It's been far, far too long since I shared something I've overheard with you, so I've got a good one to make up for it.
In a few weeks time I'll be going back to work, when the new University term begins again. It seems like I've been off forever.
I have been off for ever!
But when I do get back into the swing of things, if ever you catch me complaining about my job just remind me that I do get to sit in on lectures 4 days a week [how can that be a bad job?] and that better still, I get to listen-in on student's conversations before those lectures begin.
Conversations such as the following, which is a superb example of teenage male pleasures and priorities ...
Student 1, summarising the plot of the DVD he'd just pulled from his bag: There's these 3 women in bikinis who walk around with swords, killing zombies ... That's it ... Everything I need in the world ...
Student 2: Do you know what would make it even better though?
Student 1: What?
Student 2: If they were lesbians!
Student 1: Oh yeah! If they'd done that they would have made 'The Film'. No more films!
And then, somehow, I was meant to pick up my pen and concentrate while taking notes in the subsequent lecture ... it's a tough job sometimes you know? ;-)
Photo details: A card I made especially to accompany this post! Because, goodness knows I couldn't find a suitable photo on the hard drive to illustrate that particular conversation ...
Stamps on card: 'Silk' by Sweet Pea from 3DJean.co.uk and 'Heads' by Stampotique from Art From the Heart.
Just think, whenI go back to work there'll be a lot more conversations like that for me to share with you. I bet you can't wait .... eh?
