Tipsy in Texas - Episode 10 Recap
Episode 10: Tipsy in Texas
Married & running a pet sitting business together, Jessica & Chris Milam of Fur Services Fur Pets in Dallas, Texas bomb Isabel's movie-themed trivia game even though they like to call themselves movie buffs. Thank goodness it's not a drinking game cuz they would have run out of drinks 9 minutes into the interview.
In preparation for the upcoming Valentine's Day holiday, Isabel asks these co-working love birds to open up about their life, love, pets, and business. These proud Southerners don't hold back as they laugh and (one of them) over-indulges in his rum and OJ.
With smiles and laughs all around, their challenges highlight how hard it is to run a pet sitting business, how demanding their work can be, and how they share the responsibility in an industry that runs 24/7.
Drinking game word: MOVIE
