From my hilarious friend and colleague — writer/actor/mother, Miss Becky Thyre:
“We were listening to NPR in the car today and Meshell Norris said, “Will we ever know the name of the SEAL who shot Osama Bin Laden?” My 9-year-old yelled, “Wait, what? A seal shot Osama Bin Laden?”
HA! That reminds me of my own perpetually befuddled youth, where I was the kid who TRULY in her heart believed that Foster Farms was a HOME FOR ORPHANED AND UNWANTED CHICKENS. I also very clearly remember saying to my mother as we drove around Fresno listening to the news on KYNO am radio in our green Pontiac station wagon in the sweltering summer of 1972: “Wait, what? Arabian GORILLAS kidnapped some athletes in the Olympic Village?!”
Yeah. I was that kid.
