If Auntie was an uncle...

I admit it, I am a shameless eavesdropper. The conversations other people have on the bus fascinate me, especially the odd fragments you overhear which make you wonder about the context.

Overheard recently (from the same pair of women):

"If Auntie was an uncle, she would be like a dad to me."

"We'd better go now before the wasps start coming."

Mmm, could be an artspark possibility there...

LOL! I'm a shameless eavesdropper, and I love to invent whole stories to explain the bits I don't get. My favorite ever overheard conversation came from two old Jewish guys in a New York coffee shop several years ago.

First guy (grouchily): "You know, you got a lotta Jews marrying goyim these days."

Second guy (with a resigned sigh): "Yeah, but on the other hand, you got a lotta goyim marrying Jews too."

Hehe - I love eavesdropping on the bus and train too - I find public school boys are the funniest to listen to! :-)
