Overheard in NOLA

From a woman, getting into a cab:

Take me somewhere not here.


It was so not a good night, for her. But an intriguing little snippet of someone's life for me.

Those are southern Pobble Thoughts. That and a buck fifty will get you coffee.

I love it.

I love the adventure of another person's life, in our mind, with just a snippet.

Little did she know the cab driver was a mendicant witch doctor with a penchant for women's shoes and tequila. As the ride to the non-specified destination wore on and on, she realized there was no way she was going to get out of that car without sacrificing last season's Prada pumps. More next week. same time, same channel...
