Just Overheard

An Asian kid at the next table who’s been tapping away on his laptop just closed a cell phone conversation with, “Cool beans. See you later.”

Are you kidding me? That phrase jumped the shark in 1995, didn’t it? Did I miss a memo?

Asian Mafia Boy’s spot has just been taken by a mechanical equipment salesperson in a baby blue and white diagonal plaid shirt who has honed his sales voice to within an inch of Tom Cruise’s in Jerry Maguire. His poor wife. (By “his” I meant Salesboy’s, but come to think of it Katie seems like she’s up a creek too, so my heart goes out to both of them.)
