oblivious

My friend Rob was writing a little article blurb about Christians who live in closed countries. Obviously trying to be funny, he writes something like, "my friend Joe lives in a country that rhymes with 'Fina'."

Sadly, it took a remarkably long time for me to figure out what country that might be. Syria.......Sweden.........Iraq (thinking maybe it was a play on the letters)......Nigeria......the list went on. Suddenly, I sat up straighter at my desk and yelled (with tremendous glee) "OH, China!"

Well here lies the problem. Fina is pronouced Feenuh. That was the name of a gas station in Orlando years ago. I can understand why you didn't get it right away, you're not such a ditz after all;-). It sounded like an absolute Karin moment, though. Maybe Rob should put it rhymes with wine-uh or something like that.

I agree with Amanda. I was thinking fina like the water aquafina. Let's take some phoenetics classes, people!

Perhaps I should have said "Firack" or "Faudi Afabia" or "Foklahoma"?
