Things Heard 1

In the bathroom at a bookstore.

Woman One: You know since we've been living together, I've been using a lot of tissue. We used like four rolls this weekend.
Woman Two: That is a lot.
Woman One: He asked me, "Could you please stop using fifty square feet of tissue every day?" I told him I can't help it if I want to make sure my na na is clean and dry!

They exit the stalls and stand at the sink.

Woman One: I'm thinking about majoring in ecology.
Woman Two: Why?
Woman One: I've been hearing there's a lot of money in that and you can do all sorts of stuff.
Woman Two: Like what? I mean, what do you become with an ecology degree?
Woman One: (pauses, gets an attitudinal inflection in her voice) You become an ecologist, what else?

Look at it this way, at least she wasn't talking on the phone. I've encountered too many cell phone conversations in restrooms lately.
