Caught an old episode of Frasier the other day and had a chuckle over a scene where a woman calls into his radio program for advice. She was at the end of her rope having to raise 4 kids under 7 by herself. Her struggles were typical. Meanwhile Frasier is trying to get rid of some puppies so when the stressed out mom asks what she should do Frasier responds with “have you thought of getting a puppy”. Of course the humor is that is the LAST thing she needs but was a typical Frasier response who really isn’t the best of psychologists. It also reminded me of the type of response a godly woman might give. And like Frasier who always starts off his call by saying “I’m Listening”, he isn’t listening. Again, like godly women. They listen to what they want to hear, what tickles their ears.
In searching for that clip to insert here I came across something even more apropos. The theme song of Frasier is weird and doesn’t make much sense, but when you read about what the lyrics mean….ah ha!
Bold is the lyrics following with what they mean in relation to the show and in brackets my application to godly women.
“Hey baby I hear the blues a-callin”-refers to patients with troubles calling into the radio show [or those writing in to godly mentors for advice]
“Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs”
“But maybe I seem a bit confused”-Frasier’s personality was a bit???? [Lori’s online personality is a bit???]
“Maybe, but I got you pegged”-Frasier does understand these people and helps them. [Kinda]
“But I don’t know what to do with those Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs”-it’s a tough business….gotta deal with these “crazies” every day. [Yup, tough business having to deal with those “mentally ill” people every day who aren’t perfect like us godly women.]
“They’re calling again”-oh, oh….should be self explanatory. [Yup, those crazy people who just never stop commenting.]
