Just another morning at the parking garage...

I parked in a different garage than usual this morning. Waiting outside my car to get a receipt, I could not help but overhear the 30-something dude standing next to the Lexus in front of my crapmobile. He was having a loud, animated conversation with someone on his cell phone. The prim, 50-ish blond woman behind me smiled and we exchanged one of those "Oy, this guy needs to shut up!" looks.

Said the guy to his invisible friend: "Man, I remember that girl! Hotttt! Those Scandanavian chicks give insane head, man! Insane!"

I popped one hand over my mouth, trying not to laugh. The blonde woman smirked. We both stared at the dude who finally noticed there were other people there.

Said he to us: "Well, they do! Just ask around!"

I replied: "Uh, I think I'll pass."

Said the blonde: "I don't have to ask. I'm from Iceland."

HA! Brilliant! I have no idea if she was from Iceland, but it was a marvelous reply.

Phone dude paused for a moment, laughed, and just turned away, continuing on his chat as if nothing had transpired.

City livin'. Helluva thing.

Yep! Would you believe I found that looking up "Swedish bikini team" on Google? Too funny.

And this is why I hate cell phones in public! Still, that is hilarious. What a wanker, though.

I think your anecdote qualifies for EavesdropDC....

OH that's too good.

I've got to start listening to people in parking garages more often, I do believe.

I guess now I'm picture Bjork in her swan dress giving head. Leda and the Swan, indeed. Great comeback from your street companion. It doesn't even matter if she's from Iceland. It was the absolutely best thing to say.

I think tomorrow I will randomly respond to someone "I don't have to ask. I'm from Iceland."and walk away.
