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.

"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.

Almost Breakfast


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

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

"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.)
