Another shining moment on Talk of the Nation

Host: Jeannie, welcome.
Caller: Thank you.
[Awkward pause.]
Guest: Jeannie, welcome to the program.
Caller: Thank you very much.
[Awkward pause.]
Host (slightly annoyed): Jeannie, you're on the air. Go ahead.

People! Here are some Talk of the Nation rules of thumb that you need to memorize before you call in!

1. Don't ask the host how he is doing. He already answered that question 20 times.
2. Dive right into your comment! Don't wait for a prompt from the host.
3. When you hear the music, WRAP IT UP!

And there you have it. Now get on that phone, call up Neal Conan, and make me proud!

You are so good and finding the funny in the mundane!
