Larry

Mr. Keller, we are going to go back to high school and Latin class for me three years of Latin Some say it's a dead language I say poopoo on you. Thomas Aquinas gives us this quick quid receptor and badoom receptor tennis receptor tour. I feel like I was in a Harry Potter film right there. all that to say, whatever is received is received according to the manner of the receiver. So St. Thomas queen is I read this story about the meaning of this, what what's going on here. And it was his teacher telling a story of how he was playing a game and one of his students sneezed in his face. And it was funny, but of a grown man sneezes in your face at a business meeting, you get offended by that. It's all in the reception of how you receive something. That's actually what matters communication.


Andrew Keller

I mean, you don't have to get offended. You don't have to you it's like you said your premarital counseling. It's up to you how you react to it. I want to give you one suggestion though. Next time, you say Latin is a dead language. And you say poopoo that you should respond in Latin, hoopoe to that? I don't know how to say that in Latin. Did you choose to take Latin? Or was that the only foreign language option? No, no,


Larry

I could have took in French, German, Spanish probably would have been better for my school. That's 50% Hispanic, but I went with the waning wiki.


Andrew Keller

That's what my brother did. My brother did. The Latin. When you said takes you back to high school I thought about I did a there's a white elephant or a secret saying I don't remember what it was in high school. And there was a guy that I picked his last name was wood. And I got him a two by four. And I wrote his name on it with the last name wood. And he was angry. For years. I saw him a couple years later, he was like, why'd you give me such a terrible present? I was like, it's secret. Sad. It's funny. It's your last name. So I mean, yeah, I guess it's up to you on how you're going to respond to stuff, like you said, with the getting sneezed in the face.


Larry

Nothing in communication is done in a vacuum. There's how I sent the message. And all that goes on with that, and then how you received it. And all that goes on with that our mode of reception is influenced by our mood, education, experience, disposition, maturity, all sorts of things go into how you receive a message from someone. Yeah,


Andrew Keller

I mean, we have another show called sports best. And last week, we were talking about how there was a story of a kid that was born with no hands and no legs. And it's like, how do you receive that? And how do you overcome adversity and sometimes being given being dealt a hand that's really uncomfortable, or really terrible? People can make the best best of it. And I think if it happened to me, I might not but it kind of, it's up to you how you receive it in the moment because things aren't going to change. It's just kind of like, play the cards you doubt.


Larry

This is also why texting, I feel like it's a really bad form of communication. Because there's so much that goes into communication. When you talk to someone you can see their body movements, their eyes, then you get a text and you have you almost don't have any idea what the person's talking about, or what frame they sent it through.


Andrew Keller

Right? Like when I text with you, I never know what's gonna happen. It's like texting an early AI robot. I don't know what to get back via texting is like a weird way. Like, I think it's strange that using a period and a text is like angry. Yeah, commonly, I mean, that's not always the case. People that are maybe over 60 might use a period and it doesn't mean anything. What do you think about the other side of this? So like, if you if I cursed you out, and I said all the most terrible things about you and your family? Like, it's up to you to receive it, but like, there is something on the person giving it that like is implying how they want you to receive it.


Larry

know for sure. And I was thinking recently we did a repost it on like, the journey of somebody, you don't know what chapter you're coming in on. So like, I'm on my journey on I'm on a chapter a year on your journey and a chapter. And we're not necessarily on the same chapter. So if you cussed me out, I have to take a moment to realize, Oh, he's in a different chapter than me. And maybe not get offended by that. Yeah, I


Andrew Keller

think so. I mean, and then also just be kind to people, I guess is I always like to default back to it's on YouTube. It's on you. Like if someone's being mean to you that's on you. Like, I didn't take this advice when I was in high school or junior high, but I'd come home be like, well, this teacher hates me or this coach hates me. It's like well, they probably Don't like the world isn't about you. But like, even if they do hate you give them every reason not to don't wallow in sorrow and say, nothing's ever going to work out because of this one thing I can't overcome, do something different.


Larry

Well, the very first things that me and my wife did when we got married is we took a lake counseling class, so we belong. It's a lake counseling. So like if you it was a big church, right? And if you are going through a hard time, like say, your spouse daughter's cancer, whatever, instead of having to pay 1000s of dollars to go to a counselor, they give you the cheap person, someone in the church, but do you think these classes, like kind of be someone who can be qualified to deal with someone whose spouse is dying or whatever. And like, I, I don't remember, I don't remember a lot from anything. But the one thing I remember them saying is you can never give advice, like, someone has to want to do something, you can't tell them what to do. And I feel like that has a lot to do with today's quote, like, whatever's going on with a person is going on with them, and you can't make them do anything.


Andrew Keller

How does that work is being a parent, like I'm sure in your mind, you're like, Oh, I'm gonna have a daughter, I'm gonna have a son, and you probably had something in your mind of how they were going to be. And they're probably not what you thought, like, how do you balance trying to shape them or point them in the right direction with they are who they are. And they're drawn to what they're drawn to.


Larry

I feel like my whole approach to parenting is basically bumper pole, like you go to a bowling alley, and then they flip up the things in the lane. So you can put the ball in the gutter, like that my kids are just bouncing off the edges. And I'm always just trying to keep them down the bowling alley. That's it.


Andrew Keller

So like Uncle Buck, where the ball stops right in front of the front pin.


Larry

Here's my one question about this quote. It's kind of like a, I don't we're not gonna be able to answer it. But sign language. Like I wonder if there are nuances in sign language.


Unknown Speaker

Oh, for sure.


Larry

Really?


Andrew Keller

Yeah, I've I've heard that like if you're if you're in if you consistently are speaking in ASL, like you're, you're someone that is deaf gives you a name assigned for your name, like you don't spell out la r y. Like you give something that's a kind of sound similar to the Native American being like given a name to represent who you are. I'm not sure exactly how it is. Again, I'm not in that community. But like,


Larry

but are there like flippant ways to do the signals where you're kind of adding like, you know, a tone to to the sign? I


Andrew Keller

think so your body language they can see your face? Like if you have a furrowed brow? You're probably not if you said that was really nice of you with a very, yeah, Holy Face. Hmm. One last thing, if this makes me think of is a term that I learned in construction, which I'm sure people say in every industry. It is what it is, like, you go so much. And then we ordered windows and right to my right, I have plywood because the person ordered the wrong windows and I'm going to get a window in two months. And it is what it is. I received it the manner it was given.


Larry

Dude, I kind of remember the era where that phrase started happening. It is what it is. I was like, wait a bit. What is that?


Andrew Keller

I think people don't use it that much anymore, because it's kind of a cop out but


Larry

basketball players use it a lot.
