eavesdropping

I admit I am an eavesdropper.

Sometimes, I just can't help it.  I'll be sitting somewhere minding my own business and over hear someone's conversation.  I don't intend to listen, but sometimes I do because it's way more interesting than what I'm doing.

For instance, while lying on the beach two weeks ago in Florida I overheard the following conversation between two women several yards away.  They were discussing education, and I believe one of them was an elementary school teacher.  One of her colleagues does a 15 minute exercise DVD each day in her classroom with her students, because as she put it, "I don't have time to do my workout, so I just incorporated into my class time.  That way I get my workout in, and my students get some physical activity as well."

How brilliant is that!  What a great teacher and what an imaginative way to get a workout in.  I don't feel guilty at all for eavesdropping on that conversation.

This WWII poster sums up the importance of a good workout,
'cause we all want to get hot, see.

What a cool teacher! Eavesdropping is quite entertaining. Have you ever seen the website "Overheard in New York"? It's very funny, I only read the clean ones though. You'd get a kick out of it:
