My friend Sue was listening to Good Morning America the other day while she was doing things around the house. She was alone in the house and the show was keeping her (and the cats) company as she cleaned up and got her day started, so she was only half listening to what the talking heads were saying.
All of a sudden a phrase caught her ear.
She stopped what she was doing and turned to really pay attention to the show for a minute or two.
“It turns out they weren’t talking about summer toilets. They were talking about the summer toy list. I’m not sure if I’m disappointed or not…”
It reminded me of the game of telephone where the first person whispers “Anything you can do, I can do better” and the last person says (out loud) “Cow patties eat frost-bitten whales in August.”
