Overheard at the Hallmark Store: A woman told her male companion " God, I can't pick out a graduation card after drinking."
Overheard by the down escalator: A skinny 14 year old girl yelling tearfully into her cell phone "He told me doesn't love me anymore! I mean what the fuck?"
Conversation with the women at the cologne counter at Dillards:
Me: A bottle of Herrera spray cologne please.
Young blonde type: I'll get that for you.
Gorgeous Middle Eastern Type: Herrera? That is old stuff. You need to buy the latest from Hooo Go Boss. It's been out 2 weeks.
Me: Women like Herrera.
GMET: Women Like Hoo Go Boss.
Me: It's been out two weeks! How the hell do you know that?
GMET: She leans forward suggestively. I like the new Hoo Go Boss. I am a woman, right? Hmmmmm?
Me: Really I like what I like.
She points to blonde who rings me up.
Blonde says under her breath: I really LIKE the old Hererra.
GMET puts a sample of the new HoooGo Boss in my bag. She points at my chest.
" Tulane Tennis. You come back to see me if you want to buy something new."
I guess that shit works with some people.
Overheard as I walked past the cosmetics counter at Dillards on my way out:
Girl who made her first commission: I just-like I overheard her saying -made my first commission!
Gay guy I went to high school with who evidently busted out of being the "artistic director" of a theme park in Hot Springs that went bankrupt: How much girl?
Gay guy I went to high school with: No lie..
RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR with his tongue.
I cannot possibly make this up.
