I love snippets of conversation. I get a great line, and can decide for myself where the rest of the story goes. Last night, I saw Oceans 13 (So many yummy men on one screen. It was almost like eating cotton candy with a Slurpee chaser. Too much!) They do a great bit with Clooney and Pitt. I don’t remember it exactly, but it went something like this:
Clooney: So what did you say?
Pitt: I said I wasn’t a pancake eater, and I left it on the floor.
Clooney: How long did it stay there?
Pitt: Till the next morning.
That’s it, the whole conversation. Love it!
Some other memorable snippets I have “collected”
2 guys in line behind me buying popcorn at the movies:
Guy 1: Do you want to hold hands?
Guy 2: Why? Is there some deal for couples?
Guy 1: No
One from the U of L cafeteria:
Server to his friend, while he’s scooping my mashed potatoes: So there I am, running across the parking lot with my Hutterite dress up over my head…
My son, at age 2, to a “Clifford” doll: Clifford, this is my life. (Sigh)
A bickering couple in line behind me during the Christmas shopping madness:
Guy: Well, good! Tell my brother I hope he enjoys syphilis…
