Fun with Eavesdroppers...

Anyone else ever experienced this? You are out with a friend, shopping and enjoying conversation, when you notice that someone behind you is totally listening to everything that you and your companion are saying? In cases like that, I like to screw with the eavesdroppers. Case in point:

(Scene: The BLS and Mother of BLS are shopping for a birthday present for Older Brother. He had mentioned wanting a portable tool chest with wheels from Lowe's. BLS and Mother of BLS have found one and are happily chatting about the week's events when the BLS notices a middle-aged Martha Huber sort of woman (BONUS points to those of you who get that reference, by the way) hanging on to their every word.)

The BLS: Oh, yeah, you can TOTALLY fit a body in here! (pause) But to be safe, let's look at the hacksaws, too.

I thought my mother was going to lose it. But it was so freaking worth it!

The look on that lady's face must have been priceless. I love screwing with people that way. =)
