Three conversations overheard in various places:
Bookstore: cafe employee talking with woman about different places around the country, and the woman buying coffee says "…and she’s from Michigan, which isn’t really that great of a state."
Restaurant: three guys sitting next to me, talking shit about their wives. One of them mentions that his wife is pregnant, and his friend says, "she could come into work with me. We have a Chinese guy who works there, and they know a lot about twins."
Supermarket: woman talking to her husband (I’m guessing) on cell phone: "I have to get paper towels and toilet paper…(pause while husband says something on phone)…well, the paper towels in case someone has to wipe their hands, and toilet paper in case someone has to go to the bathroom."
