I’ve been known to make a comment or two about the dull conversations that go on in this world, but every now and then I have to eat my words. On the way to work this morning I heard an interesting little snippet. I was walking past a couple of junkies who were making the most of a storefront alcove; they were staring hazily into the distance and working their way through a stockpile of pre-used cigarette butts. “Nah, he’s only fit because he shelves vitamins,” said one of them, maintaining his mindless gaze. I’m under the impression that he wasn’t talking about stock replenishment. Unfortunately I was running late so I couldn’t stick around to see where the conversation went, but the comment alone was the most fascinating thing I’d heard for a while. Perhaps I’ve been hanging out with the wrong crowd.
