This may be further evidence of my ease of amusement, but one of my favorite things in the whole world is catching bits of conversation out of context. Sometimes I’m walking past a group of people, or at a party when the room suddenly goes quiet, except for one person shouting something over a din which is no longer there. The best ones are the kind that leave me mystified as to what could possibly have led to such a comment.
A recent example happened at Dragon*Con, as Tim3P0 and I were navigating the elevators in one of the hotels, trying to get from one place to another. This girl passed us, very agitated, asking her friend, “What is it with Hermione?! Everyone’s got a hard-on for Hermione?!”
Do you share this appreciation? What are some of the best out of context moments you’ve witnessed?
