From Friday, March 28:
Overheard at the new Treasure Island in Hyde Park:
He: Oh, we forgot to get bagels.
She (acidly): Then get them.
I don't think she was hissing about the bagels.
Observed at the corner of 55th and Hyde Park Boulevard:
Man with cell phone to right ear and cigarette in left hand, woman with cell phone to left ear and cigarette in right hand—bookends.
They walked together, mostly, except when one or the other would veer off. When the other finally noticed, he or she would turn casually to catch up, without interruption to the phone conversations.
Nothing but love.
