Overheard conversation in a post office in Paris

Posted by on May 14, 2006

I order a dozen stamps at the post office counter and then Melanie and I walk off to stick them while the Lad pays.

“Indeed,” says the Lad.

“A woman in Paris,” says the post office man, lost in a private and gloomy memory, “ees a disastair.”
