Kelly & Michael: Mel B Bedtime
Mel B joined Michael Strahan as guest co-host for the hour. She said she did not get much sleep because her husband is not traveling with her, but her children are. She stayed up late watching TV and fell asleep around 2:30 a.m.
Michael said that he needs at least eight hours of sleep, so he could not imagine such a short night. Between raising kids and touring, Mel B said she is used to sleep deprivation. Last year, she was juggling multiple jobs in different cities and countries.
Strahan said that being a stay-at-home parent is the hardest job in the world, and he admitted sometimes he is glad to get out of the house and go to work. Mel B admitted that she gets a nap in occasionally, like yesterday when she rested with her two-year-old.
Kelly and Michael: How Long Should You Nap?
Did you know that you can customize your nap to get the best results? A 10- to 20-minute power nap is ideal to give you a boost of alertness and energy. But a 30-minute nap can cause a sleep inertia hangover.
A one-hour nap is best for improving memory, such as retention of facts, faces, and names. If you push it to 90-minutes, you will improve your emotional and procedural memory. Michael said he considers his options when he has the chance to take a nap.
Mel B and Michael agreed that naps and snacks are the two best ways to keep the man in your life happy.
Kelly & Michael: Wedding Donkey Waiter
The Knot shared the latest wedding trend, which is to have a donkey in attendance at the ceremony. This trained donkey will walk around at your reception with saddlebags full of beer, which is supposed to make for a great icebreaker at the ceremony.
Michael said he does not think animals belong at weddings, because they could make a mess or upstage you. Strahan does not sound like he will be inviting a donkey to his ceremony with fiancee Nicole Murphy.
Kelly and Michael: Corn Dog Accident
Michael Strahan had to teach Mel B what a corn dog is. She thought it sounded revolting, but she suspected that her children probably eat them. A truck accident in Louisiana spread 40,000 corn dogs on the highway. Apparently there was a lot of corn dog-related looting in the aftermath; Mel wondered whether the 10-second rule applied.
