Overheard at Starbucks

22 Nov

A guy to my right must be about 45. He’s reading Eclipse in earnest.

But that’s not what matters. Behind me, on the stools, two friends run into each other.

I don’t know, this could be spurred by the book I have with me—Chaucerian Theatricality by John M. Ganim—but I suddenly hear one guy say to the other, “You know, I’m reading the Canterbury Tales now. And it’s just tale after tale after tale after tale.”

Lucky for them, they leave right after that comment. And before I can react.
