Greg and I were listening to NPR on the way to work this morning. The news began with a report from Iraq.
NPR: “Attacks at a roadside check point killed two this morning.”
Sarah: “Is that a C-H-E-C-K point or a C-Z-E-C-H point?”
Greg: “Maybe it’s a check point run by Czechs.”
Sarah: “A Czech check point?”
Later, the report turned to Iran.
NPR: “Israel is planning a tax on Iran.”
Sarah: “Yeah, right. How are they going to enforce that?”
Greg: “No, they’re planning attacks, not a tax.”
Sarah: “Well that’s just a poor choice of wording for a radio program.”
NPR executives, I’m talking to you. I think you need my help. Hire me!
