this is when you know you're a grammar geek: when you try to proofread the radio.

and i don't mean the print on a physical radio. no, proofreading what you're hearing on the radio.

driving home the other night, i heard the credits for a show on NPR. i've heard it a hundred times before, but for some reason, i caught it this time around: 'this is a co-production of Sponsor A, Company B, and Production Company C.' and i think, 'coproduction is a project for two people. if there are three, it has to be a joint production!'

...of course, in writing this up, the reference geek took over, and i looked up the prefix. the story was a lot funnier before finding that co- does mean jointly. *sheepish*
