999 - Being Vague and Unfocused

May 16th, 2014

Episode 83 of 489 episodes

This is an episode with people in it who talk to each other about stuff. If that’s not clear enough for you, well, then, just listen to it. Slow Dialog: 1:18 Explanation: 3:18 Fast Dialog: 16:31 Thierry: I’m pumped and ready to help paint the community center this weekend. What time are we supposed to get there in the morning? Bonnie: I’m not sure. Sophia was a little vague about that. She told people to show up when they can make it. Thierry: That doesn’t sound like an auspicious start. How many people are supposed to be there? Bonnie: I’m a little fuzzy on that, too. Sophia didn’t have a sign-up sheet. She just told people to show up if they could. Thierry: I hate to say it, but Sophia is the worst person to be organizing this. Her heart is in the right place, but her head is in the clouds. I don’t think I’ve ever met a more absentminded person. Bonnie: I know what you mean. She always seems to be daydreaming. Thierry: I’m going to call her right now and pin her down. She needs to attend to the nitty-gritty if this is project is going to get done. Bonnie: What if she’s as vague as she usually is? Thierry: I’ll try speaking to her on a different frequency: Earth to Sophia, Earth to Sophia... Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
