Overheard in Toronto (but not by me)

After reading “My Acting”, a funny conversation I recently overheard on the subway and posted on this blog, Toronto theatre artist Mark Cassidy drew my attention to his site, where he’s been collecting snippets of overheard conversation from around the city in preparation for an upcoming show with his theatre company, Threshhold Theatre. Here’s one I particularly liked:

Guy in line at Tim Hortons’:
(really quick, auctioneer-like delivery) Had a coffee already today, but I liked it so much, I think I’ll have another coffee.

Other person in line:
Can you say that any faster?

Auctioneer guy:
After I drink my coffee.

There’s a whole list of conversations here– some pretty intense- along with lots of interesting ideas about theatre creation.
Thanks, Mark!
