The following is a transcript of an email exchange I had a few years ago with Savannah, an Orlando radio personality. I wasn't sure what her response would be, and was pleasantly surprised when she took it and ran with it.
Just to make it perfectly clear: The first email, the one that describes the development of the Furby, is a work of fiction. Savannah's reactions to it, however, are real.
