Overheard at Cottage

Guy 1: I think you have a coke problem.

Overheard at the Yale Game

Guy: Did Michigan steal our helmet design?

Overheard in Cafe Viv

White Girl: I just want you to know there is a really good chance that I am related to Taye Diggs.

Overheard at Alchemist and Barrister

Preppy-ish North Manhattanite: There's something so colonial about gin and tonics. British explorers used to drink them when they were civilizing the African natives.
Preppy North Jerseyite: I know--every time I drink one I feel as though I'm shouldering the white man's burden.
