel like it's probably

Trey Gerrald:

I don't think it's necessarily the CEO's wife that's writing the review.

Trey Gerrald:

Like I don't necessarily think it's planted per se, more so than like wanting to give the

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah,

Trey Gerrald:

That's how it's occurring to me.

Trey Gerrald:

So I kind of think they're being truthful, especially playing the ying and the yang

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

But do you think this is gonna

Chelsey Donn:

I thought something else.

Chelsey Donn:

I just Donn wanna point out one other shady thing that like, again, maybe me, but there was

Chelsey Donn:

And I decided to get season passes to this water park this year.

Chelsey Donn:

And I was pleasantly surprised by the experience.

Chelsey Donn:

That's like one of the first sentences.

Chelsey Donn:

There's something about that, that I'm like, why would you buy a season

Chelsey Donn:

Like you bought a season pass and then you're surprised that it was a good experience.

Chelsey Donn:

Wouldn't you be like.

Chelsey Donn:

We went, we were surprised by the good experience.

Chelsey Donn:

So we bought a season pass.

Chelsey Donn:

And if there weren't, if there was like a specific reason, like they were doing this special

Chelsey Donn:

Like I Donn know there was like some sort of ridiculous promotion going on.

Chelsey Donn:

That was incentivizing you.

Chelsey Donn:

Even if you hadn't been to the park, like it's gonna be worth your while.

Chelsey Donn:

Even if you think you might come one other time

Trey Gerrald:

Commit

Trey Gerrald:

now.

Chelsey Donn:

this annual pass.

Chelsey Donn:

But if that were the case for Reagan, I feel like they should have, or would've disclosed.

Chelsey Donn:

Like we bought these, this annual pass.

Chelsey Donn:

Cause we got a good deal on 'em completely shooting the shot into the dark, not knowing if

Chelsey Donn:

And then we actually ended up using it a lot.

Chelsey Donn:

There was something about that sentence of like committing to a full year

Chelsey Donn:

That just put my antenna up.

Trey Gerrald:

no, I can hear where you're coming from with that.

Trey Gerrald:

Like, I, I get that there.

Trey Gerrald:

Like, I didn't even read into that or think that, so.

Trey Gerrald:

Bra BA

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh,

Trey Gerrald:

I just, I, I think it could be typical that you would find negative

Trey Gerrald:

And then you go there and it's sort of like, oh, it's really not that bad.

Trey Gerrald:

I mean, you have to weigh, but you know, and like people were generally nice and like

Trey Gerrald:

It's like, I can sort of see how that might be a typical experience.

Chelsey Donn:

I just think that, that, like, I can see how that would be a typical experience,

Chelsey Donn:

My radar is going a little off with like, whether or not this was a coerced review at very least.

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Chelsey Donn:

Because we're St like the first thing we're starting on is that like, I've never written

Chelsey Donn:

And then, you know, we talk about how we bought the, the year round tickets.

Chelsey Donn:

And then we're pleasantly surprised by the experience like the first,

Chelsey Donn:

I'm like, I Donn know

Trey Gerrald:

Wait, what is the subject again?

Chelsey Donn:

amazing summer experience for the whole family.

Chelsey Donn:

Like, it just feels so

Trey Gerrald:

Wait,

Chelsey Donn:

canned

Trey Gerrald:

wait, wait, wait.

Trey Gerrald:

They say amazing summer experience in the subject.

Trey Gerrald:

And then by the end of their review, they talk about going at the beginning of the year.

Trey Gerrald:

Isn't the beginning of the year, winter

Chelsey Donn:

unless this is like only open for the summer month.

Chelsey Donn:

Let me see where that sentence was.

Trey Gerrald:

but wouldn't you say the beginning of the summer, they're

Trey Gerrald:

It's great.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh, you're right.

Trey Gerrald:

that curious

Chelsey Donn:

That is interesting.

Chelsey Donn:

While at the beginning of the year, some slides were closed personally.

Chelsey Donn:

I would find it worth it because of less traffic

Trey Gerrald:

wait, but if they haven't been there before and they're talking about

Trey Gerrald:

So when did they get the

Chelsey Donn:

I feel like this there's no, I mean, we can look this up to verify

Chelsey Donn:

And it is a season pass there.

Chelsey Donn:

This can't be opened year round.

Chelsey Donn:

Is it?

Chelsey Donn:

We gotta verify

Trey Gerrald:

I'm gonna go.

Trey Gerrald:

I'll look right

Chelsey Donn:

because That's, that would be another suspicious thing then

Trey Gerrald:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

They are open may through September,

Chelsey Donn:

may through September.

Chelsey Donn:

So they had to been talking about may.

Trey Gerrald:

but would you call may the beginning of the year?

Trey Gerrald:

Why wouldn't you say the beginning of the season?

Trey Gerrald:

Maybe they meant to say the beginning of the season.

Chelsey Donn:

They must have.

Chelsey Donn:

That's what I'm saying.

Chelsey Donn:

They must have meant to say beginning of the season because it's not opening your round.

Trey Gerrald:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

Also, I'm seeing that there's an update right now that says that there's currently 47 rides.

Trey Gerrald:

I said 40 before.

Trey Gerrald:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

So then, all right.

Trey Gerrald:

So do you think it's humorous?

Trey Gerrald:

Were you entertained?

Trey Gerrald:

No.

Trey Gerrald:

No,

Chelsey Donn:

Oh, no,

Trey Gerrald:

it's pretty, like you said at the beginning, it's pretty, just like,

Trey Gerrald:

My name's Reagan, my last name starts with F

Chelsey Donn:

I wasn't entertained.

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Chelsey Donn:

Totally.

Chelsey Donn:

And, and I, and I wanna just, you know, say that there's credit there is value there.

Chelsey Donn:

I don't think it's a value list.

Chelsey Donn:

It's for me, it's more about the trust.

Chelsey Donn:

How much am I trusting Reagan?

Chelsey Donn:

And, and at very least do I not like that they work at the park

Chelsey Donn:

There's a little bit of, uh, some it's a little suspicious.

Chelsey Donn:

I think I'm ready to crown

Trey Gerrald:

I think I can crown Reagan as well.

Trey Gerrald:

Let's do it.

Trey Gerrald:

Okay.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

So Chelsey and I each have our own set of zero to five crown cards in an

Trey Gerrald:

We will simultaneously reveal our ratings.

VOICEOVER:

Queens are Tabulating

VOICEOVER:

chose.

Chelsey Donn:

Three crowns.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Chelsey Donn:

So I, I went with two and a half crowns.

Chelsey Donn:

I was deciding between two and a half and three.

Chelsey Donn:

Tell me why you decided on three.

Trey Gerrald:

I said three, because I do feel like there is valuable information in here.

Trey Gerrald:

I see that this could be truthful.

Trey Gerrald:

I do sort of, no, I'm unsure if I can trust the reviewer's commitment to being generous to

Trey Gerrald:

And so for that reason, I felt a little bit.

Trey Gerrald:

I can't this, this singular review does not erase negative reviews to me,

Trey Gerrald:

So that's why I said three, cuz I feel very sort of like, I don't know.

Trey Gerrald:

I need to read more.

Trey Gerrald:

Why did you say two and a half?

Trey Gerrald:

ChelseyBD.

Chelsey Donn:

I said two and a half, because for me personally, obviously

Chelsey Donn:

No harm, no foul here.

Chelsey Donn:

I Donn Donn don't think that Reagan is malicious.

Chelsey Donn:

I don't think Reagan is doing anything necessarily wrong, but I just don't

Chelsey Donn:

I'm a personality girl.

Chelsey Donn:

I'm realizing more and more as we read through these reviews that I really like

Chelsey Donn:

I love when that comes across and that just didn't come across here.

Chelsey Donn:

So any of my like Piza points, I couldn't really offer those to Reagan.

Chelsey Donn:

I do wanna sort of reserve my additional half crown for after I hear the One-Star-Zinger review.

Chelsey Donn:

Just to see, maybe I'll, maybe I'll understand where Reagan's coming from a

Chelsey Donn:

So I will hold that half crown for Reagan to possibly bring her or him to a full three crown.

Chelsey Donn:

But that is to be determined

Trey Gerrald:

When did Reagan write this review by the way?

Chelsey Donn:

20, 21.

Chelsey Donn:

So last season, I guess

Trey Gerrald:

All right.

Trey Gerrald:

Well, very interesting.

Trey Gerrald:

I'm I feel like it's funny, cuz I feel like, um, I was more receptive

Chelsey Donn:

In the end.

Chelsey Donn:

I really took a, I feel like I took a full like water slide,

Trey Gerrald:

Well, you're, you're still on it.

Trey Gerrald:

You haven't hit the splash yet.

Trey Gerrald:

Let's see what happens when we come back from our break.

Trey Gerrald:

All right, we'll take a quick break and then we'll hear a completely different side of this 35 mile

Trey Gerrald:

Bye.

Chelsey Donn:

top seed twirly, loopy journey with Reagan.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh, you're right.

Chelsey Donn:

Let's see what happens.

Chelsey Donn:

Can't wait, love it.

Chelsey Donn:

Bye.

VOICEOVER:

Hold your crown.

VOICEOVER:

We'll be right back.

Trey Gerrald:

It's game time, Chelsey.

Trey Gerrald:

It's time for you to get a dose of your own medicine.

Trey Gerrald:

Are you ready to play, ride or review?

Trey Gerrald:

Is it all right?

Trey Gerrald:

Or is it a review Ty to you?

Trey Gerrald:

Got it.

Trey Gerrald:

Tell me right now.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh my goodness.

Chelsey Donn:

I'm so excited.

Trey Gerrald:

without ChelseyBD knowing.

Chelsey Donn:

really sprung this on me.

Chelsey Donn:

You guys, I didn't know this was gonna happen, so I'm like nervous and excited.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh my God.

Trey Gerrald:

Without ChelseyBD knowing I have prepared a game for ChelseyBD and the genre that

Trey Gerrald:

So today Chelsey, we're gonna play ride or review.

Trey Gerrald:

So I'm gonna, and listeners obviously play along.

Trey Gerrald:

So I'm going to let, I'm going to say a title.

Trey Gerrald:

The title is either the name of a ride at an amusement park, or it's the subject

Trey Gerrald:

So I will state it.

Trey Gerrald:

You will hear the timer.

Trey Gerrald:

It will go give you three beeps and then you'll say ride or review.

Trey Gerrald:

Correct?

Trey Gerrald:

You never know listeners when we might pull out a secret new game, just saying.

Trey Gerrald:

Even we might not know.

Chelsey Donn:

Chelsey Donn:

Did you get more than five, more than six, more than seven call in and leave a voice message.

Chelsey Donn:

1 8, 5 0 review zero.

Chelsey Donn:

Let us know how you did.

Chelsey Donn:

Let us know if you beat me.

Chelsey Donn:

Maybe if you did, I'll send you some merch just saying, call us up,

Trey Gerrald:

And that has been our first edition of his set ride on his, which is it

Chelsey Donn:

which is it.

VOICEOVER:

Review That Review.

Chelsey Donn:

All right.

Chelsey Donn:

We are back from that browsing game break, that browsing brand new, one of a kind game

Chelsey Donn:

And now Trey, Trey.

Chelsey Donn:

It is your turn to show us the flip side of the argument.

Chelsey Donn:

So what AV brought for us today?

Trey Gerrald:

Okeydoke.

Trey Gerrald:

So today I have the one.review for Noah's arc.

Trey Gerrald:

This is written by user time flies, 37.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

And this was written in August of 2014.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh, okay.

Trey Gerrald:

So quite a time gap,

Chelsey Donn:

time flies.

Chelsey Donn:

27 47, 30, 37 time flies.

Chelsey Donn:

37.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

more public.

Trey Gerrald:

We visit my brother in Wisconsin every year and travel all the way from Ontario to do so.

Trey Gerrald:

It's an annual event to attend a water park in the Dells while we are there.

Trey Gerrald:

This has been going on for over 15 years.

Trey Gerrald:

Now.

Trey Gerrald:

We went to Noah's arc last Friday, August 15th.

Trey Gerrald:

I'm writing to tell you how disappointed we were.

Trey Gerrald:

We chose not to do the $15 pass at Mount Olympus in favor of Noah's arc,

Trey Gerrald:

Coupled with the fact that Noah's Ark claims to be the quote largest water park

Trey Gerrald:

There may have been more, but consequently, the spillover to other areas of the park

Trey Gerrald:

If you advertise that you are the largest waterpark end quote, then closing many

Trey Gerrald:

And therefore the advertising is misleading.

Trey Gerrald:

I rarely take the time to share concerns, but in this case, it was a dismal

Trey Gerrald:

There was 10 of us, sadly, next year, we will likely choose one of the places we have

Trey Gerrald:

For travelers, I would make sure to ask what attractions are canceled

Trey Gerrald:

We only got part of it because they only mentioned two things on the

Trey Gerrald:

And when I approached someone who worked there, he only told me of three

Trey Gerrald:

It really does add up respectfully L P I think that, um, time flies, like copy, pasted their

Chelsey Donn:

Initials is LP.

Trey Gerrald:

And they just put it into their review.

Trey Gerrald:

Hmm.

Trey Gerrald:

Okay.

Chelsey Donn:

Interesting.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Chelsey Donn:

So this is where I was a little bit confused.

Chelsey Donn:

So you usually go to this place Mount Olympus, and you thought that going to the largest

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah,

Chelsey Donn:

like.

Chelsey Donn:

When we decided to do the idea of having a water park comparison, you know, cuz it's the end of

Chelsey Donn:

We both came upon this very quickly.

Chelsey Donn:

So if it's the largest waterpark are just water park in America and you're visiting anywhere near

Chelsey Donn:

So the fact that you thought that it would be less crowded, did you think it would be less crowded

Trey Gerrald:

that's a good point.

Chelsey Donn:

So that was the first thing that I was like, uh, I don't know.

Trey Gerrald:

A quick, Google showed me there's over 20 water parks in Wisconsin.

Trey Gerrald:

Dells.

Chelsey Donn:

Oh, wow.

Chelsey Donn:

That's a lot of water parks.

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

I thought

Chelsey Donn:

must just be like water park central.

Trey Gerrald:

it is.

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

It is right.

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

It's the largest concentration of indoor and outdoor water parks on earth apparently.

Chelsey Donn:

oh, wow.

Trey Gerrald:

And they are called water park capital of the world.

Chelsey Donn:

That is very interesting.

Chelsey Donn:

Ooh.

Chelsey Donn:

Hm.

Trey Gerrald:

it could be conceivable that for 15 years you haven't come

Chelsey Donn:

Well, what's interesting to me in the preface is that it's, I'm like,

Chelsey Donn:

It almost does because it's like, if for 15 years time flies has been like going around to

Chelsey Donn:

Maybe their review does hold more weight cuz they're, you know, haha does hold more water,

Trey Gerrald:

correct.

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

Also, what do you think of the opening claim about wanting to do it privately,

Chelsey Donn:

I mean, I, yes.

Chelsey Donn:

Like I think that that's annoying and I guess I understand the process, I

Chelsey Donn:

So I do respect the decision to want an opt out.

Chelsey Donn:

I think it's very weird that there's not an opt out.

Chelsey Donn:

Like I'm, you know, there should be an opt out.

Trey Gerrald:

yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

I wonder if like that's something from back in 2014, like I Donn don't

Chelsey Donn:

not

Trey Gerrald:

like, how can you not communicate without signing up for the newsletter?

Trey Gerrald:

Like, do you, you don't think there's a contact, like can't

Chelsey Donn:

Well, I guess the contact, I don't know, like maybe it doesn't let you uncheck it.

Chelsey Donn:

I Donn know a little strange

Trey Gerrald:

But couldn't you just find like Noah's arc waterpark at Gmail or

Trey Gerrald:

It's time flies who cares?

Chelsey Donn:

I mean, yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

Time flies and has time flies.

Chelsey Donn:

Do you know how under their name?

Chelsey Donn:

It says like the number of contributions do, can we see if they've made other contributions?

Trey Gerrald:

They have six contributions.

Trey Gerrald:

I don't know.

Trey Gerrald:

And when

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Chelsey Donn:

All right.

Chelsey Donn:

So I think the time flies made one point that I thought was very interesting that

Chelsey Donn:

Can you still call yourself the largest water park in America?

Chelsey Donn:

If a number of your attractions are closed down.

Trey Gerrald:

All right.

Trey Gerrald:

So in your review, we discussed some common negative reviews that Reagan F was finding.

Trey Gerrald:

And I will tell you, I found time flies review on the eighth page of

Chelsey Donn:

Hmm.

Trey Gerrald:

So frequent my question is what causes a water ride to close?

Trey Gerrald:

Maybe someone pees in it or something.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah, I was gonna say pee poop.

Chelsey Donn:

Someone got hurt.

Chelsey Donn:

Maybe the there's a, there's something wrong with the slide it's leaking.

Trey Gerrald:

But it is like a very common also I did notice a lot of complaints about cold water

Chelsey Donn:

Right,

Trey Gerrald:

and then people being rude, but that didn't come up more so

Trey Gerrald:

Like I would definitely say parts of the

Chelsey Donn:

do think that's an, I do think that's an interesting point because it's like,

Chelsey Donn:

It is sort of like par for the course.

Chelsey Donn:

You just, you kind of just accept it.

Chelsey Donn:

Like you don't like it.

Chelsey Donn:

I'm pissed.

Chelsey Donn:

If like one of my favorite rides is down, it sucks.

Trey Gerrald:

But I don't think of it as like that doesn't occur to me that often, like, I don't

Trey Gerrald:

So as I experienced it, reading through the reviews of this park, like, yes, I've

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Chelsey Donn:

And that's what I'm wondering, because this is the largest park and, and the

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Chelsey Donn:

Two on the sign and then three from the guy, and then it was actually four.

Chelsey Donn:

All right.

Chelsey Donn:

Like,

Trey Gerrald:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

Well you say petty, cuz that did occur to me at two ways.

Trey Gerrald:

Did it, did the, did the other ones break or did they shut them down?

Trey Gerrald:

After you saw the sign or were they intentionally misleading or yes, that's

Trey Gerrald:

And that will obviously deter people.

Trey Gerrald:

Maybe they, maybe the park is being shady.

Trey Gerrald:

And if so, I will want to say, can you guarantee me when I pay and go through the

Trey Gerrald:

Time flies felt like they were intentionally being duped.

Chelsey Donn:

Right.

Chelsey Donn:

And time flies goes to a lot of water parks, presumably.

Chelsey Donn:

So they might know what is like normal closures.

Chelsey Donn:

I just did think that there was a world in which they got to the park.

Chelsey Donn:

There were two rides down.

Chelsey Donn:

They were marked on the thing.

Chelsey Donn:

They went to, someone else had been updated and the sign had been updated that there

Chelsey Donn:

I can understand how that would be annoying.

Chelsey Donn:

I don't know how many attractions are at this water

Trey Gerrald:

I was just, I was just

Trey Gerrald:

gonna say that

Chelsey Donn:

in the like thrill category, if that's like what?

Chelsey Donn:

I assume these people, if there were like regular enthusiasts, they probably want the big rides.

Trey Gerrald:

I was just gonna go there because in our background

Trey Gerrald:

So maybe in 2014, I mean, I don't think they probably built 20 more

Trey Gerrald:

Like if is foreclosures out of 47

Chelsey Donn:

Well, I think it, I think it depends on the category because they

Chelsey Donn:

So if you figure 40 rides 2014, so it's gotta be 40 or less.

Chelsey Donn:

So 40 rides.

Chelsey Donn:

And even if you're just dividing those evenly 10 of those are gonna be like little kid rides.

Chelsey Donn:

So take those out.

Chelsey Donn:

So that's 30 then like 10 of them are gonna be like less like thrill seeking attractions.

Chelsey Donn:

So maybe 20 rides are the kind of rides that if you were an enthusiast you'd wanna ride.

Chelsey Donn:

If four of those 20 rides were gone and you have to wait in line and now the lines are long,

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah, exactly.

Chelsey Donn:

Exactly.

Trey Gerrald:

but that I do think is the most compelling part of time flies the review.

Trey Gerrald:

And, and you mentioned it at the top here is like, can you claim that you are the

Chelsey Donn:

I think that was a very good point.

Chelsey Donn:

And I, I was with them.

Chelsey Donn:

I was not sure if we were dealing with a little bit of a Karen or a Ken, to be honest

Trey Gerrald:

I know.

Chelsey Donn:

the beginning, I was like, Ooh, you seem like you like have a bone

Trey Gerrald:

Well, to be fair, I do think within the characterization of who this reviewer is, and

Trey Gerrald:

It does occur to me.

Trey Gerrald:

To me, it might not be a big deal.

Trey Gerrald:

If four things are closed, cuz I don't do this every year and I'm not going to

Trey Gerrald:

So to me, I don't care.

Trey Gerrald:

But if you are someone who has been to all these other ones for 15 years and it's a whole

Trey Gerrald:

You're from Canada and you're positive or positive.

Trey Gerrald:

Like it's gonna have a larger impact.

Chelsey Donn:

What did you think about the declaration of a dismal day

Trey Gerrald:

I love that.

Trey Gerrald:

I love the phrase dismal.

Trey Gerrald:

I think That's so funny.

Chelsey Donn:

dismal day?

Chelsey Donn:

I was just thinking in that moment, like what did actually happen?

Chelsey Donn:

So you waited in line for 45 minutes, spent an entire day riding rise, but didn't

Trey Gerrald:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

Wait, I'm just remembering, we talked about this on the podcast, but when we

Chelsey Donn:

yeah, yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

When you surprised your nephew, you mean?

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

When we took him and like some of the, you know, there's like, I Donn Donn, I Donn know

Trey Gerrald:

And some of them were like the very cool ones that we had looked at YouTube videos on the way.

Trey Gerrald:

But like, that's not like I didn't even like, remember that I didn't get the opportunity.

Chelsey Donn:

I think what this is getting us to, which I think is a big assessment for

Chelsey Donn:

Like is time flies, 37, just a part of the audience that is gonna be super bummed.

Chelsey Donn:

Like if they were at six flags the day that you were there and those rides

Chelsey Donn:

Maybe it would be.

Chelsey Donn:

And does everybody go in with that same expectation or.

Chelsey Donn:

If it's between time flies and Reagan is Reagan the type of person that

Chelsey Donn:

Like, yeah, there's a couple closures, but whatever.

Chelsey Donn:

I still got to ride X amount of rides and I still had a great day.

Chelsey Donn:

Whereas time flies is more like, this is something that's gonna ruin.

Chelsey Donn:

They're not gonna be able to get the fact that the big una ride is closed off their minds long

Chelsey Donn:

And I think that is where we're falling right now is that we have two people whose opinions

Trey Gerrald:

The way they relate to these experiences.

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

differently.

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

I think that this episode more than any of our other verses is really highlighting different

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

Cuz if you just didn't care and you were just going and you were there for a good time,

Trey Gerrald:

Well, so time flies, 37th credit here.

Trey Gerrald:

I think for whatever reason, it doesn't occur as shady to me, it occurs as truthful.

Trey Gerrald:

And it do like, I do actually trust that they did want to just communicate.

Trey Gerrald:

Like we were very disappointed.

Trey Gerrald:

We do this every year.

Trey Gerrald:

We've been to so many of your competitors.

Trey Gerrald:

We were really looking forward to this experience and it really disappointed us, like the fact

Trey Gerrald:

Like I, and how they even end with respectfully.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

I mean,

Chelsey Donn:

I think I'm ready to crown time flies.

Trey Gerrald:

The only question I wanna ask though is like, is this humorous or entertaining?

Trey Gerrald:

Like, I, I, that's kind of missing for me.

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

Not like in an overt way, but I'll get into a little more of that in my crowning.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Trey Gerrald:

All right, so let's crown.

Trey Gerrald:

Here we go.

VOICEOVER:

Queens are Tabulating.

VOICEOVER:

Go to.

Chelsey Donn:

Okay.

Chelsey Donn:

Trey is holding up four crowns.

Chelsey Donn:

I'm holding up three and a half crowns.

Chelsey Donn:

I went with three and a half crowns because I know we started to talk about

Chelsey Donn:

For me, it really is about like, do I feel like this is a real person?

Chelsey Donn:

Like, can I connect with this and, and feel this is an authentic story.

Chelsey Donn:

And I really feel like that's where time flies pulled ahead for me this episode, because they

Chelsey Donn:

They do this, I know who they are for 15 years.

Chelsey Donn:

They've been doing this and.

Chelsey Donn:

Really convinced me with their argument about the, can you call it the largest park?

Chelsey Donn:

So I just feel like there was a little bit more, um, a little more energy and a little more

Chelsey Donn:

I think it's hard when you get on a soapbox and you're sort of speaking like, you know,

Chelsey Donn:

Like it's just it's too much.

Chelsey Donn:

And I did appreciate that.

Chelsey Donn:

I couldn't go more than the three and a half because I thought it was possible that

Chelsey Donn:

And I don't know that this is a One-Star-Zinger park.

Chelsey Donn:

Uh, I believe that this was a One-Star-Zinger experience for time flies.

Chelsey Donn:

And why did you go with four Trey?

Trey Gerrald:

so I went with four, honestly.

Trey Gerrald:

I kind of, for your reasonings, I kind of felt like I understood.

Trey Gerrald:

The persona of time flies.

Trey Gerrald:

And I think they were presenting really valid points.

Trey Gerrald:

And what I thought was unique and interesting, whether I interpreted a different way from you

Trey Gerrald:

It doesn't seem like they don't you're right.

Trey Gerrald:

They're not having that experience.

Trey Gerrald:

And ultimately I'm leaving today's episode.

Trey Gerrald:

Really curious what causes all of these water park rides to close, because there are, there were,

Trey Gerrald:

But some other One-Star-Zinger mentioned, there's only two people working

Trey Gerrald:

That's slowing everything down.

Trey Gerrald:

So I'm wondering like, is it employment.

Trey Gerrald:

Right.

Trey Gerrald:

Why is that such a common note for this waterpark that I think has a lasting impact?

Trey Gerrald:

For me, it might be a deal breaker for me, honestly, for Noahs Ark.

Trey Gerrald:

So that's why I went with four.

Chelsey Donn:

Fair.

Trey Gerrald:

So now that we've done both of them, are you gonna update

Chelsey Donn:

I think I'm gonna stick with my two and a half for Reagan.

Trey Gerrald:

I think it's solid.

Chelsey Donn:

I still kind of feel similarly to how I felt before, but I just think

Chelsey Donn:

Feel like two and a half is appropriate.

Chelsey Donn:

You didn't do wrong.

Chelsey Donn:

Reagan.

Chelsey Donn:

You did.

Chelsey Donn:

Right, but you're not anything spectacular.

Chelsey Donn:

Sorry.

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah.

Trey Gerrald:

I mean, I think summing up both of them, like what I still gotta know is Ark.

Trey Gerrald:

Yeah, totally.

Trey Gerrald:

Who cares?

Trey Gerrald:

But I'm also not a person.

Trey Gerrald:

I, I can understand how, if you were like, I'm going to Disney to meet Elsa,

Trey Gerrald:

If Elsa calls out sick, that's gonna ruin the experience.

Trey Gerrald:

And I think if you're going to this, Noah's arc to ride that 35 mile an hour

Trey Gerrald:

And that's sort of tough.

Trey Gerrald:

So

Chelsey Donn:

Completely agree.

Trey Gerrald:

it's like going to see, I don't know, wicked and Edina

Trey Gerrald:

And so she called out, then you're gonna be upset cuz you wanted to see Adena men.

Chelsey Donn:

I hate it when I go to a show and that slip is there.

Chelsey Donn:

I get so like nervous.

Trey Gerrald:

it's tough, so,

Trey Gerrald:

Hmm

Chelsey Donn:

also I feel bad for the person on the slip cuz it's like,

Trey Gerrald:

unless you're seeing funny girl,

Chelsey Donn:

that was fun.

Chelsey Donn:

I en I enjoyed that.

Chelsey Donn:

I enjoyed that.

Chelsey Donn:

What did they say, Ted

Trey Gerrald:

hear what I

Chelsey Donn:

Ted on no

Trey Gerrald:

I said, unless you're seeing funny girl,

Chelsey Donn:

too soon.

Chelsey Donn:

Try.

Trey Gerrald:

then people are happy or they're going specifically

Chelsey Donn:

didn't say it.

Trey Gerrald:

there's a slip anyway.

Trey Gerrald:

Might cut it.

Trey Gerrald:

So anyway.

Trey Gerrald:

All right.

Trey Gerrald:

Well, my Queen, that was super fun.

Trey Gerrald:

So now that we're here, I wanna ask you Chelsey, since this is the most Regal portion of our

VOICEOVER:

My Royal Highness!.

Chelsey Donn:

Yes, Trey, there is someone I'd like to induct today.

Chelsey Donn:

This is a little bit more of a somber induction for me, but I did wanna induct Dr.

Chelsey Donn:

J Goldberg, who was my OB GYN, who recently passed away.

Chelsey Donn:

It's very heartbreaking for me.

Chelsey Donn:

And a lot of people, he was an amazing doctor, kind of a little bit of a celebrity doctor.

Chelsey Donn:

Not that you would know that if you went to him, I went to him for years and didn't

Chelsey Donn:

He performed surgery on me and he passed away very unexpectedly and we are all of

Chelsey Donn:

And.

Chelsey Donn:

I just wanna say, uh, send a little prayer out for Dr.

Chelsey Donn:

J Goldberg and hopes that he is in a better place and just sends an extra gratitude to Dr.

Chelsey Donn:

J Goldberg for getting me through some personal health issues that I've gone

Chelsey Donn:

And I think that's a real legacy to leave behind.

Chelsey Donn:

So I wanted to induct Dr.

Chelsey Donn:

J Goldberg tonight for my Royal Highness.

Trey Gerrald:

Very nice.

Trey Gerrald:

Yes.

Trey Gerrald:

Wow.

Trey Gerrald:

I mean, that is a, I it's like making a Royal Highness out of your

Chelsey Donn:

Yeah.

Chelsey Donn:

yeah,

Trey Gerrald:

you know, we are all very fortunate to be here right now and honoring

Chelsey Donn:

yes.

Chelsey Donn:

So woo.

Chelsey Donn:

Sorry for the heaviness, but the cycle,

Trey Gerrald:

I love that.

Trey Gerrald:

That's a great, that's a great contribution to Royal Highness.

Trey Gerrald:

I think it's all about honoring, you know,

Chelsey Donn:

All right.

Chelsey Donn:

Well, I think we learned a lot today.

Trey Gerrald:

but yeah,

Chelsey Donn:

I think neither of us are big water park people.

Chelsey Donn:

I

Trey Gerrald:

don't wanna be in a bathing suit and I don't

Trey Gerrald:

wanna put

Chelsey Donn:

realize that.

Yeah.
