Unscramble the Blue Letters

I was working so hard to prove that blondes have a lot of bnairs. But ironically, one of the first stories I covered was the Anita Hill heriangs in Washington, DC. And sohlrty thereafter, I, too, was sexually harassed in the workplace. I was covering a story in rural Virginia, and when we got back into the car, my cameraman started saying to me, wondering how much I had enjoyed when he toehcud my breasts when he put the microphone on me. And it went downhill from there. I was brncaig myself against the passenger door — this was before cellphones. I was pirfieetd. I actually envisioned myself rolling outside of that door as the car was going 50 mlies per hour like I'd seen in the movies, and wondering how much it would hurt.

Original Text

I was working so hard to prove that blondes have a lot of brains. But ironically, one of the first stories I covered was the Anita Hill hearings in Washington, DC. And shortly thereafter, I, too, was sexually harassed in the workplace. I was covering a story in rural Virginia, and when we got back into the car, my cameraman started saying to me, wondering how much I had enjoyed when he touched my breasts when he put the microphone on me. And it went downhill from there. I was bracing myself against the passenger door — this was before cellphones. I was petrified. I actually envisioned myself rolling outside of that door as the car was going 50 miles per hour like I'd seen in the movies, and wondering how much it would hurt.
