Overheard at the Coffee Bean in the Alladin in Las Vegas

Aussie Lady: So, they gave me two 100 dollar bills. Is that bad?

Flibby: Yes, that's bad.

Aussie Lady: Why?

Flibby: Because it's hard to spend such large bills. You should get something smaller.

Aussie Lady: Well, your bills are quite large. Look at ours. [Holding out an Austrailian bill]

Flibby: Well, yours look counterfeit. See the plastic?

Aussie Lady: Of course it's plastic. You can wash it and everything.

Flibby: You can wash ours, too. They're made of linen and cotton. And they won't melt.

Noticing stares both blank and annoyed from the staff and the people in line behind us, I placed my order for some delicious peppermint ginseng tea.

Even though I hated the lady for taking so long to place her order (she really did) for some reason, I can't resist talking to strangers. It's a weakness.

My friends are often left not entertained by this habit of mine. *shrug*
