overheard

This morning:
two were packing lunches
one was eating leftover scrambled eggs
yours truly was reading interesting tidbits of online news.

Me: "You know Leona Helmsley, that billionaire hotel-chain lady who just died? She left 12 million dollars to her dog."

Friend #37: "What kind of dog did she have?"

(various reactions from bystanders)

Me: "She did leave $100,000 to her chauffeur, though."

Friend #12: "For that kind of money, I'd be a chauffeur."

Friend #37: "Not me. I'd dress up as a dog."
