Briiing Briiing

A strange call came into the station today. I answered the phone, "Hello, KVAK."

"Yeah, Ah got a question for y'all," said the brassy-voiced woman on the other end.

"All right," I answered cautiously.

"You know when y'all are readin' the weather, and you say it's like, in the fifties? If you wrote that out, would it be with an I-E-S or a Y-S?"

I blinked, then said, "If we wrote it out, it would be I-E-S."

"And," she continued, "with 'forties,' is that with F-O-R or F-O-U-R?"

"F-O-R," I replied.

"Okay. And it would also have I-E-S?"

"Yes," I said.

"Thanks. Y'all've been very helpful," she said gravely. And hung up.
