AJ & McCall 12/20/18

Yesterday was gift giving pet peeves but what about the people that say "Don't get me anything."? What does that really mean? At lunch AJ & McCall were getting their food and someone came in after them and put their jacket on a seat to mark the table, but should they be able to do that? Shouldn't the people that already bought their food have the first rights to the table? It has lead us to the phone, somewhat passive aggressive, game "I'm sorry to break it to you, but..." AJ is gonna be all alone for two weeks and has no clue what to do with himself. Food, chores, responsibilities how does he handle that while his girlfriend is gone? McCall, as a hunter's widow, has some advice for the Debate At 8 but how does your routine change when you're left alone? Millions, yes millions, of gifts have already been returned and there's already a new diet you definitely shouldn't try.

AJ & McCall 12/19/19

Even though the AJ & McCall message has been do you and be nice, there's be so many crazies that it's been hard not to get frustrated. Luckily, McCall has a tip to help us stay calm during the holidays which will be put to the test today. Our front office ladies do amazing, fun things for us ahead of the holidays and deserve a huge shout out, especially because they help us avoid things like a Secret Santa debacle. Could you imagine being a person asking for more gifts from a co-worker and then asking for something well over the limit? Oh, and it gets worse from there! Why is it that such a joyous time that is about the thought and not the things brings out the worst in people? Both AJ & McCall have their share of gift giving headaches for the Debate At 8 and wonder if they're the only ones. Congratulations again to the Aggies on winning their bowl game and today we're going to invent our own.

AJ & McCall: Specific Potatoes Debate @8

Everyone loves potatoes and AJ & McCall are no different, but AJ gets a little specific with his taters. After a shopping trip he revealed he only likes specific potatoes for specific dishes (like Russet for mashed or baked) and McCall says he's weird. It was a resounding victory for the Debate At 8 but who was the victor? And on the subject of potatoes, if you could only have one dish the rest of your life what spud dish would it be?

AJ & McCall 12/18/18

The weather was very nice this morning, no frost or bad roads, but is that the 'perfect' Christmas? Don't we all want snow for our perfect Christmas? Speaking of Christmas, it's a time of joy and fun but McCall has to vent. Maybe they're first world problems but, on the other hand, perhaps McCall found something to add to her Christmas list. AJ & McCall like potatoes and so does the world, but AJ is a bit more particular about his taters. He only wants specific ones for specific dishes and McCall says he's weird, so for the Debate At 8 is AJ crazy for matching specific dishes to specific potatoes? Despite the fact AJ & McCall gave everyone the heads up about the holiday out date the new term 'Scrouging' has been invented, which means to break up with someone so you don't have to give your significant other a gift.

AJ & McCall 12/17/18

AJ & McCall both messed up things they should know, and got injured in the process. When you go out to eat and grab those after dinner mints what flavor is best? AJ cannot stand it when they're cinnamon instead of peppermint but McCall says he's wrong about that. The internet is at it again, this time trying to argue that a hot dog is a taco. AJ & McCall say no to that for the Debate At 8, but then what is a hot dog? Is it a sandwich? Pita? Can you believe it's officially two weeks from the last day of the year?

AJ & McCall: Christmas Not Who They Seem Debate @8

Since the month of December has arrived AJ & McCall have been waiting to do this Debate At 8. Think of three of everyone's favorite Christmas movies; Home Alone, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas and The Nightmare Before Christmas, there are characters in them that aren't who they seem. Kevin McCallister's dad works for the mafia, the Grinch isn't actually a bad guy and Jack Skellington is a villain. Based on AJ & McCall's points, do you agree?
