Watch what you say!

This was a good week for keeking.

- A one way dialogue between two women in a shopping mall lot. One woman said to the other, without pausing for breath, "Do you know what's hard? I'll tell you what's hard. What's hard is..." Sadly, I never got to hear what was hard. I'm hoping she said, "...granite."

- Out for a walk in a wealthy suburban town, I saw a mom and her children walking a goat and three kids on leashes.

- In a large, chain hardware store with orange branding. One associate talking with another.
"Man, working here sucks."
"It's a job and it's better than sitting at home."
"Whaddya mean?"
"You get paid to pretend you can fix shit here. At home I gotta pretend for free."

- Three little girls running through a park with their arms spread, blowing raspberries. I think they were airplanes. This made me grin for days.

What have you seen or overheard lately?

    Downtown Chicago, mixed in with the suits who were racing to work was a man smoking a pipe.

    Not quite as good as the goats going for a walk...oh well.
