Overheard...

I was at the gym today.  Two high school girls were sitting on the mats and "working out their abs," which basically meant that they were chatting, texting, and doing half-assed crunches when they felt like it.  We will call them Stephanie and Ashley.

Stephanie: "So like, are hot dogs bad for you?"
Ashley: "Ohmygod, I asked my mom that the other day!"
Stephanie: "Are they?  I had two for lunch.  I never eat them with the bun though."
Ashley: "Yeah, I think they're OK.  You know, without the bun."
Stephanie: 'Yeah, OK, good!"

Pretty much speaks for itself.  :o

Overheard anything crazy like that lately?  I love hearing people's conversations.

NSFVW (quite vulgar), but it involved Abe Lincoln, the killer (Buffalo Bill) from Silence of the Lambs, the Kama Sutra, and a wooden penis. 

This is what people talk about in bars in western maryland.

Ok, this wasn't overheard but is so awesome I have to share: The other night a friend of mine drank a lot of cask wine then met up with me for coffee. He wasn't feeling well so he had to leave...about 5 minutes later I got this text message:

"Yuck! I just had a vom on some hookers they were none too amused! So am now in taxi fleeing from said hookers"

This was over a week ago and it still gives me the giggles...

I just now ran into this post on Yahoo! Answers UK, in the Vegetarian and Vegan section. Seriously.

"Is it safe to eat unpasteurized chicken eggs?
I'm thinking of purchasing a few hens, but I'm concerned about the possible risk of infection due to the fact that the eggs won't be pasteurized like store bought eggs are, what do you think?

Extended details: Oh, I guess I meant homogenized, my bad."

The mind boggles!!

Some youngish girls in the park told me my dog was hot.
I felt so uncomfortable because they were for the most part checking me out and whispering, one nudged the other and thats what was blurted out and they laughed.

That must have been a little disappointing. Not even you, your dog. Ouch :(

i work in a call center so i hear some ridiculous stuff, it's rare that stuff comes up that i overhear that actually makes me laugh out loud. i overhear a lot when i'm on my break trying to read. the other day i heard a girl talking to a customer (she'd already been talkin to him for over a half hour) and it went kinda like

"try taking the battery out of the phone...... what? you cracked your screen? how did you.... no, it shouldn't have cracked.... if it cracked you put WAY too much pressure on the phone--i can't fix it for you sir, you'd have to take it to the store but they can't fix it either if you just cracked it..... to be honest, sir, we've gotten so far off of the original reason you called in, but i think it'd be best if you just went to the store because it's obvious i won't be able to help you over the phone today... they'll probably replace it......... no it'll be $50.... because you just physically damaged it!"

the notations in some peoples accounts are the funniest though. my coworker that sits next to me told me once "okay it's about to get real interesting in a minute" and i leaned over to see what he was talking about and the notes were like:

customer called in, seems to be very intoxicated, requesting we tell him the nearest store to his current location that sells a certain brand of beer, apologized, advised of 411 for grocery stores in his area, customer became upset started crying said will sue because of our poor customer service, customer requested a supervisor call him back

Back in the 70s my English teacher gave me a bunch of books of modern poetry called "Voices." In one was a poem called "Paranoia" that I have searched for unsucessfully. It went like this, in part:

When you defrost the refrigerator, the TV drips.
The cop who renewed your driver's licence was sleepy. He's been up all night, screening your dreams.
Someone's been reading your mail...and the worst of it is, their hands are coming out of your shirtsleeves.
You take the dog for a walk. A beautiful girl comes up to you and asks you for the dog's phone number.

wooo I finally overheard something comment worthy:

While I was being dish-bitch in the kitchen at this dinner party on Saturday night, the guest of honour was talking about how she had hoped the trip would broaden her childrens' minds, but after they had visited a number of farms, the children, instead of becoming interested in the farming lifestyle, were becoming bigger and bigger animal lovers, and one of her daughters 'even' asked if she could become a vegetarian. Quote: now how am I supposed to deal with that? I told her, she can do that when she's 18 and she's out of my house.  For goodness sake, she's a growing girl!

aha.

because we're obviously all stunted, underdeveloped throwbacks.  You couldn't possibly grow up without meat!  oh  no!

Seriously, it was the biggest struggle to keep a straight face with what I was doing and not either laugh hysterically or get really really mad.

College kids discussing the courses they're taking on the bus, one griping about having to do Latin. Her friend says, "Well at least it's a dead language, I guess that means you're safe."

Walking home today, there were some people on their front deck talking.  I only heard a snippet:

Woman:  She's vegan.
Man:  If she gets hungry, tell her I have some meat for her. harharhar

A bit later and maybe not related:

Woman:  She's brainwashed.

Honestly, I'm surprised that anyone in my area knows what vegan means.

lol, i totally understand.  When i met my husband he was addicted to pizza smothered in garlic butter, french fires, and dr. pepper.  Eventually his metabolism caught up with him as he got more toward his mid 20's Then he was like...HELP

I bet he'd do better at sports ( i think you said he plays a sport right?)  If he bumped down to 2%....whole milk HAS to make you feel heavy....especially after 2-3 glasses.....If he's resistant, try getting him to mix them 1/2 and 1/2 first, and kinda wean his way down to 2%.  And bagel are great! especially for an athlete!!

1 % would be even better for him.  1 cup of 1%  milk has 2.5 grams of fat and 110 calories, 1 cup of 2% milk has 5 grams of fat and 130 calories, 1 cup of whole milk has 8 grams of fat  and 160 calories.  All have the same amount of calcium and vitamins.  3 cups is the recommended amount.  I've never heard of any nutritionist recommend whole milk.  My pediatricion said whole milk for when my son was a 1 yr old then move to 1% from 2yrs on up.

That's what we did at the day care I used to work at.  1 year old got whole milk, everyone else got 1%.  Her bf may need to work his way down if he is used to whole milk though
