Not really, but my daughter and partner certainly seem to think so. Yesterday, I was imbibing my daily can of Pepsi Max, not bothering anyone at all when The German walks by and sees me. He keeps walking and says to VanGoghGirl, "You ought to tell your mom what The Tesh said about women and caffeine". She then starts into this spiel about how much caffeine a woman can safely drink before it starts affecting them negatively and how caffeine is so addictive that you shouldn't attempt to quit cold-turkey...blah blah blah.
What is it about this guy that they just love so much? Most girl's VanGoghGirl's age want to listen to hip hop or pop music when they get in the car. After school, my kid wants to listen to John Tesh's "Intelligence for Your Life". I swear, every other day she and my partner have some kind of advice for me courtesy of "The Tesh". I'll admit, I did used to watch him on that show Entertainment Tonight back in the nineties and I found it mildly amusing when he started making sappy new age music a few years ago, but when did this guy become a sage for all the ages?
