Only Portland-area readers will fully appreciate this, but.
See, I’m a good citizen. I support my public radio station.
And, um, I just found out that as a result of my contribution during the recent pledge drive, I have won a James Opie Oriental Rug.
Now, anyone who’s ever listened to KOPB during a pledge drive knows that they mention these rugs approximately once every five minutes. “Call now, and you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a James Opie Oriental Rug.” And you think, oh, yeah, sure.
Well, they’re not lying. So now I get to go and pick out a rug.
On which the cat will no doubt promptly vomit.
