Fitz in the Morning Episode #263 Weds 05/13/20

If April showers bring May flowers what do May showers bring? Fitz and Claire may run away together to write for Hallmark. In the What Are You Kidding Me stories, guys are filmed getting waxed with harmonicas in their mouths, the Bass Pro Challenge has people diving into display rivers, a man in a high-speed chase flipped over but kept going, and the TikTok New Mother Challenge has moms popping out. Dew is officially a Snohomie and Fitz gives him a nostalgic King County send-off. In the Hourly Bulletin, COVID Phase 2 restaurant rules, Angel of the Winds Casino reopens, free COVID-19 testing at T-Mobile Park, grocery chains limiting meat purchases to avoid a shortage, and NASCAR restarts Sunday. Claire’s story of a white van suspiciously circling triggers Fitz’s white van fears, but it was just a mom teaching a kid to drive. In The Fitz Files, Blake and Gwen buy a $13 million home in Encino, HBO Max reboots “Head of the Class”, and Jimmy Fallon plays “Under Pressure” with Brendan Urie and the Roots from their homes on kitchen utensils. In The Good Stuff, a couple both on ventilators in different hospitals finally reunite after beating COVID-19 and a man hospitalized for 64 days with a 1% chance to survive beats it and is applauded by the hospital staff while leaving. Don’t eat while listening to “All Jacked Up” which includes Melissa smelling pants in her store, Fitz letting his wife shave his neck while he sleeps and Ryder dipping TP in toilet water to simulate wet wipes. Today’s Troop Salute is Joe McCloskey of the US Navy. Experts say COVID-19 could be the catalyst for changing school forever and Fitz leads a discussion on kids, school, and attention span. We all try to talk on the air with our masks on, now that our company requires them in common areas. Matthew McConaughey says masks are cool and patriotic.
