Because you know I'm an intelligent person who sometimes or maybe often says dumb things even when she's stone cold sober, I'm going to share this with you.
Also, you should know that I almost never know what's going on in the world. Current events are usually no longer current by the time I hear them.
So as we were walking to work Nick said, "So you know they caught the bomb guy. The one who left the car in Times Square."
"He was on a plane for Dubai. They'd figured out who he was and put him on the no-fly list. They stopped the plane."
"It's alarming that he didn't get caught at the airport in the first place."
"Well, they had just put his name on the list, and it hadn't been updated yet for the day. They recognized his name from the passenger manifest."
"But they should've arrested him before."
"With the bomb. And anyway, how did he get it out of his car?
"What? The police have the car. They didn't know it was his bomb until they figured out who he was."
"But how did he get the bomb through the airport?"
"The bomb he was taking on the plane to Dubai."
"He didn't have a bomb on the plane."
"You said the guy who had the bomb. He was taking it to Dubai."
"No. No. I said the bomb guy. The one who had the bomb in his car. In Times Square. He was heading to Dubai."
"Why didn't you say that? I was wondering why he'd take the bomb to Dubai instead of just making one there."
"Who are you?"
