We often hear strange snippets of conversation as we walk through public spaces. When was the last time you overheard something so interesting, ridiculous, or disturbing you really wanted to know what it was all about?
That happens quite often enough. It can’t be helped you know.You’ll be walking along – on the streets, in a mall, in a coffee shop, at the post office, at the bank etc and suddenly there will be people who suddenly spoke up a little too loudly than they expected and what little snippet you heard make you wonder and go “Hmmm”.
For instant, the two college age girls I passed by at the bank, who were mock punching each other when one girl apparently punched her friend too hard and the friend went “Oh my ovaries! ” and my heard turned. Or something like “and he had a really big…” and you stop and try to listen to the end. “She then went down on…” and my mind wanders to territory that is so pleasant that there is no coming back. Or even something as innocent as “and then I swallowed some of it and it wasn’t all that bad!”
So people be careful when you raise you voices at the least unexpected moments for people like me who happen to be passing by and didn’t mean to eavesdrop but since the volume is high enough and the phrases sound interesting enough to make us want to know the rest :P
