Declaraciónes de Amor

Yesterday, as I got off of the train, I saw a young man eyeing a young woman appreciatively. His half smile told me that he was sure to declare himself and not just walk by.

"Shut the f*ck up," he said.

"You shut the f*ck up," she replied.

"Before I take that [?] from you," she added.
(Ah, they know each other and have performed these courtship rituals before.)

Later, as I walked down the street I heard a woman yell, "I'm not picking you the f*ck up!" And then a child whimpered.

Maybe it was the same young woman, declaring a maternal love as she had earlier declared romantic love. Love is in the air.

ha, that is so funny. Reminds me of the overheard in New York site (maybe there's an 'overheard around DC' version?). Ah, the sounds of humanity and mankind's love for one another.

That was hysterical -- especially the "maternal love" part. :-) Damion is giving me the side-eye, as I'm still giggling.

Mirn--

Well now you know exactly how to declare your love for him (just don't say that you heard it from me).
