Usually I am content with my somewhat below-average hearing. I don't really want to hear what people are saying most of the time anyway. But last night, I did. While sitting in a restaurant, another party came in and took the table across a very narrow aisle. And here were the tantalizing snippets of their conversation that I plucked out.
"-so then we were all naked in the hot tub-"
I perked up, but it was several seconds before I could make out more.
"-and that was the last day she worked for the company-"
And that was all I could hear.
Damn you, shoddy hearing.
