Overheard

When I was sitting at the bus stop downtown, two businessmen passed by:

Young Suit: I really like this town.
Older Suit: Yeah, if you could just get rid of the drugs, it'd be perfect.

One or both of them reeked of alcohol. Mmmm, irony.

Maybe he meant the drugs in their system :).

I think we should get rid of the suits, then it'd be perfect ! Yeah!

Francis - Your thought is less cynical than mine. I like yours better. :)

Ferd - Ha! I did give off the "I hate the wealthy" vibe, didn't I? (I really don't.)

No, I'm with you on that one. I don't consider myself wealthy, though I am comfortable and grateful. But I haven't worn a suit in a long, long time, being a bit of a doctor rebel. ; )

I really dig your "Overheard" posts. I always hear things that me laugh or say, "WTF?1" But I can never remember them long enough to write anything about them. I keep telling myself to keep a notebook around for this kind of thing... One day.

Ferd - Ah, okay! I misunderstood the comment then. :)

Jillian - There's a website called "Overheard in Minneapolis" that has bits of overheard conversations. I love that site.
