Introducing a new (and hopefully regular) feature on Hedonia, inspired by a conversation between several food bloggers at the Ferry Plaza Farmer’s Market (surely the best place to run into all your favorite online foodie sublebrities, myself included). We got talking about the little snippets of conversation that
are overheard at the market, in restaurants or are otherwise
food-related that, when taken out of context, are funny, gross,
alarming or just plain random, à la SFist’s Yvesdroppings feature. I’ve always found great amusement in these little insights into people’s lives, and decided it would make a fun feature. And so without further ado, I present the inaugural edition of The Eatsdropper:
Man: "Did you see those tomatoes?"
Woman: "I almost made love to those tomatoes!"
Vendor: "Yeah, ’cause shipping ten pounds of ground beef to New York just isn’t in my business plan."
Diner, gesturing toward his own loins upon considering a tuna loin entrée:
"How can a tuna have a loin?"
Father, loudly to son and daughter-in-law across the table:
"So when was the last time you had sex?"
Dude, walking with buddy, slaps his own belly: "I’m a carb boy!"
-Eatsdropped by yours truly on Sansome Street
