Overheard: On an Island, the Only Topic (among others)

Overheard at Le Gamin in the West Village. A man and a woman meeting over breakfast.

Her: “I have become such a little real estate baron lately! I have been studying everything.”

Him: “Why? Didn’t you just buy your apartment?”

Her: “Yesssssss. But the value has gone up a quarter of a million in the last year and a half, so I’ve been looking around.”

Him: “Wow.”

Her: “Of course I can’t sell, because everything else is so expensive. It is just craaazy.”

Him: “Did you see that Bianca threw a party for Jade…….?”
