Tales Of An Eavesdropper

Conversation I overheard of three men wearing dark suits, polished shoes, and with scriptures in hand.  They could have been bishops.  The were all 40ish:

guy #1:  "blah blah blah….Superbowl."

guy #2:  "Ya, we watched it on the 52" flat screen I got for Christmas.  Only the third time I have watched anything on it."

guy #1:  "Too bad…been busy?"

guy #2:  "Well, I hooked up the Nintendo Wii to it and I have been playing that on it instead of watching shows."

guy #1:  "Sweet! We got the Xbox 360 and it rocks."

guy #3:   "Dude, I need to get me one of those."

  • And your point is….? You didn’t get the important info (make/model of TV and which games they were playing). hehe 😉 You should have told them to get Call of Duty 4. That game rocks.

  • Maryanne

    Ha ha! Did one of these “men” happen to be your husband? 😉

  • whim

    HA! If he hadn’t been home sick I know he would have been right in the middle of that conversation.

  • I saw this sign years ago, when I was a newlywed, in fact. “The difference between men and boys is the price of their toys.”

  • I bought my dad a bumper sticker when I was in high school that said “I may be getting older but I refuse to grow up.” It was the only sticker he ever put on his truck. I’ve come to realize that that sticker wasn’t made just for my dad. 🙂

  • Heh heh, guys and their game systems 😉
