Eavesdropping provides the best writing material. That's why I love the blog Overheard in New York. People say the most hilarious/revealing/heartbreaking things when they don't know that others are listening in. I occasionally pretend I'm Harriot the Spy, scribbling down the crazy conversations I overhear on the subway. Because you just can't make that stuff up.

This one made me laugh. Out loud. And then it made me cringe.

Hipster girl: Why is the sky blue?
Boy: I don't know. Let's never kiss again.

Sometimes we don't get the answers we want, girls.
