Eyjafjallajökull and the Yosemite Conspiracy
Kate: Oh they would say that!
Kate: The MEDIA! "Oh the attention's not on us! Hey! We're still here! Pay attention to AMERICA!"
Cary and I exchange glances...
Kate: I don't trust the media.
Cary: But it's seismology.
Kate: Well still.
Me: I'm not sure that this is the appropriate reaction, Kate.
Kate: I just think we exaggerate.
Kate then proceeded to rave about the virtues of Iceland. Cary was not as enthused and proposed making Iceland a national park. I reminded him that we cannot make other nations into national parks. And then Kate chimed in:
"Anyway, since when is Iceland a part of Europe??"
I'm still laughing.
By the way, Cary was misinformed. No eruption anytime soon.
