overheard

On Lambton Quay, yesterday, lunch time…

The pamphlet religious guy: “You’re on trial before the all-powerful God!” Hands out the pamphlet.

Shrill voiced lady, direct from set of Monty Python, takes pamphlet, glances at it: “No, I’m not!”

Pamphlet guy: “You’re on trial for your sins!”

Shrill voiced lady: “No, no, I’m not. I haven’t done nothing wrong!”

Pamphlet guy: “You have!”

Shrill voiced lady: “No, I haven’t! You’re wrong!”

I couldn’t see any cameras, I assume this was just another day on Lambton Quay. Surreal, Bosch-like people, and me, not wanting to escape this fascinating tableau, but returning to my desk anyway…
