Simon: Now Jillian is pretty smart, right?
Peter: She is pretty smart.
Simon: How literate do you think she is?
Peter: Oh, very.
Simon: Do you know she could learn 50 words in under one sentence and none of those words will have the letter A in them?
Peter: Oh, all right.
Simon: That's a very commonly used letter. I don't know if you could even name 50 words with an A in them with it gone, vanished.
Peter: Or 50 words in general.
Simon: Table, you know. They have to be all real words, no letter A in them.
Peter: Wow. That's pretty tough.
Simon: I can teach Jillian how to do that with one sentence whispered in her ear.
Simon: And don't worry. It won't be a rude or naughty sentence. All words you'll know. No letter A in any of the 50 words. In fact if you want to up the bet, my friend?
Peter: Oh, I knew it was coming. All right.
Simon: Let's make it 99 words.
Peter: 99 words.
Simon: Ninety-nine words without the letter A in. One sentence whispered in Jillian's ear and then you owe me 20 bucks.
Jillian: All right, let's hear it.
Simon: Are you ready?
Peter: I'm ready.
Simon: You're going to take the bet?
Peter: I'll take it.
Simon: 20 bucks. It should be out on the table as you know, but I trust you.
Simon: Because you've always ponied up before. [Whispers one to ninety-nine]. Jillian is now about to do 99 words...
Peter: All right.
Simon: ... without the letter A in. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome along to tonight's game show where Jillian has taken on the challenge of doing 99 words without the letter A in them. This will be sensational and thankfully the TV show isn't ponying up the money. Peter is ponying up 20 bucks...
Peter: All right, let's hear it.
Simon: ... for Jillian to achieve this. Jillian, take it away. Dun, dun, dun, dun, dun, dun.
Jillian: One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen, twenty, twenty-one, twenty-two, twenty-three, twenty-four, twenty-five, twenty-six...
Peter: Ah, all the way to ninety-nine.
Simon: I think he's got the point. No letter A in any of those words, my friends. Have fun with words.
