Eavesdropping From Far Away

As a former Manhattanite who's always amused to hear the odd things passersby say, I'm delighted to find Overheard in New York. Here's something I overheard in NYC many years ago, something I never forgot:

I was walking west on East 10th Street from University Place. As a couple walked past me, the man said to the woman,

"She pays her bills with psychic checks."

I'd love to create a site called Overheard in Sarasota, but I never hear people saying anything interesting in this town. Sad, isn't it.
