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.

Background: Spain has shops called "droguerias" that sell everything from paint and glue to cleaning products to laundry soap and toiletries to expensive cosmetics and perfume. Just how expensive, I didn't realise, until today.
I walked past the cosmetic counter and heard a saleswoman tell a customer: "Well the repairing serum by itself is 240 Euros. If you add the moisturising protection cream it comes to 360."

360 Euros is like 450 USD or more. What is IN that stuff? Because you know darn well she's got less than a cup of each at that price.

I shudder to think what's in it. Princess poop? Elf tears? Or, as I read on a label in the 70's "wild stallion semen"? (And just who collected it, I wonder, let alone how!)

I forgot that I overheard this the other day. I was just leaving the apartment area with Olen, and two younger guys were walking in.

Guy A: ...it was jacked up.

Guy B: Really? How was it jacked up?

Guy A: On jacks. It was jacked up on jacks. Not like JACKED UP.

Guy B: Ohhh. I thought you meant jacked up.

I get confused with the kids' lingo. When people say someone is sick, I don't know how to take this. They are exceptionally good at something, or they are ill with a disease? There are others like this, and it makes me feel old and out of touch. (I'm okay with that).

Golly I wish I could have heard the rest of this conversation!!
Two women walking down the street behind us, and one says to the other,
"And then she married this monk, and..."
Unfortunately they turned a corner and the rest was lost.

In Spanish, "Se casó con un fraile" could mean "She had a monk (not a preist) for the wedding" or "she married a monk". So I needed context. Drat!!!

I could eavesdrop for Europe.

At the university there are often protesing groups walking around campus for various causes...I love it! Anyways, the other day there was a huge group of students chanting something like" we demand a free education" but they were far away.  These two guys in front of me on the stairs said to eachother, "are they saying "we demand free chicken" and it totally sounded like they were saying that.

Teenagers on the bus are great for overheards!
Latest was 2 guys about 15-16 talking about whether or not the draft and compulsory military service should be reinstated.

"Of course it's dangerous! It's a war! If nobody kills anybody, you're just having an argument!"

I was in an art gallery today having a look around, and there was a rather involved and graphic painting of a hell scene. As I looked at one nearby, a lady with two young girls stopped to look at it, and the lady started explaining to girls what hell is. I was fairly gobsmacked at her willingness to stand in front of a picture of people getting disemboweled etc while telling her daughters that thats what hell is and that's what happens to bad people. I was about to move away, when I heard this:

Girls: Are they killing them?
Mother: No, those people are already dead. You know when there are people who are really bad people when they are alive, like, for example Dick Cheney, but nothing bad happens to them when they are alive so after they die they go to hell to make up for it.

I almost wet myself :P Like, for example, Dick Cheney?! In a lecture to little kids! Hahahahaha

Maybe one of the guys in the painting looked like Cheney. That would have been great.

this isn't really overheard, nor really a vegan win. More like an extremely-awkward-self-reference-and-reference-to-veganism.

my group from school was at another school's "beef unit," where we were doing the breeding soundness exams of bulls. One of the people in my group (person A) is more familiar with food animal medicine, and wasn't really bothered by all the feces and the fact that you have to put your arm in the rectum, feces and all, to complete the exam. Someone else (person B) was totally grossed out, not used to food animal medicine, but worked with pets before.

...
B: "Doesn't that ever bother you - all the poop?"
A: "No, I don't think it's gross at all. I've had it on my face."
B: "What!! That's so gross. So gross."
A: "Well, they're herbivores. It's just undigested plant stuff."
B: "Yeah but poop is poop. I mean, you're saying that you're more grossed out by the cat and dog fecal exams?"
A: "Yeah! They're carnivores so their poop is totally gross. Herbivore poop doesn't smell. It's not the same."
B: "I don't see a difference. So you'd rather be covered in cow sh*t than do a fecal exam on a dog?"
A: "Yeah!"
B: "So fb's feces would be totally fine, but mine would be gross?"
A: " ... "
me: " ... "
B: "I'm just saying, 'cause she's an herbivore and I'm not."
A: " ... um..."
B: "Ok."
