03:38 pm - Hearing and being overheard
I was walking to work down Canley Ford, wearing my big headphones, when I decided to take them off to hear the birdsong. The cool air was quite pleasant so I said (probably silently) to myself 'fresh air on my ears'. It struck me as such a silly phrase that I said it aloud in a silly voice 'Ah! fresh AIR on my EARS!' and then I saw a guy walking his dog looking at me as if I was nuts. Sigh.

At lunchtime I was in a cafe when I overheard a guy talking to his workmates.

'Sex hasn't been easy lately, what with the little one in the bedroom. And the new baby doesn't help either!'

I thought it was an excellent self-deprecating joke, with a great lead-up.

Heh, that was a good line.

As for being overheard, I do that sort of thing, too, and it's tempting to try to follow up with something that will make you seem a little less crazy. But there wasn't a great deal you could do with that one. :-)

I think if he'd been nearer I might have said something, but he was at the top of some steps so I just blushed and hurried on.

Good plan, that, keeping them on their toes. Well done, carry on :)

That should be on a T-shirt. :)
