Four Overheards in a Row



Everyone’s back from the summer; the quiet streets are again filled with pedestrians. Today, a harvest of “overheard-in-passing” comments:

In a bookstore on Crosby St., a young mother to her twin(?) boys (all three in blue-and-white-striped shirts): “I’m going to look at the comic books. Wait here. No rustling, tustling, or complaints.”

On Prince St., young woman to young man: “There was no physical evidence.”

On Greenwich St., young man to young woman: “If you’re drunk and in a hurry…”

Vestry St., young guy on cell: “It’s a brilliant passion burger.”
