August 31: Hearsay

Giggles, snorts, guffaws.

1. Direct Google: ‘The other day I was riding the L when I saw a woman charging her phone using an electrical outlet beneath the sea.’ Which led to my blog.

2. Direct Speech: ‘You like her folding bike, son? She uses it to travel around, going from circus to circus all summer.’ Gee, thanks.

3. Direct Hearsay: A guy my friend is meeting for a date suggests, ‘Forget the boardwalk on the waterfront. Why don't we meet at the shoe section in The Bay instead?’
