We have a hard time connecting with people because we are terrible listeners. Everyone feels like their opinions are the most important. So if you want to connect with people, listen to them and treat them like they're a star when they're talking to you. Or, if that doesn't work, just gossip about someone you both can't stand.

Valerie has a hard time believing people gossip about her, and is a rageful meditator. Regina ate a Big Boy in Detroit and prefers connecting with friends over ice cream.

Also, did you know Valerie had a birthday? She talked about it for a month and finally it happened and hopefully she won't bring it up in any future episodes. Until next year.
