Overheard coffee shop chatter, late August 2023


These posts really write themselves.

  • “I’ll see you in the torture chamber.”

  • “If I’m starting with nothing, then I have nothing to start with, y’know what I mean?”

  • “Everyone’s leaving! Why is everyone leaving? […] Is it my hair?”

  • “I’ll bring it up. No mate, I’ll bring it up. No no, really, I’ll bring it up. Oh, ohhhhhhhhh [silence]. Okay, you bring it up.”

  • “I was fine when I got on, but not on the other end. A bit like Shakespeare.”
