Dulltown, Europe: Today’s heraldic term is ‘statant’ – of a beast, standing facing dexter.

A selection of single overheard remarks or brief snatches of conversation from people passing in the street or talking loudly in cafes or pubs, that I have eagerly jotted down for you in my little notebook:

One of a pair of teenage lads: ‘I really wouldn’t like to be eaten alive by a zombie…’

An old gentleman: ‘They said it wouldn’t get any worse, but it has…’

Young woman to her friend: ‘He’d look very nice with a poodle…’

One of a pair of teenage girls: ‘I know she hasn’t got acne, but she’s got cracks…’

Young man to his girlfriend: ‘When you’ve still got blood on your socks…’

One of a pair of scruffy lads: ‘You’ll just get a fine or something – just say you did it…’

Businessman on his phone: ‘They keep upping and upping it – Jesus Christ!…’

Young woman on her phone: ‘You are innocent with sun cream on…’

A rushing mother of three: ‘The traffic gets dreadlocked this time of day…’
