RUSH: Nancy in Wichita, thank you for calling. It’s nice to have you on the program today.
CALLER: Hi, Rush.
RUSH: Hi, Nancy!
CALLER: You sweet thing.
RUSH: Aw, thank you so much.
CALLER: I got my T-shirt in the mail from the leukemia-lymphoma fundraiser, on Friday, and I love it!
RUSH: Well, I’m glad you got it. I appreciate your donation to it, too. If you’re just tuning in, she obviously had to make a sizeable donation in order to get the freebie T-shirt.
RUSH: Did it fit?
CALLER: I haven’t tried it on yet. I’m moving to a new house on the 1st of July and I’m going to wear it the first night. I’m going to have a glass of wine and think of you.
CALLER: I know.
RUSH: You know, Nancy, I probably shouldn’t say this, but I do — sometimes at night — I wonder how many people’s thoughts include me. I wonder how many. (Laughing.) Sorry.
CALLER: Really you shouldn’t be surprised —
RUSH: No —
CALLER: — because there are many, many people —
RUSH: I do —
CALLER: — that think of you and pray for you.
RUSH: Poor Dawn is shaking her head in there. She can’t believe it.
CALLER: Are you listening to me?
RUSH: Yes, I am.
RUSH: I’m listening to you. I’ve been a husband.
CALLER: You are well loved. You’re loved by many, and many pray for you —
RUSH: Well, thank you so much.
CALLER: — and think of you every day, and I’m one of them.
RUSH: Well, I appreciate it, more than you know.
RUSH: I thank you again for that donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
CALLER: Well, stay well and stick around a long time. We love you.
RUSH: I have no intentions of vanishing or going anywhere. Nancy, by the way, is in my top ten favorite female names list.
CALLER: Well, then I’ll keep it.
RUSH: (Laughing.) You own it. So you should.
CALLER: All right. Thank you, sweetheart.
RUSH: Thank you, Nancy. It’s always a pleasure.
