I eavsedrop

I was on a crowded 250 bus yesterday and two young women were standing right beside me. First they dispensed travel advice (ordering food in a restaurant in Italy takes forever and taking the ferry from Victoria to Seattle and Amtrack to Portland is great), then it got personal. Woman #1 "So, seeing anybody?" Woman # 2 "yeah, going out with a guy. He's really cute." Woman # 1 "Are you sleeping with him?" Woman # 2 "No, not yet. " Woman # 1 "Why not?" Woman # 2 "I don't know, he won't say. I told him 'we're dating, we're going out, why aren't we sleeping together?' " Woman # 1 "Oh, have you tried massage?" Woman # 2 "Massage?" Woman # 1 "Yeah, it's a great way to initiate things." Woman # 2 "Oh. Me massage him or him massage me?" Woman # 1 "Him massage you. It'll relax you too."

Walking along the Seawall my boyfriend we heard a French (France) younger woman say to her older lady friend "And, he had no idea I was apart of the Sex Society!" We then felt so bad that WE KNEW and whoever he was... didn't.

What's it got to do with me?

I'm confessing that I eavesdrop.

Besides, I'm a journalist and novelist. As they say; everything is grist for the mill.

Pretty hard NOT to evesdrop. All you need is ears.
Come up with something better if you are such a writer.
