Back by popular demand...
Just finished another marathon weekend of recording English tapes and tests at Jiangsu Radio Station. It's a great way to make some money, and every new experience teaches me something new about myself...for example, I now know that I'm incapable of saying the word "balls" into a microphone without laughing, no matter how innocent the context.
So here it is: The Top Five Most Bizarre Things I Had to Say Into a Microphone Today While Keeping a Straight Face:
A: What’s Itchy Feet doing?
B: He is lying on the grass looking up at the blue sky.
A: What’s the matter with you?
B: My pants are old.
A: Hobo is standing on a chair and Eddie is lying under the chair.
B: That Hobo is too dirty!
A: What’s nineteen minus seven, Little Monkey?
B: Twelve, Lovely Panda.
A: Why is Eddie wearing a helmet?
B: Because he is now on Mars.
A: Is life better on Mars?
B: Yes. We are cared for by robots.
A: What do the houses look like on Mars?
B: They look like huge balls.
