Snippets of Conversation #3

In a waiting room in Mornington.

Two elderly people are passing me, a male and a female. They are 80+, at least, and the woman is either his Mother, or his very aged wife. Let’s assume the latter when we go back to the snippet I heard:

Woman: “He said you’ve got another 10 years! I’ll see you in a year.”

Man: (grumbles).

Woman: “He said you did very well.” (leaning over closer) “He said your heart is strong.”

Man: (grumbles).

Woman: “Of course it is Peter or you’d be dead by now!”

For sure wife. Such a wife thing to say.

You know, I thought that when you were old, death might be a topic you generally don’t wanna think or talk too much about. But this couple, oh geez… after my heart. ♥

And Peter’s is strong, don’t forget.

Snippets of Conversation #1

I hear some pretty interesting things when I’m out and about, and I don’t even try to eavesdrop in on other people’s stuff. Sometimes they are just so vocally forthcoming in letting the world know what is happening in their lives, you just can’t help but hear their conversations. I doubt I’m the only one privy to this phenomenon…

So today, in the first of this series, on a beautiful morning walk back to work with amazing coffee in hand, I hear:

“She wanted to fuck me/him so bad…”

What?!

Geez dude. I should have slowed down and listened to the juicy Jersey Shore-type convo between two smart-dressed young guys a little more…
