Woman #1 : I have an inkling.
Woman #2 : What's that?
Woman #1 : It's like a hunch.
Woman #2 : ...?
Woman #3 : You know, it's like a feeling.
Woman #2 : Hm... My boyfriend inklinged me up last night...

...I only wish I were making this up.

Yay for my first overheard post!

The old weird America
In front of the Frye, late afternoon:

WOMAN ONE: (in one of those walker things) WHAT is it that she calls you? "Bowser"?
WOMAN TWO: (also in one of those walker things) "Bowser", yes.
WOMAN ONE: Oh, no! (giggles)
10:15 am
Overheard last night at pine and broadway:

cute couple walking up toward broadway pass an incoherently rambling homeless (crazy?) person wearing headphones and walking in the opposite direction.

After they passed:
Boy said "Did you hear that guy?"
Girl said "yeah?"

Girl doubles over with laughter and chokes out "I almost peed my pants"

Conclusion: decision to get tacos at 10 pm - Success!

Was it good for you, too?
The toilets at work flush automatically...sometimes even when they're supposed to. Two women at the sinks:

Woman #1, loudly, over faucet noise: "We call it the Man Toilet. It flushes prematurely!"

Woman #2: giggles (and me, and probably everyone else in their stalls)

Woman #1: "All I did was move!"

Woman #2 et al: More giggling

Woman #1, realizing she'd been overheard and had gotten such a positive reaction, laughs louder and both walk out.

Girl: No.
Guy: That's fantastic!

Post Alley, Monday night around seven
A mom to her daughter, who was hopping delightedly and pointing to her cheeks: "OK, but not with a pen. We'll use one of my eyeliner pencils. And we have to wait until she's sound asleep."
