"I'm gagging for a fag." - a tall, bald man behind the till in a cafe talking to a customer.
"She has a knack for it. Sticking her foot in other people's business." A woman in her thirties on the bus talking on the phone. She is chewing gum.
"You should be used to it by now. Him and his answers - never solid." Heard in the changing rooms in the gym.
Outside a pub in the car park
"Anne, I dropped the cake!"
No response. Anne is non-plused.
"No Anne. I was only joking. I haven't dropped the cake."
Anne stands there. Silent.
