i joined an eavesdropping “club” here in brooklyn. i haven’t contributed a blessed thing yet, so haven’t received the moleskin notebook and mechanical pencil that was supposedly part of the deal (i still don’t know if you really get this or not, my friend, theo could have been pulling my leg). i can’t seem to keep conversations straight in my head long enough, or i always think things I overhear are just your standard everyday….i was sent this one today by one of the EC members…i loved it so much I thought i’d post it:
Another overheard conversation from Katie.
Setting: a diner, lunch time.
Katie was having lunch with a friend when two frail old ladies took
seat at a table next to them. Looking over their menus and engaging in
idle conversation at first, an inevitable silence followed between the
two elderly friends. Fifteen minutes had passed without one single word
when one said to the other…
Old Lady: I’m having such a good time, I’m so glad you called!
