This was a conversation I over heard on the bus. I don’t know if I’m just getting old or what but I didn’t undersatnd anything from the conversation. And that was pretty much their entire conversation. One girl said “like” so much I wanted to slap her.

A group of teenagers are cutting up in the back. The bus reaches a crowded stop, where another group of teenagers is waiting to get on.

Girl in back: “Lord, my sister’s about to get on this bus.”
Boy in back: “Oh, that one with the backpack?”
Girl: “No, the one with the pajama-bottom-lookin’ pants and corner-store flip flops.”
