You look busy. What are you working on?
A story about assassination risk.
What’s that?
Pretty much what it sounds like. The risk someone important’s gonna be killed. You know, politicians, human rights advocates, royalty …
You sure you’re pronouncing it right?
What are you talking about?
I grew up saying “assessinate.”
Saying whaaaat?
Oh come on. You remember: “2, 4, 6, 8, who do we assessinate?”
I remember “appreciate,” not “assessinate.” Ain’t no such word.
So what. There oughta be.
You mean like coolth?
That’s not a word.
Well that should be one, too.
Sniglets R us?
You bet.
