I thought it was about time I shared an Overheard with you - which I'll do any minute now - but you should know: I'm trying to eek them out and ration them because my back-catalogue is getting smaller ... my campus overheards are becoming quite rare! An endangered species.
I don't know what I've been doing wrong lately but I either need to start hanging around in more lectures and cafes on campus ... or I need to clean out my ears. I'll see if I can do both over the next few weeks, until which time, here's one I heard earlier ...
Scene: I was crossing the campus [on 19.02.10 to be precise - yes, I do keep such detailed records, thanks for asking] behind a group of students discussing the frosty, icy, weather when one of them shared this ...
Male student: "I slipped and nutted our front door."
"But it’s one of the council doors. Not a solid oak one ... so I didn’t mind that much."
You know that phrase 'where there's no sense, there's no feeling'? Yeah ... that.
