This one was easy.

Comment: Great, great shows and thanks.  I rarely miss any!

However, and please take this as constructive criticism, I encourage all your guests (male and female) to curtail their use of the simile 0;like” UNLESS it is necessary.

e.g.  The rose was red ‘like’ an apple.

The incessant peppering of the simile “like” simply to pad or pause in one’s thoughts is distracting and annoying beyond measure.

Also, “need” is used far too often in Hollywool crap and has seeped into the common parlance as well.

Definition of the word “need” according to Merriam-Webster and others is the following

: a situation in which someone or something must do or have something

: something that a person must have : something that is needed in order to live or succeed or be happy

: a strong feeling that you must have or do something

e.g. I need 2 eggs to make an omelette

It’s now become the norm to employ the word “need” in ridiculous, nonsensical ways as in “You need to go to the store” etc.

The English language provides plenty of modal verbs such as “should,” “could,” “may”, “ought to”, “shall” and so on that correctly fit the bill.

Thanks and keep up the fine work!

Cordially,
b
