Eleven years ago, I was on the radio, on NPR's Weekend Edition. It was the Sunday Puzzle segment featuring Will Shortz. It was thrilling and a lot of fun, and by tightening up the pauses while I was thinking and editing out at least one question that stumped me, they made me sound cleverer than I am.
P.S. I still remember the answer to the stumper: (Doctor) "Phil" and "ill". It'll make sense when you've listened to the program.
