“I’ve learned something strange: even with the best of intentions, just about every live interview I’ve ever done has come out with at least one sentence in the transcript that’s the exact opposite of what was said. If I said, “the cat is black,” it would be printed as, “the cat is not black.” and that gets really old after so many years, but what I think is more interesting from this, and maybe even a bit alarming and sort of sad, is how often everyone must misunderstand each other all the time in everyday conversation, misheard sentences and opposite interpretations regularly going unnoticed and unchecked. How messy our brains are.”
