My initial conversation with Joanna left me particularly dumbfounded.  I told her that I was shocked because everyone thought that she was dead.  She replied, “I know.  I was shocked when I found out.”

Joanna is a placid woman of smooth, even speech.  Despite her eventual (and now, seemingly temporary) insanity, she was remarkably unflappable.  Unfortunately, this made her speech patterns ambiguous.  Examine the sentence above.  I said I was shocked because all were convinced she was dead.  She said she was shocked when she found out.

When she found out she was dead or when she found out that we thought she was dead.

Mysterious are the ways of the female.  Most mysterious.
