George & Wendy Show
Apocryphal -- maybe -- tale of face-licking as a form of gratitude yields an obsession: "I think I might have a mild complex regarding stranger licking now."
Wendy and George take the "ice bucket challenge" for ALS, sending out their own challenges to Overdrive's own Todd Dills, Class 8 stunt racer Mike Ryan and Mike Rowe.
Wendy on her personal trucking journey: "This is a rule that's been hammered into my head since I started out on this weird little journey, three years ago."
"I have wanderlust, but it's short-term, a lot like my memory. But home time was great, really. Can we go now?"
Wendy walks out into the truck stop parking lot to find a French teen model shoot ongoing around she and George's truck: "Sometimes, it's hard to have the prettiest truck in the lot."
"Walking down the Extraterrestrial Highway at two in the morning, I realized, once again, that sometimes trucking is the best job ever. What other profession can you get paid to see things like an unobstructed view of the Milky Way?"
In which Wendy gets a headset: "It didn't pinch my brain at all, and completed my imaginary Boba Fett outfit perfectly. 'Uh, babe, I think they want you to actually make calls with it.'"
"A large cross section of the people watching mainstream news will also make the decision to turn a portion of their life savings over to a stray cat with an eye infection because of a Sarah McLachlan song."
