In the steam room at the leisure centre:

Man to woman reading a book: “Is it a good steamy one?”

She ignored him and turned the page.

He tried again: “Or is it just hot and sticky?”

She put her finger on the page and looked up.

“No,” she said, “Just nice and violent.”

Brilliant! I love overhearing weird stuff.

I love little snippets like that! I even remember to write them down sometimes :o)

Yeah, writing it down in the steam room was a bit tricky - luckily I had Memory Man with me and he remembered it word perfectly. Have discoverd that he is much better at picking up snatches of dialogue than me so I have officially appointed him as my 'interesting snippets' assistant and issued him with his very own notebook
