Table Talk

At busy lunchtimes venues, in cafes, bars and in the street, snippets of conversation can be both entertaining and intriguing if you pay attention to what’s happening around you. In the course of many Sunday buffet lunches at Winchester Mansions in Cape Town a few years ago, I jotted down a few of the comments overheard as I walked around. It was easy to hear them as the various speakers’ volume control appeared to be stuck on ‘Full’. Here are a few of my favourites:

“If you a have a bad shoulder, I’m a great believer in the value of aquapuncture.”

“The Secret Service has made itself so unpopular.”

“I just had to call the Eisenhower Library – it’s in Kansas, you know.”

“She knows the be old and end old of everything.”

“I can only give you a ball point figure.”

Lady, after sampling much cheese, “I don’t really like cheese but it is free.”

“My grandson has been suspended from school because of his problem behaviour. He’s been diagnosed with HDMI.”

“I love that black female American TV show host – Winnie Opry.”
