I love walking my dogs through urban parks — gives me a great excuse to eavesdrop. Here’s a little exchange I overheard the other day at the tennis courts . . . .
A group of young women wearing matching skorts practice their tennis serves. A young man enters the courts, wearing a baseball cap. Seeing him arrive, one of the women yells across the courts at him:
GIRL: How come you’re late?
GUY: Got my hair cut. [removes hat revealing shaved head]
GIRL: [covers mouth] Oh! Does your fiancé like it?
GUY: I don’t know. She didn’t say anything.
GIRL: That’s usually a bad sign.
GUY: [rubs bald head] You don’t like it?
GIRL: Me? No! Shaved heads are weird. They remind me of pedophiles.
Ha ha! Everyone knows pedophiles are mullet-sporting atheists!
Oh, wait a minute… turns out we’re BOTH wrong.
