I sat bolt upright and gasped "Ho-leee SH**!!" Ran out to the living room, turned on the stereo, and listened to the rest of the interview. Gravity. Drought. Unwritten Letter #1. Lullabye. Then I fired up my computer, punched up NPR's web site, and listened to it again.
And then - to quote our favorite phrasemaker Reileen - I spent the next two hours "running excitedly in squares."
