Gotta Love Yer Meat

In honor of the Overheard in New York blog I love so much, I've decided to start "Overheard Around The World" here at my blog onWednesdays. If I don't get enough responses, that's okay. It'll be from time to time.

I will begin with one we overheard last night when walking home from Thai food. A large man with a more than ample belly emerged with his spouse from the steak and ribs joint that literally serves only meat, patting said belly with a satisfied smirk.

"Sure am glad I'm not Muslim, 'cuz I love to eat meat!" he proclaimed into the deepening night as we passed by.

E. sniggered and whispered to me, "Muslims can eat meat; it's Hindus that don't."

But we let him believe the lie.


Do you have something that you overheard to contribute? Email me at: writelife (at) verizon (dot) net with the subject: "Overheard." Please let me know if you would like to be anonymous or go by name, and where in the world you're writing from!

Hmmm...I'll keep my ears open. Undoubtedly, all of hear memorable nuggets every day.

This is such a cool idea. I love that website! but I'd much rather give you my overheard bits. :)
