Heard: Spanish Iwo Jima

Overheard this Red Badger female on her cell phone in Dupont Circle ...

"You know that big, huge statue Iwo Jima? [pronouncing it 'Heema'] ... No, I dunno why it's call that -- maybe it's Spanish. Anyway, we're supposed to meet them there on Saturday."


  1. Que bueno -- she knows her U.S. history!

  2. I am the mother of an intern currently serving in D.C.and I have to admit I love this blog. Having recently returned from Europe I can compare Interns described in your blog to the bad American tourists abroad! Of course all interns are not as described just as all American tourists are not ignorant. But those that are certainly do subject themselves to great blogging.
