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.

My daughter and I were in the St. Petersburg library and she was getting a library card while I was waiting:

Librarian: And what is your email address?
Daughter: lost2literature@.....
Librarian: How do you spell "literature"?

:o

Oh Lor'!  ::)

Unless this idiot thinks "hiatus" means "uncontrolled spree." A lot of people use "big words" without actually knowing what they mean. I knew somebody who kept misuisng "moratorium." He thought it meant "ultimatim."

Like a Southern woman I met who said in my hearing, "I don't remember did I lose the tooth en-durin' the fight itself, or after." She meant "during", not "enduring."
So maybe they think you are ready, willing and en-able!

English speaking woman ranting to her friend about someone here who had pissed her off: "The dude is an evolutionary U-turn!!" I was not supposed to be eavesdropping so I had to start digging in my handbag in order to keep from laughing out loud.

lol! yg, I would have laughed. I know what you mean about not supposed to be eavesdropping though. But sometimes I really can't help but laugh when I hear things like that, or even just when someone says something in a funny voice. I think people do this to me all the time too because the way my mother and I talk to each other when we're in public gets a few chuckles. I'm definitely the boss.

I got caught laughing at a lady, it was the scenario and not her individually wearing a dust mask and making a big deal in duane reade. Well she call me out on it and it was all over for me, she started going on about how funny I think someone with allergies is. I got chew out and bursting out laughing all in between.

Well, apparently the Black Dahlia didn't either, which may be what got her killed...

Part of me wanted to run up to the car at the next light and ask if I could join them (for observational purposes only).
