Snippets of conversation

One of the many small things that amuses me more than it should is when I overhear just one sentence of a conversation, and it's something totally absurd. For the last two years I've lived on a high-traffic floor of an Honors dorm, so you can imagine how outrageous these snippets can be.

Some of my favorites (pardon the language)...

From a guy VERY angry guy walking briskly through campus and talking on his phone: "Somebody ate all the fucking Sour Patch Kids!"

From some dude walking past my room:
"The thing that freaked me out was, there were three guys sitting by me...and they were all business majors."

From a guy in a parking lot at Kauffman Stadium:
"And he burned the fucking gumball machine!"

From someone in a dorm room near mine:
"Wait, wait! You're gonna need toilet paper!"

From two old ladies walking through the Intimates section at Target:
"We should buy thongs...underwear."

It's no surprise that sites like Overheard in New York and all its spinoffs appeal to me so much.

It's not often that I think about things other than sports, but it does happen. And when it does, I often want to write essays, to share those non-sports thoughts with...someone. But I'd rather keep my original site, Baseball and Other Things, reserved for sports stuff. So this is my new space for more random things, because there's not as much baseball to cover in the winter as there is during the summer...fancy that.

Here, let's start things off right, with a picture of a hot chick.



So, welcome!
