I’m finally ready to confess.
Hello, and welcome, friends to one of Mamamia’s favourite posts of the week. None other than (drum roll)… Open Post. For those of you who don’t hang around here much, Open Post is a special space where everyone can chat about what’s going in their lives.
To break the ice, I’ll start the conversation off.
I’ve realized that I am serial eavesdropper in public environments.
It’s a habit I’ve been trying to break for a while. But, the conversations that I manage to catch a snippet of are incredibly interesting.
Yesterday morning, as I was travelling to work on the bus, a woman who looked substantially more excited than most of us at 8:00am joyously jumped on the bus. She quickly struck up a conversation with the woman sitting behind me, much to her distaste.
The conversation lasted for the duration of the bus trip, approximately 30 minutes. It went from polite conversation, to this-is-good-enough-to-stop-listening-to-music conversation, to A GOSSIP-MAGAZINE-COULD-HEADLINE-THIS conversation.
