SCENE IV  –  About Cousin “T” It (Eavesdropping)

I know he’s cra-cra
Who wears meatballs for jewels?
I know …  Bea loves him!

Oh dear …  Cousin T!
What a surprise. Do join us.
Sit on the floor?  NO!

Why are you staring?
Drink your damn coffee, will you…
But … Me loves you girls

Helloooo? T speaking
I’m here with my girls, Beatrice!
We. Are. Not. MARRIED

Oh darling Cous’ T
We mustn’t do this daily…
Drinking coffee sucks!

Have you ever eavesdropped in a cafe before? Have you ever eavesdropped with your crazy cousin in a cafe before? Enjoy the drama. Have a good laugh on me. Add a few lines to the many conversations that take place in a crowded cafe. Come back later for even more hilarious conversations. TY Robyn!

SCENE V  –  Eavesdropping

Hi, secret lover…
Kiss, kiss. Love meeting you here
Oops! Here comes Johnny…

I knew it,  you…B#$%%ch!
You were cheating with my dad
Wait till mom comes home

What a lovely day!
Have coffee when it’s raining…
Sarcastic idiot!

Helloooo? … anyone home?
Pick up the phone … G…D damn it!
That’s it, NO DINNER!

If you ever need material for a post. Go to a public place and listen to the many conversations going on. You’ll enjoy the creativity.

My fellow bloggers were equally creative with their selections. Check out their posts below.

This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: Cousin It  We all have that one eccentric relative who always says and does the strangest things. In your family, who’s that person, and what is it that earned him/her that reputation? AND  Weekly Writing Challenge: Eavesdropping This week’s writing challenge revolves around my favorite inspiration: eavesdropping.

Positive Motivation Tip: Sometimes, the best stories come from seemingly unlikely  places. Stay Alert.

  • Ha ha ha, I need to eavesdrop more often, your post made me lol. Imagine what I could hear at the mall during Christmas shopping season.

  • Thanks for the good laugh. Once, I heard my 2 friends chatting at a cafe. It was hilarious

  • Ahhh, Cafe de Flore is gorgeous. Cafes are usually great places to hang out & well yeah, sometimes it’s fun to eavesdrop in conversations. But that isn’t intentional. You know how people sometimes tend to just talk a little louder when they’re talking to someone & you have no choice but to listen to them? Happens to me a lot.

  • What a cool statue 🙂 I love the first picture of the man. Very cool and creative.

  • Awh when I saw the quote by T.S. Eliot it really took me back. I want to go read some of his poetry right now.

  • People’s voices are just so loud sometimes that you have no choice but to eavesdrop. LOL. Love the architecture of that cafe. Gorgeous!

  • I am an eavesdropper. Can’t help it. Sometimes you hear some good stories.

  • I just busted up laughing! I am so going into random places and eavesdropping! I’ve spent years trying to do the opposite. And I would literally get annoyed hearing gossip. (especially in the workplace)…Now I have a new perspective. I’m gong to embrace it! 😀

  • That photo was interesting.. haha! I never knew there was a cafe that has a statue being there lol.

  • These are definitely some interesting conversations. I like that statue.

  • I once ears dropper on some strangers and found out they were discussing a guy from my class and its exactly what me and my friends where saying about this person cracked me up to hear it from somewhere else and not me and my girls

  • I love this post because I love coffee, beautiful pics and beautiful quotes. Thanks for sharing.
