Howdy folks:

Welcome to the Michael Perry’s Voice Mail, episode 51. This one’s free for subscribers and non-subscribers alike. Click the player above to listen.

Included in today’s installment: How shy people hide in public, and why I wish you wouldn’t do play-by-play on my groceries. It’s Freudian and Scandinavian and some other things. In the Roughneck Reflection Mike discusses hiding in public and why even though he’s happiest alone in his little room above the garage, he’s looking forward to standing in front of a whole bunch of people.

P.S. Boiled dinner can also be a point of cultural commonality.

The excerpt in today’s episode is from Truck: A Love Story, available in hardcover here, paperback here, ebook here, and audiobook here. The general store for everything else from Sneezing Cow can koozies to the original Sneezing Cow T-shirt is here.

We also have two new DVDs available.
