Car Con Carne

Apr 23, 2018

For this year's "Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day" (April 26), I'm joined by my 11-year-old daughter, Fiona, for a trip to Grecian Kitchen (3938 Dempster Street in Skokie). My 16-year-old son, Noah, opted out of this year's podcast, which left Fiona "disappointed." Discussed on this week's show, sponsored by BOOST MOBILE:

  • Noah's opting out of participating
  • The benefits of being a middle schooler
  • 6th grade volleyball vs. 6th grade basketball
  • An upcoming school  trip to the White Pines dude ranch
  • Our Bernese Mountain Dog, Shazam
  • A recent trip to Trader Joe's, and how Fiona's prediction came true
  • How would Fiona describe me, honest and unfiltered? 
  • Apparently, "dad jokes" aren't as funny to non-dads
  • What kind of music does Fiona listen to? The answers made me feel super old and out of touch
  • Fiona's rocking the saxophone
  • Fiona's current relationship with older brother Noah ("Do you need to hug more?")
  • What's Fiona's earliest memory?
  • Fiona plugs Shazam's Instagram account, which includes many pictures she's taken of the family dog
  • The joy of Froyo
  • What Noah and Chris Kattan from SNL have in common
