A nailbiting moment


One of those moments you get in radio. I'm on the air, playing a standard Spot The Intro competition, and put a lady on the line.

She told me on air she was a nurse. All good so far. Then she added that she was on holiday next week, but would still be working part-time in her other job as a Marie Curie nurse.

"Oh that's interesting," I said, kind of. "Do you do pedicures too?"

Face omelette. I thought she'd said she was a manicurist.

Still, she wasn't offended. And she won the cinema tickets. And it made Fat Mancunian laugh when he popped into the studio five minutes later, so all good, really...
