Overheard

We all hear them, those random chunks
of conversation that it's impossible not to catch as people live their
lives loud and unaware.
These are some conversation snippets that caught my ear:

"it's about your supervisor knowing what kind of underwear you're wearing that day" – three woman walking into the subway.

"Instead of hiring younger writeres, I think they should just keep the writers they have and use Photoshop to make them look younger in their photos." – a private, but not discrete, conversation in a coffeeshop.

"That coffee's not going to make you dot calm." – admonition as I waved the waitress over for my 5th refill.

"Hurry up. Hurry UP.  I'm waiting impatiently. When the lights
go off the TV comes one. Hurry up. Hurry UP. hurry up. HURRY up."
– an impatient young man, of no more than three, waiting to get into the movie theatre as the staff cleans very slowly.

"… a blueberry is a blueberry, and a cow is a cow" – during an organic ice cream tasting at St. Lawrence Market.  (More on this soon.)

"We couldn't have make up sex, so we had soup instead" – overheard in the Soup Nutsy lineup.

Have you overheard anything amusing lately?

What do you think?
