I’ve got a horrible tendency to listen in on random conversations. Just for research, you know. You never know what weird pieces of conversation will spark a story idea. “Can you believe that Cindy just called Bob and told him that…” Oops, that’s my coffee. Told him what? Okay, never mind, I’ll just make something up. And it will probably be much more interesting anyhow. With cell phones everywhere, it is so much easier to eavesdrop without recrimination.
So for today’s prompt, what random overheard pieces of conversation have you heard that give you interesting ideas for a story?
