Talking Dictionary 688. Red Shirt Not Worth A Red Cent


688. Myron said, "Did you hear about Bono? He had a bad cycling accident in Central Park. I hope he's going to be okay." Alex said, "He'll probably develop it into a platinum album for U2. Not long ago, I could've gotten hurt too. And I'm a very careful biker. I never cycle except on bright, sunny days. And I always wear my day‐glow red shirt. It's so bright, it hurts your eyes! So I'm at a red light, wearing my loud shirt, when I hear tires squealing behind me. Next thing I know, I'm flying through the air. Luckily, I only got road rash, but my bike got totaled. Helping me up, the driver apologized. He said he'd been talking to his girlfriend. She asked me if I was okay. That's when I realized why my red shirt hadn't helped me out. She was the prettiest redhead I'd ever seen!" 3.5
