Intoxicated Interviews With Sam & Joni: Inaugural Edition

Intoxicated Interviews With Sam & Joni

Joni: I think once you accept the Stork into your life you have to take the babies. #TRUTH

What do you get when you combine a 41-year-old cisgender mom of five and a 24-year-old queer writer with questionable judgment AND tequila (or Kahlua WHATEVER)? You get a lot of conversation, a lot of laughs, and a lot of typos (this interview was created via a shared Google doc, which is both convenient AND confusing. Because simultaneous typing).

Welcome to the inaugural edition of Intoxicated Interviews with Sam and Joni. Where we take shots and talk about stuff. And things. And then we don’t edit it. At all.

Now that you know a bit about us, let’s cut to the absurdity. 

SHOT ONE (well, and two):

Joni: Sam, what are we talking about tonight?

(PS I SMELL REAL BAD BECAUSE I DON’T WEAR DEODORANT. BECAUSE ALZHEIMER'S. AND I HAVEN’T TAKEN A SHOWER.)

Sam: I can actually smell you from here. Yikes. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT CHILDREN, JONI.

J: SAM TYPE IN A DIFFERNENT COLOR. Don’t be daft. I didn’t spell different right.

S: Shit I can’t even find the color I picked in the first place.

J: Just pick any fucking color Sam.

S: A CLASSIC BLACK. There we go. (J: no one is going to see any of these colors when this is published)

J: KIDS. And go! I have FIVE. Of them. Kids. They all came out of my body. And I sort of raised my sister. She did not come out of my body but technically she could have because she’s 14 years younger than me.

S: I have no children and I have no plans to have children and I really hope that humans never exit my body ever. EVER.

J: So, what I’m hearing is that you don’t want kids?

S: It’s confusing because I love kids. I fucking love children. But I also don’t feel like I’d make a super duper parent. So my thought is like, I should I don’t know, mentor kids? I should be a mentor. I should like, benefit kids in a capacity that is not parenthood. Because I’d fuck that up FOR SURE.

J: OMG do you want to mentor any of MINE? Because, I don’t know if you heard, I have FUCKING FIVE OF THEM. (BRB BOOZE)

S: The first time you mentioned that you have five kids I was like WHAT THE ACTUAL. FIVE HUMANS. FIVE HUMANS CAME OUT OF YOU. Like, not at the same time, but they came out and like, that sounds painful and scary WHY DID YOU DO THAT??

Also YES, I will mentor the fuck out of your children. That’s how I spread the gay agenda across America.

SHOT TWO (that means 3 for you Sam. GO):

S: An excuse to consume more kahlua? OKAY HERE I GO.

J: OK. Man I lost the cursor. That was scary. Here is why I had five kids: The first one was because I needed to love something that would love me back. The second one was because my diaphragm leaked. The third one was because my birth control pill failed. BIRTH CONTROL LIES. DOUBLE UP BITCHES.

The fourth one was because I got remarried and always wanted a fourth one, which isn’t the REASON I got married but it worked out. And the fifth one was so the fourht one didn’t grow up an only child and become an asshole (I spelled fourth wrong but I’m not changing it because VODKA).

WAIT. This is a valid transgender question. How does the kids thing work for most trans folk? Adopt? Go ahead and do it the uterus way? This is fucking rude but I genuinely don’t know.

S: I’m drunk. Here’s my really articulate answer: Pregnancy in trans folks and baby makin’ shit is a CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE! Some folks freeze their eggs or sperm prior to hormones and that opt for a surrogate later. Some folks have the parts and do it the “old fashioned way.” Some folks adopt. Other trans folks like myself just want to get a dog and call it a day.

J: I have two dogs. DO you want one of mine?

S: I live in an apartment where I’m not allowed to have a dog or a cat and every day my soul dies a little without an animal companion. Life is fucking hard.

J: I’m not trying to minimize your suffering but dogs are a racket man. They get hair EVBERYWHERE. BUT also I have five kids so maybe my tolerance is reduced.

That’s not how you spell everywhere AT ALL. I got a new keyboard. It’s probably that.

S: It’s totally the keyboard.

You know what I need right now? tnachos. NACHOS. Nachos.

J: OMG I JUST had a spicy potato TACO. WHich only

happened bc of you

Sam. WTF ARE YOU DOING WITH MY

SPACING

S: I am entertaining myself.

E ME TACOS OMG TACOS WAIT GIVE ME

J: I can’t help upi with the tacos from the Central Valley. There are a LOT of taco trucks here though. (I can still use italics).

WAIT. Do you want to ask me things about kids? Or having them? Or vagina births?

OR BOOBS AND BREASTFEEDING?

S: WHERE DO BABIES COME FROM

J: Our blessed Heavenly Father.

Or a stork.

One of those.

S: Wait so then what is a “vagina birth” as you called it above? Do you give birth to the stork who then fetches you a human baby?

J: Yes. That’s exact;ly how it happens. But first you have to raise the stork. Which means A) eating grubs and B) vomiting into the storcks mouth. It’s a messy business. I feel like I must be drunker than you because I can’t type any more.

S: I am definitely drunk and I am sweating a lot. I don’t know why I’m swaeating so much. But I am .

J: It’s probably because you are nervius toi talk to me because of my aweomwness.

S: TALKING ABOUT STORKS MAKES MY PAMS . PALMS. SWEAT

J: Maybe it was the mention of regurgitation. (I SPELLED THAT RIGHT)

S: Wait so if you want a stork but you don’t a want baies babies BABIES can you keep the stork and forfeit the babies? #lifehacks

J: I think once you accept the Stork into your life you have to take the babies. #TRUTH

S: So where do they get the storks at the zoo? Does the zoo have storks? omg JOni can we go to the zoo? wait zoos are bad zoos are bad for animals aren’t they? isn’t this a moral grey? I’M GETING EXISTENTIA LJONI

J: POK WAIT. JUST BREATHE.. We can get through this. My oldest daugher took my two litteslt (wtf even is that word) to the zoo yesterday. BUT they have like a whole African safari thing and also a big pool for sea otters or some other furry fucking swimming thing. OH GOD NOW I FEEL BAD>

S: I think I’m crying. I’m actualy crying because all i want right now is a sea otter to hold hands with .Have yo uever seen those videos??? WITH THE OTTERS THAT HOLD HANDS??? THEY NEVER LET GO.

J: NO> SNED ME A LINK I just did a word count and we have written a lot of words

S: THEY NEVER LET GO IT’S LIKE THAT MOVIE WITH THE SHIP THAT SINKS WHERE BASICALY EVERYONE DIES?? THE BIG SHIP that HITS a big thing of ICE . TITANIS TITNA. TITANIC!

J: OMG THEY ARE HOLDOING HANDS FOR 1 minute and 40 seconds.

OMG Now I feel really bad about the zoo.

Also I thought you wanted a fucking TACO not an otter

S: I WANT TO HOLD AN OTTER”s HAND WHILE I eating tacos!!!! #dreams

J: I’m weeping. BRB watching that again.

I’m back. What happened. BRB BOOZA+

SHOT THREE (FOUR):

J: we have to wrap this up soonbecause omg I msell so bad and my phone is in my little kids’ room plahing mozart and I need it. But really I need a shower so bad. I am offending muyself.

J: OK A. I just did the same thingbc I was like WHERE IS SAM. But then you were right there. B. I can attest that I smell as bad as my husband. I am pretty sure he has more testosterone than me. But also I am sort of hariy so maybe not.

S: in a year from nwo i can . i am * gonna be so hairy AHHHHHHHHHHH

J: OMG SPEAKGIN of children. My 15-year-old shaves his armpits but he was like “Hey I’m ok with girls having hair” and I was like IT’S ACTUALLY PART OF BEING A HUMAN OWEN. But then I was like “WAX MY ARMS BC I WANT TO SEE MY FRECKLES”

SO he did.

And now I can see my frecjkles. But I don’t shave my armpits.

J: WAIT. Can you do that? IS THAT A THING? I would do that. But I’m not waxing my asshole. Like what do people expect to find on a asshole?

J: I THINK you need to tell America why stuffed animal = derogaroty fuck I did that wrong

S: well I can’t speak for all stuffed americans but my children have said that it creates a hierarchy and their status as “stuffed animals” has been used to put them in their place ie a shelf and baby cribs

J: what if they are made in China?

S: maybe in the next interview we can talk to my children and they can educate the public about this very important issue
