Maybe it is from years of being a teacher, but I can easily pick up other people's conversations in restaurants. (Maybe it could be people talk way too loud in restaurants too....) Today, we decided to do lunch at Havana Rumba, instead of dinner. These are a few fragments of conversation I overhead by a group of four people who were in their early twenties.....
* "Well, he was just in jail for stealing cars." (Emphasis on the just was mine.)
* "So, since he is in a halfway house, do you get to visit him at all, or can he just leave whenever he wants to see you?"
It is a weird talent, but one that has afforded me many laughs over the years.
