If you are down and need to laugh a bit, check out Overheard in NY. I could read it all day… Here’s one from today’s batch of things overheard in NYC…
Hang On, Eggs Come from Animals?
Girl #1: Is egg dairy? Is that what they’re discussing?
Girl #2: Are they saying egg is meat?
Girl #1: I think it’s in the meat category.
Girl #2: Nooo.
Girl #1: I’m looking for a pyramid… Eggs are in the meat category, and it comes from an animal.
Girl #2: So does milk, though.
Girl #1: An egg can turn into a meat. Milk cannot.
Girl #2: Okay, I’m not discussing this anymore.

Bimbette #1: … And the pyramids! It’s like, you know, a total miracle! They’re huge! How did they build them without modern day cranes and stuff?
Bimbette #2: Yeah, I know, it’s… mystical! And the same thing with Eiffel Tower. I went to Paris last year, and that thing is just so high! Really, how did they manage to build something like that without equipment?!
