“We all have our own time machines. Sometimes we travel on laughter, sometimes on sorrow... Sometimes in the most unexpected of vehicles. A leaf blows down an alley, the wind ripples a lake, a faraway smell that you can't identify but can almost taste. Some unexpected thing taps you on your shoulder and you're gone--whisked away from the clang of time present.”—Stuart McLean, The Vinyl Cafe
This is a phone conversation with CBC Radio’s Stuart Mclean, edited down to just Stuart’s fake stutters.
I don’t know if there’s a point to this. It’s not good to say “uh…” on the radio, so sometimes y- y- you gotta s- stutter. Plus it- it… well, it makes your… speech sound more sentimental and… and heartfelt.
