1. Casualty vs Casually. That time Jewel got schooled by Kurt Loder:
"There’s a line you have," Loder said, “‘There are nightmares on the sidewalks/there are jokes on TV/ there are people selling thoughtlessness with such casualty.’ Casualty doesn’t mean that, does it? Casualty’s like a guy gets his arm blown off. I mean isn’t that…"
"That’s a type of casualty," Jewel said.
"What?" Loder asked.
"It’s a type of casualty that …" she responded.
"No, really. I thought you were trying to say casualness," he said.
"No, casualty," Jewel affirmed.
"Oh, OK," Loder said, "All right. Are you a tech person? Do you take computers on the road, do you log on, e-mail?"
"No, I’m a bit archaic," Jewel confessed, "I mean, I still write everything by hand. It’s quite archaic."
"Wow," Loder replied.
"It is wow," she said, "I’m dyslexic as heck. I mean, I just can’t type well."
"Really?" Loder said, "that’d be a problem for a writer."
"It is a bit of problem," Jewel said, "I mean, putting the book together. Everything was done by hand. I had to recopy it legibly to get it…"
"That explains casualty probably," he said.
"That probably does," Jewel said, "[you’re a] smart-ass for pointing that out. Next topic."
