One of the best overheards in a long time came from Saturday’s Harfield Carnival:
Girl to boy: Try the hat on.
Boy: No, man, I don’t want to look like a twat.
Girl: The hat won’t make a difference with that, Dylan.
And then a classic put-down from a lady who was deciding between one of two summery sunhats:
To me: Which do you think is better, the grey one or the pink one?
Me: I like the pink one on you, plus it goes with your dress.
She turns to Rob, who is sitting next to me: And which one do you – oh wait, no point asking you, you’re wearing tie-dye.
(He’s still recovering from that one ! hahaha)
