Best Overheard Lines of the Week

Some overheard conversations are too good to leave undocumented.

Father to son at playground:  "Just remember: no involving innocent bystanders in your sword fights, okay?"

Girl: "What was the Colosseum used for?"
Father:  "They held gladiator fights there."
Girl:  "What are gladiator fights?"
Father:  "Well, they sort of were like football.... only different."

One college student to another while playing keep-the-balloon-in-the-air with kids:  "I don't care how old you are.  Never let a balloon hit the floor."

    You were eavesdropping on my husband? I swear every one of those could have come out of his mouth. I love 'overhearing' conversations like that.
