Walking home from work today I heard three conversations between people seemingly alone and someone I couldn't see. The first two were with someone only the speaker could see-- a snuffalupagus conversant, if you will-- and the last was a cell phone conversation. There were breaks between them, but I heard no other conversations during those breaks.
Guy #1: Dat's right! You know it. I don't know why people be thinking that we be safe and all that-- that's all part of the plan! That's all part of the plan! He, you know, he, the the the... president. He gonna tell us we all safe, but he is going to drop a bomb on Washington DC so it ain't here no more.
Woman, #2, sitting on a bench: I said help me! I said help me! Why don't nobody want to help me? What? What you say? Shut UP! I tole you I tole you shut UP! (pause) HELP ME! SOMEBODY HELP ME!
Guy, #3, on his phone: He gave me encouraging advice, you know. I hope I'll be able to submit it next semester... yeah.... no, not that track. The other one, the one upstate... yeah.... Have you been to that new track? The one in New Jersey... Are you going? .. Cause that track is gonna be the bombdiggity.
